2015 VW Golf Sportwagen





Stuff we ARE getting: The new Sportwagen.

Except now, as it should be, it will finally be called Golf. Not Jetta.
Which is what it is, a Golf Wagon. Just like the current one.
Now no one will have to explain why this Jetta wagon has a Golf interior.
(So it looks like VW has bigger plans for the Golf in the US for the new generation.)

We will be getting it after the Golf comes out in April. Standard engine will be the new 1.8 Liter Turbo.
And a new version of the familiar 2.0 Liter Diesel, now with 150hp, will be an option.

A classic looking wagon. Which actually could age very well...

I can't figure out why VW doesn't just put a normal sunroof in this thing. Im not sure Americans are sold on the idea of the 'entire roof = glass' $3k sunroof package.

Funky colors.
But are people going to buy anything other than black or grey?

The official name won't be Jetta Sportwagen, nor will it be Golf Sportwagen. VW has confirmed it will simply be the VW Sportwagen.

the panoramic sunroof is one of the major reasons to buy this car....it gives a feel that the interior is bigger...i have this car and its amazing....i would recommend only adding things at this point - not taking anything away
