The Jetta SportWagon

VW has unveiled it's new Jetta SportWagen, a sporty and dynamic wagon version of the sedan, at the New York Motor Show.

The Jetta SportWagen is only destined for the American market. It is basically a rebadged version of the Golf Variant, which recently went on sale in Europe.

The SportWagon will be offered with three engine variations: an upgraded 2.5-liter, five cylinder engine that now produces 125kW, the 147kW 2.0-litre turbo engine and a 2.0 TDI.

According to VW the car is quite practical too, with several seating arrangements available. For example for those whose active lifestyle requires even more room, there is an optional fold-flat front passenger seat that provides additional cargo space.

Available as an option on the Jetta SportWagen is a panoramic sunroof too.
