      Living close Mexico, and these were to come to be released there, I would definitely see these rolling around the streets with Chihuahua plates.

      Also, these look similar to the Cross Fox (just bigger) so that's why I think I would see these rolling around.

      Don't you think your choice of words is a bit strong?
      Yes, Subarus are know to be gas hogs (even though the new CVT - at least on paper - is doing a bit better). But that does not mean every AWD car is like that.
      There are many scenarios why AWD may be advantageous to someone. I like it because I can drive up the mountains without putting on the otherwise frequently required chains. And no one here is going to change their tires to winter tires for every single weekend trip. So, AWD on excellent all-seasons is the next best thing - I have yet to get stuck or slide some place. Winter tires would be senseless and outright dangerous, anyway, given that more than half the trip may be on roads at 60-70F or even above. I also go hiking and camping, and the best trail heads are miles into unimproved roads. Yes, the West has tens of thousands of miles of unimproved roads. Add a bit of rain or snow, and see how well you do on those in a two-wheel drive vehicle.
      To educate yourself on mileage, take a look at the 4Motion Golf TDI (140 hp). Rated as 34/43/50 in Germany (converted to US gallons per mile). Now, sure, the EPA usually gives cars a "highway" rating close to the Euro mixed cycle. Nevertheless, that would still be 43mpg, and I am sure I would be able to do better. And yet better in a smaller, lighter cross-Polo (compared to the Golf I used in the example).
      Here is the way I see it: just a few decades ago there were no AWD vehicles other than trucks. People drove cars. Not SUVs, cars. And everything was fine. Then gas got unsustainably cheap and SUVs and pickups became commuter cars often with AWD. Then Audi began putting AWD in cars for handling performance and safety - creating a big efficiency penalty in an already wasteful lux car. Lugging around a couple of hundred pounds of drive train all year to avoid the inconvenience of tire changes or chains in in my opinion wasteful. I made that bit of bad judgement with the Subaru. Won't do it again.
      Wait, unsustainably cheap? Who gets to measure? Gas was cheap right up until the government started putting regulations on what it contained and mandating that cars have things like catalytic converters all to please people in places like Austin, TX, Boston, California etc. And you make the perfect point by saying that Audi began putting AWD in cars for safety reasons (amongst others). So, by your opinion, none of us should be free to choose safety of our families over fuel efficiency? Last I checked this was still a free country and car manufacturers build what people want to buy (some people still refer to this as the free market, audacious as it may be to do so) Chevy and Ford didn't start forcing people to buy 4x4 trucks and SUVs. If you look back to the original Cherokee Chief and Wagoneer SUV's have been around for a long time and were popular with people needed 4 wheel drive or just wanted it for fun. Remember the AMC Eagle? One of the best American cars ever. REgardless, "an already wasteful lux vehicle"? Really? How's the Subaru treating you? You have a CD player in there? A/C? THose are wasteful. Better yet, we should just go back to using a horse and buggy becuase anything more than that is "wasteful" by someone's standards. We don't NEED to get where we're going as fast as we do. As long as we can get there is all that's really necessary. I guess mankind should just cease progressing altogether because we already have all the food we need and roofs over our heads so anything beyond that is merely wasteful? It begs the question then why are you even on a VW enthusiasts website since I don't think they offer a vehicle in the US that could be considered, by your definition, anything but wasteful. I guess we know who you're voting for in November.

      Cool little car but not backing up the "rugged looks" with available AWD is kind of lame. Nothing like having the look of all terrain ability with out the all terrain ability....although digging up this old thread is pretty bad too.

      Bringing this back from the dead today in Geneva VW just released the update to this car

      http://www.autoblog.com/2014/03/05/v...o-geneva-2014/

      I know this plea will go unanswered, but VW, please please please, you need to import the Polo for the US market.

      There are those of us who want a smaller VW (read smaller than the soon to be released Golf MKVII).

      If you want to get more sales and a larger customer base, pay attention that Mazda, Honda and even BMW are offering B segment cars and selling enough of them.

      I so want this car

      X2, and I lost interest in VW after the MK2. I swore I'd never want another new VW when that bloated pig MK3 came out and they only got worse from there. I would buy a Polo. No doubt.
