Visit Volkswagen for more information on the Volkswagen Jetta Wagon.

Anything that can be said about the Jetta, can be said about the 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Wagon and more. The Jetta Wagon is a 4-door, 5-passenger wagon, available in a multitude of engine/trim combinations. There's a model of wagon out there for just about anyone.

Available Models
Three trims avail the 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Wagon: GL, GLS, and GLX. With these trims comes the task of choosing one of three great Volkswagen engines.

Interior Features
More power to you: Air conditioning, cruise control, rear defogger, keyless entry/unlock, power locks, power mirrors, power steering, power windows, AM/FM radio cassette & CD player, folding rear seat for maximizing cargo space, tachometer, and tilt steering wheel. Package upgrades to the GLS or GLX can include power sunroof, heatable front seats, heatable leather-trimmed front seats with lumbar support, leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic climate control, Monsoon sound system, automatic day/night rear-view mirror, and outside-temperature indicator.

Exterior Features
Standard exterior features on the 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Wagon include heated driver and passenger side remote mirrors, clear lens halogen headlamps, and intermittent rear wiper washer. Upgrades on the exterior can include alloy wheels, fog lights, heated windshield washer nozzles, and rain-sensing wipers.

A few engines are available with the 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Wagon; the first is a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder model capable of 115 horsepower and 122 lb-ft of torque while the second is a 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder motor with 180 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque.

The top-level wagon TDI are designed for maximum efficiency. Equipped with 1.9-liter, in-line, turbo-charged direct injection 4-cylinder diesel engine, they generate 90 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque.

The TDI engine provides tremendous fuel economy: 42/49 mpg (city/hwy) for manuals, 34/45 mpg (city/hwy) for automatics. Available transmissions include a 5-speed manual, optional adaptive 4-speed automatic, or optional 5-speed automatic with Tiptronic (on the 1.8T).

Safety and Security
Safety is Volkswagen's self-proclaimed most important standard feature, and no exception with the Jetta Wagon. Take for instance an anti-theft alarm system, an immobilizer that prevents the Jetta from being started up if an unauthorized key is used and an electronic stabilization program for better handling and control.
Further down the list of standard safety features are the dual front and front side impact airbags, anti-intrusion side door beams, and a collapsible upon impact steering column. You can also opt for side curtain protection airbags that extend down the roofline to help minimize head and upper torso injury. Four-wheel ABS power assisted, vented front discs with solid rear discs give you braking security.
