2022 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2022 Toyota Corolla

The 2022 Volkswagen Jetta is just one of many compact sedans that are available to buyers in Ontario looking for a compact vehicle that will surpass expectations on both fuel economy and on-road performance. One of the Volkswagen Jetta’s main competitors is the 2022 Toyota Corolla, redesigned a few years ago and usually among the most popular vehicles in its segment.

That said, both the Volkswagen Jetta and the Toyota Corolla have very distinctive personalities that make them the best purchase for different types of buyers. This year, however, the 2022 VW Jetta has received significant improvements that make it even more appealing.

  • Packed with more technology

The 2022 Volkswagen Jetta has the advantage over the Toyota Corolla in terms of power

While the Toyota Corolla offers two engines to consumers, the Volkswagen Jetta only has one available powertrain and yet it is more powerful than anything the Toyota Corolla can offer. Powering the 2022 Jetta is a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 158 hp and 184 pound-feet of torque. This engine has been significantly improved this year and delivers more torque at a lower RPM than any other engine in its segment out of the gate. It is quite a bit more powerful than anything the Corolla can offer which comes standard with a 139-horsepower engine while a 164-horsepower engine is optional. The latter may have more power, but what really matters in daily driving situations is torque.

Torque is what will get you off the line quickly and is what will make passing feel more confident. Therefore, with more torque than any other compact sedan, the Jetta simply feels faster than any of its competitors.

It is also more enjoyable to drive thanks to the traditional 8-speed automatic. The Corolla uses a continuously variable automatic transmission which to many drivers feels too elastic and not natural enough.

The 2022 Volkswagen Jetta also has the advantage when it comes to interior space both in the trunk and in the passenger compartment where it offers more space than the Corolla despite similar outside footprints.
