But what is the difference between the GL, GLS, GLX, and GLI Volkswagen Jetta models? We’ll dive into this deeper, but for now, suffice it to say that the GL is the base model, budget friendly version. The GLS is the “sport” edition with options for different engines and transmissions and sport suspension.
Carlos. I believe GLS is Grand Luxury Sport and GLX is Grand Luxury. They’re just trim levels of a car.

It’s a front-wheel drive front-engined compact hatchback with a choice of 3-5 doors & 5 seats. With 113 hp, the naturally aspirated 2 Liter 8v Inline 4 gasoline engine accelerates this Golf GL 2.0 to 62 mph in 11.6 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 121 mph.
The Volkswagen MK4 (MKIV) Jetta, also called “Volkswagen Bora” or “Volkswagen Jetta A4”, is the fourth-generation (Mark 4) version of the Volkswagen Jetta. The Volkswagen MK4 Jetta was sold from 1998 – 2005, and in fact is still being produced/sold in China.
In this round, surprisingly, the GLX is victorious. The 1.2L 3-cylinder engine is the only option across the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 lineup, yet on each trim, the power it delivers is divergent. In fact, at 6,000 rpm, the GLX ekes out 78 horsepower while the GLS is only capable of 76 hp.
