  1. Thanks for your answer and sorry for not having understood what you said before. We hope that our car market continues on this way…

  2. I didn’t say that you didn’t know the difference, I said the car companies don’t think that you do. I agree though, that Brazil is getting some pretty cool cars recently and it’s good that the car companies aren’t getting away with that behavior anymore.

  3. Yes, Gareth Smith, we (and South Africa) have a 2013 “old” Polo. Problem?
    For your information, our local VW engineering team are developing a new model of VW FOX, with german equivalent technology to take the place of this Polo. Please, get informed before say something about other countries, OK? Hugs.

  4. The problem here in Brazil is different and much more complex that you said. Here WE KNOW WELL THE DIFFERENCE between our vehicles. We are now in a new phase, a phase of protests, and pressure that IS MAKING CAR COMPANIES AS WELL OUR GOVERNMENT TO CHANGE models of vehicles, taxes and prices structures. Our country is very different that you are thinking. Hugs.

  5. Oh I don’t no that we in UK have the new ones

  6. Lots of car companies stick South America with older body style vehicles because they can be sold for cheaper in developing countries and because they don’t think the people will know the difference.

  7. The “9N” code on the title says that this is the previous generation of the VW Polo, that still sells today here in Brazil.
