VW did down size the battery of the '15 TDIs compared to 09-14 TDI.

Heres a good write up that applies to a TSI going for a larger battery, it applies to the GSW TDI as well.

Moral of the story, the battery bracket can be moved and larger series "096" battery can fit. Dealer won't be much help with getting you the larger battery unless you call out the specific part number of an '09-'14 TDI battery.
