The Volkswagen Jetta has been one of the most impressive small cars on the market for a long time and the GLI models of this car are the sporty and fun versions to give you the power and drive you want. A new GLI was recently revealed at the Chicago Auto Show to give us a look at what this vehicle will be for us to admire and enjoy. In addition to the new GLI, there’s also a new 35thAnniversary edition of the car that should be quicker than the standard GLI to give us even more of what we want.
Get the New GLI Right Away
The new Volkswagen Jetta GLI comes with new looks, a new limited slip differential, the GTI engine, and the brakes form the Golf R. The new Jetta arrived last year to give us more space and new high-tech features that we want to experience during a drive. This new sporty version of the car gives us the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with the power you want at 228 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s more than the previous GLI to give us the power we’re looking for.
More than Just an Engine for the Ride
The power of the GLI is being sent to the front wheels using a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission that has a stop/start feature to save fuel. You can also choose a six-speed manual transmission that can be the right way for you to have the drive you want. This transmission doesn’t allow you to have the benefits of start/stop, but if you want to row your own gears it’s what you want to choose. This powertrain also offers you the limited-slip front differential that will make a difference when you take a drive.
Ride the Way You Want in the GLI
The standard Jetta uses a torsion beam rear suspension, but the GLI gives you a multi-link independent layout that allows the car to be lower and have more performance. There are big brakes form the Golf R that will make it easier for you to control the drive and you have the benefits of impressive 18-inch alloy wheels with the GLI. Choose the right one of the four driving modes for your driving experience and let the sportiness of the GLI be the right way for you to enjoy the ride.
Upgrades in the Cabin of the GLI
Of course, you can’t just have upgrades offered for the driving parts of the car, you need to enjoy improvements in the cabin as well. There’s a lot of red trim, a black interior, and the comfort you want. You’ll enjoy heated seats, keyless entry, and push-button starting to name just a few of the items you want in this car. The new GLI will be arriving at dealerships soon to give you the choice you want when you’re looking for a small car with the sporty personality that you desire.
