This thread is a little old, but I hope someone sees this....
I was reading in a car magazine today that VW might be coming out with a small SUV based on the Golf called the Marrakesh? I think it's already in Europe. Can anyone verify or confirm? I would love to get a VW....but want something a little more exciting than the Jetta Wagon and less expensive than the Toureag.

When's VW gonna bring back the REAL Beetle-the one with the air cooled rear engine, the affordable pricetag, the one that is reliable and durable and fun and classless? VWs current lineup is a joke. All I hear about are reliablity problems. Enthusiasts begged VW for 20 years to bring back the real Beetle and instead we get that rediculous, insulting, girly New Beetle. I think that was just a really mean, bad joke. And then they stop production in Mexico of the thing altogether. Their reasoning? Sales-the car had been selling at 50,000 units for the last few years. Then Mexico made a law stating no more 2 door taxis-so sales sropped to 30,000 and stayed there. They aren't making a profit on a car that has had a minimum of design costs since the 1930s?? OK, but they can still pedal us cars that cost millions to develop and still do not sell. The old Beetle in its las year outsold the Golf, GTI,Cabrio,Eurovan in the US in '03-and you can add the New Beetle and Phaeton, and I would guess, the Toureg, for '04. Morons.

Looks like the perfect theme regarding VW management philosophy these days is "Surrounded By Idiots"....

I have to say I completly agree with you. Bring back the old AIRCOOLED VW's. I owned 1 watercooled VW and will never own another. All the VW's I own are aircooled and they all run GREAT..
SO VW bring back aircooled, and the old body style of the bugs..
#14 of 14 How about the Golf VII???

Looks like this discussion is dead (Jim), no posts in over six years. But the next Golf is around the corner! Maybe it deserves its own discussion? I was going to create one for it but saw this discussion.
If the Golf VII is out by mid-2013, and it appears it will be (launch scheduled for Paris this September), it will definitely be on my shopping list for my next car purchase. The current Golf is already on my list, but the redesign looks appealing in terms of engine (2.5L going bye-bye, we hope) and lighter weight, which should mean better fuel economy.
