Volkswagen Jetta TDI Wagon
The VIN decoders I find are always out of date by a few years. The fourth digit indicates a sedan or base model. Having ruled out that it's a sedan, I doubt it's a base model. Prototypes are made to test everything possible, and they are made to impress. Similarly, the best I could do for the fifth digit was a 2 liter Golf GTI engine rated at 115 hp. So much for 2006.
Although I like VW styling, I don't know it well. I wonder if this is a mule with, with something other than a turbodiesel under hood. Also, I wonder how much of their product development has shifted out of Germany.
