Cool! I hope all the people that have been wanking about wanting something like this, will put their money where their mouth is.....

if it's anywhere near as nicely executed as my Passat, I would be curious to check one oot....

I'm very interested in this. The wife almost bought a diesel JSW a couple of years ago but decided it wasn't quite big enough for her. I drive a Fiesta ST now, so it would seem huge to me.

Hmm. I'm about to shell out for the 100k, 6 year VW warranty extension on my '12 manual JSW TDI, maybe I just drive it for another year under the base warranty and swap it for this. Since I live in a town with 3 ski resorts, the AWD would be useful.

bout time... I think I'd opt for the BMW and forego the manual tranny. But this is hopefully one of many of these types headed our way.

typical vw bs

from autoblog
"but as for all-wheel drive, well... that might not make the cut. A Volkswagen spokesperson told Autoblog that 4Motion is "under consideration" for the production model that'll go on sale next year, but as of this writing, the company is only planning to offer a front-drive SportWagen in our market."

THIS is what I wanted. I couldn't get it, so ended up in my second choice, Subie Outback. Took forever to find a manual for that one though. If Subie would have have offered a diesel....

Too late now though. I like my Subie a lot, and wife would KILL me if I tried to trade it for one 'o these!

It says Golf Sportwagen. Going over to the source article on MotorTrend, they say that the name of the JSW is changing. And in Germany, the JSW is known as the Golf Variant. So yeah, it'll still be the same basic car.

In 3-5 years if I'm doing well I'd be interested..... the big downside is that it likely will be 30k since the JSW is about the same cost as the Passat, then add awd and diesel premiums.

Close, but I want something even smaller - like a Golf/et. al.

Also, I have been hearing about problems with the current generation TDI engines.

I saw a Suzuki SX4 the other day - about the right size for me - AWD, manual, etc. - but no diesel in the USA, only overseas. :(

Subaru has diesels, just not in the USA.

Most foreign small car manufacturers, especially Japan and Europe, have diesel versions of many of their cars, but will not sell most of them in the USA. Even VW has more diesel versions than they sell here.

No Suzuki cars in the US at all any more. They pulled out.
