At first glance, the 2015 Jetta GLI SEL retains its classic and clean lines with minimal, but well-appointed chrome accents. Framed by a blacked-out grille, the VW badging is the German automakers calling card. The snazziness of the GLI includes some really fly updates like rear deck lid spoiler, Bi-Xenon™ automatic headlights with Adaptive Front-light Systems (AFS), 18” 5-spoke rims and wrap-around rear brake lights. The four-door has the heart of a sports car with the functionality of a family sedan.
The Volkswagen Jetta has always been one of those cute lil’ sedans that packed a lot of style. Always the cool kids car in college or the millennial first “real” car, it has always held its own against its counterparts.
The smooth ride of the Jetta is powered by a 2.0L TSI™, 16-Valve turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with direct injection. Kicking out a combined 27 MPG (24-City and 32-Hwy) coupled with Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) rating this Jetta won’t break the bank at the pump. Cruising around the city with the trifecta of Electronic Stability Control, Front and Rear Independent Sport Suspension and 6-Speed DSG® Automatic Transmission w/Tiptronic ® was a smooth as butter.
Volkswagen is also committed to providing and secure driving experience. Filled to the gills with safety features like Driver and Front passenger airbag supplemental restraint systems, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS), Child Safety Rear Door Locks and Lower Anchor & Tethers for Children (LATCH), Side Curtain Protection®, Rearview Camera, Blind Spot Monitor w/ Rear Traffic Alert. No one ever wants to utilize these features, but the Rear Traffic Alert does work when called upon. While backing out of a parking spot on the end of a row another driver whipped around the corner and without the Rear Traffic Alert, the outcome could have been real ugly. The ABS w/front and rear disc brakes also came in handy on a slick and winding road in the Hollywood Hills. The aftermath of broken sprinkler system proved to be the perfect proving ground for the safety features of the Jetta.
While safety is always key, style and entertainment are just as important to The Car Diva. Anytime the musical powerhouse Fender puts their stamp on a sound system, you know it’s going to be good! I can roll around with my Spotify playlist blasting through the speakers and feel like I am front and center at the Greek Theater. The incredible sound system is housed in a comfortable and stylish cabin. The Climatronic® dual zone automatic climate control with a cool glove box was a hit on those beautiful spring days. Leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, brake handle and shift knob. The technology of Jetta is displayed via Bluetooth connectivity, Kessy® keyless access with push-button start, Media Device Interface (MDI), SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and Multifunction display w/trip monitor. The style is also kicked up via brushed metal pedal covers and metal door scuff plates.
If you want style, comfort and safety is a cute lil package that won’t break the bank…the 2015 Jetta GLI 2.0T SEL is the choice.
