Enjoy the High-Performance Jetta Sedan

The 2022 Jetta GLI received a subtle makeover with front and rear updates with its signature red line accents. On the backside, the GLI has a honeycomb bumper with large dual exhaust pipes that create a robust sound. The front end also features a honeycomb design to hide new sensors and cameras. The interior includes an updated leather-wrapped steering wheel and new tech and driver-assistive features.

Volkswagen Jetta GLI Technology Features

The Jetta GLI comes standard with Digital Cockpit Pro and an 8.0-inch touchscreen. The infotainment features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Navigation, SiriusXM with 360L, and App Connect services like a Wi-Fi hotspot. The 400-watt, eight-speaker BeatsAudio sound system creates exceptional sound. All Jetta GLI models have wireless device charging, automatic high beams, remote start, and a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster.

Powertrain and Safety Technology

What makes the Jetta GLI fun to drive is the standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Drivers get a six-speed manual transmission, but they can opt for a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The EPA-estimated fuel economy on the Jetta GLI is 26/37 MPG. Volkswagen outfits the front-wheel-drive GLI with a limited-slip differential, adaptive damping suspension, variable-ratio steering, a drive mode selector, and performance front brakes.

Several standard driver-assistive features enhance the Jetta GLI performance. All Jetta trim levels have a Rearview Camera, Forward Collision Warning, Forward Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The Jetta GLI has IQ.Drive technology that includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Travel Assist, Emergency Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Automatic High-Beam Headlights, and Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers.

Check Out the Black Package

Drivers who want to step up their GLI styling features can choose the optional Black Package. This extra package includes 18-inch twin-spoke black alloy wheels, black painted side mirrors, and a sporty black rear spoiler. The dark accents are highlighted with red stripes, painted calipers, and red accents on the front bumper.

On the inside, the Jetta GLI has Titan Black leather seating with red accents. The interior features heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, a panoramic sunroof, and interior ambient lighting.
