    Volkswagen Readies A Refresh For The Jetta, Jetta Wagon To Become Golf Wagon

    • With a new Golf on the way, Volkswagen decides to refresh the Jetta. Plus, changes for the Jetta Wagon.

    With the new Golf coming to the U.S. later this year, Volkswagen decided it would be a good time to give the Jetta a bit of a refresh. Vinay Shahani, Volkswagen's vice president of marketing tells Autoblog that the company is planning a refreshed Jetta that will arrive later this year. Expect subtle tweaks to the exterior and interior, and maybe some new features.

    Shahani also revealed that the next-generation Jetta SportWagen would be arriving early, however it will not have the Jetta nameplate. When the model arrives, it will be wearing the Golf nameplate. Shahani explained that ays this will better position a "Golf family" of vehicles. It makes sense considering the new Golf SportWagen looks more like a Golf than the current Jetta. However we can't help but wonder if this name change will present a big challenge for Volkswagen since the current model has proven to be a big success.

    Drew I've found V Dubb loyalist to be manufacturer based rather than model(brand) based. Many a Rabbit owners went to Sirocco then to Golf. It's a VW thing we wouldn't understand :duck:
