VW has unveiled the 2014 VW Golf Variant, which is basically a wagon version of the Golf, which we should get here in the US as the Jetta SportWagen. Like the new Golf hatchback, the Variant is significantly lighter than its predecessor by 232 pounds.
VW has also announced that for the first time the Golf Variant will be offered as a stand-alone TDI BlueMotion model in Europe. The 110-horsepower Variant is the most fuel-efficient Volkswagen wagon ever, with an EC combined fuel economy figure of 71.3 mpg (equivalent to 87 g/km CO2) when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission.
The all-wheel-drive Golf Variant 4Motion will also debut in Geneva. It will be available as a TDI Clean Diesel model with 105- and 150-hp engines. Volkswagen is also planning a Golf Estate TGI BlueMotion with natural gas drive (CNG).
There's no word yet when the Golf Variant/ Jetta SportWagen will be offered in the US.
