The 2010 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen receives a revised front end (borrowed from the new Golf), an upgraded interior including a new instrument cluster, air conditioning controls, and a host of new features. SE and TDI trims feature Bluetooth phone connectivity as standard equipment, while the base S trim gains a 60/40 split rear seat with center armrest passthrough. The turbocharged SEL trim is no longer available.
While most auto makers have abandoned their station wagon variants, Volkswagen is plunging head-first into the market with the all-new Jetta SportWagen. Given the daily fluctuation in gasoline prices, coupled with a growing consumer desire to move out of big, gas-thirsty SUVs, VW's timing couldn't be better. Beyond its reasonable price and roomy interior, the SportWagen's most appealing lure can be found under the hood, where three engine choices, including a 2.0-liter diesel – reportedly capable of returning better highway mileage than the current EPA estimate – reside. VW says the diesel model will make up 50 percent of SportWagen sales, with a low-cost five-cylinder and potent turbo four-cylinder comprising the remainder of the expected 14,000-unit sales.
