Here, we compare the 2022 Volkswagen Jetta with the 2022 Hyundai Elantra.

The 2022 Volkswagen Jetta perfectly pairs power and efficiency

The 2022 Jetta is powered by the new and improved four-cylinder 1.5L turbocharged engine that outputs an impressive 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

The Elantra uses a four-cylinder 2.0 L unit as a base engine. It is paired with a less sporty Continuously Variable Transmission. Even if it delivers similar fuel consumption ratings, the Jetta is much more efficient with more horsepower and torque.

Need more performance? The 2022 Jetta GLI moves up to a turbocharged 2.0-liter which delivers a whopping 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The GLI lets you choose between a standard six-speed manual transmission if you like more interaction, or a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The Elantra also has an N Line an N models. The first one is equipped with a 1.6L turbocharged engine that produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque.
