Can’t get ’em here dept.

For some marketing reason, my two favorite VWs aren’t available in North America:

2009 VW Polo (UK)

2009 VW Polo (UK)

the Polo (similar in style to but smaller than the Golf), and the Scirocco (a sporty coupe based on the Golf).

2009 VW Scricco (UK)

When I headed on over to VW’s UK website, wasn’t I surprised to see they’re  showing the current Polo (from £8,345), and the newer Polo (hitting dealers soon) which they’re calling… New Polo! The Scirocco (from £19,110) takes me back to the days of my youth, when I laid out $6,500 for a new 1978 model. I couldn’t believe I was spending that much on a car!

I keep hearing rumors that the Scirocco might make it over here some day. Ditto for the New Polo, especially with energy prices sure to climb again. I can’t imagine I’ll ever buy another Scirocco, but that I hear that New Polo calling my name!

Come on back every Monday evening as we highlight another vehicle not available in the U.S.
