As the big brother of Jetta GTI hatchback, 2017 VW Jetta GLI is coming back to the market with the possible revisions added for both the exterior and interior. With the quite extensive makeover in 2015 model year, we are pretty sure that the company will repeat the cycle by improving this sedan with the redesign.

To give something fresher for buyers, the front fascia for this car will be new and improved. The revisions around its outer part are quite major to make it more aggressive than before.

The slight redesign is added around the wheels with the Mallory design in size of 18 inches made of aluminum-alloy wheels for 2017 Jetta GLI.

The main highlight will be the new MIB 2 infotainment system, keyless access with pushbutton start, auto post-collision braking system, upgraded climate control, rear view camera and others.
