I have now had my TDI Sportwagen for one and half months. I have 6500 miles and average about 38 mpgs overall. I keep a fully loaded car for sales promotion items from the back of the front seats to the back door and getting an average of 38mpgs. I can't imagine what I would get with a car that did not have a heavy load daily. It is very sporty, handles well and I am very pleased. I would recommend that you give this car a drive if looking for an economical option to the SUV. I am still saving about 30-40 dollars a month on gas even though there is a 80 cent spread between unleaded regular and diesel.
Sirius Radio, Great Gas Mileage, Small car with Great Room to haul stuff. Fold Flat Rear seats. Sunroof.
Multifunction Steering Wheel Standard on all TDI's. Bluetooth handsfree standard. Power Driver Seat! Power Lift Gate...a personal convenience Key would be a great option as well.
