A refreshed version of the Volkswagen Jetta has been officially presented to the public during the 2014 New York Auto Show.
Volkswagen has been announcing a refreshed version of the Jetta for the 2014 New York Auto Show for quite some time now and the model has been finally presented to the public attending the automotive event in the Big Apple. The model in question has slightly updated lighting units, some minor aerodynamic tweaks, a new driver assistance technology, a multifunction color display, some chrome trim and other tweaks which should keep it competitive until a new generation of the model will be making its way onto the market.
“On top of being Volkswagen of America’s number one-selling car for decades, the Jetta is one of the world’s most successful sedans with more than 14 million units sold since 1979. Now, at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, Volkswagen is presenting the world premiere of the redesigned 2015 Jetta sedan”, as the company is saying in its official press release.
The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta has a new 2.0 liter TDI four-cylinder diesel engine under its hood, which is rated at 150 HP and 236 lb-ft of torque. Along with the six-speed manual transmission, this version can achieve up to 45 mpg US on the highway. The rest of the Jetta range will still be powered by the 1.8 liter and by the 2.0 liter turbocharged engines, while the Hybrid and the GLI variants will carry over with LED headlights.
