2022 Volkswagen Jetta GLI for Sale in West Warwick, RI


The 2022 Volkswagen GLI is far more than a mode of transportation to get you between points A and B. With a more audacious attitude and elevated output over the regular Jetta, the GLI provides a sensational experience each time you sink into its bolstered seats. Its red brake calipers and other scarlet-hued exterior accents differentiate it visually, but the most noticeable difference – its elevated performance – becomes clear when you drive it. After a brief hiatus, this souped-up variation of the ever-popular four-door returned in 2019 and quickly made an impression with true driving enthusiasts. It’s a great way to enjoy the combination of German engineering, fine driving dynamics, and exceptional standard features without breaking the bank.

What’s New for 2022?

The Jetta GLI has been mildly refreshed for 2022. It shows off new front and rear bumpers, upgraded wheels, and a redesigned front grille that’s flanked by newly standard LED headlights. The interior shows off some new standard features, too, such as a digital gauge cluster, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Not only that, but the ’22 Jetta GLI also gets a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a refreshed look and a host of active safety features. It’s also eligible for the debuting Black Package, which blacks out the side mirrors, wheels, and rear spoiler.

Mechanical Specs

The ’22 Jetta GLI is a front-wheel drive, midsized sedan that’s offered in a single trim level called Autobahn. Under its hood is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 228 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine pairs with either a standard six-speed manual transmission – the domain of the true driving enthusiast – or an available seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Despite its potency, the ‘22 Jetta GLI is rather fuel-efficient: with the dual-clutch automatic it returns an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, and the manual-shift version ekes out 27 mpg around town (with the same highway rating).

Highlight Amenities

On the convenience front, the 2022 Jetta GLI gets LED exterior lights, heated side mirrors with position memory, keyless entry, push-button ignition, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a power driver’s seat (also with memory), a 10-inch digital gauge cluster, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, two front USB-C data ports and one center console USB-C charging port, and a wireless phone charger. Comforts are abundant in the ’22 Jetta GLI as well, since it’s supplied with dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seats (heated and ventilated in the front row), and a panoramic sunroof.

If you’re also out there to look stylish, you’ll appreciate the Jetta GLI’s red exterior accents, dual chrome exhaust pipes, 10-color customizable ambient interior lighting, and stainless-steel pedals. It also comes with a fully loaded infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice recognition, a Wi-Fi hotspot, SiriusXM satellite radio, HD radio, and a posh nine-speaker BeatsAudio sound system.

Active Safety Technologies

While the ’22 Jetta GLI certainly capitalizes on performance, it’s also stocked with plenty of confidence-inspiring driver-assist features. That roster includes adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, and lane keeping assist. The ’22 Jetta GLI also has an intelligent crash response system that will turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and activate the hazard lights in the event of a collision, as well as an automatic post-collision braking system that will slow the vehicle after a collision to avoid a secondary impact.
