I lived in Elgin. It is a good hours drive from Chicago with some traffic. It has never been considered a suburb of Chicago. It way too far away.
It is considered a city. The 8th largest city in IL.

100 years ago, it was a small town on the Fox River, completely unrelated to Chicago. With the growth of population and urban sprawl, it is sometimes called a suburb. Take your pick.
