The press service of the company presented the first teaser video, as well as some details about the future novelty. The engine will probably share the 220-strong hot hatch Volkswagen Golf GTI.

At the Chicago Auto Show, Volkswagen will present a new generation Jetta GLI sedan with the engine from the hot hatch Golf GTI. It became known about this after a new message on the official Facebook account of the company. The presentation will take place on February 7, 2019 as part of the opening of the motor show. The automaker describes the novelty as a car with a sedan and the heart of a Golf GTI.

“Charged” sedan will borrow not only the technical stuffing, but also acquire the classic style of all sports modifications, including the grille with the brand red stripe. Another detail will be tinted front and rear optics.

As the power unit will be used 2.0-liter turbo engine, capable of developing up to 220 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. Together with him will offer “mechanics” or “robot.”

The increase in power demanded that engineers refine and rework hodovki. The rear suspension from torsion beams turned into a multi-link. Also, the dynamic characteristics required a modification of the braking system.
