|The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta GLI.|
For the uninitiated, I am drawing a comparison between Volkswagen's GTI (a Golf hatchback) and its GLI (a Jetta sedan). And the truth is, that single letter changes a lot of things.

The best way to view the GLI is to think of it as the ultimate Jetta. We like the Jetta, as evidenced by our review about six months ago of the 1.8-liter turbo model. The GLI adds 40 horsepower, 18-inch alloy wheels, grippier summer tires and brushed metal pedal covers. It also adds $4,370 to the price ($28,020 instead of $23,650) and deducts one mile per gallon in the city (25 falls to 24) and five on the highway (37 becomes 32).
