      Volkswagen AG and Volkswagen of America, Inc. are proud to announce that the Polo has been honored as the 2010 World Car of the Year.

Announced this morning at the New York International Auto Show in New York City's Jacob Javits Center, the annual World Car of the Year awards recognize the year's most outstanding vehicles based on merit, value, safety, environmental impact, significance, and emotional appeal...

      it would be nice that VW recognizes that North America is looking for smaller vehicles and Polo would be nice to fill that gap, and dump that City car

      The time has now come for VW to bring this car to America. With government passing new milage standards, concerns about global warming, and diesel making a come back, it only makes sense for VW. I know a lot of people would consider buying this car if it were available in the US. Its a shame that the World Car of the Year isn't available for the American consumer...

      The Polo GTI gets me all excited inside. Not that I'm in any financial position to buy one if we did have it, it would still be nice. And I'm sure they would sell a bazillion of them if they did sell them here.

      They need to bring the Polo to NA. I know they are concerned about it affecting the GTI in sales, but with all the other small and economical vehicles doing well over here now because of the economy, it would make a lot of sense.

      Well, the last generation of Polo was sold in Mexico, that is part of North America
      Congrats to VW, this car is really amazing.
      I hope to bring to Mexico.

      World Car of the Year yet not available on 1 of 7 continents....
      And no, it wouldn't take away from Golf sales here. I'd buy a Polo GTI but I'm not buying a Golf GTI just because its my only option. I choose to buy NOTHING instead.

      Polo wins the World Car award ** in New York ** during the press preview, then is pulled from the show floor BEFORE the show opens to the public, as not to confuse people into thinking they can actually buy it here.
      Classic....................

      World Car...who cares...not sold in North America! Must be VW's way of thanking the Americans.

    23. 04-07-2010 06:37 PM #23
      World Car of the Year and we still dont have it in the USA.
      VW still has head up their ass.

      The Polo will come, wait till the sedan is released...
