2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen SEL 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


With all the attention on the TDI, the SEL is perhaps the most unsung bargain in the Sportwagen lineup. With the same 2.0T engine (and sporty-sounding noise pipe) as the GTI and GLI, the SEL is a blast to drive. It's loaded with leather/memory seats, dual climate control, Premium sound, Sirius radio, sporty 17-inch wheels, Highline instrument cluster, and a myriad other options not found on any other Jetta. Mine has the enormous moonroof that is actually best appreciated in the backseat due to its size. The cargo space is amazing--more room behind the rear seat than a Passat wagon. Rowing through the six-speed manual transmission and feeling the rush of acceleration is great. What a car!

Best Features

All-new 2.0T TSI engine with 200 hp; excellent 6-disc/Sirius/MP3 stereo with 10 speakers; no-nonsense blue/red dash display; quality interior; large cargo capacity; enormous moon roof; sporty styling.

Worst Features

Auto headlights; factory fog lights.
