The compact to midsize market is one that is regularly dominated by manufacturers like Hyundai, Toyota and Honda. Volkswagen in El Paso has become one of the newest and best players in this market however with their 2019 Jetta. The latest edition of the Jetta can compete with almost any of these competitors and at a price point that is nearly identical. The 2019 Jetta has been completely improved and redefined for this year. It offers a vast array of value for its customers and it can be a very comfortable driving experience.
Learning what you can get of the 2019 Jetta versus competitors like the 2018 Hyundai Elantra can be a great idea if you are looking for a new midsize to compact car. Most of the cars in their base model in this market are available for under $20,000 and finding a car that can deliver some extra features will really help you get more value for your money. Here is a direct comparison between the 2018 Hyundai Elantra as well as the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta:
The 2019 Jetta:
The 2019 edition of the Volkswagen Jetta is something that's completely redesigned for this year. We are excited to show off this vehicle as the styling has been changed to suit almost any style of driver. For under $20,000 you get access to a compact sedan with a manual gearbox in six speed or the chance to try out the newest eight speed automatic gearbox with the 2019 VW Jetta. The vehicle itself has completely changed in the way that it rides and handles.
Refined & Economical
Everything feels very tight and refined and the vehicle is really designed to cruise along the roads especially on the highway. This is a vehicle that has been upgraded with improved trunk space, interior cabin space and new technology that you might find on a vehicle like a German luxury car such as Audi. The upgraded and premium packages also feature new leather and an 8 inch infotainment system that can really improve the comfort of this vehicle.
The safety and fuel consumption have also been a massive point of improvement with this vehicle. It now gets 34 miles per gallon combined and the newest safety features have upgraded this vehicle to a five-star rating.
The 2018 Hyundai Elantra
The 2018 Hyundai Elantra is one of the cheapest cars of the base model in its market. This vehicle which is made in Korea is available at a price point that's around two grand less than its next top competitor. As an extremely versatile vehicle that's also available in a hatchback mode, the Hyundai offers one of the most affordable ways to get into the compact and midsize market.
Quiet & Comfortable
This vehicle is definitely known for its fairly smart and sporty exterior style. The hatchback version also has fairly competitive storage for this market. The ride inside the new Elantra is also quite quiet and comfortable. It doesn't tend to have the same interior impact as many cars in the market and Hyundai does have a tendency to scale back on some of the interior materials that they use. The fuel consumption is decent for the market but the acceleration in this vehicle is definitely scaled back with its overall lack of torque compared to the Volkswagen engine.
Comparing the two:
Ultimately, these are some very different cars. The Hyundai does present some excellent value in the market as well as some improved cargo space. The cheaper materials on the interior and the less bold nature of the styling may not work for some people however.
