Sporty-looking, fun-handling car, with attention to detail. The black leather with red stitching gives the interioar a sleek, racy appeal. For a smaller car, there is an abundance of interior space. In addition to interior space, the trunk also is functional and large. The turbocharged engine (yet only a 4-cylinder) has a lot of pep. The paddle shifters respond quickly and accurately.

Dislikes

No major dislikes. However, the navigation could have higher-quality map and GPS system.

Verdict

I loved everything about this car. Practical, sporty, spacious and easy to drive. Comfortable enough to take on a long drive and small enough for easy city parking. For the price, the Jetta GLI has everything you could want for a decent price tag. This is one worth looking at.
