Volkswagen GLI for sale
The Volkswagen GLI is a variant edition of the popular Volkswagen Jetta. Formerly referred to as the Volkswagen Jetta GLI, the sporty upgrade was introduced in 1984. The acronym ‘GLI’ stands for Grand Luxury Injection, a similar trim style to the Volkswagen Golf GTI or Grand Tourer Injection. The main difference between the two upgrades was that the Volkswagen Jetta GLI was larger and available in a four-door. However, the sportier and more powerful engine required a fitting name for the trim package. As of 2008, the model dropped the Jetta badge and has since been sold in Canada as the Volkswagen GLI.
Exciting Volkswagen GLI models
With such a long history, there are many model years of the Volkswagen GLI for sale. Enthusiasts look at the 2002 model as the year the Volkswagen GLI was put on the map. That was the year that the sporty sedan received its now-famous 2.8L narrow-angle VR6 engine. However, in 2006, the Volkswagen GLI gained more upgrades, including independent rear suspension and a 2.0L TSI engine. The 2012 and 2020 models were subsequently upgraded with modern technology befitting the growing trends of today's drivers.
