2015 Volkswagen Jetta Brings New 2.0L TDI To New York Debut

2015 Volkswagen Jetta Front

The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta made its New York Auto Show debut with a minor facelift, updated interior, and a new 2.0L TDI engine.

There will be plenty of engine variants on the new 2015 Volkswagen Jetta starting with three four-cylinder gasoline engines. The choices there include a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated, and either a 1.8T or 2.0T TSI. A 1.4-liter turbocharged full hybrid version will also be available as well as a 2.0-liter turbocharged TDI Clean Diesel engine.

Volkswagen has worked to make that 2.0L turbocharged diesel as efficient as possible and it already conforms to LEV3 emission standards in the US. This latest generation TDI is about eight percent more efficient than its predecessor with manufacturer-estimated fuel efficiency of 32 city/45 highway for a manual transmission with a combined rating around 37 MPG. It’ll deliver 150 horsepower with 236 lb-ft of torque.

Design changes on the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta include new headlights, front bumper and grille and in the back a new trunk lid, tail lights, rear bumper, and logos. They’re all subtle changes but ones that had a net positive affect on the vehicle’s aerodynamics.

The interior features improved trims with chrome accents and a new multifunction steering wheel as well as plenty of new available technology. Blind Spot Detection plus rear cross-traffic alert and frontal collision warning, Bi-Xenon headlights with Adaptive Front-lighting System, turn signal, and LED Daytime Running Lights are all part of the new 2015 Volkswagen Jetta.
