A 2.0-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI® engine with 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque on tap sits beneath the hood of the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI. Paired to a standard 6-speed manual or the optional 7-speed DSG® automatic transmission, the Jetta GLI delivers an impressive EPA-estimated 25 city/32 highway/28 city mpg. Automatic transmission Jetta GLI models feature standard Start/Stop technology to help save fuel and improve efficiency. Equipped with Golf R front brakes with red-painted calipers, a multi-link rear suspension, VAQ limited-slip differential, and progressive variable-ration steering, the athletic feel of this Volkswagen is amplified even higher.

Unique Design in 2019 Jetta GLI

The Volkswagen Jetta GLI S and Autobahn feature unique GLI styling that includes aggressive-looking front and rear bumpers, side skirts, a black honeycomb grille, dual chrome exhaust, and a rear spoiler. The Jetta GLI S and Autobahn both sit on 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with a diamond-turned surface and feature “GLI” rear badging.

The 35th Anniversary Edition Jetta GLI sets itself apart from the rest of the lineup with a black tail spoiler, black mirror caps, a black roof, “GLI 35” badging, and dark grey 18-inch wheels. The Jetta GLI 35th Anniversary Edition wheels feature an additional track-ready touch to make them look even more athletic – a red stripe around the outer rim.

Red stitching lines the floormats, shifter, armrest, steering wheel, and even the seats to add an athletic touch to the all-black interior. Jetta GLI S and 35th Anniversary Edition models feature cloth comfort sport seats while the Autobahn receives leather sport seating. Every Jetta GLI model feels track-ready with the leather-wrapped sport multifunction steering wheel, stainless steel pedal caps, and available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
