Incredibly good handling, nice high rev power with the turbos, and surprisingly good fuel economy over long trips (34 mpg). I rent many "premium" vehicles as part of my job - I always love getting back in my 2014 GLI. The MK6 frame is very well balanced and the 2.0L turbo is perfectly matched in regards to power:weight ratio. The GLI is not trying to be a muscle car - but you will absolutely go through front tires every 10k if you buy a soft compound and drive aggressively.
Great, reliable euro car.
2011 Volkswagen JettaJeremy S - Acworth, GA05/08/2015
The 2.5L engine has a nice, snappy feel to it. Plenty of power. Rear seat has TONS of room for a sedan that's on the smaller side. Gas mileage is fantastic, regularly hit around 30 even when driving on my short commute to work on a regular basis. 33-35 on the open highway between 70-75MPH. Only detractor is the cabin is a bit noisy at higher speeds, even with quieter tires.
Even with an automatic transmission, in sport mode this thing is a blast to drive. Lots of customization options available for you aftermarket fans. No major issues, I've put about 30k miles on it since purchasing it and haven't had to do a thing other than regular service visits.
I love this Jetta. This car accelerates better than my v-6 Sonata! Tight controlled ride but not too stiff, stable in turns. I love the leather interior and utility of the amenities. The only thing I don't like is the hard plastic dash...but this is just an annoyance as this is a Sport model and weight savings is the theme! Sport is between SE and GLI.
