New VW Jetta GLI to arrive with more powerful engine and independent rear suspension

Volkswagen is all set to commence sales of its 2019 Jetta at dealerships by the second quarter of 2018. Offering a bolder design, a roomier interior space and new technology, is out to prove itself more appealing than its predecessor. Nonetheless, there are customers who are already setting their eyes on the high performance of the sedan – the VW Jetta GLI.

The GLI version of the Jetta has been known to be performance-oriented, offering the sportiest drive and ride from the German carmaker’s sedan model. This is basically why some are patiently waiting for this version of the Jetta sedan. Apparently, the next iteration of the VW Jetta won’t disappoint, if people from Autoblog are to be believed.

According to Autoblog, citing a representative from VW, the new Jetta GLI won’t be equipped with the mill found inside the standard Jetta – a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine that delivers 147 hp (109 kW) of max output and 184 lb.-ft. (249 Nm) of peak torque.

2018 VW Jetta GLI is exclusively offered with 6-speed, dual-clutch automatic gearbox

Today, manual transmissions have become rare in mainstream cars and are more commonly found in performance cars within the $20,000 to $40,000 range. However, the selection of affordable, three-pedal performance has shrunk, and now Volkswagen announces that the next generation Jetta GLI would not have a manual gearbox as well.

We have got some news regarding the 2018 VW Jetta GLI, thanks to Volkswagen for revealing that it will be losing its manual gearbox. Having said that, it will now exclusively be offered with a six-speed, dual clutch automatic gearbox.

In their official statement, and in an interview with CarsDirect, Volkswagen spokesman Mark Gilles confirmed the earlier reports. But they also added that less than 30 percent of the Jetta GLI sales were of the manual version. Unlike the company’s GTI five-door hatch Golf variant, both manual and automatic transmissions were pretty much popular.

MOMO Edition VW Jetta GLI graces 2016 Chicago Auto Show

Volkswagen has brought the MOMO Edition Jetta GLI to the 2016 Chicago Auto Show following its debut last year at the SEMA Show. Built with the all-new Jetta GLI, the MOMO Edition is made with an OEM-Plus tuning with an Italian flair to appeal to sports-oriented customers. With its 19-inch MOMO aluminum-alloy wheels and the Volkswagen 210-hp, 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged and direct-injection EA888 four-cylinder engine, the Jetta GLI offer superior performance and style.

The GLJ 19"x8.5" MOMO Revenge wheels demonstrate the first "mesh" wheel design, filling the GLI fenders sharply. The split-10 spoke wheels come with concave centers and raised caps, perfectly fitting the 235/35 XR19 Pirelli P Zero tires. For precise cornering tune-in and better handling, the MOMO Edition has low-profile tire sidewalls and uses H&R suspension components.

These features include H&R Street Performance coilovers located at each corner as well as front and rear sway bars, which provide a tuned ride height for a bolder stance. Complementing the 210-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder Volkswagen engine is a Milltek Sport stainless steel cat-back exhaust that increases breathability and provides a distinctive, sporty sound.

2016 VW Jetta GLI MOMO Edition debuts at SEMA Show

The wait is finally over! Volkswagen has confirmed that it will introduce a MOMO Edition of the sports compact, the VW Jetta GLI 2.0T in 2016. Frequently referred to as OEM-plus, the new vehicle presents the same advantages as the turbocharged VW sedan but it’s clearly designed to be much sportier.

The VW Jetta GLI 2.0T boasts an Italian feel, bold 19” MOMO light alloy road wheels, a stylish MOMO steering wheel, and a vibrant red and yellow color interior. MOMO’s “mesh” design is making a comeback on the 19 x 8.5” MOMO Revenge wheels after nearly 3 decades.

Available in matte anthracite and matte black, it is a split-10 spoke wheel concaved in the center and comes with raised cap detail. The new MOMO Revenge EVO wheel that’s set to come out in 2016 is sharp too but it comes with a new finish.

Back in 1984, Volkswagen introduced the first Jetta GLI to the United States market and set the blueprint for all subsequent versions of this beloved sport sedan. For those who don’t know, the first Jetta GLI was in fact a Golf GTI running gear wrapped in a Jetta sheetmetal. It was powered by a 1.8-liter engine rated at 90 hp, bolted to a close-ratio five-speed transmission, sport suspension with front and rear anti-roll bars, and vented front disc brakes.

The exterior design showed a tail spoiler, and bodyside moldings, while inside Volkswagen installed a leather-wrapped four-spoke steering wheel and shift knob, three additional gauges in the center console, sport seats, and distinctive upholstery and interior trim.

2014 Jetta GLI follows the same recipe and it is powered by a 2.0-liter TSI engine bolted to a 2.0-liter TSI engine, a close-ratio six-speed manual or DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. Moreover, the Jetta GLI comes with a sport suspension, bigger wheels and tires, upgraded brakes, more aggressive body styling, and an interior that features sport seats and pedals.

Besides the Jetta Racer’s Dream, FMS Automotive also customizes another Mk6 Jetta, this time powered by the all-new 1.8-liter turbo engine. This model is actually a tribute to the 1989 Helios Special Edition Jetta GLI and comes in the same Helios Special Edition blue-and-black paint scheme as the late ‘80s original.

The color isn’t all, as the Jetta comes with custom body side moldings, a rear spoiler and side mirrors painted to match the Helios blue/black paint design theme. Golf R brake calipers featuring the “Helios” logo replace the standard pieces, while the 19-inch Volkswagen Motorsports wheels in ceramic gunmetal gray hide them.

For an enhanced sound and more style, a new custom exhaust system was added. Inside, we find Recaro sport buckets reupholstered in Helios-inspired blue, black and gray striped inserts.

The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo or Jetta GLI will be offered with more power due to the availability of a new engine. These models have also gotten several aesthetic modifications. The third generation of Volkswagen’s “EA888″ 2.0-liter turbo-four engine will be offered for the Beetle Turbo coupe and convertible, and Jetta GLI sedan.

This means that its output will get an extra 10hp, enabling the car to deliver 210hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. It now has a peak power at 5300 rpm instead of at 5100 rpm. Furthermore, Volkswagen asserts that the Beetle Turbo coupe can accelerate from zero to 60mph in 6.6 seconds, which means that it is faster by 0.2 second.

Meanwhile, the Jetta GLI is capable of going from a standstill to 60mph in 6.7 seconds, making it 0.1 second faster than current models with a manual transmission and 0.2 second quicker than those that feature a DSG dual-clutch.

As you may know already, earlier this year the Honda Civic already scored too low to be Recomended by Consumer Reports. As a result, Honda announced that the Civic will receive an update next year and hopes to boost its sales in the United States by 24 percent. Now there are some good news regarding the Civic: its sportier SI version earned a notably higher rating from Consumer Reports.

Still, the car suffers from many of the same drawbacks as other Civics: vague steering, cheap plastics, a jittery ride, and lots of noise. According to Consumer Reports, the Civic Si ranks 9 out of 11 of tested cars in Consumer Reports' sporty car category, and powered by the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine pumping 201 hp, the vehicle delivers terrific acceleration at high revs.

In terms of fuel-efficiency, the Civic Si returns a very good 29 mpg overall. "The Civic Si has a great powertrain, but it needs a better car wrapped around it," said David Champion, sr. director of Consumer Reports Automotive Test Center.
