Designers also worked on the taillights. They were designed like LED lights and are now in two parts. Plus, the polo lettering – similar to golf – is in the center of the tailgate.
A lot happened inside, too. The Polo now comes with a digital cockpit as standard. Volkswagen offers four Polo infotainment systems – the screen size ranges from 6.5 to 9.2 inches, depending on the size.
If you order a VW with Climatronic, there are touch surfaces and sliders in place of the controls and rotary buttons to control. The central airbag, which is now installed in the vehicle and deployed between the front seats in the event of an accident, ensures safety.
Additionally, VW has rearranged various equipment lines as part of the modernization. The base version is now called simply the Polo, on top of which is now the Life Equipment. The Model (for more elegance) or the R-Line (for more sportiness) are now available as top gear.
As for engines, Volkswagen offers both petrol Polo and a natural gas model (diesels are no longer in the range). The basic gasoline engine has 80 hp, on top of that there is a 1.0 TSI with 95 hp and the other with 110 hp. TGI develops 90 hp. The fastest Polo will be a GTI 207 hp.
The Volkswagen Polo will be available from mid-October, pricing not yet known.
