Styling

The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta made its world debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show this year. For the 2015 model, the popular Volkswagen sedan carries a handful of really subtle styling changes that work together to inject a dose of freshness into the four year old car.

For the exterior, the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta facelift comes with a slightly bolder front grille that seems to mimic the bigger Passat. Also, the headlights gets bi-Xenon elements, along with LED daytime running lights (DRLs). The front bumper gets subtle revisions in the form of larger air-intakes and a new design for the foglights. At the rear-end, the car gets Audi-like LED taillamps.

For the cabin, the 2015 Jetta comes with a new piano black trim, a flat-bottom steering wheel, a new touchscreen infotainment system and a revised instrument cluster.

  1. Please correct this article.
    It is available in India with a 1.4TSI not a 1.8.
    And the same engine will be carried forward in the new car as well

  2. The new Jetta looks nice from all angles, but the rear boot lid needs to be redesigned… Something is just not right about it. Also before the launch, the suspensions need to be fine-tuned for Indian roads.

  3. Sir we are planning to buy a new car very soon and the vw jetta trendline tsi fits in our budget. Though it is our first choice but is it okay to go for the vw jetta trendline or should we go for the vw vento highline as we expect the car to give a decent mileage and one that can be used for a long time like 10 years?
