That looks staggeringly good, too bad about not having the actual R mill in it.

Well seeing as how no Sportwagen has never come with a 2.0T, that would involve an engine swap...pretty involved. But it's a chipped TDI so it's probably pretty grunty anyway. A Jetta Sportwagen TDI R?

Yeah, come to think of it, my real problem is with the drivetrain. It's still FWD, especially with all that torque.

Gotta admit, this car is pretty hot.

The Jetta SportWagen was one of the few I wasn't so keen on. This certainly changes that.
