Everyone enjoys a car that lets them cruise around for a long period of time before having to stop at a gas station. Nowadays, various body types continue to improve upon their fuel economy, with sedans usually having the most fuel-efficient powertrains.

Both the VW Jetta and Chevy Cruze do an excellent job of conserving fuel when you’re riding along the highway or navigating though the streets downtown. The Cruze is powered by a 1.4L turbo 4-cylinder engine that helps the car get EPA-estimated 28 city/38 highway MPG.

In the VW Jetta, there’s also a 1.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The Volkswagen Jetta will give you an even better fuel economy, though, with an EPA-estimated 30 city/40 highway MPG.*

Comparing Safety Features of the VW Jetta vs Chevy Cruze

2019 Volkswagen Jetta

With either sedan, you can gain available technologies that are designed to assist you while driving, to help you safely reach your destination. Part of these systems that are available in both cars includes a feature that can alert you when there’s a vehicle in your blind spot. This is helpful when you need to change lanes on the highway.

The Volkswagen Jetta also has the available Adaptive Cruise Control. This will let the vehicle maintain your preset speed while also keeping a safe distance from the car in front of you. When you start to get too close to the vehicle in front, it will automatically slow down your VW Jetta. Then when it senses it’s safe to do so, it’ll accelerate the car back up to your desired speed. The Cruze doesn’t have a feature available that can do this.

Premium Exterior Features that Come Standard
