Jetta GLI Exterior  
   
 

No doubt about it, Volkswagen vehicles are fun to drive, and the new 2021 Jetta GLI is no exception. As the Jetta lineup's sportiest model, the GLI sedan is also a practical vehicle that makes it great for running errands with the family or for a night out on the town. The 2021 version has only a few minor changes that maintain the same aesthetic of this popular vehicle.

The Jetta is built on Volkswagen's MQB platform and used for the Tiguan and Atlas SUVs, giving it a roomy interior while also expressing classic European styling. LED headlights and taillights along with alloy wheels are standard on all Jettas in 2021, while the GLI also gets adaptive cruise control that helps maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you while on the highway.

Where the Jetta GLI shines, however, is in its power and a fine ride. It comes equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Buyers get their choice of a six-speed standard transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The GLI's specially tuned suspension, responsive steering, and strong brakes give drivers a more-than-compliant ride. A mechanical front differential and selectable drive modes are also standard. The Autobahn trim gives buyers an even better ride thanks to adaptive dampers.

2021 VW Jetta GLI Interior

Inside, the S trim gives you customizable ambient lighting, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, and push-button start, a flat-bottom leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a center stack tilted slightly toward the driver. The Autobahn trim provides buyers with a larger digital gauge cluster, ventilated front seats, and a panoramic sunroof. No matter whether you choose cloth or leather seating, every GLI features distinctive red stitching. Both trims have a user-friendly infotainment system with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and two USB ports. The Autobahn adds a 400-watt BeatsAudio sound system and wireless charging. It also has a huge trunk that stores lots of luggage and gear.
