Polo coming to U.S.

not sure if this is a repost. either way it sounds exciting!

"The Volkswagen Polo, long a popular model in Europe, is coming to America."

agreed. Looks like the German's answer to the Chevy Aveo.

I'd rather see the Golf R, or the Scirocco R.

new polo gti is amazing, remaps to about 225hp apparently! my mums got the bluemotion polo and its a good car, she barely puts diesel in and its actually quite nippy for a 1.4tdi so would definitely recommend.

This thread is wrong. The link is to a news article from early 2009, and it only quotes other automotive media as sources for its information. VW has yet to confirm the Polo (as we currently know it) coming to America. They have mentioned a car smaller than the Golf/Rabbit, but say the car will be suited specifically for the American market, and we likely be built here in the US at the new plant alongside other Amercian market specific vehicles in the future.

That said, my GF has been waiting for a proper Polo TDI since VWVortex's article back on March 6, 2009. It's not very likely she will get her wish.

HERE'S a link saying relatively the same thing I am, also from March 2009. I've never read that article before today - it's only so you can hear it from somewhere other than me and to show that this is OLD news.
