The brochure provides a sneak peak into the 2015 Jetta's features and technical specifications.
The German automajor has already commenced the media drives of the Jetta facelift in the country. 2015 Volkswagen Jetta bears subtle cosmetic changes both outside and inside; however, there are no mechanical changes reported. The front and rear fascia of the updated sedan resemble to the Euro/American models. The front fascia flaunts a newly designed triple slat chrome grille, revised foglamp in-housings, and redesigned bumper. At the rear end, there is a new tail-lamp cluster. Everything else, at the outside, is retained from the ongoing model. Inside the cabin, the Jetta facelift gets a new flat-bottomed three-spoke steering wheel and a new 6-CD changer music system with 8 speakers, which makes it more premium than the predecessor.
Mechanically, new Volkswagen Jetta is untouched and it would be powered by the same set of petrol and diesel engines, without any tweaks in the power or fuel efficiency. The petrol variant would come loaded with a 1.4L, 4-cylinder TSI petrol engine which would generate a maximum power of 120bhp and peak torque of 200 Nm. On the other hand, the diesel variants would in-house the same 2.0L, 4-cylinder TDI mill which is good enough for 138 bhp of top power and 320Nm of highest torque. The engine would be combined to a 6-speed manual transmission, while a 6-speed DSG gearbox is also available with diesel guise. The Jetta facelift would be available in two variants - Trendline and Comfortline - in both petrol and diesel guise. However, the diesel would have an additional top-end Highline trim with both manual as well as automatic gearboxes. Just like the current model, new Jetta would also be assembled at Aurangabad production facility of the company.
