Hi guys, I am trying to get back into VWs and am looking at a mk5.

Is there a 2.0t Jetta that is not a gli? If so, what is the difference?

Thanks for the help!

Fuel Stratified Injection
The latest development of this engine range. An all new cylinder head was needed for the Audi-developed Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI), which features cylinder-direct fuel injection straight into the combustion chambers. The result of needing to site both spark plug and fuel injector meant that the former five-valve layout had to be changed to a four-valve-per-cylinder arrangement. Like previous engines, where the T appears, it stands for forced induction, usually by a turbocharger.

2.0-litre TFSI, 147 kilowatts (200 PS; 197 hp) — 2005–present Volkswagen Golf Mk5 GTI, Volkswagen Jetta Mk5 GLI, Volkswagen Eos, Volkswagen Passat B6, Volkswagen Tiguan, 2006-2008 Audi A3


Yes there was a 2.0L Turbo Jetta.  It was basically the luxury version where the GLI was the sports version. The GLI was a GTI with a trunk with GTI wheels, GTI seats, blacked out trim with red accents.

The 2.0L T non GLI had chrome and nice multi-piece wheels and loaded with options. Very similar car to the GLI

Thanks for the clarification. Was there a difference in the suspension as well? It didn't feel the same as when I drove a GTI of a similar year but it might just be the difference in size.


I don't recall but most likely the GLI had sportier shocks/springs

Just curious, where has all the traffic gone? Seems slow on dubberz


kids now want to have the hellafrush looked with stretched tires that totally throw off speedo's and mileage tracking. They don't care about ride quality and fuel economy. - Vangruver


Thanks. Too bad, I like the forum better.
