2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2019 Toyota Corolla

On your commute to and from work today, you’ll probably see quite a few compact sedans traveling on the roads that you take. Since they achieve high marks in both fuel economy and tech innovation, two aspects that are ideal for budding professionals, it’s no wonder why these vehicle types have become (and stayed) so popular in the public eye. For the 2019 model year, two familiar faces – the Volkswagen Jetta and Toyota Corolla – keep their momentum and class-leading reputations on an upward trend, making both of them worthy choices for your next vehicle.

We know, however, that with so many choices in today’s sedan market, it can be difficult to pinpoint the right one for you. That’s why Gorman McCracken VW has put some research together on the 2019 Jetta and Corolla models – come check out how they stack up one-on-one!

One look at the chart above and it should be clear who holds the upper hand – not only does the 2019 Jetta offer better power and equivalent fuel efficiency to its Corolla counterpart, but you can also expect two-tone V-Tex leatherette seats (which are heated and ventilated) to aid in your ultimate goal of comfort on the drive. Add this to a 10-inch Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, 8-inch touchscreen navigation interface, and the following driver assistance features (many of which are not included onboard the 2019 Corolla), and the choice is clear – Betta Getta Jetta:
