    Thread: Volkswagen CrossPolo - First Photos

    1. 02-22-2010 06:39 PM #26
      They always say that bringing a polo over here wouldn't make any money, but how do they make any money then with the other cars? I would love one of these or the polo gti. How can honda suzuki and other imports get there cars here and sell them cheap?
      Thanks

      The exchange rate to the Yen is nowhere as bad as that to the Euro.
      VW pretty much does not make any money, or even loses money on some models imported from Europe. They do seem to make money with models that are assembled at Puebla (Jetta sedan and wagen).

      The Cross Polo would be a great replacement for my 11 year old Golf GLS. To bad VW thinks Americans only purchase gas hogs.

      For some reason this reminds me of Volvo c30...

      I really like this model

      I think I saw a test car in Colorado last weekend. Pulled up next to a black four door unmarked car that had decidedly VW styling, but I could not tell you just which model it was until I check the Vortex today and saw the Cross Polo. The guy sitting in the passenger seat had a laptop computer, and like I said, it had no badging anywhere on the car.

      This took place near Denver, CO at the intersection of Alameda and Bear Creek Blvd. in Lakewood, in the Green Mountain area.

      I do hope this means that VW is testing the car for use in North America.

      yes, please bring more of the sporty, small vw to USA. we don't need another mini van or suv. and, put tdi in these as an alternative powerplant.

      This is so awesome I would buy it new and not wait for a CPO. This would kill in the U.S. The name is even great for the U.S. market. Just keep the famous VW legroom and I am on it!

      No it wouldn't. As pictured, it doesn't have HID's, LED tails or an analog fuel gauge. And, it probably has a prop rod instead of a hood strut.

      Well, it would seem there should be adequate production in Puebla and Chattanooga to build the CrossPolo, but it would likely pillage Golf sales. So be it, they hardly sell and golf's anyway.

      Im seriously looking for a very fuel efficient commuter to get my W8 out of my 100 mile a day commuter duty. It scares me every time I look at that $16K Elantra getting 40 mpg, especially when my co worker says he is regularly getting 42-43 with little trouble. Jetta TDI's are barely getting that, it at all these days.

      I blame about 50% of it on the EPA, a solid 25% of it on the DOT and the remaining25% on VW's moronic accountants. Build it it Mexico or Brazil , where they are likely to be sold in 3-5 years anyway and let us have one. I'd buy it over the new new beetle in a heartbeat.

      As someone wh thinks all VW's created after the Corrado are ugly, worthless, bloated pieces of ****....

      I approve of this.
      I guess that means it never will be available in the US.

      VW is making a mistake if they do not sell this in the US and Canada.

      I live in japan and see it once in a while. It saddens me deeply that when I return to the states I won't be able to buy one or see it anymore. Very cool car.

      Quite a bit of truth to this.

      CrossPolo Spotted in US!

      Driving along Arizona desert back roads in my B6 Passat, I noticed something heading towards me, bright orange. I quickly turned to follow it but was cut off by a badgeless mkvi Jetta following it. When I began to tail both, they quickly turned in behind a gas station to lose me. It worked.

      I suspect that both models were TDI since they were unmarked. Didn't have time to take pictures.

      I frequent the same roads and this isn't the first new VW I've seen. Next time I'll be ready!
