When Volkswagen's home office in Wolfsburg announced the new Golf Estate a few days ago, nothing was said about plans for the U.S. market. The Golf wagon, of course, is badged as the Jetta Sportwagen in North America. According to VW of America spokesman Steve Keyes, we will indeed see this facelifted Jetta wagen this fall. Keyes tells Autoblog: "In order to simplify production, we'll make the change to our Jetta and as an added benefit, we believe the customers will appreciate the differentiation from the current sedan."
For now, the sedan will retain the big chrome grille until it gets refresh. The updated Jetta sedan will likely arrive in 2010 or '11 sporting the new corporate face.
