Comparing the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta Vs. the 2018 Toyota Corolla

2019 Jetta vs. 2018 Corolla

For consumers searching for an appealing and practical sedan, both the new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2018 Toyota Corolla are popular choices. When trying to determine which vehicle is best suited for drivers in the Harrisburg, PA area, it is a good idea to compare some of the specs of these two cars.

Standard Features

Both models come equipped with back-up cameras, tire pressure monitoring systems, and similar seating capacity.

  • Back-up cameras provide increased visibility and safety when driving in reverse.
  • Tire pressure monitoring systems warn the driver in the event of low tire pressure.
  • Both vehicles have seating for up to five passengers.

Despite the similarities, there are some differences that set these two vehicles apart.

  • This 2019 Jetta is the first Volkswagen in the U.S. to feature the premium BeatsAudio™ system.
  • The Jetta includes a turbocharged engine to provide a faster, more powerful ride.
  • In addition, the Jetta comes with alloy wheels to provide quicker acceleration and faster stopping, and alloy wheels also put less strain on suspension components. In contrast, the Corolla comes with steel wheels which are heavier and provide slower acceleration.
  • The Jetta provides the driver with a smooth and sporty ride due to its’ superior Torque value of 184@1400 RPM, compared to the Corolla’s 138@4200 RPM.
  • The Volkswagen comes equipped with Post-Collision Braking which automatically slows down the vehicle after a collision to avoid a follow-up impact. This feature is not available in the Corolla.
  • The Volkswagen has additional trunk volume with 14.1 cubic feet as compared to the 13 cubic feet in the Toyota.

While both models offer a warranty, the Volkswagen warranty is superior. The Jetta’s People First Warranty provides 6-year/72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage as compared to the Corolla, which provides a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty.

Overall, both of these vehicles offer appealing options to any consumer. But if you’re looking for a new sedan that stands out from the rest of the competition, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is a great choice.
