The Volkswagen Polo is best known for its hatchback bodystyle, but certain markets, like Russia, prefer a traditional sedan bodystyle. VW threw a bone to 4-door lovers in Moscow, when it unveiled its new Polo sedan, but the big news for us is that the Polo sedan is a lock to come to North America, as VW ramps up its quest to push 800,000 vehicles out the door each year by 2018.

The Russian Polo sedan will come with a 1.6L 103 horsepower four-cylinder with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox, numbers that seem a little low for North American tastes. We’re hoping the 1.2 TSI turbo engine, or better yet, the Polo GTI, make it across the pond, but we won’t hold our breath.
