The 2018 VW Jetta GLI is the top version of the Jetta, aimed at the performance and speed of the same as the GTI for the Golf. That means the 2018 Jetta GLI will be powered by a 210-horsepower 2-liter turbocharged engine, sport suspension, ambient lighting and many more badges.

Although Volkswagen is updating the 2018 VW Jetta, the changes will not be very significant since the current model is still one of the leaders in the class. So, you should expect a few changes here and there.

The 2018 VW Jetta will use the modular MQB platform. This will allow him to lose weight and include more aluminum and high-strength steel. Thus, you will notice that the 2018 VW Jetta will have a lower center of gravity, which will make it easy to handle, while improving fuel economy.

The exterior style will also receive a minor restyle, mainly centered on bumpers and headlights; the front bumper will have minor modifications, while the rear will be completely redesigned. Another novelty for the 2018 VW Jetta the automatic bi-xenon LED headlights and the revised grille.

The retaining plate of the Jetta is wrapped around an equally harmless interior that offers space in the shovels, especially at the back, with its 38 inches of leg height and 37.2 inches of free height. The leatherette found in most models looks good and should wear better than the real thing, while all models have seats with adjustable lumbar that in all but S trim are heated in the front.

On the other hand, a leather-lined interior is not offered, many switches surround the shifter, and, although the fit is very good, the mash-mash of hard plastic parts seems cheap which could be tolerable on the model basis, but totally unacceptable on the $ 30,000 GLI.
