The Volkswagen Fox was produced in Brazil and imported to the U.S. from model years 1987 to 1993.
Available body styles included a two-door sedan, a four-door sedan, and a two-door station wagon.
The front and rear were mildly restyled for 1991, and the two-door wagon was dropped from the U.S. line at that time.
Although it looks somewhat like a first generation VW Golf (U.S. Rabbit) with a trunk, the Fox is actually a different car.
The engine in the Fox was mounted front to rear, rather than sideways as in the Golf and Jetta.
All U.S. Foxes were powered by fuel injected 1.8 liter engines rated at 81 horsepower.
Power steering and automatic transmission were not available on the Fox.
Early models used a 4-speed transmission.
The GL Sport and some later GL and base models used a five-speed transmission.
The Fox was sold in Latin America and in Canada, but not in Europe.
In Brazil, the Fox sedan was known as the Voyage, and the wagon was called the Parati.
There was a very sharp looking small pickup truck version called the Saveiro and a hatchback version called the Gol, neither of which was exported to North America.
The Fox sedan was also produced in Argentina, where it was called the Gacel.
