AJAX, ON, March 5 /CNW/ - Volkswagen announced today that the new 2009
Jetta Wagon has arrived at dealerships, with a base price of $23,475.
Based on the fifth-generation Jetta, the 2009 Jetta Wagon features the
responsive 2.5 litre inline five cylinder engine that develops 170 HP and
177 lb/ft of torque. This engine is matched to either a standard five-speed
manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic transmission with
Tiptronic(TM). Despite its low price, which is $2,745 less than the starting
price of its predecessor, a high-level of standard equipment is found: air
conditioning, cruise control, electric windows, heated electric exterior
mirrors, remote-locking with anti-theft alarm, 8-speaker MP3-readable CD
player with auxiliary input jack, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, 8-way
adjustable front seats with safety optimized headrests, front and side
airbags, 16 inch wheels, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, traction control,
and a full-size spare tire. In addition to the vast list of safety features,
are optional Electronic Stabilization Programme, front and rear side curtain
airbags, and rear side airbags.
The 2009 Jetta Wagon benefits from its laser-welding production process,
class-leading fit and finish, tremendous body strength, crash protection,
driving dynamics, and low interior noise. Drivers of the Jetta Wagon benefit
from its fully independent suspension system that uses a multi-link rear and
optimized front strut setup, as well as an electro-mechanical steering system.
The vehicle's roofline is enhanced by a standard roof railing, which is
exclusive to this model. In addition, the 2009 Jetta Wagon can receive an
optional panoramic sunroof. With this large sunroof, occupants of both the
front and rear seating areas will benefit from a light-filled ambiance. The
roof consists of two halves, the front section of which can be raised as well
as completely opened. To preserve full interior height, the opening segment is
driven out above the closed section of roof. An electrically-powered sunshade
can be used when less sunlight is desired. Its spacious trunk area can
accommodate 66.9 cubic feet of cargo with its 60/40 rear seats folded. Even
with its rear seat up, the Jetta Wagon offers a surprising 32.8 cubic feet of
