VW's latest Fox is a little "Fresh"

While we wait for the Volkswagen Up! to make it to showrooms, VW would like to offer us a special model of the Fox. This little city car, called the Fox "Fresh," is just 3.82 meters long and comes with one of two petrol engines or a diesel powerplant. The gasoline-powered versions have either a 40 kW / 55 PS or a 55 kW / 75 PS engine and the diesel version puts out 51 kW / 70 PS. VW didn't release updated fuel economy numbers, so I'll assume the standard Fox numbers are still accurate. This means the smaller petrol engine uses 5.9 liters per 100 km and puts out 139 g of CO2 per kilometer; the larger petrol version bumps that up to 6.7 and 159; and the diesel uses 4.9 and emits 130 g/km.
The Fresh includes MP3 player compatibility, something called an "Easy Entry" system (i.e., a larger space for passengers to get in or out of the rear seats), and 185/60 R14 tyres on the petrol versions. VW hopes people will like the small price as well: the Fresh starts at €10,575 and it's available now.
