The revised Volkswagen Jetta is now open for orders in Europe including the right-hand car market being the UK ahead of first deliveries in December.
The new Jetta – which made its debut at the New York Auto Show in April – features revised styling front and rear, more features and greater efficiency. The Jetta’s styling has been updated to make it sleeker with an overall improvement in aerodynamics of 10 per cent. At the front, there’s a revised radiator grille with three horizontal fins, and a re-profiled bumper beneath The LED array design has been re-designed too.
At the rear the boot lid has been redesigned to incorporate an aerodynamically efficient lip, which extends into the wings at the side. Beneath this are new tail-lights and a revised bumper.
Inside, the Jetta comes with revised instruments, a new design of steering wheel, a variety of new trims around the centre console and new fabric designs for the seats and door trims. New ambient lighting in the Jetta GT gives an upmarket feel.
As well as styling revisions, the Jetta also comes with new optional assistance systems, including Blind Spot Detection with Rear Traffic Alert.
