Volkswagen’s diminutive Fox continues to do big business in its home country, Brazil. This is in stark contrast to its performance in Europe where it has been overtaken by the Up!.

The 2013 model year of the VW Fox is the most fuel-efficient one thus far and proudly sports a BlueMotion badge, the sign that it is indeed a VW fuel-saving vehicle. The newest model, with a new grille, bumper and underbody, is more aerodynamic than any of its predecessors. Buyers in Brazil will receive a car with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder eight-valve engine that can run on either gasoline or ethanol. This latter fuel is common in the meat-loving nation.

Being a fuel-efficient vehicle, the fox is not so quick, though relatively fast. It takes more than 10 seconds to reach 62 miles per hour and has a top speed of 114 mph. A three-door Fox will have a starting price of $19,521, while the five-door will start at $20,356.
