Engine Power

Let’s begin with what matters most: power.

  • The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta – In the Jetta, you can choose from three different engines: a 1.4L engine that realizes 150 hp and generates 40 mpg on the highway**; a 1.8L engine that realizes 170 hp and 35 mpg on the highway**; and a 2.0L engine that promises 210 hp and achieves 33 mpg on the highway**.

  • The 2017 Toyota Corolla – The 2017 Corolla only gives you two engines: a 1.8L 4-Cylinder engine that gets 140 hp, or a 1.8L 4-Cylinder engine that provides no more than 132 hp. Nor will it get more than 36 mpg on the highway.


Likewise, the Jetta comes with a number of exciting new technologies to keep you entertained, connected, and informed.

  • The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta – For example, the Jetta comes with a touchscreen sound system with a 5-inch color display, making track selection and volume adjustment simple, as well as a VW Car-Net App-Connect and a 6.33-inch color display touchscreen navigation system that will make your next drive as reliable as can be.

  • The 2017 Toyota Corolla – The Corolla provides Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite as well as a Backup Camera and Standard Bluetooth Technology, as well as some pretty large screens, but you won’t get VW Car-New App-Connect.
