2020 Volkswagen Jetta vs. 2020 Toyota Corolla

Coming off of a very well-received redesigned just a year ago, the latest Volkswagen Jetta to arrive at the Team Gunther VW showroom adds several important updates to build upon the model’s success. A comparison of the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta vs. 2020 Toyota Corolla will provide potential owners of either vehicle with important information about how the VW sedan is able to outperform its Toyota competitor in several important areas. A brief look at the spec sheet of each compact sedan will reveal that the 2020 Jetta offers more standard power than the 2020 Corolla and a standard manual transmission for drivers who like that sort of thing. Also, VW has made its smartphone-compatible infotainment system standard equipment for the 2020 Jetta.

Both the 2020 VW Jetta and 2020 Toyota Corolla can hold five passengers. However, the 2020 Jetta offers more legroom for people sitting in the backseat versus what is available in the 2020 version of the Corolla. Additionally, the 2020 Jetta has 14.1 cubic-feet of trunk space, edging out the trunk volume found in the Corolla. Independent online reviews have praised the 2020 Jetta for offering a lot of in-cabin storage options. Both vehicles are equipped with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility across each compact sedan’s entire trim ladder. One of the major improvements Volkswagen made to the 2020 Jetta is the addition of wireless device charging to the SEL and SEL Premium trim grades. People who choose to take the 2020 Corolla home will be limited in which of its trims will be eligible to have the special accessory package added at an additional cost.
