Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T

Place: Budget Banditos

The Jetta we tested, in April had a 2.8-liter six—VW’s unique its handsomely sculpted hood, a big advantage over the GLS tested It hit 60 mph in 7.7 seconds, 100 in 22.0, and covered the in 16.1 seconds at 88 mph. GLS tester trumped those handily, hitting 60 mph in 7.2, 100 in and the quarter in 15.7 seconds at 89 It was also the quickest to 60 in this and ran side by side with the SE-R in the other acceleration Pretty snappy for a car weighing in at porkiest of the pack and 210 pounds than the SE-R.

So how’d they do that? The way: VW added more By turning up the pressure in the Jetta’s and intercooled induction system, the DOHC 20-valve four 180 horses and 174 pound-feet of torque 150 hp and 155 pound-feet in its previous Jetta Just as important, the torque has an upper plateau roughly the of Kansas, peaking at 1950 rpm and there all the way to 5000 rpm. is the most powerful four offered by VW, and it makes the Jetta in straight-ahead performance, a stout when the driver pulls out to and wants extra haste.

As the test began, the Jetta like the winner with its vigor, exceptional build excellent materials, quiet and creamy ride quality. But the roads developed kinks, our began to wane. We discovered the supple ride was the result of springs and modest roll which made its progress the Hocking Hills loop and the track more adventurous one might wish. Too much motion, observed one tester, a fast horse that galloping should include a bit of too.

The logbook also contained complaints about rubbery quality and turbo lag. it didn’t rate high as a sports sedan, it was a big favorite on the despite seats that short on lateral support. The of the bunch, wrote one. engine and ride. And later: but not very sporty.

About the posh part. The GLS our 20-grand ceiling by a resounding but only because it came two option packages—Leather ($1050) and Luxury (17-inch wheels, sunroof, and sport suspension for plus a $325 Monsoon system. Pare that and the bill’s $20,100.

Whether it will get around as well is another question, even with the Sport package, the Jetta delivers too rock and roll for our tastes. marketing tagline is Drivers and the dynamics of our test car tells us about what the German thinks of American drivers.
