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

      Yep. They're trying to not make the sedan look like an afterthought. Much like the sedan Yaris, Versa, and the upcoming Fiesta sedan they're brewing for the hatch/wagon-hating US market. They're just taking their sweet time. They have a lot on their plate right now, with the NCS and NMS coming soon too. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Dunno how much truth there is to it, but according to one of the guys I talked to at the VW booth at the NY auto show, they're going to wait till the Fiesta and the Mazda2 come out. Then they'll release the Polo. Like I said, not sure how much truth there is to it, but I'm guessing we'll see it next year stateside.

      yeah, that way everyone will have already bought the fiesta and mazda2 and they can discontinue the polo after 2 years due to "poor sales"...
      more like poor planning...

      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.

      And they announced it at the New York Auto Show
      Unless VW plans to bring it to the North American market soon, this wins the dumbest marketing move in the World.
      My 1996 Polo 1.4 16V still rocks after 15 years. Wish I could drive it more..

      Where is Jamie? He should see people posting here...

      Why not run same petition here on VWVortex? We did same thing for GTI 337 and VW heard us to the point that we saw this car here in US. It worked then maybe it will work this time too!

      even if they do bring the polo....who knows...i can see them changing $hit around like they did on the new jetta and passat...i doubt we would get the european version....i test drove the new jetta n hated it....so i ended up buying a golf (glad i did...the car rocks...i think its 2009 world car of the year)....if they had the polo GTI in america...it wouldnt even be a decision.....

      So VW's world car of the year is only available in select markets. That sounds about right.

      I so wish they would bring this car to the US. I'm so sick of Jetta and Passat/cc commercials there's clearly no love for the Golf over here, or else they think that the boring sedans will be more popular...such a shame.

      I'd have to move to England to be able to get the car I want...that's just sad!

      Current Polo still not sold in MX, so therefore not sold on the North American continent. So yeah I say it should be stripped of its title.

      X2...bring it over if you want to get a solid foothold in the US.
