It certainly looks interesting. I believe it will take foreign car makers to get mileage up on vehicles. It would not surprise me that VW can deliver on this car. I would definitely have to look at it when it becomes available.
I would buy this car. With the price of gas at $3.21 at the pump this morning, I'm going to need a vehicle to keep driving at this rate. The hybrids are slowly making their way into the market here.
