Excellent Family Car — We have this car for 2 yrs and we love it. They improve the heating so on cold days the car gets warmer fast. Cargo space is good. Gas consumption average 7.7 this last cold winter on mostly city driving. We have the model with panoramic sunroof (as if the driver looks at the stars when driving) and you can hear high the noise from the roof box(if mounted). I find annoying the maintenance schedule for DSG transmission, every 60k and is not cheap, so go with the manual transmission. We have 2 kids and we can carry lots of things :). Handling is great and controls are nicely organized. Good acceleration when required and even at high speed the engine is responsive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good cargo space, nice handling and good power.

Cons: passenger space inside could have beed better used. Noisy with a box on top.

2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI FWD Review
Frederick says:
After circa 5 years - 50,000 miles - I chose VWs buyback. I did this with more than a small amount of remorse. The range, torque and capacity of this very fuel efficient - Fuelly 50k average 44.1 - wagon is sorely missed. However, one should obey the law (even if some laws are poorly crafted).

2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI FWD with Sunroof Review
Evo says:
The best car I have ever owned. Power of the TDI is addictive. MPG is much higher than the numbers on the window sticker. Trunk size is impressive. Its a shame that VW is buying them back and smashing them. This car will be missed by the enthusiasts out there.

Handling Ranked 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Sedan FWD worse.
"Suspension is superior to that found in the Cruze. The TDI was built with a lot of GTI components such as sway bars, brakes and independent rear suspension. It also shares the floor and chassis of the GTI. Its the perfect family hauler. "
Family Car Ranked 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Sedan FWD worse.
"Larger rear seats and trunk area. The panoramic sunroof makes the driving experiance unforgettable. "
