Check out the face lifted 2015 Volkswagen Jetta to debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show next week.  The new details for 2015 are not easy to spot for a casual eye.  The updated Jetta has new headlights, front bumper, and lower grille.  The rear also get a reshaped trunk lid, new tail light design, and rear bumper.  The overall appearance is conservative and keeps very close to the existing design.

Aerodynamics have been further improved and the 1.8T and 2.0 TDI model get dynamic radiator shutters to increase highway efficiency.  The engine lineup remains the same.  You can still choose between five engine options: regular 2.0L, 1.8T, 2.0T, 2.0 TDI, and 1.4T Hybrid.  The 2.0 liter TDI is the new EA288 model (150 hp and 236 lb-ft) and Volkswagen estimates 45 MPG on the highway to the new Jetta TDI.


The car also gets several new touches on the interior with chrome accents and multi-color center gauge information screen.  The updated Jetta will have a host of latest safety and driver assistance technologies.  This includes blind sport detection, rear cross-traffic alert, front collision warning, adaptive front-lighting system, and more.

Expect the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta to arrive in dealerships in the third quarter of 2014.
