In terms of performance, the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta offers impressive mechanics along with notable efficiency. Putting you in charge of your power preference, Volkswagen gives you the choice of 3 turbo engines (1.4L, 1.8L, 2.0L). 4-corner independent suspension helps you stay in control of the road, while the available DSG performance transmission offers smooth acceleration and incredibly fast gear change. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra also offers 3 engines choices, however only the Eco and Sport trims are turbocharged.

When it comes to driver-assist safety features, the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta leaves no stone left unturned. With Blind Spot Monitor, Park Pilot, Rear Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Front Assist with a Forward Collision Warning system, you can always feel confident that Volkswagen has your back, sides, and front. Hyundai has a comparable safety suite available as well, which offers Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Smart Cruise Control, and Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist. One notable difference between the two is the lack of parking assistance in the Elantra. With the new Jetta's Park Pilot, you can fit into even the smallest spot thanks to sensors that give off visual and audible signals when you get too close to other vehicles.
