2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen S PZEV 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


I am really very impressed by the features and value of the base model Sportwagen S.
If you are looking for an upscale interior and a large cargo area, there really isn't another vehicle that compares.
It is comfortable to sit in, drives very well, and comes equipped with virtually all the features one would look for in a daily driver.

Best Features

Standard: Heated seats, mirrors, and wiper nozzles. Power everything, 8 speaker stereo, huge cargo area, decent acceleration, good handling.

Worst Features

The SE model is not as appealing to me. The seats do not feel like leather, they are hard and you can tell they are vinyl. The upgraded stereo is nice, and so are the wheels, but it just does not seem like a nice enough package to warrant the upgrade $$. Also, I test drove a couple of these, and they all have a very strange, almost delayed throttle response with the automatic. Edmunds also noted this. No USB port?

If your car came with a cable for an iphone you simply replace it with a USB version. Have no clue why they went with the iphone cable when there are far more android phones out there. When you replace the cable you have a choice mini-b-usb which will plug into the phone or the larger female usb that accepts all usb cables.
