Check out dubStrom's VW Jetta SportWagen EcoHitch

What is the point of having a Jetta SportWagen if you can’t use it for sport adventures? Sure, it may be useful on dirt roads and have more hauling capacity with its hatchback rather than a traditional Jetta Sedan, but it still lacks the ability to haul bikes or larger items in the trunk. Torklift Central has come up with the perfect addition to your car, a Jetta SportWagen trailer hitch, the EcoHitch. This aftermarket trailer hitch opens up a world of possibilities on how to utilize this great vehicle. From getting a bike carrier that will not damage your trunk, to a cargo tray that allows you to haul large items for trips, EcoHitch will solve all of your cargo capacity problems. The EcoHitch for 2010-2014 Jetta SportWagen has a tow weight rating of 2,000 pounds and 200-pound tongue weight. Since the hatchback cannot accommodate on its own, you want to make the most of your next adventure in the VW Jetta SportWagen with EcoHitch.

“I like the Torklift hitch; it is MUCH more tucked in and OUT of the way compared to [other hitch brands]. “


dubStrom went on to say:
“Exactly what I need. Imagine how much room is freed up putting just these two items on the rack, and the hatch freely opens. HUGE difference in cargo capacity. And this location will be in the slipstream, which means no additional drag (like a rooftop box, no matter what the shape).”
