Default VW says AWD SportWagen coming in 2016

VW says AWD SportWagen coming in 2016

Quote:
LOS ANGELES -- Volkswagen U.S. CEO Michael Horn disclosed that VW finally will offer an all-wheel drive version of SportWagen in the U.S.

Called the Golf SportWagen Alltrack, it's not due until 2016 as a 2017 model, Horn said. It's raised about two inches higher than the conventional SportWagen for better ground clearance in challenging terrain, and to give it the kind of ready-for-anything that buyers of all-wheel-drive vehicles often favor.
Quote:
VW says it'll begin selling the SportWagen next April with VW's popular diesel as the base engine. The diesel already is bought by about 80% of SportWagen customers, but declaring a diesel to be standard equipment in the U.S. is bold, and unique outside the world of heavy trucks.

I wonder:

1. If this drivetrain has passed EPA emissions testing; and

2. What sort of milage we can expect

Any guesses?

So if the diesel will be the base engine, does that mean VW will charge a premium for the gasser?

Most AWD vehicles see a 5-10% loss in mpg because of the extra gearing and weight. If the Jetta with the new engine is rated at 45, an AWD version of the GSW could come in around 40. That's about what I am getting now in my 10 JSW. My main interest would be the higher ground clearance to make getting in and out easier.

I'm in. I will put down a deposit as soon as they let me. Might even keep the Subaru for around town, just put the other 10-15 k highway miles/year on the VW.

THANK YOU VW!

(Ok, for real? I will believe when I'm driving one. We've been here before...)

This might suggest that the SW will have a more normal size fuel capacity and IRS vs Golf TDI.

Dodge now has the ECODiesel (a prior VW name), and VW has AllTrack (a prior Toyota name). How lovely.

Perhaps I'm a spoil sport, but I'll believe this when I see it in the showroom. It does make sense though, many other manf's are doing well selling 4wd vehicles.

I wonder if it will be 4 motion or quattro drivetrain? I will be very interested in a quattro setup. Less interesed in a 4 motion.

Very cool. I would prefer a Passat wagon version. That's why I paid to have one made

Not sure what you're talking about - Torsen vs. Haldex? Both have been sold under both names.

This car would have a Haldex based system.

I remember when the concept "Sportwagen" was introduced as an AWD with VR6 years ago. We never saw it. I'll believe this new "AWD Sportwagen" when I see it.

Ugh. 2017. We'll all be taking the unicorn-powered Cross-Country TGV before VW gives us a manual diesel awd wagon. Also note, no mention of manual...

I was also wondering if their initial diesel AWD would be a Tiguan before a Sportwagen. Possibly even an A3 Quattro with diesel. Looks like they've decided to compete, of sorts, with the 328xd wagon. I'll be interested when I see them in the showroom.

Either way, my wife will finally have a TDI on her list. She ended up with a CRV after asking about TDI Tiguan at the VW showroom.
