2013 Jetta GLI Gets More Power, Better Fuel Economy

Volkswagen is upgrading the Jetta GLI with the a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged engine with a slight bump in power over the 2012 model. 

In addition to a 10 hp increase to 210 hp (as well as 207 lb-ft of torque) it also nets better fuel economy. Unfortunately, that means buyers will be paying a little more for the Jetta GLI. As for improved fuel efficiency, it’s expected to get a 1 or 2 mpg boost more than the previous engine.

As for pricing, it’ll go up about $250 to $700 based on the engine and other trim and equipment changes. The improved fuel efficiency and performance is a result of lower engine weight and less friction. The higher mpg ratings won’t make an appearance on the window sticker until the 2014 models surfaces, but the new engine is fitted in GLI’s shipping now.
