My week spent in the Volkswagen, Jetta GLI Autobahn was wonderful. I truly enjoyed the experience. Beyond the exceptional sound quality of the BeatsAudio premium sound system.
It includes a 12.3-inch digital display that’s configurable. There is also an eight-inch touchscreen Car-net telematic system. On the Autobahn model, wireless charging comes standard.
There are also heated and cooled seats for both front passengers. Underneath the hood is a 2.0L turbo engine that makes 228 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque.
It’s mated to a six-speed manual transmission. It gets a fuel-efficient EPA-rated 33 MPG on the highway. I’m marveling at the fit and finish in the quality of the interior. I enjoy that driving points north, west, and east around Maryland and West Virginia.
My travels took me onI-8, I-70, I-495, and I-95. The base price on the autobahn model starts at $30,745.But let me tell you about more the features. The Pure Grey exterior paint is fantastic. It’s accented with Titan black leather interior.
Now in this model, you can feel both in the handling and the performance. In telematics, you have customization abilities along with options for the driver.
You have 18-inch alloy wheels. The GLI has a slew of active safety like adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist. It also has a light assist for your high beams. Another thing is the Volkswagen Car-net. It allows you to connect Apple Carplay and Android Auto. You also can mirror the screen of your mobile device.
The GLI Autobahn is mainly made in Mexico in the Pueblo Mexico plant. The transmission comes from Germany. The base price is $30,745.
The total delivered price including options like the gray paint came out to $32,035 dollars. For more information visit www.vw.com.
