GLI - Best Jetta Ever
By jpcarvajal on


2014 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


I've been a proud owner of almost all VW lineup. While the best engine from VW is the Diesel with the 6 speed manual, the rest of the Jettas are a complete downgrade from previous generations. The good news folks is that VW created the GLI and this car has all the technical specs from the GTI. Suspension, performance, brakes, tires, wheels, interior design, etc. The car drives like a German car. All other Jettas are boring daily commuters. Go test drive one, you won't find a similar performance on any other sedan, unless you have $35K. Keep in mind that the base GLI is selling for $26K. I got mine for $24K. Sadly, the review from Edmunds is disappointing. These guys love Japanese cars.

Best Features

Handling Suspension Steering wheel Braking with 17" alloy wheels and summer tires German feeling Solid build Amazing sound from the engine and exhaust Perfect sporty smooth drive with the 17" alloy wheels

Worst Features

Rough ride with the 18" alloy wheels Expensive with the Autobahn Package Interior door panels are still made of hard plastic No rear vent Only 6 speakers with the base model
