2014 Volkswagen Golf Variant Previews Next-Generation Jetta SportWagen

Jeff Youngs | Mar 06, 2013
When the current Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen underwent an update for the 2011 model year, it adopted the same styling as the Golf forward of the windshield, as well as the Golf's dashboard and control layout. The move reminded Americans that Jettas and Golfs are closely related, indeed sharing a vehicle platform.

It follows that the new 2014 Volkswagen Golf Variant station wagon debuting at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show provides a good look at what will be offered in the United States if Volkswagen elects to renew the Jetta SportWagen. Lighter by 232 pounds, roomier inside, and more fuel efficient, the new 2014 Golf Variant goes on sale in Europe this summer.

Details associated with the car pertain to the European market, but it is a good bet that if the Jetta SportWagen returns to the U.S. lineup, it will offer the optional 2.0-liter turbo-diesel engine. Displacing 2.0 liters and estimated to deliver about 150 horsepower and 236 lb.-ft. of torque, it would be expected to get better fuel economy than the current model, which is rated by the EPA to return 34 mpg in combined driving. In Europe, the Golf Variant TDI Clean Diesel model will be available with a 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.Additional Research
