The Jetta GLI received a redesign for the 2016 model year, appearing more aggressive than before. The grille has a honeycomb style with foglights while the rear bumper also gets a redesign. Also at the back of the vehicle are a pair of chrome-tipped exhaust pipes.
A K&N cold air system for the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta GLi completely replaces the factory air filter and intake path with an aerodynamic intake tube and high flow performance air filter. K&N VW cold air intakes are backed by the famous K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty.
