VW Bringing Next-Generation Polo to the US

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.
