2010 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen
Volkswagen Press Release
The Jetta and Jetta SportWagen have always appealed to drivers seeking German engineering in a versatile, stylish, and fun-to-drive package. With starting prices of USD$17,605 for the Jetta and USD$19,265 for the Jetta SportWagen, affordability remains another important trait of the 2010 Jetta lineup.
The fuel-sipping 2010 Jetta TDI model once again features the critically acclaimed 2.0-liter clean diesel TDI engine – the same engine that powered a Jetta to a Guinness World Record for Lowest Fuel Consumption, and has placed clean diesel, the most efficient alternative fuel readily available in all 50 states, in the spotlight. In TDI trim, the Jetta sedan and SportWagen can achieve 30 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway (EPA estimates when equipped with DSG automatic transmission). Adding even more credibility, the Jetta TDI which starts at USD$22,660, achieved even greater fuel economy returns when tested in real world conditions by third-party certifier, AMCI: A staggering 38 mpg for city driving and 44 mpg for highway travel. The Jetta SportWagen TDI starts at USD$24,310.
Beyond cutting back on costs at the fuel pump, the Jetta TDI sedan and SportWagen are also eligible for a USD$1,300 U.S. Federal Income Tax Credit through their qualification for the Advanced Lean Burn Technology Motor Vehicle Federal Income Tax Credit.
