Review: 2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagon

CNET Car Tech reviews the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagon.

The small wagon, one of the most practical body styles, is back with the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagon. The small wagon mostly gave way to the more sporty hatchbacks in the 1990s, but Volkswagen seems confident in the body style, launching the wagon version of its Jetta sedan. There isn't much difference between the Jetta sedan and the Jetta SportWagon when it comes to the drive train or cabin electronics, which is really too bad. We were hoping for Volkswagen's next-generation navigation system, which we saw in the Passat CC at the 2008 Detroit auto show. And the name SportWagon is a little misleading, as the car doesn't offer what we would consider an exciting driving experience.
