2016 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Glendale CA
Everyone has heard of the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI, and probably drooled over one or two, but the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta GLI in Glendale CA doesn’t get nearly enough press. This is a shame, as it’s similar to the hatchback in many ways, offering a stylish sedan design for those who aren’t fond of the bulkier look the GTI offers. The one downside of the Jetta GLI is the fact that it comes in just two trims, which means those interested will just have to settle for driving a feature-packed version of the sporty car.
Though we know the performance specs are what really draw the eye to the 2016 VW Jetta GLI versus the standard 1.4T counterpart, there are also a variety of styling details that make it worth a look or five. The first thing to note is the GLI bumper design, which features a honeycomb pattern offset by halogen reflector lens foglights. A red accent runs through the grille, which has darker shutters to highlight the chrome VW logo. These are just some of the elements that enhance an already attractive model.
Just like the GTI, the Jetta GLI has the 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which delivers 210 horsepower and 207 pound feet of torque. For those who like to feel in complete control, it comes paired with a six-speed manual transmission, but the dual-clutch DSG automatic is available.
Style enhancements over the standard Jetta include a standard sunroof, LED taillights and license plate lighting, and 18-inch Mallory alloy wheels for the exterior, and V-Tex leatherette upholstery with red accent stitching, brushed aluminum-appearance pedal covers and Carbonoptik trim in the interior.
The Jetta GLI starts off at the SE trim, which is the mid-level for most vehicles within the VW lineup. As a result, it has some impressive standard features that include Park Distance Control, a rearview camera, the 6.33-inch touchscreen system with App-Connect, Fender audio and dual-zone climate control.
