Coming this spring is the feistiest version of the all-new Jetta; the small, sporty GLI. Marking its 6th generation, the 2019 GLI swaps the Jetta’s 1.4-liter engine for the GTI’s 2.0-liter turbo, producing 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque – increasing its power over the previous generation. And yes – a 6-speed manual is still available while a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic is optional. Its brakes are shared with VW’s other performance cars as is the limited slip differential that helps to improve traction and further performance by reducing understeer. A fully independent, lowered sport suspension is made even more sophisticated on the special 35th Anniversary model by adding an adaptive damping system which includes a Comfort setting to the 4 standard drive modes: Normal, Sport, Eco and Custom.
