At Kempthorn WW near Canton, we are proud to offer you insight into our inventory of fuel-efficient vehicles. Shop here for our selection of our favorite fuel efficient models: Jetta, Passat, Tiguan and Taos. Or see more below to learn how each vehicle performs and how it compares to the competition.

2021 VW Jetta

When it comes to making every mile count, the 2021 VW Jetta does it in spades. With a combined fuel efficiency of 33 miles per gallon according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it is on par with each of its competitors, including the Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sentra, and the Honda Civic Four-door.

Where the Jetta leaps ahead of its competitors is in range. While the competitors average a little over 420 miles of range, the VW Jetta has nearly 440 miles of range. The increased range makes any trip through Northeast Ohio a quiet endeavor.

2021 VW Passat

For delivering a comfortable experience with a plethora of features, the 2021 VW Passat does just that at an affordable price. Compared with the popular Toyota Camry and the new Kia K5, the Passat boasts better fuel efficiency and range. Drivers will get better gas mileage from the Nissan Altima, but many of our shoppers have preferred the interior features and comfortable interior of the Passat. 

While the Passat is billed as a mid-sized sedan, the spaciousness will keep you from considering a more costly and less-fuel efficient large sedan.  As a further perk, the VW Passat can tow up to up to 1,000 pounds.

2021 VW Tiguan

When it comes to versatile practicality, the 2021 VW Tiguan offers a dynamic experience with sleek looks. With two or three rows of seating available, the Tiguan is a great size for a family SUV and won't break the bank at the pump. 

As a competitor for the GMC Acadia, Kia Sorento and Ford Explorer, it boasts a great EPA Fuel Economy, especially with highway driving.

As a subcompact SUV, the 2022 VW Taos carries a refined aesthetic and spacious interior. As one of the newest additions to the VW lineup, it holds its own against the competition in fuel economy, out performing some of the most beloved SUVs in the segment.
