VW Bringing Next-Generation Polo to the US

Jul 9 2013, 12:00pm CDT | by

More options for US Volkswagen fans coming soon

Word is circulating that Volkswagen may be set to enter the US subcompact car market with its next-generation Polo. Motortrend reports that a company spokesman confirmed that the next generation Polo would be coming to the US. Motor trend also reports that rumors point to Volkswagen introducing a subcompact crossover set below the Tiguan.

The crossover will reportedly be built using the Volkswagen MQB architecture used in the upcoming 7-seat crossover, but the small crossover will be more along the lines of the Ford Fiesta in size. The VW spokesman confirmed to Motortrend that the subcompact Volkswagen crossover is coming to the US along with the closely related next-generation Polo hatchback.

The small crossover SUV is reportedly at least three years away. The cheapest Volkswagen currently available in the US is the 2013 Jetta selling for $16,720. That would leave Volkswagen with for additional models in the US in both pricing and positioning.

2015 Volkswagen Golf R SportWagen Spied: So Rad, So Off-Limits

Oct 21 2014 4:43pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

What It Is: This is an easy one, as far as our daily routine of identifying future products goes, because no effort has been made whatsoever to obscure the car: It’s a Volkswagen Golf R SportWagen circling the Nürburgring. It’s quite obviously a Euro-market model, as VW has only shown us Americans the SportWagen in “concept” form at this year’s New York auto show. The basic Wagen’s U.S. arrival is inevitable, though, and you can read our drive of the Euro version for an idea of what to expe ...

2015 Lincoln MKC 2.3 EcoBoost AWD Tested: Comfort and Confidence in a Great Escape

Oct 20 2014 5:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

A decade from now, automotive gods willing and if everything goes according to plan, we might recognize this MKC as Lincoln’s great escape. That’s escape with a lowercase “e.” Because while the MKC is based on the Ford Escape, Lincoln has finally, gently broken free from its reputation for building overpriced, reskinned Fords. The rudderless luxury brand appears to be gradually learning the fine art of parts sharing that has been so successful for brands like Volkswagen and A ...
