there are a couple of threads in the old forum, but I believe that the car was called the Fox or whatever the brazilian version is called.

Santeno, it's european Polo, Fox coming from Brazil. <p><br>Look's good.

01-31-2005, 11:16 AM
yeah but aren't they essentialy the same car? or I'm I getting them confused?

01-31-2005, 11:17 AM
Your getting confused!!!

01-31-2005, 11:57 AM
Yups.. you're confused... The Brazilian Fox is coming to Europe as a Lupo-replacement.. This one, the Polo is a higher class car.. And slightly bigger than the Fox/Lupo..<p>Compare:<p>Lupo:<p><IMG SRC="http://www.alpimotor.it/media/lupo_foto.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Lupo Successor Fox:<p><IMG SRC="http://www.infomotori.com/foto/art_4770_2_VW%20Fox%2001.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Polo:<p><IMG SRC="http://catalogue.carview.co.jp/Merismus/NewOverview/v13946a.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>and you can see the facelifted version above

01-31-2005, 11:59 AM
Fox seems to be higher, longer and bigger.

I like those renderings of the new polo, seems more mature. What I am wondering about is the fact that the license plate shows a "BB"(Boeblingen..my car also has BB plates) plate...but the little state sticker(usually showing the state) doesnt match..

01-31-2005, 03:16 PM
well... since obviously there's no thread for nex/restyled Polo, there were no place for these spy shots of it... though I have slight feeling of seeing them arround here...<p>they are fiew weeks old but they are real spy shots:<p><IMG SRC="http://box.motorline.cc/slideshow/image.asp?id=25670" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://www.autorevue.cz/Images/4393/66.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://www.autorevue.cz/Images/4393/99.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>sources autoweek.nl&autorevue.cz<p>

It's really unfortuante that VW can't build a GTi for the USA off the Polo chasis in Brazil and send it here instead of the dopey looking Golf 5

is the golf V even on sale in the states yet

01-31-2005, 05:50 PM
anyone know what will change mechanicly? will anything change?

01-31-2005, 06:13 PM
This car looks more GTi looking than the Gti does. :(

01-31-2005, 06:28 PM
I know many of you dislike the sedan, but there aren't any spy pics of it yet? Will it follow the changes on the hatch?

I did an impression on cardesignnews, dunno if they except when I link there, lets try:<p><IMG SRC="http://www.cardesignnews.com/portfolios/portfolios_images/cdn_portfolio_379_6.jpg" BORDER="0">

Naga,<p>I just checked <A HREF="http://www.vw.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.vw.com</A> and the Golf V does not seem to be on sale in the homeland yet...weird...I think it would sell much better than the IV model, it is such a huge hit over here in Europe. Last year the Golf V was already the best selling car..in its first year.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bonk.gif" BORDER="0">

With respect to the American market, it has been widely reported that the new Jetta shows up in March. Then the new Passat shows in September. The new GTI in early 06 and the conventional Golfs in May of 06. The fact that Volkswagen did not have the GTi ready to go from the start for the American market indicates YET AGAIN how moronic VW is when it comes to the USA. I'm a huge VW nut, but the company is just downright dumb in its decisions.

02-01-2005, 07:30 AM
I dont know if its a chop but the facelifted Polo due this year will change its bug eyed look for something similar to what is shown according to a friend that works for the local VW importer who claims he saw a prototype at the Brazil plant....

It is a chop based on an original spy pic. And this is why the numberplate is wrong too (ok skoochy?)...

02-01-2005, 02:05 PM
Nice, i like it, at last its lost the mickey mouse looks, and its actuallt quite sexy<br>

Looks good indeed! The front looks definetly better than the current one, I am not sure about the rear lights yet. Somehow they remind me of the Seat Arosa.<p>One other thing: since when does South Africa(wheels24.co.za) count as Europe, drugmirko? ;-)

02-24-2005, 06:20 AM
Much nicer than the current one. Looks more mature somehow, but also more elegant. If VW doesn't screw up the pricing again this could give the Polo a nice sales boost. Now, about that GTI...

02-24-2005, 07:16 AM
i have a question 4 all the people that live in europe and know about the golf and polo: is there any size difference between the 2? and if there isnt then what was the point of making the polo?

02-24-2005, 07:22 AM
Polo is a small city car, between the Corsa / Punto / Clio / 206 likes in size<p>Golf is a compact hatch between the Focus / Astra / A3 / C4 likes in size

02-24-2005, 07:30 AM
There is. The Golf is bigger in every way:<p>Length: 12 inches<br>width: 4 inches<br>height: 1 inch<br>w.base: 4,5 inches<p>The Golf also uses bigger engines too, between 1.4l and 2.0l ( until the R32/6 comes out ) with outputs between 75 and 200hp. The Polo varies between 1.2l and 1.9l, and 55 to 130hp. <BR><BR>

the front looks really nice, but the back... Lexus-IS200-inspired they appear to be, although thye do make the rear a little sharper

02-24-2005, 10:58 PM
Yes and that makes these cars on photo/movie shoots stand out even further, ie their registration plates...<p>I just happened to be looking out the window when the Polo drove past me with camera truck just ahead of it on the highway. The tail lights still had the masking tape on it but headlights completely undisguised. The Polo went almost unoticed on the highways here considering how many of these cars are on South African roads...

02-27-2005, 09:17 AM
front look brilliant.. rear is a bit bland<br>at least for me :p

02-27-2005, 02:14 PM
the head lights look awesome but the grill i guess not well blend with the headlights..<p>the rear to plain..<p><br>i love the phaeton design,why dont VW copy some elements from the phaeton??

02-28-2005, 11:10 PM
just managed to snap some of my own pics... the car looks too much like a mini-sized passat from the fron IMO...

03-01-2005, 04:28 AM

I like this car, but cant help to think of it(especially cuz of the front) as a Baby Passat.<br>Check out the curve on the back window, that looks wicked!

03-10-2005, 06:44 AM
official pics will be shown tomorrow ;-)

I like this one new polo! Now it is better! Specially the front!

03-10-2005, 09:50 AM
whell it definitely has the VW family look now, though the headlights do seem a bit large for the rest of the design. Other than that, it seems like a solid little car. Probably even a very good car for the class it competes in, but I doubt that it is anything truly revolutionary. Is it me or is this car moving into the market space formerly occupied by the golf? It seems almost as big (or bigger) that the gen1 golf.
