Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Accord Hybrid offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volkswagen Passat with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord Hybrid, drivers may find the Volkswagen Passat a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Accord Hybrid as you will with the Volkswagen Passat, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Honda Accord Hybrid is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Passat. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Accord Hybrid and the Volkswagen Passat have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Accord Hybrid is a little wider than the Volkswagen Passat, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Honda Accord Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Passat.

Drivetrain
The Honda Accord Hybrid has much less torque than the Volkswagen Passat, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda Accord Hybrid has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Passat, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Accord Hybrid has less horsepower than the Volkswagen Passat, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Accord Hybrid and the Volkswagen Passat. The Honda Accord Hybrid has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volkswagen Passat.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Accord Hybrid is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Passat.
