Volkswagen Fox
[American 1992 VW Foxes - from an all-line MI broshure]

Fox.  Our Most Affordable Fahrvergnügen.

  Need a lot of car with Fahrverghügen, for not a lot of money?  Consider Fox.  It's out most affordable Volkswagen and it's loaded with the kind of performance technnlology that makes German engineered cars so desirable and driveable.  Features like a 1.8 liter fuel-injected engine, independent suspension, power front disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering and front wheel drive.  Take a look inside and you'll see we didn't hold back on the comfort and convenience features, either.  Fully-reclining front seats, electric rear window defroster and an analog quartz clock are standard features on Fox.  And the four-door Fox GL also offers plush velour upholstery, deluxe carpeting and child-safety rear door locks.  Best of all, Fox is fun to drive - because Fahrverghügen is standard, too.
