2015 Volkswagen Jetta to be launched in India early next year

2015 Volkswagen Jetta to be launched in India early next year

Volkswagen recently revealed the updated 2015 Jetta at the 2014 New York Auto Show. One of Volkswagen group’s bestselling global sedans, the Jetta has been given a mid-cycle refresh with mild cosmetic updates and revised engines. Now, according to the latest reports, the new Jetta is expected to hit our shores around early next year.

In pursuit of extracting maximum efficiency and lowering the emissions, Volkswagen has not only tweaked the engines, but also played with the aerodynamics of the car. Volkswagen has cleaned up the Jetta’s profile to reduce the air drag, which in turn will improve the efficiency. The new tyres have been designed to help improve rolling resistance.

The front end gets a new grille and a new bumper with a larger air intake, while the rear end gets redesigned tail lamps and bumper. The car also gets optional Bi-xenon headlamps and LED daytime running lights. Inside, the car has been equipped with a new multifunction display, new steering wheel design and reorganised climate and audio controls. The upholstery will be offered with more colour options.

Volkswagen claims that the car has been given a few structural changes to improve safety. The Jetta also gets optional safety features like blind-spot monitors, forward-collision warning systems and adaptive headlights. Globally, the Jetta will be offered with four petrol engines with one hybrid option. A new revised turbocharged diesel engine has also joined the ranks. 

The Jetta was first brought to India in 2008, though Volkswagen hasn’t been able to emulate the car’s global success here. While the Jetta ticks all the right boxes in build quality and refinement, the car with its sedated and conservative styling, has always lacked style and flair. Volkswagen has improved the new car with better efficiency and more safety features, though we doubt that this will be enough to attract the Indian customer, due to the variety of lucrative options available in this price range. The Jetta competes with other D-Segment cars like Hyundai Elantra, Skoda Octavia, Chevrolet Cruze, Toyota Corolla Altis and the Renault Fluence.
