    Volkswagen Group of America marketed variants of the Gol (manufactured by Volkswagen do Brasil) in North America as entry level models from February 1987 until 1993 under the Volkswagen Fox nameplate. It was intended to provide Volkswagen dealers with a competitor to the then very successful Hyundai Excel and Yugo low-price cars. Initially offered as a two-door and four-door sedan as well as a two-door wagon, the wagon was discontinued for model year 1991 along with the two-door sedan for the Canadian market. That same year the remaining Fox versions received a mild restyling.

    All North American models employed a longitudinally-mounted inline-four 1.8 L gasoline producing 81 hp (60 kW) at 5500 rpm and 93 lb·ft (126 N·m) at 3250 rpm.

    Early models (1987–1989) featured Bosch CIS-E type Jetronic electro-mechanical fuel injection, using an oxygen sensor to assist in fuel management. Later models (1990–1993) employed Bosch Difigant electronic fuel injection. In Canada from 1987–1989 it was offered with the simpler Bosch CIS fuel injection system without an oxygen sensor for the engine fuel management system.

    Over the course of its model history, trim levels included base Fox, GL, GTS, GLS, GL Sport, Polo, and a Wolfsburg Edition. Options included air conditioning, five-speed (vs. four) manual transmission and metallic paint. No automatic transmission was offered. The GL trim featured revised cloth trim, rear license plate backing, ceiling-mounted map light, glove compartment light, trunk light, tachometer (excepting wagon models), body-coloured bumpers, hubcaps, passenger side exterior rear view mirror, 175/70-13 tires, locking gas cap and three-point rear seat belts.

    The 1991 facelift included revised grill, headlights, turn signals, badges, and hubcaps—as well as reduction of towing hooks to two from four. Later North American models featured "automatic" non-motorized front seat shoulder belts along with a knee-bar and manual front lap belts.

    I also happen to be building one.

    MrAngry pointed out that you might need to put the transmission in yourself. It's just a bug with the etki platform

    Looking good so far. Will definitely install this when it's a little more complete. Right now it's nothing more than a body and an edited I-series jbeam. Not Russian quality, but definitely needs improvement.

    Literally common sense, would you demand a manual transmission car in RL to have an automatic, specifically this? I mean seriously, how is it that difficult to press Q to change the shifting mode, then use your left hand to use Z and X to shift gears, or even, if you're using WASD to play, it's literally THAT easy to even just play with one hand...

    @flystyle you should just attach the file to the first post or is it too big?
    EDIT: it is not too big

    I'm yet to download this mod (and I probaly won't because I like playing with Arcade Auto despite me not being a 12 years old...), but... looks like it's sitting on 5-lugs wheels...?

    Shouldn't this be 4-lugs at best? :confused:

    Haven't downloaded it yet because it's the middle of the night and I feel like I have ebola, but it looks like you're off to a great start. My first car was a Fox so I'm happy to see one making it's way into a game (any game, because literally no one else cares about this car :p).
    Can confirm.

    If you would make one, only rebadged configuration it would make my day. Other than that great work!

    --- There WAS something above this ---
    Even though it's stuck at manual, this mod is still very well made! Great job!
