Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen Model Years

Overview

Research by Year
, Automotive Editor -

Volkswagen added the SportWagen to the Jetta label in 2009, and for two years, the two models shared most features. Then in 2011, Volkswagen redesigned the Jetta sedan, but left the SportWagen alone. Since then, the two models have shared little beyond the Jetta name.

This five-passenger wagon is lighter and more fuel efficient than many compact SUV crossovers with comparable or better cargo space. The base engine for the S and SE trims is a 2.5-liter five-cylinder, but real fuel efficiency materializes in the TDI trim equipped with a 50-state-certified 2-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine.
