If the rumors hold true, and Volkswagen does indeed bring their Polo here to the U.S. just what sort of car will we get? More importantly, just what sort of car could we make it into (I’m looking at you, Euro tuners)? The Polo is a small-ish hatchback that’s is below the current Golf, size-wise (or about where the Golf was one or two generations ago).
That’s a good place to start, because smaller usually means better performance. And even better, the Polo is not new, just new to these shores. It’s been around Europe for quite some time, so what happens if a respected Euro-tuner, let’s say ABT, the guys that do heavy mods to Audis as well as race them in the DTM series, were to get their hands on the current gen Polo?
