For 2016 the redesigned Jetta GLI has a bold new look. It’s highlighted by an aggressive front fascia with a honeycomb grille and foglights. The new rear bumper design features a diffuser and dual chrome exhaust tips. The signature red line trim continues from the grille to the interior. Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED taillights, keyless access with push-button start, Climatronic dual-zone climate control, sunroof, six-way power driver’s seat, rearview camera, Fender premium audio system, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, color trip computer, heated seats and auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Under the hood is the same engine that beats in the heart of the Golf GTI. The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder makes 210 hp, but there’s no compromise to practicality with 33 mpg highway fuel efficiency. The sport-tuned suspension is engineered for the autobahn with independent front MacPherson struts, rear fully independent four-link suspension and stabilizer bars. You’ll enjoy the sharper handling wherever the road takes you.
The Jetta GLI’s touchscreen sound system has a 6.33-inch color display and USB port, ready to link up to VW Car-Net App-Connect for access to your music, maps, messaging and more. It puts your smartphone features at the command of your fingertips or voice while driving. Meanwhile, new driver assistance features are working behind the scenes to give you a more confident drive. Park distance control and automatic post-collision braking system are standard. Also available is blind spot monitor with rear traffic alert. These features have made the new 2016 Jetta an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick+.
