2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2018 Hyundai Sonata

2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2018 Hyundai Sonata

We've previously talked about the new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta redesign in detail. However, our previous mentions and articles regarding the 2019 Jetta have been specifically fixated on it alone, rather than in its relation to other models. That's why, today, we're going to compare the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta to another compact sedan on the market to test how much Volkswagen's newest iteration of the Jetta has improved!

Seeing as the compact sedan is the standard of many car brands, that means there are many options for the new 2019 VW Jetta to compete against. Here at Garnet Volkswagen, we've previously compared the Jetta against the Ford Focus, the Honda Civic, and the Subaru Impreza among others. For a change, we've chosen Hyundai's comparable sedan, the Sonata. Therefore, our matchup today is the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vs the 2018 Hyundai Sonata!

You'd think, looking at the price, that the 2018 Hyundai Sonata would be a bigger and more powerful version of the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. However, that doesn't quite appear to be the case. Although the 2018 Sonata generates more horsepower, it produces lower amounts of torque. Additionally, the 2018 Hyundai Sonata has a much lower combined fuel economy than the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta despite being only minimally more powerful in terms of horsepower.
