2016 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2016 Toyota Corolla

If you're in the market for a compact sedan, then the VW Jetta no doubt deserves a spot at the top of your list. But we don't want you to just take our word for it. In order to help you compare models in the segment, we've done some research to compare the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2016 Toyota Corolla.

We'll get started right away with one of the big questions compact sedan shoppers have, which regards fuel economy. After all, it's one of the key reasons buyers opt for a compact rather than a midsize or larger sedan. So, when comparing base fuel economy figures, it becomes clear the Jetta has the edge with its 40 mpg highway.

The Jetta also takes top spot when comparing engine power, regardless of whether you're comparing just the base models or not. The 2016 Jetta's new standard engine puts you in control of an impressive amount of power, and things can get even more powerful with the optional 170 horsepower engine or sportier 210-horsepower GLI model.

Comparing the 2016 VW Jetta and 2016 Toyota Corolla Differences

Moving into the interior of each vehicle, you're certain to find plenty of space, though the Jetta does offer a bit more cargo space.

There is also the available VW Car-Net App-Connect system for smartphone integration with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, something not found on the 2016 Corolla.

Safety also presents a major difference. While the Jetta received an excellent safety rating from the IIHS by being named a 2016 Top Safety Pick+, the Corolla did not receive that distinction.
