2022 VW Jetta and GLI rock new looks, sharper tech

Cars
Speaker 1: Volkswagen has sold something like 18 million Jettas worldwide, over 3.5 million of them right here in the us. That's quite a feat as a mainstay of VWs lineup. This compact sedan has been around for over 40 years. You don't look a day over 39, honest I kid, but VWs working hard to make sure that no gray creeps in around the Jettas temples for 2022, the model is getting a little nip tuck. And as you can see the changes out to a much broader front grill [00:00:30] and a completely different front bumper there's new bumper out back to along with new wheel patterns. But Hey, the biggest thing is that there's actually a hard transplant, updated tech and a new sport trim. Let's start with that. New heart VW has yanked last year's 1.4 turbo four in its place, a big block, 1.5 liters. Okay. So the new engine is actually based on the old one. Speaker 1: It's the updated board out EA two 11 borrowed from VWs new towels. It turns out 158 horsepower and 184 [00:01:00] pound feet of torque. The same numbers is in the compact SUV that works out to an 11 horse bump over last year. And while the peak torque value remains unchanged, it's accessible lower in the rev range for better drivability. Oh, and the performance oriented G I this guy right here. Well, it holds on to last year's two liter turbo, including its 228 horsepower and 258 pound fit. It's the latest version of what was my very first car. And today it remains a criminally underappreciated driver's car. [00:01:30] It's not based on the new updated chassis of the Mar eight GTI hatch, but it does get some visual tweaks of its own, including a new rearer bumper cap with a honeycomb and a much larger. And apparently throatier exhaust. Speaker 1: Plus it's got all the stay and Jeter's updated safety gear and infotainment tech. So let's take a look over there. The cabin features a standard digital gauge cluster, which is pretty rare at this price point plus wifi. And you can get VWs M IB three infotainment along with wireless charging and wireless app support, [00:02:00] including apple CarPlay and Android auto a on the safety front, all Jettas get automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitor, and rear cross traffic alert IQ drive a suite of tech, including lane keep assist and adaptive. Cruise is optional. This level two system even features emergency assist, which will actually stop the vehicle. If the driver becomes incapacitated and doesn't respond to multiple warnings for 2022, VW is introducing a new Jetta sport trim, which replaces the [00:02:30] R line. This model gets the XDS electronic diff lock out of the G I plus stiffer Springs, some blackout trim and cloth sports seats. Speaker 1: Unfortunately VW doesn't have any images of the sport yet. So please enjoy this montage of the OG mark one. Instead. Now there's no pricing or fuel economy info just yet, but the outgoing Jetta starts at around 20 grand delivered and that's up to 41 miles per gallon. I don't see any reason why this 2022 would stray too far from those nice numbers. Thanks to the world's [00:03:00] love affair with SUVs. The Jetta's best sales days are definitely behind it, but that doesn't mean that this one isn't worth a long look when it hits showrooms late this year.
