1Volkswagen rules out more potent Polo R

Volkswagen may be planning ever more powerful versions of its Golf, but don't expect that lust for power to trickle down to the smaller Polo anytime soon as the German automaker has reportedly ruled out the prospect of making a Polo R.

12Volkswagen clinches second consecutive World Rally Championship

Not unlike some other motor racing disciplines, the World Rally Championship tends to be ruled by dynasties. The late 1980s were dominated by Lancia, Toyota won a succession of titles in the early 90s, Mitsubishi and Subaru traded top spots in the late 90s and Citroën dominated from 2003 through 2012. But these days its all about Volkswagen.

232015 Volkswagen Polo GTI is the VW hot hatch we really want

The degree of love for the Volkswagen Golf GTI at Autoblog is at or above that for any other hatchback sold in the US market. That's undoubtedly influenced by the fact that what may be the best GTI in the VW stable, the Polo GTI, isn't sold here. Were it, we guess the Ford Fiesta-sized bomber would have a legitimate shot at joining its brother at the top of AB hot hatch heap.

16Volkswagen updates Polo GTI in time for Paris

Volkswagen uses a number of performance badges on different models. Depending on the market, buyers can get a Jetta GLI, a Scirocco R, a diesel Golf GTD and of course the most iconic hot hatch of them all, the GTI. And those are just the front-drive models. But though it's the performance Golf that wears those letters exclusively in the US market, overseas it's not the only one: So does the smaller Polo GTI, and now Volkswagen is introducing a new version.

43VW announces Russian shutdown, cites floundering market

The Russian auto industry is not in a great place right now. A weakened currency, the rouble, is stinging automakers, and in the case of Volkswagen, has prompted a trimming of production.

13VW goes Polo crazy with new CrossPolo, BlueGT and BlueMotion models

Volkswagen will introduce a hefty expansion to its Polo range at next week's Geneva Motor Show, including the Polo BlueMotion, Blue GT and CrossPolo. We've got the details on each of those models ahead of next week's debut.

64Volkswagen Polo updated with new engines, handsome looks

In America, Volkswagen's offerings don't get any smaller than the Golf (or Beetle, really). But elsewhere in the world, there are a host of smaller-than-that vehicles from VW, perhaps the best-known being the cute little Polo. And while there still aren't any plans to bring the Polo to our market (last we heard, anyway), the small hatchback has been given a number of updates that should keep it a popular choice for customers overseas.

68VW readying subcompact crossover, next Polo for US

A report in Motor Trend says that CAFE requirements are driving Volkswagen to develop the next-generation Polo – as well as a crossover to slot below the Tiguan – for the US market. If so, the two new models would join a few other VW products with elevated mile-per-gallon numbers, including the Golf GTD and a potential hybrid two-fer in the Touareg and Jetta PHEVs. However, Volkswagen won't give the CAFE-busting XL1 a resident's visa for the States.

21Volkswagen previews 220-hp Polo WRC Street special ahead of W├Ârthersee debut

The annual GTI festival at Lake Wörthersee in Austria has exploded over the years into a celebration of all things hot-hatch in the Volkswagen Group – including concept cars and new debuts from Audi, Seat and Skoda – but the event has always been about VWs at heart. And the brand central to the empire isn't about to sit it out.

16Report: Volkswagen to announce WRC entry in May

Rumors surrounding a prospective motorsports expansion in the Volkswagen Group have been swirling around for years now. One of the largest automakers in the world, VW's factory-supported racing activities are largely limited to Audi and its considerable Le Mans program and Volkswagen's own Dakar efforts, with a handful of lower-level initiatives and non-works entries in other series. We're still expecting a big shake-up, but the first step, according to reports, will see the Volkswagen brand lau
