2015 Volkswagen Jetta : Pricing and specifications

The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta has arrived in Australia wearing the lowest price tag ever attached to the compact sedan.


The updated model costs $22,790 before on-road costs in 118TSI Trendline manual guise, down $2200 compared with its predecessor.

Volkswagen has also reintroduced a sporting variant, the 155TSI Highline Sport, priced from $39,990.

The 2015 Jetta is rolling out into dealerships now, and though Volkswagen Australia is yet to officially launch the updated model or release local images (overseas model pictured here), documents seen by CarAdvice allow us to reveal pricing and specification details for the overhauled range.


The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta engine range includes two carry-over powerplants – the 118kW/240Nm 1.4-litre four-cylinder twin-charged 118TSI and the 103kW/320Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel 103TDI – and an updated version of the previously offered 147kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol, which now produces 155kW and 280Nm.

The 118TSI engine is available in Trendline, Comfortline and Highline specification levels. The entry variant continues to be offered with six-speed manual and seven-speed dual-clutch (DSG) automatic transmissions, while the top two specs come standard with the DSG.

The 103TDI and 155TSI engines come standard with six-speed DSGs.


The Jetta Trendline appears modestly specced, with equipment highlights including 16-inch alloy wheels, driver attention detection system, touchscreen display screen, and an eight-speaker audio system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity. As with the rest of the 2015 Jetta range, it gets updated exterior styling and a refreshed interior that takes inspiration from the Mk7 Golf.

For an extra $4700, the Jetta Comfortline adds a host of features headlined by 17-inch alloy wheels, auto headlights and wipers, power-folding and auto-dipping side mirrors with puddle lamps, front and rear parking sensors and a reverse-view camera, dual-zone climate control, satellite navigation, voice recognition, DVD player, in-built media hard-drive and an SD card input.

Another $4000 affords customers the Jetta Highline, which gains features such as partial leather upholstery, heated and electric front sports seats, and a proximity key with push-button start, among others.

In addition to the larger engine, the Highline Sport equipment grade adds 18-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights and active cornering lamps, LED daytime running lights, tinted LED tail-lights, tinted windows, chrome exhaust tip, and steering wheel paddleshifters.

Stay tuned for official specifications and local images, expected soon.
