Performance Options

The 2022 Volkswagen Jetta continues a line of compact cars that excite with performance, and it's an area where the Volkswagen sedan easily bests the Toyota Corolla. The Volkswagen Jetta comes standard with a 158-horsepower engine with 184 pound-feet of torque, while the Toyota Corolla comes with a 139-horsepower engine with 126 pound-feet of torque.

A More Enjoyable Interior

The exterior of the 2022 Volkswagen Jetta focuses on compactness, but the interior is all about comfort for five passengers.

The Volkswagen Jetta has more legroom in the rear row and wider rows of seats than the Toyota Corolla - this extra space is great if you're carpooling.

The new Volkswagen Jetta offers finer interior materials and more trunk space than the Corolla, so it is a mix of style and utility!


Compact cars provide great value, and part of that comes from the features you find in them, which is another area where the 2022 Volkswagen Jetta excels. The Jetta features many driver assistance features similar to the Toyota Corolla. Still, it holds a distinct edge with the standard Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Assist - you can't find this technology standard on the Corolla car.

Another amenity not available in the Toyota Corolla is ventilated front seats, a life-saver on hot summer days! Both compact cars share other features, like forward collision warning and Automatic Emergency Braking, but the new Volkswagen Jetta has more in store for you than the Toyota Corolla does.
