Volkswagen Jetta vs Nissan Sentra

So, you’re looking for a smaller, more affordable sedan, but you don’t want to sacrifice any of the important amenities or performance specs. You might think your options are going to be limited; but, luckily, that’s not true.

Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Newport Beach drivers still have plenty of vehicles to choose from. But which can offer you the most robust package?

In this comparison, the Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore Irvine team is going to examine two of the most well-known small sedans: the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs. Nissan Sentra.

Fun & Exciting Entertainment Technology

Each of these stylish sedans includes a dashboard-mounted touchscreen display that drivers can use to choose their favorite songs, artists, or stations from the road. The VW Jetta includes a 6.5-inch screen while the Sentra features a standard 5-inch display.

Both vehicles offer Bluetooth® technology for hands-free phone calls and audio streaming, USB and auxiliary inputs for portable devices, and respective AM/FM radios. The VW Jetta includes the Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect, which is a system that integrates the paired smartphone into the vehicle’s touchscreen, making it easier for the driver to access some of their phone’s apps, features, and even contacts.

Volkswagen Jetta vs Nissan Sentra: Performance Specs

When most people think of a smaller sedan, they’re thinking of less power, too. However, the Volkswagen Jetta packs a noticeable punch.

Thanks to the turbocharging and intercooling the 1.4L inline 4-cylinder engine has received, the VW Jetta can generate 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the Nissan Sentra 4-cylinder falls short, producing only 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque, showing that the VW Jetta offers more output with its turbocharged engine.

Volkswagen Jetta vs Nissan Sentra: Interior Comforts

In terms of interior space and styling, the Volkswagen Jetta and Nissan Sentra do have a few similarities. Both these vehicles contain comfortable 6-way adjustable driver’s seats with cloth seating, which allow for drivers to adjust to their perfect comfort.

The cabins of these respective sedans offer more than 90 cubic feet of space for the five passengers they’re each equipped to carry. Both these vehicles offer similar room for their passengers. However, when you look toward the rear you’ll notice a bit of a difference. The VW Jetta offers more headroom for its rear passengers with 37.2 inches while the Nissan Sentra only offers 36.7 inches to its rear passengers.
