2009 VW PoloIf any car can make the Honda Fit have one, this might be it.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:12 >> Normally, we don't care about the VW Polo here in the US. Yes, it's a monstrous seller for Volkswagen but just not sold here. But that may be changing, thanks to new economic and fuel cost realities. Notice that while small, the new polo doesn't look cute and doofy. That's important when trying to entice a market, like America, to move to more efficient cars without feeling like a bunch of losers. Since US sale isn't confirmed yet, we don't know exactly what engine to expect, but you have to like the blue motion 89 horsepower diesel that currently posts 62 miles per gallon in Europe. That would equate to about a mid-50s rating in the US, but still. On the other end of things, we might see a GTI version pushing close to 200 horsepower, which is a lot for something this small. ^M00:01:01 [ Music ]
