The 2018 Toyota Camry and 2018 Volkswagen Jetta’s six trims are two admirable sedans with plenty to offer. A few key factors can help you choose between them, such as safety features. For instance, the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta comes with:

  • An automatic post-collision braking system, which helps slow the vehicle after a collision to reduce the risk of additional collisions
  • A tire-pressure monitoring system, which alerts drivers when their tires’ air pressure is running low
  • Seven stability-enhancing systems, including Electronic Brake-Pressure Distribution and Electronic Stability Control, to help prevent collisions before they occur

When combined with an Intelligent Crash Response System, the new Volkswagen Jetta earned five out of five stars from the NHTSA. The 2018 Toyota Camry comes with features such as lane departure warning and a pre-collision system to mitigate potential collisions, but lacks the post-collision braking system found on the Volkswagen Jetta.

Looking inside, both the Toyota Camry and Volkswagen Jetta provide a host of comfort and technology features. Both take advantage of modern technology by incorporating push-button start, allowing drivers to start their vehicles without ever having to take out their keys. However, the Volkswagen Jetta interior comes with a rearview camera, as well as several optional features not found in the Toyota Camry:

  • Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect, which allows drivers to access smartphone apps from their dashboard
  • Discover Navigation that gives drivers peace-of-mind by providing easy-to-follow directions
  • An 8-speaker Fender Premium Sound System for music lovers

However, the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta features the classic aerodynamic Volkswagen design, which now incorporates halogen headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights, improving safety and style.
