The new 2015 Jetta sedan is set to make its world debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show. The vehicle gets new styling touches at the front and rear of the car. Overall efficiency has been enhanced by reducing air drag and utilizing new tires that help improve rolling resistance. The new Jetta is expected to go on sale in US by the third quarter of 2014.
The front fascia of the new Jetta gets redesigned radiator grille with three cross fins, optional Bi-Xenon headlights with Adaptive Front-lighting System, and a new bumper. The Bi-Xenon headlights have an especially distinctive design: Each daytime running light is formed by 15 LEDs arranged in an L-shaped string alongside and beneath the xenon modules, creating an unmistakable light signature, day and night. A chrome element between the LED daytime running lights and the xenons accentuates the headlights.
At the back, the 2015 Jetta has updated trunk-lid, taillights, rear logos and bumper. The trunk-lid has an aerodynamic trailing edge, and on the sides the lines of this integrated spoiler extend into the rear fenders. Beneath this are new available LED taillights which feature a bright stripe, as well as a redesigned VW logo.
Inside the cabin, the Volkswagen Jetta gets minimal changes which includes new instrument panel, new multi-functional steering wheel, redesigned air vent controls, piano black accents on the center console and around the gear shift level, new chrome accents around dual-zone climatronic control and new seat covers.
The sedan also gets some advanced safety and driver assistance features such as Blind Spot Detection plus rear cross traffic alert and front collision warning, as well as Bi-Xenon headlights with Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), turn signal, and LED Daytime Running Lights.
The new Jette will continue to get power from the naturally aspirated 2.0-litre, the 1.8-litre, the 2.0-litre turbo, and the hybrid 1.4-litre turbo charged engine. The 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine is claimed to offer 10bhp more power than the previous model, while the fuel economy has also increased to 19.13kmpl from current 17.85kmpl. The model is likely to make its India debut by the next year.
