Volkswagen made a lot of people here in Encinitas and all along the California Coast very happy during the 2019 model year when they reintroduced the world to the new Volkswagen Jetta GLI. That’s because the VW Jetta GLI takes everything you know and love about the Jetta and adds a powerful and dynamic powertrain to make it the most fun to drive Jetta ever engineered.
And now it’s back for this model year in the form of the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI. And not only is it back, it’s better than ever thanks to a newly standard Car-Net® telematics system and newly standard in-car Wi-Fi capabilities across the entire 2020 VW Jetta GLI lineup. But that’s not all that’s now standard, as the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Autobahn also now features newly standard wireless charging capabilities and a newly standard DCC® adaptive damping system. The 2020 VW Jetta GLI Autobahn also boasts an available Black Package complete with black 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a black spoiler, black mirror caps, and a black roof.
Just like we alluded to in our introduction, the 2020 VW Jetta GLI combines all of the safety, technology, comfort, and convenience features of a 2020 Jetta with a powertrain you’d expect to find under the hood of a new Volkswagen model with GTI in its name.
More specifically, the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI lineup is powered by a turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-liter I-4 TSI engine capable of pumping out some truly impressive power ratings. In fact, this engine provides you with 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The powertrain of the 2020 Jetta GLI is rounded out by a dynamic front-wheel drive system and either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed DSG® dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The 2020 Jetta GLI lineup is also spacious enough so you can bring all of your friends – and all of their stuff – along with you to enjoy the ride. That’s because the 2020 VW Jetta GLI lineup provides you with 94.7 cubic-feet of total passenger room and 14.1 cubic-feet of room in the trunk.
