The new Volkswagen Jetta facelift has been launched starting at Rs 13.87 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai) for the base variant. The Jetta was last updated in October 2013, when it was given more equipment and new headlamps. This new facelift is more of a cosmetic job to bring it in line with Volkswagen’s international model range.

On the outside, the headlamps are more sculpted and the bonnet is slightly redesigned. There’s a larger grille with three chrome slats instead of two, and a wider lower air dam with new fog lamps. At the rear, the lamps look more angular and there’s a subtle lip spoiler. Prominent changes on the inside include a new three-spoke, flat-bottomed steering wheel from the Vento and Polo facelifts, and a classier looking instrument cluster.

Mechanically, this facelift is unchanged. The Jetta facelift comes with the 121bhp 1.4-litre TFSI petrol engine and a 138bhp 2.0-litre TDI diesel unit. Transmission options include a six-speed manual and Volkswagen’s dual-clutch DSG automatic gearbox.

This is definitely not a comprehensive update to the German carmaker’s executive sedan, but with this subtle facelift Volkswagen intends to keep the Jetta significant in the midst of competition.
