Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Overview

Neil Cumins
Automotive Editor

What's New

The performance-oriented 2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI only sees a few changes for the new model year. VW's Car-Net remote telematics system is standard, as is in-car wi-fi hot spot capability. Autobahn models also receive wireless charging and an adaptive damping system.

Choosing Your Volkswagen Jetta GLI

The VW Jetta GLI is available in two trims: S and Autobahn. Pricing starts at $27,165 including destination for the S and $30,865 for the Autobahn.

Engine Choices

Every Jetta GLI is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, generating 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission are standard. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox is optional on both S and Autobahn models for $800.

The Jetta GLI earns an EPA-estimated 25 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 28 combined withe manual, or 25/32/28 mpg (city/highway/combined) with the automatic.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The VW Jetta GLI has room for five passengers and a trunk that offers 14.1 cubic feet of cargo space.

Safety Features

Standard driver assistance technology includes automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Safety is also addressed with a post-collision braking system that applies the brakes to reduce the risk of additional damage occurring. An intelligent crash response system also turns off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and activates the hazard lights.


The VW Jetta GLI features a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Bluetooth, a six-speaker audio system, and one USB port are included. Autobahn models benefit from an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless device charging, a Beats audio system, another USB port, satellite radio, HD radio, and a CD player.

The big news for 2020 is the now-standard next generation of the app-controlled Car-Net service. This supports everything from remote cabin locking/unlocking and lights/horn activation to live data on fuel level and mileage.

S - From $27,165

The Jetta GLI S comes with LED headlights and taillights, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, red brake calipers, a rear spoiler, and dual chrome exhaust tips. Red stitching recurs throughout the cabin, which also features stainless steel pedal caps and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Keyless entry and push-button start are standard alongside heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and a 10-color interior ambient lighting system. The seats are wrapped in cloth with a six-way manual adjustment for the driver.

Autobahn - From $30,865

Autobahn models benefit from a sunroof, leather seats, ventilated front seats, a six-way power driver's seat, and the larger touchscreen. A 10.25-inch digital cockpit replaces the standard instrument panel, capable of displaying data from compass and current elevation to estimated range and live acceleration data.

The adaptive chassis control lets keen drivers tailor the car to suit their driving preferences, such as adjusting suspension damping settings. The side mirrors gain memory functionality.

CarsDirect Tip

If your budget will stretch, the 2020 VW Jetta GLI Autobahn is the model to go for. The superior infotainment system and instrumentation display will be irresistible to many buyers, especially since the standard system in S models can’t be upgraded.
