The 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen is a very rare car in the United States. Not only is it a small wagon, but it can also be purchased with a 150 HP diesel engine. It is so rare and unusual that no other car in this same small car segment comes is both a wagon and turbo-diesel configuration.

The 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen replaces the Jetta wagon as Volkswagen’s small people hauler. Unlike the highly popular crossovers like the Jeep Cherokee that compete with the 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen, this Golf wagon does not currently offer an all-wheel-drive option in the United States, however what it lacks in AWD it makes up for in MPG. The EPA rates the 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen TDI at an astonishing 45 MPG on the highway.

This is one  rare wagon that sips fuel and still has room for 5 adults and much of their stuff.

The 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen can also be purchase with a much more traditional gasoline TSI engine but VW says that 80 percent of their customers will opt for the torque, and MPG’s of the TDI diesel.

Recently Roman Mica had the chance to drive and review the new 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen TDI in Austin, Texas. After spending a morning behind the wheel of this new VW Roman filed this video First Drive Review.
