2017 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2017 Toyota Corolla

With time-tested reliability and a reputation for quality, both Toyota and Volkswagen have battled each other to gain the respect and business of car shoppers. Two of their most popular models are often put side by side when looking for a trusty sedan to get you from point A to point B, and while it can be difficult deciding which is right for you, we’ve done the dirty work for you. Check out the comparisons below of the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2017 Toyota Corolla.

We can talk about the extra gadgets and features all day, but when it comes to the dirty work, the Jetta cleans up quite well in comparison to the Corolla. The base engine, a 1.4L turbo, ensures you have enough power to get up the steepest hills and roughest terrain but it merely sips on the fuel. Unfortunately the Corolla doesn’t quite match up, and you’ll see why in the table and additional comparisons below.

Safety in the 2017 Jetta

Toyota is usually associated with safety, and for good reason. However, what many might not know is that despite all the performance features listed in the Jetta, it also comes with an abundance of safety features as well. It has been awarded a 5-star rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as well as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This recognition is made possible by intelligent safety features such as the automatic post-collision braking system as well as an intelligent crash response system. Thanks to a high-strength steel frame and a tough safety cage, you’ll hopefully have some peace of mind if a collision seems imminent.

The Corolla has its own set of features that give it a positive identity, but in this comparison, the win goes to the Jetta thanks to its performance and safety features. Get up close and personal with the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta here at Hall Cars in Brookfield!
