VW rules out bringing four-door Polo to the UK

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.

The fifth-generation Volkswagen Polo has junior Golf looks, but is that enough?

Re: New VW Polo saloon spied

I have a special assoication with the Polo saloon because my parents brought their first car-a VW Derby LS in 1980. I brought mine in 1985 Derby LS as my first car. I moved onto a new 1988 Jetta 1.3 but it was so unreliable that I changed onto Honda Civic saloon in '94. Its a shame they wouldn't be bringing the polo saloon here but I am not surprise. The last 2002-2006 Seat Cordoba was really beautiful and I thought VW should have named that as the Polo saloon then.

I can't blame them not bringing it here, it would eat into Phaeton sales.

That made me chuckle.
