The Jetta GLI Edition 30 brings along some new features such as – 18-inch “Laguna” aluminum-alloy wheels, red trim on the front grille, a boot spoiler and the quintessential special badging for the exteriors to announce the exclusiveness. The variant that will come equipped with a navigation system also gets red trim inside the Bi-Xenon headlights.

On the inside, the upcoming Volkswagen Jetta GLI Edition 30 will come with contrasting color V-Tex leatherette seats with red accents; red contrast stitching on the steering wheel, floor mats, shifter, brake lever, and armrests; carbon-look insers and Edition 30 kick sill plats.

    I own the 2013.5 GLI Autobahn and I see Edition 30's changes to be only cosmetic, also not making it look any better, but probably worse. I am a VW fanatic but these "laguna" wheels are not appealing to say the least. The current gen GLIs (Autobahn and Autobahn w/ Nav have stunning alloys and I have not been able to take my eyes off them since the moment I drove home this beauty of a car. There aren't any surprises in the powertrain department as well. I don't know if I should feel dissapointed with VW or be happy that my car looks a whole darn lot better than the supposed "Special Edition". *Feeling Bittersweet*
