2015 Volkswagen Jetta

Volkswagen brings a much-improved Jetta for 2015 to the New York Auto Show this week. The newest iteration of VW’s successful sedan will make its global debut with functional and esthetic changes.

Reduced drag and new lower-roller-resistance tires make it more efficient than ever, and an assortment of new nanny techs such as Blind Spot Detection, frontal collision warning and rear cross-traffic alert make it smarter. It gets an upgraded interior with new materials.

The same three four-cylinder gas engines include a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated and 1.8 and 2.0-litre turbos. There will also be a 1.4-litre turbo hybrid and a new 2.0-litre turbo TDI clean diesel available.

A redesigned grille, optional Bi-Xenon headlights and a new bumper switch up the view from the front. From behind, the discerning will note updated trunk lid, taillights, logo and bumper.

The New York Auto Show opens to the public today.
