Volkswagen’s Sixth-Generation GLI Gets GTI Performance Features

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI made its debut at the recent Chicago Auto Show. The performance-oriented four-door compact sport sedan has moved to the brand’s MQB platform, which means it shares its underpinnings with the Volkswagen Golf GTI. In other words, the GLI becomes a true sedan variant of VW’s hot hatch.

The GLI gets an all-new set of standard and available performance features shared with the Golf R and GTI. According to Volkswagen, its design marks the most aggressive GLI to date. Moreover, it boasts more power and improved handling prowess.

Volkswagen of America CEO Scott Keogh explains, “Volkswagen has long been synonymous with small, sporty cars. The redesigned 2019 Jetta proved once more that its combination of design, technology and value continues to resonate with buyers. The 2019 GLI takes the Jetta foundation and adds performance features from the Golf GTI to give buyers a true sport sedan.”
