In an interview with Automotive News, Volkswagen Group of America CEO Stefan Jacoby said that the German automaker is considering a compact SUV, a mid-sized SUV and the Polo family for the U.S.
Jacoby said that while Volkswagen has yet to decide to bring the Polo to the U.S., it is considering alternative variants including a Polo sedan or a larger hatchback.
“We are investigating what model we should start with and when we should start — in 2011 or 2012,” Jacoby said.
As for pricing, Jacoby said that the U.S. Polo would start under the Jetta at $13,00 going up to $15,000. He said that the next-generation Jetta, due out next fall, will fit between the Polo and the new mid-sized sedan due out in 2012.
“It will compete with the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic,” Jacoby said. “It will be bigger than today’s car, and it will be longer and wider. It comes in the fall of 2010.”
