2022 Volkswagen Jetta GLI - New engine & added technology | Mini Auto



Starting price is about $31,000 USD

For more than four decades, the Jetta has been the torch for the Volkswagen brand, defining affordable German engineering. For the 2022 model year, Volkswagen of America launches a refreshed Jetta range with new technology and styling that elevates both the value-oriented Jetta and the sporty Jetta GLI.




“As the best-selling VW for over 30 years, the Jetta has proven to be an attractive value,” said Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy and Marketing. "This refresh takes the strengths of the current generation - spacious interior, excellent fuel economy and low maintenance costs - and builds on them with new design, better technology and continued With the introduction of the new Sport model, it will be easier for customers to own a car with sporty looks at a reasonable price. easier than ever."

The refreshed Volkswagen Jetta uses the 1.5-liter turbocharged and direct-injected EA211 engine found in the recently launched Taos small SUV. Making 158 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, the engine features a modified version of Volkswagen's Miller cycle in which the intake valves are closed early in induction stroke to help save fuel economy and has a very high compression ratio up to 11.5 to one. The result is a combination of low-speed torque and competitive fuel economy. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission or a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic.




Key features of the EA211, modified from the previous generation Jetta, include:

The APS-coated cylinder liners - whereby iron powder is plasma coated on the cylinder block - reduces friction between the cylinder liner and the piston rings. This process has been localized in the North American Region.
The map-controlled cooling module warms up the engine faster than the previous EA211 by controlling the flow of water in various parts of the engine to increase efficiency.
Variable turbine geometry (VTG). As one of the first high-volume production turbochargers with this technology in the North American Region, this turbocharger is more efficient, provides higher boost pressure and avoids high volume flow.
High-pressure injection system up to 350 bar raised from 200 bar - resulting in better fuel/air mixture injection, shorter injection times, optimized mixture formation, and better volumetric injection. lower particulate emissions.

The Volkswagen Jetta GLI is powered by a 2.0-liter EA888 engine that produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a seven-speed DSG® dual-clutch automatic is optional.

The Jetta and GLI models are based on Volkswagen's Trans-Modular Matrix platform (MQB) architecture. Both models have a strut front suspension, with the Jetta providing a torsion beam rear setup, while the GLI models have a multi-link rear suspension. Dubbed the "GTI with the trunk", the GLI boasts a VAQ electronically controlled torque-sensing limited-slip differential, which works in tandem with the XDS® Cross Differential System, as does the system. DCC® adaptive damping.
