Review — 2009 Jetta SportWagen

The new Jetta has a familiar face but an unfamiliar I expected the taillights to use the same motif found in the Jetta but the SportWagen’s back end looks like my ’96 Honda than anything else.

Pricing starts at $17,649 for the Jetta S, which includes power everything and lots of gear, including electronic control. I tested the $21,999 SE; options — including a sunroof ($1300) and the world’s navigation system ($1800) brought the price to nearly

Until more introduce small wagons, the SportWagen is as good as it’s to get. — Aaron
