2006 Volkswagen Jetta GLI

2006 Volkswagen Jetta GLI

With Volkswagen's introduction today of the new 2006 Jetta GLI ($TBA), it looks like the company finally came to its senses and will be offering a model without the ridiculous chrome on the frontend — and we couldn't be happier. The new GLI model (pricing not yet announced) features a 2.0 T turbocharged four-cylinder that's good for 200-hp and is available with a six-speed DSG automatic transmission with Tiptronic shifting. In addition to the standard Jetta features, the GLI has an upgraded suspension, blue-tinted windows, optional 18-inch alloy wheels, alloy pedals and trim, and a three-spoke, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio and telephone controls and DSG shift paddles.

    So this is a coupe huh? The old men at Mercedes appear to have lost their minds, as this model has four full doors, which in our eyes makes it a sedan — but a darn sexy sedan. The 2006 CLS500 ($66,000) features a 5.0L V-8 engine, 302 horsepower, and a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds. Not bad for a “coupe,” but really impressive for a sedan. We guess it’s also worth mentioning that it comes with enough gadgetry and safety technology to make any geek jealous.
