2017 Hyundai Elantra

The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta provides the Chicagoland area with enthusiastic performance and a surprising amount of technology for its affordable price. Other compact cars like the 2017 Hyundai Elantra can’t beat the value of the Volkswagen Jetta, and we think you’ll see why once you compare the two below. Read on to find out more, then visit us near La Grange to take a new Volkswagen Jetta on the road today!


You can pick between three engines to power the new Volkswagen Jetta. The standard engine is a turbocharged 1.4L 4-cylinder engine that develops 150 hp while giving you up to an EPA-estimated 40 mpg/highway and 28 mpg/city as you travel through Downers Grove. This beats the standard engine of the Hyundai Elantra which only gives you 147 hp.

The Volkswagen Jetta also offers a turbocharged 1.8L 4-cylinder engine with 170 hp and a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that gives you up to 210 hp. The Hyundai Elantra offers a less powerful 1.4L 4-cylinder engine with 128 hp, and at the top of the lineup, its 1.6L 4-cylinder engine will only give you 201 hp.

Inside of the Volkswagen Jetta base trim, you’ll enjoy a standard touchscreen display with a rearview camera. Bluetooth technology is also standard with steering wheel-mounted controls to keep you connected to loved ones easily. You’ll also have two-tone cloth seats as well as the ability to upgrade to V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces in higher trims. The Hyundai Elantra does not come standard with a touchscreen display or Bluetooth technology, and standard cloth seating does not offer a stylish edge.
