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.

So Funky, So French: Wild Citroën C4 Cactus Airflow 2L Uses Compressed-Air (!) Hybrid Powertrain to Achieve 118 mpg

Sep 22 2014 5:12pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

How does one polish a cactus? Remove the needles, of course. That’s what Citroën has done with its funky-French C4 Cactus crossover to create the Airflow 2L concept, which makes its aerodynamic, in-the-succulent debut at the 2014 Paris auto show next week. Citroën shaved this Cactus for one reason: Fuel economy. In an automotive sense, a car’s “needles” are its various drag-inducing body pieces. Thus, Citroën streamlined the Cactus’s aerodynamics with spats a ...

A few months later, the winning car has become a thing with a name: Strati.

Volkswagen Tristar Concept Unveiled at IAA Commercial Show

Sep 22 2014 3:09pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Concept Commemorates 30th Anniversary of Syncro All-Wheel DriveAside from the Amarok, Volkswagen may not be the first name that springs to mind when you think of pickups, but the company has been making truck-like vehicles for decades, with pickup variants of the Transporter or Microbus hauling stuff around since the 1960s. It may have its engine in the “wrong” end and be cooled by water instead of air, but we still think the Volkswagen Tristar concept is a faithful modern-day in ...

Filed under: Hybrid, Sedan, Toyota, Quick Spins Toyota offers many flavors of its refreshed 2015 Camry, but those who choose to lower their operating cost-per-mile, squeeze 500-plus miles out of each tank of fuel or run a very efficient and reliable sedan in their taxi fleets will only be interested in one: the Camry Hybrid. The exterior of the 2015 Camry Hybrid is nearly indistinguishable from its gasoline-only counterparts, with the same all-new she ...

French Hypermiling: Ultralight Renault EOLAB Pegged at 235 MPG

Sep 22 2014 9:55am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The recently revealed Renault EOLAB concept is providing a glimpse of our ultralight, aerodynamic future with its seemingly hyperbolic fuel-efficiency rating: 100km/liter (translating to 235 mpg on the Euro cycle). It may also be previewing the unbearable lightness of mpg’ing. With its generous use of magnesium, aluminum, and specialty plastics and polymers, the EOLAB enjoys an 880-pound weight s ...

Sep 22 2014 6:30am CDT | Source: All Small Cars

Back in the 1980s, Nissan attached the name Pulsar NX to an unusual compact coupe that could be converted into a hatchback with removable panels. Now, Nissan is using the Pulsar name for a car that's a little less unconventional. The new Nissan Pulsar is a compact hatchback intended to steal sales from the Vo ...
