Finally, Volkswagen is going to bring their Polo sub-compact to the US. This is a good thing on several fronts. First off, it’s good because although the Polo is labeled as a sub-compact, it’s not all that small. The polo is about as big as VW’s Golf from a couple of gens ago. Meaning, from an enthusiast’s perspective, we have a car that’s smaller and lighter and therefore, much more tossable and fun to drive.
Also, since it’s smaller & lighter, it will drink less gas, or, in the case of the available diesel, drink less oil.
So we get a fun car that’s cheap to run, and that’s always a good thing.
No word from VW yet about when it will show up on these shores, or what Euro aftermarket goodies we’ll be able to get (hopefully all of them), but VW has given us something to look forward to.
