Carrying The Hot Hatch Flame..With Four Doors And A Trunk

1987 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 16v

Basically, the Jetta GLI was the sedan version of the GTI – very little was changed other than the bodystyle. The 16 valve engine, as fitted to this car, added another twenty or so horsepower, and a willingness to rev that added plenty of fun.

One might look at this Jetta as a bargain alternative to a BMW E30. No, it won’t hang with an M3, but it provides similar interior size and trim, and fun driving character much like a base 3-series. Plus, there is a massive contingent of VW fanatics nationwide who will always seek out low-mileage cars like this – as long as it’s kept clean and straight, it’s hard to lose on this.

It’s on The Samba on Long Island for $5900 or offer.1987 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 16v engine 1987 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 16v interior 1987 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 16v red profile

    “One might look at this Jetta as a bargain alternative to a BMW E30.”

    It was very much marketed as one by VW, to considerable success, when it was new.
