This was one of the cars that started it all. The VW CrossPolo was in a dealership across the street from my wife's conference venue, and it taunted it us with its higher stance, its sweet turbodiesel, its FauxWD, it's nice rack--and its perky Santa hat.
In Europe, the CrossPolo starts at a freakin' $17,700. The CrossPolo in the official press photos is the exact yellow of the Drax astronauts on Moonraker, and yet VW has no plans to bring the car to the US. Did those VW execs learn anything useful in Malibu at all?
