2020 Jetta Cutaway

2020 VW Jetta vs. 2020 Toyota Corolla: Size & Comfort

Some compact cars are a little too compact to be enjoyable for rear-seat passengers on long drives, but the VW Jetta gives you more rear seat room than the Toyota Corolla. The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta offers almost 3" of extra rear seat legroom compared to the 2020 Toyota Corolla as well as more shoulder room throughout the cabin. More room to spread out makes the 2020 VW Jetta a more comfortable choice.

Furthermore, fully-loaded 2020 Volkswagen Jetta models offer some exclusive features you can't get on the 2020 Toyota Corolla. Your VW Jetta can offer luxury car comforts without the luxury car price thanks to options like leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof and ventilated seats. You can't get those features on the Corolla.


2020 Jetta Smartphone Features

2020 VW Jetta vs. 2020 Toyota Corolla: Features & Technology

A touchscreen multimedia system comes standard on the 2020 Toyota Corolla, but Android users will quickly notice something is missing. While the 2020 Toyota Corolla comes standard with Apple CarPlay™ for pairing your iPhone to the infotainment system for hands-free communication, Android Auto™ is conspicuously absent. The 2020 VW Jetta features a touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ as standard! So, no matter which smartphone team you're on, the 2020 VW Jetta plays nice with both.

The available Volkswagen Digital Cockpit replaces ordinary gauges and dials with an all-video gauge cluster that can be customized to show important information right in the dashboard. An all-video gauge cluster isn't an option on the 2020 Toyota Corolla.

2020 Jetta Rear End

2020 VW Jetta vs. 2020 Toyota Corolla: Efficiency & Drive

Both these cars can get up to 30 MPG in the city, an impressive result for a gas-powered car, but the VW Jetta is even more efficient on the freeway. Where the entry-level 2020 Toyota Corolla only gets 38 highway MPG, the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta gets an even 40, making it the superior commuter car for Southern California.

You might expect that the more-efficient engine in the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta is less powerful than the 2020 Toyota Corolla -- but the Jetta defies these kinds of expectations. The Volkswagen Jetta makes a little bit more horsepower than the Toyota Corolla, but a whole lot more torque, for a whole lot more quickness when leaving a stoplight.


2020 Jetta Seatbelts

2020 VW Jetta vs. 2020 Toyota Corolla: Safety

The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta offers some available driver assistance features, such as blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, that you won't find on any 2020 Toyota Corolla. The 2020 VW Jetta can also be equipped with features available on both models, such as forward collision alert, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control.

In the event of a crash, both vehicles will provide class-leading protection for you and your family. They both earned five-star overall safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.


2020 Jetta Warranty

2020 VW Jetta vs. 2020 Toyota Corolla: Warranty

A big reason why the Toyota brand has done so well is its reputation for reliability and longevity -- but Volkswagen stands behind the quality of their vehicles even longer! With a 4-year/50,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, you won't have to pay a dime for any repairs required by your car through no fault of your own. The entire vehicle is protected. The 2020 Toyota Corolla has only a 3-year/36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.
