Nissan Sentra vs. VW Jetta — Engine Power

The VW Jetta and Nissan Sentra offer different standard engines in their base models, with the Jetta engine being just a bit smaller. Take a look at the Jetta and Nissan engine specs:

    • 1.4L Turbo I-4 engine
    • 147 hp
    • 184 lb-ft of torque

There are plenty of similarities in the Jetta vs. Sentra engine comparison.
