2019 VW Jetta GLI Debut In Detroit Release Date, Price, Spy Shots, & Redesign – Like the Volkswagen Golf GTI, but wish it possessed a trunk in place of a liftgate at the back? That’d be the Jetta GLI. And the most recent word has it that the new model will debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit arrive January.
At the launch of the new Jetta in South America, exactly where it is acknowledged as the Vento. “I quote that Vento GLI could possibly be offered in January, during the Detroit Show,” Pavone advised the Argentinian website. “The sports version was created specifically for the likes of the North American market,” and could have its very own exclusive five-spoke alloys and a black roof.
Much more to the point, the new Jetta GLI is expected to use its 2.0-liter turbo four straight from the Golf GTI, whereby it creates 220 horsepower (164 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. That’d take the very little sports sedan a lot more in line with the warm hatch, alternatively of trailing right behind it in power and performance as it has in the previous.
That’d put it in a better position to take on the wants of the Honda Civic Si, Hyundai Elantra Sport, and Subaru WRX in the market for compact performance sedans, and give VW a more compelling offering for those who like their performance in a three-box shape. And if the report proves precise, we could expect the new Jetta GLI’s debut in just a couple of months from now.
