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.

2014 Mini Cooper S Versus 2015 Volkswagen GTI

Oct 28 2014 12:16pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

In our recent $30,000 Cheap Speed Challenge the Volkswagen GTI bested a field of eight contenders to take the win. However, the redesigned Mini Cooper was not part of that test. Things don't always work out the way you want, but getting a new Cooper S with a manual transmission at the same time as a new GTI with a manual transmission seemed like karma telling us we needed to go driving. OK, maybe it was just a really good excuse to get out of th ...

Volkswagen CC

The Volkswagen CC is a spin-off of the last generation of VW Passat sedans. A four-door with frameless windows, it's dubbed by VW as a "coupe-like sedan"--a car with a sleeker roofline and more visual zest than a formal-rooflined sedan. In that way, it's a follower in the trail blazed by the Merc ...

2015 Volkswagen Golf TSI 1.8T Manual Tested: Even the Basic Model is a World-Beater

Oct 27 2014 5:47pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It’s odd for us to call out the manual transmission as our primary issue with a car—we are the Save the Manuals people, after all—but that’s the case here. To be clear, our grumbling isn’t really aimed at the gearbox or the clutch, which are light and precise and rewarding to use, but rather VW’s product planning for its American Golf lineup.

Motorsports: Volkswagen clinches second consecutive World Rally Championship

Oct 27 2014 4:52pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Motorsports, Volkswagen Not unlike some other motor racing disciplines, the World Rally Championship tends to be ruled by dynasties. The late 1980s were dominated by Lancia, Toyota won a succession of titles in the early 90s, Mitsubishi and Subaru traded top spots in the late 90s and Citroën dominated from 2003 through 2012. But these days its all about Volkswagen. The German automaker jumped into the WRC last year with the Polo R WRC and proceeded to win ten out of the thirteen ...
