The Jetta Sportwagen replaces the trunk of the Jetta with a large cargo area accessible through a hatch. A cleanly styled interior features a simple and comfortable layout. The standard engine is a 170hp, 2.5L inline 5-cylinder engine with a 5-speed manual and optional six-speed automatic transmission. The SportWagen also offers a rare diesel engine option. The 2.0L diesel turns in impressive EPA ratings of 30 city / 41 hwy, which is hard to match in any other car with similar utility. The Jetta is in general a good value, but at the upper end of the model range, the roomier Passat becomes a very attractive alternative.

What Changed:

The 2010 Jetta SportWagen wears new front end styling. The new grille features a prominent VW logo in a new grille. The single frame design that extended in to the bumper is gone. The tail lamps and wheel designs are new too. Inside, the 2010 model has an updated instrument cluster, steering wheel and revised trim materials.
