If you’re more of the compact sedan persuasion, two models in particular – the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta and 2019 Nissan Sentra – are by far some of your best options. Each of them is among the most fuel-efficient models in the business, but there’s more lying inside than what meets the eye.

It should be obvious at this point that the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta blows the 2019 Sentra out of the water in basically every regard. Not only is it more powerful and able to achieve greater fuel economy, but with two full-color, capacitive touchscreen interfaces inside, 10-color ambient lighting, and a BeatsAudio™ premium sound system (none of which are present on the 2019 Sentra), the Jetta definitely has a firm hold on your comfort, connectivity, and serenity during the drive. Add this to a wide range of driver assistance and safety features, and the 2019 Jetta is set to continue its model line’s run of NHTSA 5 Star overall ratings, dating back to 2014 – that's something that the Sentra family simply can’t claim.
