2020 Volkswagen Jetta vs. 2020 Nissan Sentra

What’s the best compact car for Vineland drivers? That depends on a lot of factors, which is why it’s smart to comparison shop. Volkswagen of Salem County gives you a head start by comparing the new Volkswagen Jetta vs. Nissan Sentra. See how they stack up in a variety of areas.

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:

  • VW Jetta
    • 1.4L Turbo I-4 engine
    • 147 hp
    • 184 lb-ft of torque
    • 6-speed manual transmission
    • FWD
    • 30 mpg city / 40 mpg highway
  • Nissan Sentra
    • 2.0L I-4 engine
    • 149 hp
    • 146 lb-ft of torque
    • Continuously Variable Automatic
    • FWD
    • 29 mpg city / 39 mpg highway

There are plenty of similarities in the Jetta vs. Sentra engine comparison. The biggest differences are the smaller engine and fun to drive standard manual transmission on the Jetta, which leads to a slightly better fuel economy. However, the Jetta offers a considerably higher amount of torque, making it overall a far more powerful engine for Millville drivers.

Nissan Sentra vs. Volkswagen Jetta — Interior Technology

The base Volkswagen Jetta offers several interior features that the Nissan lacks: an available blind spot monitoring system, available remote start, and much more. Other VW Jetta tech features you can opt for include:

  • VW Digital Cockpit — With a 10” digital touchscreen that you customize to display your Jetta’s vitals, driving conditions, navigation, apps, and more.
  • Available BeatsAudioTM
  • VW Car-Net® — Keeps you updated via smartphone on your car’s location, if you remembered to lock your doors, and call for help if you need it 
  • Wi-Fi capability
