The front features a new radiator grille and a re-profiled bumper, where the rear incorporates an aerodynamically efficient lip, which extends into the wings at the side, a new bumper design and tail lights.
The interior sees new instrumentation, steering wheel and a selection of new trims – with the Jetta GT featuring new ambient lighting.
