2016 Volkswagen Jetta vs. 2016 Toyota Corolla

Routine, everyday living doesn’t have to feel so...well, routine. While it is important to have a car that is safe and reliable, it would be nice to have one that is fun to drive as well, a car you can look forward to getting into at the end of your work day. While your life is big and full, you don’t necessarily need a massive vehicle to carry you around town. A smaller car will suffice, and the market is loaded with plenty of quality compact sedans worthy of your attention. Let’s compare the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta vs. the 2016 Toyota Corolla.

When looking for a smaller car, fuel efficiency is a key component. In fact, high fuel efficiency is one of the biggest draws of compact cars. The 2016 Volkswagen Jetta gets an estimated 28 city and 39 highway miles per gallon. The 2016 Toyota Corolla falls short of that with 27 city and 36 highway miles per gallon. The Jetta can also hold more gasoline in its 14.5-gallon fuel tank than the Corolla can hold in its 13.2-gallon fuel tank. With that kind of fuel economy and fuel capacity working in tandem in the Jetta, you won’t have to interrupt your daily commutes with a stop at the gas station as often.
