Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen coming in USA in 2008
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.
