VW readying subcompact crossover, next Polo for US
The next-generation MkVI Polo has been the subject of speculation for more than a year now, with a piece in Autobild mentioning technologies like a three-cylinder TDI among its more powerful engines, driver aids from the MkVII Golf and Audi A3 and weight savings over the current car. To be built on the MQB platform, an oft-repeated rumor is that it will maintain the same length as the current car but have a wheelbase five centimeters longer, providing more interior legroom. The next Polo could arrive sometime late next year as a 2015 model.
There will be plenty hoping that the subcompact crossover will be a production version of the Taigun, but almost nothing is known about it outside of VW right now. MT says it won't arrive until at least 2016 and be thrown into a segment that will have even more players by that time.
