In 1984, Volkswagen launched a formula that was sure to be a success. The automaker matched a four-door, affordable sedan with the prowess of an unmistakable hatchback. Today, VW still uses that formula, and the 2019 VW Jetta GLI is the result.

For 35 years, the Volkswagen Jetta GLI has been capturing the hearts of drivers throughout the United States and around the world. With more power, technology, and responsiveness than its worthy predecessors, the 2019 VW Jetta GLI is set to continue the car’s long-standing tradition of wowing motorists.

“[The] Volkswagen [brand] has long been synonymous with small, sporty cars,” said Scott Keogh, CEO, Volkswagen Group of America. “The 2019 [VW Jetta] GLI takes the redesigned [Volkswagen] Jetta foundation and adds performance features from the [2019 VW] Golf GTI to give buyers a true sport sedan that’s the best blend of European and American flavors.”

Scheduled to arrive at our Volkswagen dealership near Fresno, CA this spring, the new Volkswagen Jetta GLI is understandably based on the 2019 VW Jetta. The VW Jetta GLI is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that produces 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The sedan’s engine can be paired with a six-speed manual transmission or an advanced seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

When it arrives at our location, you’ll quickly see that the VW Jetta GLI is a well-equipped automobile. A blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking system are standard equipment. App-Connect™ smartphone connectivity, multi-color ambient lighting, heated front seats, and keyless entry come standard across the sedan’s lineup as well.
