2017 Volkswagen Jetta vs. 2017 Toyota Camry

The current version of the Volkswagen Jetta available in the Garnet VW showroom is designed with a straightforward philosophy. Buyers choosing the popular VW sedan will be getting one of the industry's most spacious, most efficient and most well-equipped midsize sedans. Comparing the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta vs. 2017 Toyota Camry is one of the toughest challenges the VW sedan can face. However, Garnet Volkswagen is more than ready to show how much the new Jetta has caught up with the Camry. In fact, there are more than a few places where the 2017 Jetta has surpassed the Toyota sedan.

Entry-level trims of the 2017 VW Jetta and 2017 Toyota Camry have very similar lists of standard equipment. This makes features like air conditioning, power accessories and cruise control universal between the two sedans. Connectivity is a very important feature in today's sedan class. The Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect system is far more advanced than anything offered by the 2017 Camry. Owners of the 2017 Jetta will be able to pair their Apple and Android devices to the vehicle's touchscreen and will be able to open, close or otherwise manipulate most, if not all, of the most popular applications.

Performance of the 2017 Jetta

Customers shopping through the 2017 VW Jetta inventory at Garnet Volkswagen will have a trio of power plants to examine. All three engines use turbocharging technology to get as much performance as possible out of the automaker's small and efficient engines. This is where Toyota advocates will say that the Camry's engines (a 2.5-L, four-cylinder and 3.5-L, V-6) make more horsepower than what can be found with the Jetta. While this is true, it's a moot point. 

By using turbochargers on its motors, the 2017 Jetta can make more torque; which is better for acceleration as well as fuel-economy. Owners of the 2017 Jetta will see greater returns in fuel-efficiency for each of its engines than what the 2017 Camry can record.
