    Thread: Volkswagen Polo GTI - First Photos

      Wow. This is perfect for those of us trying to decide between TDI and GTI. What a little jewelbox!

      I do understand the VWOA would have a damn hard time trying to price this correctly. Even then they would probably lose money on every one they sell and it might be a "special order", just like a TDI...

      I'd pay MSRP for this no questions asked.

      Like somebody said earlier. Bring the Polo GTI to the states in limited numbers like the MkIV R32. You can't lose. They'll all be snatched up if they are in limited numbers since there will be enough interest. After the Polo GTI sells like hot cakes, bring some Polo TDIs to the US market.

      Wish VW would bring the Polo to the USA.

      It's looking more and more like I'm stuck with a pre-owned B7/B8 Audi A4 2.0t for my next car.

      Do wish, as many do, that VWoA would just bring the Polo already.

      There was one spotted in the US with Arizona plates. Was definitely a VWOA vehicle.

      This makes me yearn for the days of the 16v GTi from the late 80's. The original pocket rocket. I used to find it amusing that people (ricers) tried to compare that car to the then popular Honda CRX. There was no comparison. The GTi was better hands down. (Except for the door handles)

      Well with the small car market sales growing it might be the right time to bring it over here.

      Don't get me wrong or shoot the messenger, ...I dearly love the Polo (I always drive Polo on business in the Fatherland) and would spring for one in a New York minute if offered here. I'd just prefer to see the VW brand survive in the US, have VWGoA continue to live within their means and keep their employees, contractors and their families safe and sound.
      I like your post, but a US Market specific Polo is likely to be cheaper and poorer quality, just like the Jetta. There is a reason why the Golf costs more than a Yaris, Fit or Fiesta, it's because it's better made, and you can tell. The '11 Jetta and beyond isn't, and if you've driven an older version, or a European version or even a Golf, you can see, feel and hear the difference.

      I only hope any Polo made here doesn't compromise too much to compete with the tin-cans from other car makers. If you want a cheap car, get a Fiesta.

      Motor Trend is reporting that the Mark 6 Polo will get to NA! Let's hope so! Maybe no Polo GTI, but a regular Polo is better than no Polo at all!
