The market for compact sedans is one that is filled with competition. In a market that is commonly dominated by manufacturers like Toyota, Mazda, and Chevrolet. Volkswagen El Paso is throwing its name into the ring with the newest edition of the 2019 Jetta. The Jetta represents a very real competitor for some of these top manufacturers in the market. It's been completely re-designed and it can offer some very competitive packages for customers that are willing to try out the latest edition Volkswagen. Even in the base model it's quite well-equipped and priced around the same as a typical Toyota Corolla. If you are thinking of investing in a car like a Toyota Corolla it's important to look at some of the competition. Here are some of the comparison specs between the new 2019 Jetta and the 2018 Corolla models:
The 2019 Jetta is better rated
The current edition of the Volkswagen Jetta remains one of the best compact sedans available at its price point. Volkswagen has almost completely redefine this car for the year 2019 including new five star safety rating features. The newest 2019 edition of the Jetta also has upgraded interior cabin space, trunk space and the refinement that you would find in a midsize vehicle of a different price point. This is a vehicle that's heavily complement it by technology and an improved ride that is taken from Buick technology. The many interior finishes inside make this a vehicle that is bound to appeal to many age groups.
The ride of this vehicle has been adjusted significantly with a new transmission gearbox as well as a smoother suspension system. This is a vehicle that cruises along unlike anything else in its class. The Jetta is one of the best cars for commuters who value comfort and it also comes with an improved fuel consumption rating and a style that is bound to resonate with almost any age of the driver. The improvements that are available for riders also improves when we go into the back seats, the climate control and the 8 inch infotainment system that can be added in.
The 2018 Toyota Corolla
The 2018 Toyota Corolla is designed as a fairly average compact car. The car itself is quite competent on the roads and it's designed primarily as a fairly flexible compact car that can get you through almost any type of commute. With a refined package that has been a popular vehicle for generations now, the Corolla dominated the 80s and 90s in the compact market and has since faced fairly steep competition now from Volkswagen as well.
What you see is what you get
Almost all of the options from Toyota in the Corolla model are fairly stripped-down and there is really no premium edition of the Corolla. What you see is what you get with this vehicle and the power has definitely been scaled back for 2018 as well. This does deliver an impressive fuel consumption rate on the Corolla but it's by no means as economical as the Volkswagen for fuel economy.
Comparing the two:
The Corolla is a little bit smaller than the Volkswagen, it is around the same price point and it's considered to be a very conservative car. If you're looking for a hatchback it does offer an excellent body type in the iM model. This great value with Toyota and the warrantee is fairly competitive as well. The modern Toyota Corolla however does not stack up to the same results in fuel consumption, safety or the options available for upgrading the interior or engine packages.
