2019 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA GLI DEBUTS WITH GTI PERFORMANCE REVIEW, SPECS, & RELEASE DATE RUMOURS – The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI debuted at the 2019 Chicago auto show, rounding out the German automaker’s compact sedan family. Like its predecessor, the 2019 Jetta GLI is the performance variant of the Jetta family, but it used to play second mess to the iconic Golf GTI, missing out on out on key features like a limited-slide differential and much more power. For the sixth-generation GLI, that’s no longer the case; the 2019 Jetta GLI gets all the go-fast items from its hatch sibling. In inclusion to two trims, Volkswagen will release a 35th Anniversary special edition model with black side vanity mirror covers, a black spoiler, black roof, black alloy wheels with a red stripe, and 35th Anniversary badges.
2019 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA GLI DEBUTS WITH GTI PERFORMANCE REVIEW
Power arises from the very same 2.0-liter turbo I-4 with 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, and this engine can be paired to a standard six-speed manual or even an optionally available seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A completely independent rear suspension replaces the torsion beam seen on the standard car and features a sportier calibration. The GLI is situated .6 inch less than the regular Jetta. Large 13.4-inch brake padding distributed to the Golf GTI and Golf R are available standard together with Volkswagen’s VAQ limited-slip differential. Some key design cues that differentiate the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI from its reduced kin include rounded dual exhaust ideas, 18-inch wheels, red brake calipers, a honeycomb grille, and red accent lines on the front fascia. Four drive methods will be available-Regular, Sport, Eco, and Custom-the second option of which allows the driver to tailor steering, engine sound, the limited-slide differential, and throttle reaction to their preferences. The 35th Anniversary Edition model is going to be the only one with a fifth drive mode referred to as Comfort.
Base level 2019 Jetta GLIs should come standard with fabric sports seats, LED headlights, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, interior background lighting, keyless entry and start, and dual-zone climate control. The range-topping Autobahn trim will offer much more features including Volkswagen’s Digital Cockpit system, a panoramic sunroof, adaptive dampers, heated up and ventilated front seats, leather covers, and a 400-watt Is better than the audio system. Forward collision warning, automatic unexpected emergency braking, sightless area checking, and rear cross-traffic alert will come standard on the 2019 Jetta GLI.
The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI will hit sellers this spring. It includes Volkswagen’s People First Guarantee, which includes six years or 72,000 miles and is transferable from the present proprietor to the next one.
