2017 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0T GLI 2.0T GLI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

The Jetta GLI is a fairy sporty sedan. It's not the most economical of the Jetta trim levels, but offers great acceleration, braking, and handling. The interior is nice with a good infotainment system, parking assistance and blind spot monitoring. I haven't had the car long enough to comment on reliability.

Review

This car is hungry; truly in an almost uncivilized way...to be driven. The 210 hp TSI engine growls like it just wants more road to chew. The cornering is effortless and quick and the DSG gearing leaves cars in the rear view mirror at an alarming rate.
The SE package is the only trim offering this year but valued well with every 2016 SEL amenity sans some front lighting features.
Nod to Fender and VW for and even more remarkable sounding stereo then my previous 2012 Fender system.
Two wishes: tighter steering although there is much to be said for the nimble nature of the current set-up. Also, versus my 2012 Jetta TDI, I have lost around 29 lb-ft torque. Enter the GLI horse power, enter my grin and the clamouring for the lost torque is a long distant memory (sort of like the car that could have been behind me just a second ago).
Bottom line: Pick a nice day and go for a test drive...be prepared for the "giddy up" and to enjoy yourself.
