Despite the Jetta nameplate, the SportWagen has the look of a stretched Golf more so than it does a wagon version of the popular small sedan. This is more than just appearance as well; the underpinnings of the car come from the previous generation of the Jetta, and therefore it shares a platform with the current Golf. But the Golf is the better car in the eyes of enthusiasts, so perhaps this is a good thing. The Jetta SportWagen is the most cost-effective way to get a European-flavored wagon in the US, and is the very best solution for someone with a family who still wants to enjoy driving.
