While small sedans like the 2018 Hyundai Elantra offer Arlington Heights car shoppers access to attractive styling, they can’t compete with the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta when it comes to efficiency and interior capacity, as our comparison clearly demonstrates.

Volkswagen Jetta MPG

When equipped with a 1.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the Jetta offers better fuel economy than the Elantra:

  • 2018 Volkswagen Jetta 
    • Transmission: Five-Speed Manual
    • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy (City): 28 mpg
    • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy (Highway): 40 mpg
  • 2018 Hyundai Elantra
    • Transmission: Six-Speed Manual
    • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy (City): 22 mpg
    • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy (Highway): 30 mpg

The Hyundai’s 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine can’t match the efficiency of the Jetta. If you’d like to save money on fuel costs in Des Plaines, the Jetta is the smarter choice.

Jetta Dimensions

The interior of the Jetta makes the drive into Chicago more relaxing thanks to upscale design and 38.1 inches of rear legroom–plenty of space to stretch out. The Elantra provides passengers with just 35.7 inches of rear legroom–a cramped place to spend the daily carpool.
