Volkswagen goes buckwild with the Jetta at this yr’s SEMA display. The corporate is unveiling a brand new thought – the Jetta GLI Efficiency – this is intended to take VW’s efficiency compact sedan to the following stage whilst additionally reminiscent of GLIs of years long gone by way of.
The widebody GLI Efficiency thought began lifestyles as a 2022 Jetta GLI with a six-speed guide, however it’s so a lot more now. The fenders in any respect 4 corners had been widened by way of 0.8 inches with bottom vents at the entrance and rear. They’re paired up with better facet skirts, a customized entrance bumper and grille, and a customized hexagon-themed matte black vinyl wrap that transitions to the GLI’s manufacturing facility Kings Crimson Steel paint colour. All in all, it appears beautiful killer. She’s low and she or he’s W I D E.
The GLI Efficiency thought isn’t near to appears, even though. Masses has been achieved beneath the hood to earn it the “Efficiency” title. Volkswagen tells us they’ve added a RacingLine turbo efficiency package deal, an R600 carbon fiber cold-air consumption and function intercooler, in addition to an upgraded oil control package and oil cooler. Energy nonetheless is routed to the entrance wheels simplest thru a six-speed stick shift with an upgraded efficiency grab.
At the most sensible of energy, the ones changes lent themselves to a large bump in each horsepower and torque. Volkswagen says the GLI Efficiency thought pumps out 350 horsepower and 372 lb-ft of torque. That’s up giant time from the 225 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque the usual GLI produces.
All of that energy approach Volkswagen additionally needed to improve the brakes for the GLI Efficiency. The corporate added RacingLine’s six-piston solid caliper giant brake package with 15-inch carbon-ceramic discs.
Enveloping the ones giant brakes are a collection of 20-inch Rotiform Cast GRZ Monoblock wheels with customized covers. Hell yeah, turbofans!
The sedan rides on RacingLine’s TrackSport coil-over suspension gadget as neatly as fully-adjustable forged most sensible mounts. I’m gonna take a shot at midnight and say this’ll be some very stiff suspension. I imply, the GLI Efficiency is supposed for some monitor responsibility, in any case.
No longer an excessive amount of has modified inside of, however the driving force and passenger of the GLI Efficiency can be handled to Recaro Pole Place ABE seats completed in a customized “Texagon” theme upholstery.
You’ll have the ability to see the GLI Efficiency thought at SEMA, and that’s most certainly the one position you’ll have the ability to, which is just too unhealthy. The sector wishes extra turbofan wheels.
