When it comes to being fuel efficient, the 2020 Nissan Sentra and Volkswagen Jetta are just about equals. Even with power, there isn’t much difference. The Sentra comes in with slightly more power at 149 horsepower over 147 for the Jetta. The two models are front-wheel drive, which gives you more stability and agility on the road. Both models feature one engine across the trims. For the Sentra, it is a 2.0L engine while the Jetta brings in the 1.8L engine. The Sentra comes in with an independent rear suspension while the Jetta offers a semi-independent torsion beam. Feel more secure with the locking limited slip differential of the Nissan.
The manufacturers are keeping up with customer demands when it comes to technology. However, the 2020 Nissan Sentra might be just a little ahead in this area with USB ports as standard while they aren’t available in the Jetta on the lower trims. Proximity key is also standard with the Nissan but not available for the Volkswagen. Both models are Bluetooth capable, but only the Sentra provides voice recognition across all trims. You will find a touchscreen across the trims of both sedans for convenience when you want to adjust settings.
Enjoy ample space in the two sedans with almost identical interior volume. However, the 2020 Nissan Sentra comes in with almost three extra inches of front legroom. This model also has slightly more cargo space, which allows you to add a few more items to your traveling. Thanks to the split bench seat in the two sedans, you can customize your space to carry more passengers or cargo. With upper trim levels, both the Nissan and Volkswagen include heated mirrors and a sunroof. While the two sedans are comparable in price on the base trims, the Sentra comes in significantly lower for the highest trim compared to the Jetta.
Feel safe in either sedan, which comes with an outstanding warranty. However, the 2020 Nissan Sentra takes it a little further with a powertrain warranty for five years or 60,000 miles over the 4 years and 50,000 miles of the Jetta. While both sedans provide airbags for safety, only Nissan included knee protection airbags for the driver and front passenger. The Sentra also comes standard with more safety systems, such as parking assist and lane departure warning. Remote keyless entry is standard on both models for quick access
