Discover what's new about the 2024 Volkswagen Jetta GLI, the launch price and when it hits the market. Also see how it compares to the BMW 320i.

The 2024 Volkswagen Jetta GLI is coming, but what has changed from the previous model? Is it worth investing in? Let's find out the price, the news and when the new generation will be available. And, of course, we will do a comparison with the BMW 320i to see which one offers the best value for money.

With a design that attracts fans of the Golf GTI, the Jetta GLI 2024 maintained most of its features, but brought some interesting updates. Let's explore these changes and understand how it positions itself in the current market.

Volkswagen Jetta GLI continues to be an interesting option for those looking for a sports sedan

The 2024 Volkswagen Jetta GLI has not undergone any major changes since its last update in 2022. The pure gray color is one of the few visual changes. With the semiconductor crisis, the model lost some features, such as opening the doors by passing your hand over the lock, which was replaced by a button, and some injection nozzles.

Despite these changes, the Jetta GLI continues to be an interesting option for those looking for a sports sedan. The price suffered a significant increase, starting at around 224 thousand reais.

Jetta GLI offers a 2.0 Turbo EA888 engine

One of the most frequently asked questions is whether the Volkswagen Jetta GLI is better than the BMW 320i. The Jetta GLI offers a 2.0 Turbo EA888 engine, capable of generating 231 horsepower and 35,7 kgfm of torque. This provides acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6,8 seconds, with an average consumption of 8,6 km/l in the city and 13,7 km/l on the highway. The BMW 320i, on the other hand, is known for its refinement and performance, but with a significantly higher price, around R$322.000.

In addition to performance, the Jetta GLI is equipped with advanced safety and comfort technologies, including four-wheel disc brakes, an upgraded infotainment system and interior light customization options. However, it still lacks some features expected in a car of this level, such as air vents for the rear seats and more sophisticated finishing in certain areas.

The 2024 Jetta GLI is a solid option for those looking for an affordable, high-performance sports sedan. Compared to the BMW 320i, it offers an excellent balance between price and performance, being a viable alternative for sports car enthusiasts.
