The 2015 VW Golf SportWagen gets a little bigger on the outside but sheds weight and offers new standard features. Prices start at $21,395* for the base model with the 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and five-speed manual or $24,595 for the least expensive TDI model.
UPDATE: An earlier version of this story indicated that pre-orders were already open for this model, but Volkswagen points out that they will only begin at a later date still to be determined. The text below has been updated accordingly.
UPDATE: Comparing the disparate specification levels on commercial vehicles especially can be bewildering, but as Ram spokesman Nick Cappa points out, the ProMaster City is only offered in long-wheelbase form (unlike the Ford Transit Connect, for example, that starts in short-wheelbase spec). Just which model is the better bargain, then, is up to each customer to decide.
The Chevrolet Trax is the slightly more meat-and-potatoes cousin to the Buick Encore, with the same platform and engine underneath but a touch less luxury. The little compact crossover is on its way to US dealers in January 2015, and Chevy is finally announcing the base price for this runabout CUV at $20,120 (*plus $875 for destination) when it goes on sale. That's around $4,000 less than a starter Encore before its destination fee.
