Why these yellow Halogens? Why?

Angel eyes are sure to look stunning in this car. The black bumpers add to the appeal of the car. & speed DSG? MMMmmmm...

Definitely looks imposing. I always liked this kind of vehicle, I mean a hatch which is rugged and sporty at the same time and yeah those 17" wheels.

Here some pics from netcarshow.com

VW has launched this CROSS POLO with just a mere cosmetic upgradation without any change the engine specifications or to the driving dimensions. It is bound to scrape the speed brakers and unwelcome craters and potholes as much as the regular POLO does. The external dimensions in terms of length is now at 3987 mm in the CROSS POLO compared to the 3970mm in the normal POLO. They have their moulds intact for more of newer versions and hence for sometime the Global Car of the Year 2010 will go on unchanged. For that matter there is POLO SR with some added style points at a premium and that too has the same engine offerings that are found on a normal POLO.

Volkswagen has released pictures and details of the pseudo SUV based on it, the 2014 Cross Polo. The release comes ahead of the Geneva Motor Show, which will be held next month.

The exterior of the 2014 Cross Polo gets some light cosmetic changes over the current model. These include smoked tail lamp clusters and new 17-inch alloys. The Cross Polo is now offered in two new body colours. Going by the pictures, there do not seem to be any more tweaks to the car's exterior. On the inside, the Cross Polo features new interior fabrics.

But looks good.
Thats right. The low profile just tends to take away the overall looks of the Cross!
However the Tyres are quite wide enough, which if clubbed with a higher profile would just make jaws drop

Any info on the Price Range yet?
Cross seems to be the buzz now, as heard that Toyota's planning an SUV cross for the Etios

Those Alloys on a regular Polo would have looked fabulous. Polo is one of the few timeless understated designs, not sure what VW is trying to do with this.

Spotted the New Cross Polo in Ahmedabad today afternoon. Took a few pics of the car before the owner of the car got 'Cross' with me

Apologies for the last pic. The afternoon sun made it impossible for me to picture the insides of the car without having my own reflection pasted on the windows. Oh and just to confirm- I peeped inside the car and mentally compared the dashboard with the regular Polo. Everything looks the same apart from the audio/infotainment system. That definitely is new and a more advanced one! (Or maybe it comes with the regular one and the owner of the car decided to go in for an aftermarket one- but it was definitely different to the music system on the normal Polo's)

Folks

Someone in my office is considering selling his Swift and buying a new hatch that has the seats at the same height of the Swift, and not low like the i10 Grande or Polo, nor too high as in SUVs. They should be easily accessible to aged people.

Does the Polo Cross have a higher seating position? Any change in GC?

I suggested the EcoSport to him, but perhaps the seats in that car are too high? And he's not interested in the WagonR/ Ritz or a new Swift.
