The Volkswagen Pointer was a small family car sold by Volkswagen do Brasil in South America from 1994 to 1997. The Pointer was available as a five-door hatchback, and the two-door coupe version, called the Volkswagen Logus, was sold from 1993 till 1996. It was based on the European version of the Ford Escort, being the result of Volkswagen Group's AutoLatina joint venture with Ford Motor Company, which also saw the Volkswagen Santana rebadged as the Ford Versailles. Although there were sheet metal differences between the Pointer and the Escort, the styling cues (including the door handles) were still noticeably those of Ford rather than Volkswagen. The last Pointer produced, a hatchback GTI model, was sent to Volkswagen's factory museum in Wolfsburg, Germany.
