VW Polo R: Not coming due to overlap with Audi S1

VW Polo R

Contrary to earlier rumors the VW Polo R will not come due to overlap with the Audi S1.

Speaking at the launch of the new Polo GTI, Volkswagen’s technical chief, Dr. Ernst Linder, said that the company has ruled out doing another performance version of the baby V-dub.

“I would say there have been some ideas about [Polo R], but more in the press than the company itself because we have our GTI and within our company Audi has an S1,” Linder said. “The S1 topped our GTI and to put a car above both, we think we’ll not have the volume to make it interesting. It would be too small amount of cars we can sell like this.”
