2011 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen won’t use 2011 Jetta sedan platform

A few weeks ago, the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta sedan was revealed, boasting an upgraded design, increased size, an all-new platform and the promise to take on other mid-size models on the tough US market.

Now, as a blow to those who want a bit more practicality, Volkswagen has revealed that the 2011 Jetta SportWagen version won’t use the new platform. Instead, it will continue to sport the Golf mk V underpinnings, meaning it will keep its exterior dimensions largely the same.

Volkswagen admitted that it will make some interior changes, as well as bring in a few styling cues from the 2011 Jetta sedan. Except that though, don’t expect any other changes in terms of engines or other such things.

The Jetta SportWagen will continue to be made in Germany, while the 2011 Jetta sedan will be brought in from VW’s Mexico plant.

    That’s great news. The new Jetta has taken about two steps back in both design and finish.

    I don’t really like anything from VW, aside Scirocco and Pasat CC. Maybe they use the design from one of those :) VW Sciretta :D
