Do you think you’re staring at the sexy face of a Volkswagen Golf GTI?

Nope. Notice the different badge on the sporty honeycomb grille. It says GLI instead of GTI. This beauty is actually a Volkswagen Jetta GLI.

When I first saw this car I thought it was a Golf GTI as well, then I noticed it was a bit taller and it *gasp* had a boot! It has the same redesigned sporty bumper, the same honeycomb grille and the smoked headlamps. Even the sports rims are the same.

The Jetta GLI is powered by the same 2.0 FSI direct injection turbocharged engine found in the Golf GTI that makes 200hp and comes with a six-speed manual transmission. This combination allows the car to go from 0-100km/h in 6.7 seconds. Optionally, a six-speed DSG automatic is available.

DSG is a type of computer-controlled clutch manual transmission which employs twin-clutches for faster gearshifts.

I hope Wald Amazing Tempo brings in the CBU Volkswagen Jetta GLI here. I’m dying to see it on the road, or at least in showrooms. The car could do with a bit of lowering though. The gaps between the wheel and the wheel arch looks a bit big for a car which is supposed to carry a sporty look.

Has anyone noticed how the Volkswagen Jetta looks kind of similiar to our Toyota Corolla Altis?
