2021 Volkswagen Jetta GLI

The GLI and Golf GTI pack a punch with their 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, producing a thrilling 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

And with the option of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission or a smooth six-speed manual, you can choose the driving experience that suits you best.

Acceleration is a major step up from the base Jetta’s 147-hp engine, and our testing even showed the automatic reaching 60 mph slightly faster.

Our only minor critique of the automatic transmission is its tendency to resist downshifting during spirited cornering. But the manual transmission is a breeze to operate.

In terms of handling, the Jetta GLI holds its own against its hatchback counterpart, thanks to a specially tuned suspension and optional performance tires. In fact, at our most recent Lightning Lap, the sedan even outpaced the Golf R and GTI.

And whether you opt for the standard shock absorbers or the available adaptive dampers on the top-tier Autobahn model, you can expect responsive steering, powerful brakes, and a comfortable ride in the Jetta GLI.
