На автосалоне в Чикаго состоялась премьера нового седана Volkswagen Jetta GLI. Автомобиль получил новую подвеску, мотор от Golf GTI и тормоза от Golf R.

С октября 2017 года Volkswagen понемногу проливал свет на новый седан Jetta GLI и наконец-то официально представил модель официально. Премьера автомобиля состоялась на автосалоне в Чикаго и машина многим удивила!

Volkswagen Jetta GLI, 2019 год

Визуально GLI отличается чёрно-красными декоративными элементами на кузове, новыми бамперами спереди и сзади, компактным спойлером и новыми патрубками выхлопа. Ещё можно отметить сотовый рисунок решётки радиатора и особые 18-дюймовые колёса.

С технической точки зрения GLI — это больше, чем просто спортивная версия машины. Например, задняя балка заменена на независимую многорычажную подвеску, на передней оси появился дифференциал с ограниченным проскальзыванием, а тормоза вовсе установлены от мощного хэтчбека Volkswagen Golf R.

Что касается двигателя, то Jetta GLI оснащается 2-литровым бензиновым турбомотором от Volkswagen GTI Rabbit Edition, что подразумевает мощность в 228 л.с. Сочетается мотор с 6-ступенчатой механической коробкой передач или 7-диапазонным "роботом" DSG.

Кроме базовой Jetta GLI в Volkswagen хотят сделать и версию 35th Anniversary, которая получит адаптивную подвеску и 5-й режим работы электроники. Не говоря уже о чёрном декоре кузова, особых дисках и шильдиках спецверсии.

Новый Volkswagen Jetta GLI появится у американских дилеров уже весной 2019 года, а сроки выхода на рынок исполнения 35th Anniversary пока не назван.

Chicago, IL (February 7, 2019)– Today, Volkswagen of America, Inc., unveiled the new 2019 Jetta GLI at the
Chicago Auto Show. In 2018, Volkswagen completely overhauled the compact Jetta to cater specifically to
American buyers,with bolder design, more interior space than the outgoing model, and new technology.
Building on the success of that model, today’s GLI ups the performance ante with more power, sharper
handling, and features shared with GTI and Golf R.


“Volkswagen has long been synonymous with small, sporty cars,” said Scott Keogh, CEO, Volkswagen Group of
America. “The redesigned 2019 Jetta proved once more that its combination of design, technology and value
continues to resonate with buyers. The 2019 GLItakes the Jetta foundation and adds performance features
from the GolfGTI to give buyers a true sport sedan.”


While the 2019 GLI features the MQB architecture, coupe-like profile and oversized grille of the redesigned
Jetta, it adds sporty styling cues hint at its beefed-up powertrain. Featuring a sport suspension, the GLI sits 0.6
inches lower than a regular Jetta, giving it more planted look. Standard LED projector headlights with LED DRLs
flank a black honeycomb grille with red accent line that harkens to the GTI. Golf R brakes, with red-painted
calipers, stand out in the sleek 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels that are exclusive to GLI. In the rear, standard
LED taillights are joined by a spoiler and unique rear bumper with finned diffusor and dual chrome exhaust tips
to give it truly unique rear view. A 35thAnniversary model features unique black wheels with a red stripe, a black
roof, black mirror caps, black tail spoiler, and 35th anniversary badging inside and out.


Inside, the GLI transforms the Jetta’s modern cabin with nods to the Volkswagen performance family. A black
interior sets the stage for red accents to pop throughout—red stitching is used on the steering wheel, shifter,
armrest and floormats. Comfort sport seats feature red stitching no matter the material; cloth seats on the base
model add grey piping, while red accents peek out of the Autobahn’s perforated leather seats. Diamond flag
décor trim reinforces the sporty nature of the car, as does the standard leather-wrapped sport multifunction
steering wheel and available sport HMI display from the GTI. The 35thAnniversary model has unique seat tags,
floormats, and sill kickplates.


The 2019 GLI is powered by Volkswagen’s 2.0-liter turbocharged and direct-injection EA888 TSI® engine,
making 228 horsepower(achieved with premium fuel) and 258 pound-feet of torque, 18 more horsepower and
41 lb-ft more than the previous GLI. This engine, shared with GTI,features variable valve timing on the intake
and exhaust sides, as well as variable exhaust valve lift.


The power is taken to the front wheels via a standard six-speed manual transmission, with an available seven-speed DSG® dual-clutch automatic transmission. Automatic transmission models come standard with a
Start/Stop system designed to improve fuel efficiency. This technology stops the engine during idle when the
brake pedal is held (such as when waiting at a stop light). When the brake pedal is released, the engine restarts.
The Jetta GLI features an all-around independent sport suspension, with a strut-type setup at the front and a
multi-link arrangement at the rear. The brakes are shared with the Golf GTI and Golf R, using 13.4-inch diameter
vented front discs. Like the GTI, the GLI is fitted as standard with Volkswagen’s VAQ electronically controlled,
torque sensing limited-slip differential that helps to eliminate understeer, as well as variable ratio electric
steering. The 35thAnniversary model is also fitted with the DCC® adaptive damping system.


Driving Mode Selection comes standard, and allows drivers to customize their vehicle’s dynamic behavior. This
system includes four modes to choose from: “Normal,” “Sport,” “Eco,” and “Custom.”Normal mode gives a
balanced drive experience, while Sport is tuned for a more dynamic throttle and shift response, tighter steering,
and a more spirited exhaust note. Eco mode optimizes shift points, throttle response and climate control
settings for improved fuel economy. Custom allows a driver to tailor the steering,throttle, front differential,
engine note, and climate control settings. The 35thAnniversary model with DCC allows the driver to adjust
damping settings and also adds a fifth “Comfort” mode.


An impressive list of creature comforts and technology come standard on GLI. To keep passengers comfortable,
heated seats, dual-zone Climatronic® automatic climate control, automatic headlights, KESSY® keyless access
with push-button start, rain-sensing wipers, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror are standard.


Standard technology features include Driver Personalization, App-Connect technology that offers compatible
smartphone integration with the three major platforms—Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink®—and
10-color customizable wrap-around ambient lighting. Available features include a sunroof, the Volkswagen
Digital Cockpit display with unique GLI graphics, 400-watt BeatsAudio® system, Volkswagen Car-Net®
connected vehicle services, SiriusXM® radio, Voice Control, a second USB port, power driver seat with memory
and lumbar, ventilated seats, and remote start.


The GLI’s technology features extend beyond the cabin to include a comprehensive suite of standard safety and
driver assistance technology. Standard features include Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency
Braking (Front Assist), Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, and the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System.
Every GLI model will come with the People First Warranty, America’s Best Bumper-to-Bumper Limited
Warranty. The warranty provides coverage for six-years or 72,000-miles (whichever occurs first), and the
warranty can be transferred to a subsequent owner throughout the remainder of its duration.


The 2019Volkswagen Jetta GLI will be available in two regular trim levels and a 35thAnniversary Edition. Itis
expected to begin arriving at U.S. Volkswagen dealers in the Spring of 2019.
