At Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen unveiled the Jetta Sportwagen (Golf Variant for the European market). The Jetta SportWagen will arrive in the U.S. around September as a 2008 model, with the same base engine as the Jetta sedan — an inline-five-cylinder and the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder. A diesel version will probably go on sale alongside the Jetta TDI sedan in 2008.
Debuting in a world premiere is the third generation of the Jetta Sportwagen, with more than 1.2 million units built since 1993. As a TDI with 103 hp it consumes just 5.2 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers (CO2 = 137 g/km). The cargo space of the new Golf Variant is 1,550 liters. The first cars will be delivered in early summer. Engine power ranges from 100 hp to 138 hp.
