The 2015 versions of the Volkswagen Jetta and the Hyundai Elantra are now available, and many people from Newport Beach, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Mission Viejo have already driven home in them.

Each vehicle comes complete with a long list of features and a driving experience that’s enjoyable and powerful. So if you want to join those who have already driven home in the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta or the Hyundai Elantra, read on for a detailed guide about these two cars.

Driving Experience

You’ll get an exhilarating yet practical driving experience with the Volkswagen Jetta. When you decide you want to take home this model, you’ll have to choose between two engines: the 1.8-liter Turbocharged Stratified Injection engine and the 2.0-liter Turbocharged Direct Injection engine. Regardless of which engine you choose, you’ll get a wonderfully powerful, efficient driving experience.

When you take to the streets in the Hyundai Elantra, you can feel great power with either one of the vehicle’s engine options. Unfortunately, you may not get to experience impressive efficiency.


Inside the Volkswagen Jetta, you’ll be able to use a variety of innovative technologies so you’re entertained while driving. One feature you can use is the iPod/iPhone integration to play your personal music playlists and songs.

There’s also the Volkswagen Car-Net system. Once activated, you’ll be able to stay in control of your vehicle even when you’re away from it. You can set speed limits and driving boundaries if someone else is behind the wheel. You get an email or text message if the other driver goes beyond these boundaries.  

The Hyundai Elantra also has innovative interior technologies such as the audio system and integrated Bluetooth system. What the Elantra doesn’t have, however, is a system like the Volkswagen Car-Net to help you stay in control if someone else is driving your vehicle.

Safety Technology

­Your safety is a priority for Volkswagen, and that’s why this year’s Jetta has features dedicated to making sure you stay safe on the road. Some of these technologies include adaptive airbags, Forward Collision Warning, and a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert. Also included in the Jetta is the Intelligent Crash Response System that can automatically unlock the door, disable the fuel pump, and activate the hazard lights if you experience a collision that causes your airbags to deploy.

The Hyundai Elantra comes equipped with safety features such as Electronic Brake Force Distribution, a Traction Control System, and an anti-lock braking system. Unfortunately, the Elantra doesn’t include a feature such as the Intelligent Crash Response System to help you stay safe after a collision.
