A few weeks ago, Volkswagen introduced the new generation of the sporty version of one of the most successful models of the brand, the 2016 Jetta GLI sedan. This new model, which boasts of being the sedan version of the famous and well accepted Golf GTI, receives a more aggressive design, more technology and a plus in terms of safety.

As for its engine, the German company chose the same motor that uses its 'hatchback brother', the EA888, a 4-cylinder 2.0L TSI turbocharged of direct injection that develops 210-HP, which can be associated to both, a manual and an automatic DSG transmission.

What stands out the most about the exterior design of this 2016 GLI, is the sports line that is reflected thanks to the new grille, small spoilers and the integrated fog lights in the bumper. At the rear of the body, the difference with the conventional model is that it includes a subtle air diffuser with twin exhaust pipes. It also comes with 18" aluminum wheels with Mallory design and a sports suspension specially adjusted.

The passenger compartment has the general finishes of the brand and the inclusion of the information and entertainment system, MIB 2, with USB and Car-Net connectivity.

At the same time, the available equipment is divided in two different trim models, SE and SEL, both offering features such as Blind Spot Warning, sunroof, post-collision braking, Bi-Xenon lights with LED technology, rear parking camera and powered driver's seat with all the regulations, among others.

The AFS, which is available only on the SEL model, rotates the headlights up to 15 degrees to help illuminate the curves in the road more effectively at speeds greater than 6 mph.

The new 2016 Jetta GLI will be produced at the Puebla (Mexico) plant, and will be marketed in the coming months.
