Volkswagen has taken off the covers of the 2015 Jetta at a ceremony in Mumbai yesterday. The new Jetta was launched at a starting price of Rs 14.15 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). The cosmetic update adds a much needed zing to the car in a very civil and sophisticated way and targets the corporates primarily.

With a price tag lower than its nearest rival and sibling Octavia, Volkswagen India hopes to maintain a 10 per cent market share in the segment.
