      What is the "non-official, we won't hold you to it, might happen" word from VWOA on this hitting the U.S.?

      Wow

      I'd buy that if I were in the market for an inexpensive run-about

      VW would be smart to bring this to North America

      Bring a Polo GTi to the US and I'll buy one.

      Hopefully der neu Polo's center armrest won't have that same crummy latch as it did in the MkIV and B5... sure looks familiar though. Kudos for bucking the current VW design language with the gauge cluster. Of course, that too may also be recycled MkIV tooling. Just put good window regulators in this one and it'll be a winner.

      Like everyone else said, sharp car and bring it to the U.S. Especially with everyone suddenly understanding the concept of good mileage, these would probably sell quite well.

      3...2...1...

      All kidding aside, this looks perty good. I'm looking hard at the Fiesta and I like the Fit quite a bit... at least the old one, I've not driven the new one, but it's mileage on the highway isn't what I'd like. Hell, with the discounts available I could buy a new Malibu for just a little more and it actually matches the highway mileage of the Fit...

      ... which brings us back to the Polo and Fiesta (and perhaps the Spark). It's again a good time to like small cars.

      Edit: What's the word on handling/suspension? Looks don't mean squat to me. OK, maybe a little, but I want a fun (not necessarily powerful), functional hatch first.

      I'm sorry guys, but that thing looks too much like a 2009 STI
      The curves are very much the same.

      STI

      POLO

      The only way I would own it, is if it offered Superior Suspension, engine, transmission, etc package than a STI...
      Which I doubt...

      Sorry guys

      It says "on every continent", not every country in each continent...North America includes Mexico, Canada, and the country's of central America. So the statement could be accurate and we'd still get the shaft.

      I hope they bring it.

      Errrrmmmmmmmmmmm. No.

      They aren't the same size or price, nor are they aimed at the same buyer.

      Oh, and no it doesn't look like it. This looks like a hatchback and the Subaru looks like a wagon. Also, how do you know it's 'til you drive it?

      You're really comparing a Polo, which is VW's econobox, to an STI? Really?

      I doubt it, but there's nothing to scale it and there are no specs, so who knows?

      Polo GTi with 200hp 2.0 FSI turbo please, cloth interior, white paint... will buy

      honestly it looks better than Golf VI...

      this would be great competition to the Honda Fit in the U.S. which I see all the time, so they must be selling. There is a big demand for these types of cars VW, get on it.

      OK VWOA

      Read this, if you bring this car in, I will buy it. Its got to have a stick and any engine but the 2.5L 5 cylinder. Gas or Diesel OK.

      There is a market for B segment cars here, now stop with your excuses and bring this car in. Be a leader again for once!


    34. 03-02-2009 04:44 PM #34
      yea man...ide take a Polo w/2.0T!

      looks like what im hearing n have been feeling,, is that all the models have grown in size over the years..Golf,Jetta,Passat...whatevs. so this will make room for VW's future plans to bring the Polo or other models here, the Polo is prob. the size of a mkIV Golf...so i would say by 2011 we might see something. the days are upon us...i hope!

      thats my two cents...

      Wow, that looks really good for a non-GTI. I wonder what the GTI will look like?
