2015 Volkswagen Jetta: At last a Jetta that VW should have built since beginning
2015 Volkswagen Jetta: At last a Jetta that VW should have built since beginning

It was fun driving the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta S along the Virginia horse country’s scenic two-lane roads aided by the TDI’s 6-speed manual. Well, fun in a Jetta, a thing that we would have never foretold when the German automaker introduced it for the model year 2011.

The car boasted the Audi-based styling, very competitive price and increased speed but was severely criticized for its absolute lack of character, persistently cheap-feeling interior, the bad-tempered 5-cylinder engine base model, a chassis from the dark ages with torsion-beam bar and rear drum brakes.

 

VW since then has improved the Jetta and made significant and incremental additions to the North American bread-winner. The Jetta destined for the US shores started featuring an independent rear suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes by 2014. The old 2.5 L was retired for a EA888 1.8 L turbo 4-cylinder.  With the mid-life update a new Jetta has taken birth and sport upgraded interior materials and front and rear styling. The new material includes a soft dash top and also a diesel engine EA288 for all TDIs. The end result of the refresh has given a conclusion that the Jetta should have been the vehicle that VW should have built all time along.
