There are some reasons why the new Fox will not be seen in Europe. The first one is that the new VW Lupo, still only known as up!, will be available in European countries in the next few years. The second one it that the new Fox, which borrows its visual identity and some parts from the Polo V, will not be shipped due to homologation costs. According to Volkswagen, they would not be worth the volume of the car that is currently sold in Europe.
As the pictures present, the car has a new front fascia that is very similar to the one Polo V uses. The tail lights have also been modified. All changes have made the car look tougher, what may make it appeal more to the male public. The previous Fox rounded body made it a hit among women.
Besides the exterior, the car has also improved its interior with a more upscale trim and a new dashboard, with four clusters and a small screen for the car computer to present information on fuel consumption and allow the consumer to configure his/her main preferences.
As for the engines, nothing has changed. We are still waiting for a 1.4-litre powerplant, but the car will only be sold in Brazil with 1-litre and 1.6-litre engines, both able to consume petrol or ethanol at the same time.
