This engine gets 150 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque compared to the Corolla, which gets 132 hp and 128 lb.-ft. The new Jetta also comes available with two other engine selections, a 1.8L TSI, 16-valve, DOHC, in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with direct injection and intercooler and a 2.0L TSI, 16-valve, DOHC, in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with direct injection and intercooler. The Corolla does not get any more engine choices, however the Corolla LE Eco model's engine comes with Valvematic technology which allows for better gas mileage.

Another reason people choose the Jetta over the Corolla is for its available technology. The Jetta comes with Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect found standard on all SE trims and above. This media system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, which allows you to turn your Jetta's touchscreen display into a smartphone on wheels. The Jetta also comes available with safety technology like Volkswagen Car-Net Security & Service, Blind Spot Monitoring System, and Park Pilot, all of which are not available on the new Corolla.
