Volkswagen has ruled out bringing this grown-up saloon version of the new Polo to the UK.
The four-door, which is expected to be unveiled at the Delhi motor show in January, will be the third iteration after the three- and five-door hatch.
Despite the new saloon being a cut above the cheap and cheerful booted version that have been sold in the UK previously, VW has no plans to sell the new version here.
A source said the market is too strong for hatchbacks and projected sales do not justify a saloon version.
Other European markets will get the four-door, as well as the US, South America, India and other parts of Asia.
As with the new hatch Polo the saloon will be larger and will be significantly more refined and comfortable.
The car could even steal sales from slightly bigger saloons, as the demand continues for smaller, more efficient models.
