B and C segment crossovers will finally get more Americans into the small cars.
You’re NEVER going to export Econobox culture over here. It goes against the grain of what this country is about. You have to have affordable, yet premium, but large small cars here. They have to be as reliable as the sunrise, attached to a good warranty, and possibly free maintenance.
This is the more for less country. Not less for less, nor less for more country.
“With 133 kW of power available from the turbo and supercharged 1.4 litre petrol engine the hot hatch can reach 0-100 km/h in just 6.9 seconds and has a top speed of 262 km/h.”
262 km/h? Is that a typo or are they serious?
The old Polo Gti was an awesome car so I’m sure this new one will be even better. It looks fantastic as well.
IMO both of these models look better than their Golf equivalents and are just more appealing to me. But then again people like what they want.
Totally agree. Both the Golf and the Polo are great packages. Awesome engines, interiors, safety, the lot. But I just feel that the new Golf is as bland as it is great. Probably the best car you could buy with $30k, but gee it’s bland. The new little Polo on the other hand just looks so much more interesting. It’s got soul, something I think the new Golf is lacking. If I was in the market for the Golf, I’d seriously consider the Polo first.
Polo GTI FTW!
