    Next Jetta GLI To Get Some GTI Infusion

      This could include the turbo 2.0L found in the GTI

    We know that Volkswagen is planning a high-performance GLI variant of the new Jetta that is expected in the near future. Thanks to Autoblog, we have gotten some interesting information about what we should expect.

    Speaking to a Volkswagen representative, Autoblog learned that the new GLI will feature a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder. It is expected to be the same engine found in the GTI which produces 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. There will be a choice of either a six-speed manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch. The representative also said the GLI would swap the torsion-beam rear suspension found on the standard Jetta for a multi-link independent setup.

    Expect to see the Jetta GLI make its debut during the next auto show season, possibly at LA or Chicago.

    yeah VW really punted on the design, it looks like Hyundai or something now.  Or a Ford Taurus / Sonata mashup.

    BUt, that means it will probably sell huge!  Plus it seems a little more exciting than a Cruze now too.

    The interior seems nice on this car.  I like the driver oriented dash.

    Even just offering a powertrain and this suspension setup should reward VW.  There is a huge lack of smaller cars with any performance ability nowadays and there's still folks that will prefer a sedan over the Golf type hatch.

    I'd like to see Chevy offer a 250hp Cruze.  Doesn't need to be a 9/10th car like a Focus ST.  But something like a GTi, chevy version.
