VW's Cross Golf Will Not Cross Atlantic

Does it dull the pain to see that Ford's not alone in depriving the US market of its more interesting and promising-looking family-savvy cars?

Does it help knowing that the Mercedes B-Class made it as far as Windsor, but not quite into Detroit? To Niagara Falls, but only to the side that's not a ghost town?


Does it help drown out the angry voices in your head to know that VW is only planning to introduce this high-roof, AWD version of the new Golf, dubbed the Cross Golf, only in Europe?

Yeah, I didn't think so.

Der Luftblasewagen: Volkswagen Reveals High-Roof Cross Golf
Previously: have you drooled over a Ford Mondeo Concept Wagon lately?


Oh, just spend the $40k and get the A3. Er, maybe not. This reminds me a little bit of the A2, another sweet car (actually a much, much sweeter car) we didn't get.

[ah, the a2. a bit ahead of its time, or almost brilliant, or something slightly off. it should've been a great car. -ed.]

Looks more like a VW version of the Pontiac Vibe or Toyota Matrix. Take away the roof rails and you have a Dodge Caliber.
