2020 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2020 Toyota Corolla

Serving Troy, MI

Deciding between the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2020 Toyota Corolla is not easy to do. These compact cars both have a long-standing history with modern styling and features. However, their differences begin with pricing. The Jetta entry-level trim is priced noticeably below the Corolla’s base MSRP. What other differences should you be aware of?


The lovely exterior of the 2020 Jetta is defined by horizontal elements running across the hexagonal grille and through the side panels. Both the LED headlights and the lower foglamp portals have arrow-like traits that add modern character to the front end. You could also find a power sunroof, remote entry, heated side mirrors, and more across the exterior of the Jetta. The 2020 Toyota Corolla, on the other hand, is primarily defined by the dominant grille on the front end. The nose protrudes outward slightly to highlight the grille’s size. Air vents and LED headlights sit on the sides of the grille. The profile shows an upright cabin that gives the Corolla a sedan-style look.


The interior of the Jetta for the 2020 model year is beautifully modern with a digital screen for the driver’s gauges, a digital infotainment system screen, and your choice of 10 colors for the ambient light system. Additional features in the Jetta are leather seats, a wireless charging station, a heated steering wheel, a push-button ignition, and other items. In the Corolla, the cabin’s design is clean, with a ledge design throughout the dashboard. This design creates separation between the center console and stack. The top of the stack holds a floating display screen for the infotainment system’s features.


The 1.4-liter turbo engine in the Jetta is designed to deliver 147 horsepower to your fingertips. Drive mode selections and a cross differential system add to the extraordinary performance abilities of the Jetta. The Corolla for 2020 draws 139 horsepower from its 1.8-liter gas engine. Its continuously variable transmission adds to its capabilities.
