Jetta GLI


The redesigned
2022 Jetta GLI

From the rush of its turbocharged engine to its eye-catching design and style, the redesigned 2022 Jetta GLI brings German-engineered thrills to Canada.




With a 228-hp 2.0L TSI® turbocharged engine, the Jetta GLI delivers a drive so exhilarating, it will seem way too short, no matter how long of a ride it is.

Sport suspension

The Jetta GLI’s lowered sport-tuned suspension, featuring performance front and rear sway bars and electronically adjustable shock absorbers, makes easy work of tight corners.


Mechanical limited-slip differential

The mechanical limited-slip differential automatically adjusts torque between the front wheels for precise cornering. Point the steering wheel to the apex, punch the gas and go.†

†Please drive safely and obey all traffic laws, including speed limits.

Performance disc brakes

German engineering doesn’t just drive well, it also brakes well. The Jetta GLI features performance disc brakes that boast reliable and powerful braking.


Standard on auto transmission

Change how you change gears in the Jetta GLI. Paddle shifters on the automatic transmission allow you to quickly and simply shift gears while exercising greater control.

It’s all about balance

The Jetta GLI features sport-tuned Dynamic Chassis Control, a computer-controlled adaptive damping system that ensures a balance between razor-sharp handling responses and ultimate driving comfort. Plus, this advanced system allows you to adjust the suspension and steering stiffness to suit the road conditions or your driving style.


Design and comfort

This is how we roll

The powerful 2022 Jetta GLI boasts the beautiful 18” black Sevilla wheels. It’s style and performance, rolled into one.


What a view

The Jetta GLI’s available Rail 2 Rail power sunroof spans from roof to windshield and, of course, rail to rail.

The world at your fingertips

The Jetta GLI always steers clear of mediocrity. That’s why it comes with a leather-wrapped multi-function sport steering wheel with touch controls, taking your driving experience to the next level.


Cool down or warm up

Keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter thanks to the Jetta GLI’s standard ventilated and heated front seats with heated rear seats.

Nice outfit

The Jetta GLI is fashioned with new black leather seats with red perforation, contrast stitching, and dark hairline red gloss trim.


On the brighter side

LED headlights, tail lights, and daytime running lights all come standard in the Jetta GLI. You’ll love them, and the driver behind you will appreciate them too.

GLI styling

Become the envy of every driver on the road. The GLI’s aerodymanic styling includes striking red calipers, a sporty rear lip spoiler, and large ventilated disc brakes with incredible stopping power. Add to that a black honeycomb diffuser and a wider dual exhaust that looks and sounds great. Finish off with the exclusive sport bumper and GLI badge, and you’re guaranteed stares wherever you go.


Technology and Convenience

The collection of intelligent driver assistance features can keep you confident on any road.

Travel Assist

Your commute, simplified

Travel Assist** is an advanced driver assistance system combining Lane Keeping Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control designed to help keep your vehicle positioned in its lane and at a constant distance from the vehicle ahead of you. It uses a pre-set following distance to automatically make adjustments based on the surrounding traffic, but you’ll need to keep your hands on the steering wheel for the feature to operate.

**Driver assistance feature. Drivers must continue to perform manual checks and pay full attention to the road and safe driving at all times. See owner’s manual for important information and feature limitations.

No more surprises

If the vehicle senses an impending collision with another vehicle, bicycle, or pedestrian, Front Assist is designed to warn the driver with an audible tone. It is also designed to automatically apply the brakes under certain conditions, so if the driver doesn’t react, the vehicle can.†
