2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen TDI Review – Video

Volkswagen says it is really onto something with its new MQB platform and believes other carmakers will emulate its ingenuity. It can be lengthened, raised, accommodate front or all-wheel-drive. The Audi A3 also utilizes it, as do other models outside the U.S. The architecture does however dictate a fixed relationship between the front wheel centerline and pedals, so proportions have changed. For example, the front wheels are now 1.7 inches further forward than the former Jetta SportWagen.
