Default VW Will Bring An AWD Manual Diesel Wagon To America

MotorTrend reports the AWD diesel wagon is only going to be a 'concept,' but a concept in name only. This is a production-ready car, with either a 170hp/184 lb-ft turbo 1.8 liter gasoline motor or a 150hp 2.0 liter turbo diesel motor. The official transmissions, MT reports, will be the DSG six-speed and the company's six-speed manual.

I have no interest in an AWD vehicle but am curious about the price. I would expect the list p rice will be around $32,500; $33,500 w/DSG. Probably the first ones available will have all the options, so MSRP could be higher.

I'm digging the new steering wheel and the new radio/nav head unit! The only competition it has is what the much more expensive bmw 328d?

Pretty cool. Some climates need an AWD, better than buying an SUV.

Fine as long as it doesn't replace the FWD version or jack the height to high on it.

If they keep the price fairly competitive with the Outback they will sell a bunch of them. Problem is I don't think I could ever talk Wife out of her Outback ... she loves that thing.

I have no interest in anything but a wagon. Sedans are too limited in function and CUVs are like a Swiss army knife: made for multiple purposes, but performing non at a high level.

Default 2015 VW Golf TDI SportWagen Concept: New York Auto Show Debut

http://www.greencarreports.com/news/...uto-show-debut
What VW is calling the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen will be an additional model in the all-new 2015 Volkswagen Golf and GTI range, though the company calls the car it will show in New York technically a concept.

But it's the same Golf wagon that's been on sale in Europe for more than a year now, and that requires a bit of explanation.

Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Concept - 2014 New York Auto ShowVolkswagen Golf SportWagen Concept - 2014 New York Auto Show
U.S. buyers prefer sedans over hatchbacks, which is why we purchase many more Jetta compact sedans than Golf hatchbacks.

So Volkswagen has always sold the SportWagen model--which is a Golf wagon outside North America--as a Jetta model in the U.S.

Now, it appears, VW wants to standardize its global model range, so the all-new wagon based on the seventh generation of the Golf will now be dubbed a Golf here too.

The New York "concept" Golf SportWagen will show off not only an all-new 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine but also VW's 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.

The new wagon, Volkswagen says, is lighter, more powerful, and more fuel-efficient than the outgoing Jetta SportWagen.

Specifically, it's 1.1 inches longer, 0.7 inches wider, and despite 0.4 inches of increase headroom front and rear, almost an inch lower.

On the Euro Golf TDI wagon (made in Mexico too), the 4motion, manual transmission version costs less than the DSG, front wheel drive version.

Default 4motion Mk7 Golf Wagon?

Title says it all, almost. It's still a "concept" but the authors think it's going to happen:
VW Will Bring An AWD Manual Diesel Wagon To America

It's the holy grail, friends. Volkswagen is bringing a Golf Sportwagen TDI 4Motion to the New York Auto Show. AWD. Manual. Diesel. Wagon.

The 328d (F30) is automatic (ZF8) only. No manual option is available for the new diesel BMWs in the USA.

I'd go for the AWD if it were a few inches higher ground clearance. I hate dragging my hitch. Would also help the trailer have a more level stance.
