VW Bringing Next-Generation Polo to the US

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.

Next year, you’ll be able to buy a minifig-scale McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, and LaFerrari. (Yes, we know about the Mini and VW stuff, but Maranello has been dominant.) We will take one of each, thank you. These leaked images come courtesy of YouTube user just2good, so no prices yet, but the kits looks small enough that they should come in around 20 bucks.

Is Driving a Certain Car Your Ticket to Traffic Court?

Sep 30 2014 3:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

It took the Volkswagen Passat about 40 years to become the vehicle we all know today. It all started when the Germans introduced the Dasher in the U.S. in 1974. Although named differently and equipped with some additional safety and emission-reducing features, the Dasher was the same as the Euro-spec Passat. The name was changed to Quantum in 1982, eight years before the Passat nameplate finally arrive in North America. 2014 brought the eig ...
