2019 Volkswagen Scraps Jetta GLI Manual Box Release Date, Price, & Spy Shots – The number of cars available with manual transmissions proceeds to drop with Volkswagen stating that the 2019 Jetta GLI will not be provided with a put-move.
From the time the Jetta GLI landed on U.S. dirt, a manual transmission is available along with a six-speed dual-clutch. However, for 2019, the German automaker has made the decision to make the dual-clutch the only choice because of the bad consider price for the manual.
Whilst speaking to CarsDirect, Volkswagen spokesperson Mark Gillies mentioned about 30 percent of Jetta GLI’s sold have the manual, nicely under the 50 percent get the price in the Golf GTI.
Over and above the removing of one gearbox solution, the Jetta GLI continues to be mostly unaffected for the 2018 model year. As an outcome, it carries on to use a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 210 hp and 207 lb-ft (280 Nm) of torque. Prices start at $30,395, a $1,680 premium over the 2019 model.
