Comparing the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta and 2020 Toyota Corolla

Volkswagen has lots of fans, and we also see many drivers interested in switching over to a new Volkswagen car or SUV from other popular automakers. Drivers love the reliability, style, and fun that they have in Volkswagen models, and one specific model excelling in these traits is the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta.

This compact car icon goes up against a crowded sedan class and models like the 2020 Toyota Corolla, yet the Volkswagen Jetta still manages to come out on top. Read on to compare the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta and 2020 Toyota Corolla!

Performance Options

The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta continues a line of compact cars that excite with their performance, and it's an area where the Volkswagen sedan easily bests the Toyota Corolla. The Volkswagen Jetta comes standard with a  147-horsepower engine that has 187 pound-feet of torque while the Toyota Corolla comes with a 139-horsepower engine that has 126 pound-feet of torque.

Plus, the new Volkswagen Jetta has easier handling and a transmission that moves more quickly between gears than the new Toyota compact car.

A More Enjoyable Interior

The exterior of the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta focuses on compactness, but the interior is all about comfort for five passengers.

The Volkswagen Jetta has more legroom in the rear row and wider rows of seats than the Toyota Corolla, and this extra space is great if you're carpooling.

And, the new Volkswagen Jetta offers finer interior materials and more truck space than the Corolla, so it truly is a mix of style and utility!


Compact cars provide great value, and part of that comes from the features you find in them, which is another area where the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta excels. Android smartphone users will enjoy Android Auto in every Volkswagen Jetta, but that smart program is not available in the Toyota Corolla.

Another amenity not available in the Toyota Corolla that's a feature of the Volkswagen Jetta is ventilated front seats, which is a life-saver on hot summer days! Both compact cars share other features, like forward collision warning and blind-spot monitoring, but the new Volkswagen Jetta has more in store for you than the Toyota Corolla does.
