Which sedan is better: Sentra or Jetta?

When comparing the base prices, you may notice that there isn’t much difference in the price. The $500 is still enough difference to sway some, but at higher trim levels the price gap grows. In fact, the top Sentra SR trim is over $6,000 less than the top Jetta SEL Premium XSE trim.

The Sentra comes standard with a 2-speed CVT or continuously variable transmission. This transmission option promises the smoothest ride as it gradually changes its effective gear ratios as you accelerate, switching ratios rapidly only when the situation calls for it. The Jetta gives you a manual transmission standard, which nearly no one wants anymore, and a traditional automatic option.

On the inside, the Sentra will feel more spacious too with nearly 3 additional inches of front legroom. The Sentra also offers more front headroom and front shoulder room. In the back, the Sentra provides more hip room and shoulder room. In addition, the Sentra has more cargo room in the trunk by a nice margin. Whether you are running to the store for groceries or even helping someone move the Sentra will be ideal.
