2015 VW Jetta Rejuvenated for NY Auto Show Debut

The changes might be subtle, but the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta has been revealed ahead of its New York Auto Show global debut.

The mild refresh on the Jetta sedan includes fancier, more upscale bi-xenon lightning with new LED daytime running lights and an adaptive front lighting system that follows the steering wheel angle. In addition, the German automaker has added a collection of new tech features including blind spot detection, front collision warning, rear cross traffic alert and parking assist. For powerplant options, the 2015 Jetta will introduce a new-generation advanced diesel engine: a 2.0-liter with 150 hp and should see up to 45 mpg on the highway, a 10-hp improvement over the previous diesel engine and three MPG more efficient on the highway.

Though the other engines will carry over, Volkswagen expects fuel efficiency to be slightly improved through better aerodynamics and tire resistance improvements. Those carry over powerplants include a 2.0-liter gasoline four-cylinder engine, a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 1.4-liter turbo-hybrid powertrain. Certain models in the 2015 Jetta lineup will also get active grille shutters and special spoilers.

On the inside, trim upgrades and new materials have been added to give the Jetta a more upscale feel. Check back for more information on the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta when it arrives the show floor at the New York Auto Show this week.
