Differences between the 2017 VW Jetta and 2017 Toyota Corolla

Not only does the 2017 VW Jetta offer a more fuel efficient ride at the base level when compared to the Corolla, it is also the sportier one. The turbocharged 1.4L I-4 engine in the Jetta provides 150 horsepower, easily outclassing the 132 horsepower in the Corolla. There are two additional engines that are available in the 2017 VW Jetta that help it outperform the Corolla. Next up is the 1.8L I-4 turbo with an impressive balance between power and efficiency with its 170 horsepower and 35 MPG rating. Those who want a truly thrilling driving experience should look into the 2.0L turbocharged I-4, which outputs 210 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque.

The 2017 VW Jetta also pulls ahead of the Corolla in terms of tech features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is a highly sought after feature for new cars. The 2017 Jetta offers compatibility with both with its impressive infotainment system and front screen. While the Corolla also includes a screen up front, it does not have CarPlay and Android Auto as an available feature. The Jetta doesn’t stop impressing there, though, as we also highly recommend its booming 400-watt Fender premium audio system.
