Yeah, the Polo would be a great addition to the VW
lineup. I'm sure LOT767-300ER would trade in his Impala for that car. He's also trade in the Blazer for the Touareg, since the Touareg tows more and is better off-road.
moving upmarket, at a time when this might be ill-advised, the Polo could bring in relief and also increase the breadth of VW
's product offerings. I think the big issue is whether VW
can bring in the Polo cost effectively to compete against the Echo, Corolla, Civic and Kias. No doubt the product will be great, but I don't know if VW
can bring it in at a good price and make a profit.
Besides, I think the Polo would have to be cheaper than that, since you can actually get a Golf for $15,000 in the US. A Polo could start at $13,000 or so, and have a loaded one out the door for $16,000 or so to be effective I think.
