Value wise the Maxx is pretty good deal, all things considered of course.

Knock off some points for lack of side airbags & rear disc brakes.

Optional service plan as well.

Gain some points back for the soft-touch dash, pretty good standard infotainment system & standard fit ESP.

Proven N/A motor probably a good thing for many.

Crappy engine, but I wouldn't mind driving around in that day to day. It looks decent.

Volkswagen Polo Vivo Sedan officially discontinued in SA

Volkswagen South Africa has confirmed that the Polo Vivo Sedan has been removed from the Wolfsburg-based automaker’s local line-up, revealing that there are currently no plans to replace it.

The Polo Vivo Sedan range had comprised five derivatives, covering two engines and three specification levels, priced from R192 200 to R218 200.

VW SA told CARmag.co.za that while the Vivo Sedan was no longer part of its local line-up, the Polo Sedan would remain available and “fill the niche between the previous Vivo Sedan and the new Polo” hatchback.

The local arm of the German firm also confirmed that it had “no plans as yet” to bring the new Polo Sedan (revealed in November 2017 as the Virtus) to South Africa nor to build it at its Uitenhage production facility.

VW SA explained that “the sedan segment is declining in importance rapidly”, with many customers moving to SUVs, adding that it will thus be “bringing a number of new SUVs to the market in the coming years”.

The Polo Vivo hatchback range (which has just been expanded with the launch of the new Vivo Maxx), meanwhile, would continue unaffected.

Late in 2017, Volkswagen SA confirmed that the next-generation Jetta would not be offered locally, with the nameplate set to exit the local market after some 38 years. At the time, VW SA said that it would continue selling the sixth-generation model until stock ran dry, which it tentatively predicted could be as late as early 2019.

I wonder if we would be able to import one?

I am just disappointed that VW decided not to make the Virtus available here.
People in SA are not that into sedans anymore, it probably doesn't make financial sense to bring it in, like Peugeot with that pretty new 508 (I think) of theirs. Plus the normal Polo sedan is still available I assume, and then you still have the Jetta and the Passat above that. Many options if you want to buy VW.
