Engine options likely to remain unchanged. 

VW India have started testing the 2015 Jetta facelift ahead of a market launch expected next year. Unveiled first at the New York International Auto Show in April this year, the Jetta gets mild cosmetic revisions.

The rectangular foglights are the major giveaway at the front.

The front sees a redesigned grille and a mildly tweaked bumper with rectangular foglights; the current Jetta sports circular foglights. Towards the rear, the refreshed Jetta gets redesigned taillights which look a lot similar to that of the current Audi A4's. The rear bumper also gets new reflector elements.

The Jetta gets the flat-bottomed steering wheel like the Polo and Vento.

Inside, VW's new 3-spoke flat-bottomed steering wheel (also seen on the new Polo and Vento), a touchscreen infotainment system (which could also feature navigation) and possibly minor changes to the trim and upholstery will distinguish the Jetta facelift from the outgoing model.

The engine options, which in India include a 1.4-liter TSI unit and a 2.0-liter diesel, would carry on unchanged.

In October last year, VW India introduced a minor facelift for the Jetta which saw new LED daytime running lights, Xenon headlights with headlight washers and a new alloy wheel pattern being added to the sedan. Compared to this, the oncoming facelift is a bit more comprehensive.
