Expert's Rating

2.9 (Fair)

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI includes some of the performance elements of the Golf GTI and Golf R, presenting an attractive balance of sportiness and value. Volkswagen imbued this small sedan with smart styling, a potent turbocharged engine, and ample standard features.

What's New for 2019

The 2019 Jetta GLI is an all-new model, part of the seventh-generation Jetta line launched this year (sixth for the GLI). An updated powertrain and more in-car and safety technologies highlight the changes.

Choosing Your Volkswagen Jetta GLI

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI is a five-passenger, front-wheel-drive compact performance sedan. It shares the same platform as other Jetta sedan models but adds performance features including a multi-link rear suspension, a limited-slip rear differential, and Golf R brakes.

The Jetta GLI has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Buyers have a choice of either the standard six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission for $800. This model makes an EPA-estimated 25 miles per gallon city, 32 mpg highway, and 28 combined, regardless of the transmission pairing.

There are three trims available:

S

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI S starts at $26,890 (all prices include the $895 destination charge). The list of standard equipment includes automatic LED projector headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, heated side mirrors, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and a rear spoiler. Inside, the GLI S has keyless entry with push-button start, full power accessories, cloth seats, heated front seats, air conditioning, and an electronic parking brake.

This model also has a six-speaker audio system, a 6.5-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and one USB port. On models equipped with the dual-clutch transmission, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters are included.

As for driver-assist technologies, Volkswagen includes a rearview camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and an automatic post-collision braking system.

35th Anniversary Edition

The special 35th Anniversary Edition is a $1,000 upgrade, bringing this model’s starting price to $27,890. Volkswagen dresses this trim with dark grey aluminum-alloy wheels with a red stripe. A black roof, black mirror caps, black tail spoiler, and anniversary badging inside and out are also found here. A DCC adaptive damping system is exclusive to this model.

Autobahn

Topping the GLI range is the Autobahn at $30,090. This trim includes a panoramic power tilt-and-slide sunroof, leather-trimmed seats, an eight-way power driver’s seat, and remote start on models equipped with the automatic transmission. Volkswagen also includes an eight-speaker Beats audio system, a CD player, two USB ports, and an 8-inch color touchscreen. A 10.25-inch digital cockpit and satellite radio round out the upgrades.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI supplies ride comfort rivaling luxury cars. The special 35th Anniversary Edition adds decorative treatments and an advanced damping system, all for a cost-effective $1,000 upgrade over the base price.
