2017 Toyota Camry vs. 2016 Volkswagen Jetta Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry than the Volkswagen Jetta. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta, the Toyota Camry may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Camry as you will with the Volkswagen Jetta, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Toyota Camry is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Jetta. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Camry will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen Jetta.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Camry is much wider than the Volkswagen Jetta, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Toyota Camry, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Jetta.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Toyota Camry doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Jetta.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Camry is somewhat more powerful than the Volkswagen Jetta.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Camry and the Volkswagen Jetta. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Toyota Camry as you will in the Volkswagen Jetta.

Warranty
The Toyota Camry comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Jetta.
