We have to admit we're big fans of the Storm Trooper look. Combining white paint with blacked-out trim, the treatment is one you'd typically find performed in the aftermarket. But in this case Volkswagen is offering it direct from the factory. Or so it is to European customers, anyway.

The treatment is being applied to a special edition of the CrossPolo, the soft-road version of the popular Polo hatchback. The Urban White edition combines a unique shade of white paint with 17-inch alloys painted either white or black, with black roof rails and dark tinted glass aft of the B-pillar. The interior features black and light gray sports seats in cloth and Alcantara, with black headliner and trim and silver top-stitching on the controls.

Overseas buyers can choose between four gasoline and three common-rail diesel engines, with prices starting at €18,975.

      Just the slightest bit of VehiCROSS Ironman in that look, and that's a good thing. If only it were US...

        Eh, it's nothing different than the Fiesta, Yaris, or Versa. B-segment hatches are a dime a dozen.

      I like it but I can get only so excited about it.....The Polo is not available here.

        The only way it's much different from a Fiesta or a Yaris is the cladding. And of course it's a VW. But having driven several on trips to Europe and South America, we're not missing much. And the CrossPolo is kind of weird anyway. Pseudo-offroad look, but no AWD or skid plates to back it up. Not even an LSD. Why bother?

      24 grand for a compact VW? You must be kidding.

      Good look, but irrelevant since Volkswagen won't sell us even the normal Polo.

      Germans. Stormtroopers. Good look. You wouldn't have been saying that in the 1940s.

        Hey, they didn't have a lot going for them, but the Nazis had fashion sense. That said, wrong stromtroopers.
