It is comparison time again. We have the wonderful Jetta from Volkswagen and its opponent, the Nissan Sentra against one another to find out which one comes out on top. We are going to list all the details of both models so you can get an idea of which model will be best for you.

Both models have 5-passenger seating and an Inline-4 engine but in that aspect, the Volkswagen Jetta is able to output more torque at 184lb-ft while the Sentra comes in at 177lb-ft at its highest not to mention that the Volkswagen also beats out the Sentra in horsepower with having 147horsepower and the Sentra has only 125horsepower, plus the Jetta has a better fuel economy at 30city/40highway while the Sentra reaches 25city/31/highway.
