Jetta SportWagen R
Over the weekend, I spent some time getting our daily driver MK5 Jetta back to stock as our lease will be up early next year. I’ts a fun car but we’re looking into what car to replace it with… maybe the MK6 Jetta? I dunno.
The Volkswagen Golf Variant we commonly known here in the states as the Jetta SportWagen is now on its 4th body version. The release of the latest MK6 Jetta SportWagen features a completely redesigned front end.
The updated MK6 front end certainly looks fresh consistent with the front end of of MK6 Golf. But what if you already have the MK5 SportWagen and just wanted to update your look to the MK6 without having to trade in your ride?
Well a guy in Japan had the same thought and what he did was pretty remarkable.
He started with a 2009 MK5 Jetta SportWagen known there as Golf Variant.
He then started personalizing it with your basic mods like wheels suspension, front lip and rear valance. But just like many of us, it didn’t really stop there as he further enhanced it with big brake kits, custom dual exhausts, cold-air intake, fender extensions and a different sets of wheels to name a few.
In the midst of him tricking out his ride, Volkswagen released info on the MK6 Golf R. This model features a real aggressive front bumper.
He got a hold of the brochure and more ideas started rolling. I’ll build my own MK6 Jetta Sportwagen R!!
He even took it up a notch by extending the hood a few inches longer just enough to cover the top portion of the oversized VW badge while giving the car a mean and angry look.
And after all said and done, this is the finished look.
He later replaced the front grill with the badgeless version which looked even better.
There you have it, an MK6 Jetta SportWagen R stylings based on a MK5 Jetta Sport Wagen.
