Volkswagen of America, Inc. previewed the forthcoming Jetta SportWagen at the American Station Wagon Owners Association's (ASWOA) national convention held July 27-29 in Archbold, Ohio. The SportWagen, scheduled for public introduction in March 2008, was the centerpiece of a display showcasing Volkswagen's long-term commitment to the station wagon body style.
"We're delighted that Volkswagen participated in our national gathering," said Tim Cleary, ASWOA President. "It is nice to see the station wagon receive the continued commitment that Volkswagen has shown throughout the years."
Volkswagen had a display featuring station wagons from throughout the years: a 1973 Type III Squareback, 1980 Dasher, 1987 Quantum Syncro and a 1988 Fox. In addition, ASWOA members were also invited to test drive a 2.0 T and 3.6L Passat wagon.
