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.
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!
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.
