2015 Toyota Corolla vs. 2015 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 Corolla than the Volkswagen Jetta. The Toyota Corolla will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta.

Convenience
The Volkswagen Jetta requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Toyota Corolla, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Toyota Corolla will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Corolla and the Volkswagen Jetta have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Toyota Corolla is about the same width as the Volkswagen Jetta. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Corolla takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Jetta.

Drivetrain

Handling
The Toyota Corolla has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Jetta, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Corolla and the Volkswagen Jetta. The Toyota Corolla has less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Jetta, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
