Pricing! Volkswagen Polo Vivo Sound Edition set to hit South Africa

Volkswagen South Africa has confirmed the new Polo Vivo Sound Edition variant will join its range in September 2019.

The local arm of the Wolfsburg-based firm says it came up with the special-edition derivative to celebrate “the love of music as well as the success of the Polo Vivo brand”.

The locally produced Polo Vivo Sound Edition is based on the 1,4 Comfortline derivative, with its naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine sending 63 kW and 132 N.m to the front axle via a five-speed manual gearbox. Priced at R220 000, the newcomer costs R16 000 more than the variant on which it is based.

So, what do you score for the extra cash? Well, the Sound Edition boasts 16-inch “Rivazza” alloy wheels (finished in an Anthracite hue), an R340G Radio with App-Connect, a six-speaker system (with a subwoofer that appears to take a bite out of luggage capacity), an “Energetic Orange” finish for the side-mirror caps and equaliser decals on the doors and tailgate.

It will be offered exclusively in Pure White, Limestone Grey and Reef Blue exterior paint colours. The Black interior styling package – which adds Anthracite headliner, sun visors and trim as well as privacy glass and leather treatment for the steering wheel, gearknob and handbrake lever – will cost you an additional R2 500.

Volkswagen Polo Vivo Sound Edition Price in South Africa

Volkswagen SA has created a special edition Polo Vivo to celebrate the love of music and it's going on sale from the 3rd quarter 2019.

The Volkswagen Polo Vivo is one of South Africa's most popular cars. Based on the previous generation Volkswagen Polo, the Vivo offers good levels of spec and space. It's available with a naturally-aspirated petrol engine, while a range-topping turbo GT derivative has a slight performance edge.

Now for 2019, Volkswagen SA has created the Polo Vivo Sound Edition, which will go on sale in South Africa in the third quarter of 2019. It's claimed to be a celebration of the love of music as well as the success of the Vivo brand in South Africa and offers some interesting features.

Visually, it has orange wing mirrors and audio-themed decals on the sides. There are also tasty-looking 16-inch Rivazza alloy wheels. Inside, there's an uprated audio system comprising R340G Radio with App-Connect and a 6-speaker system with subwoofer. The Polo Vivo Sound Edition is based on the Polo Vivo Comfortline, which is powered by a 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder engine with 63 kW and 132 Nm. Power goes to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox.

VW Polo Vivo cranks up the volume with new Sound Edition

Volkswagen South Africa has announced a new Polo Vivo edition that was created especially for sound fanatics.

The South African built hatchback is set to go on sale from the beginning of September at a price of R220 000.

For this you get a R340G six-speaker audio system complete with a boot-mounted subwoofer and App-Connect functionality, as well as a few exterior mods.

On that note, you’ll tell the special edition apart by its standard 16-inch Rivazza alloy wheels in Anthracite, as well as mirror caps in Energetic Orange and ‘equaliser’ decals on the tailgate and doors.

The Sound Edition will be available in three exterior colours: Reef Blue, Pure White and Limestone Grey.

For an extra R2500, customers can order a Black Interior Styling Package, which brings leather trim to the steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake lever, as well as Anthracite treatment to the headliner, sun visors and interior trim.

Spec wise, the Polo Vivo Sound Edition is based on the 1.4-litre Comfortline model, meaning it is powered by a 1.4-litre normally aspirated petrol engine that produces 63kW and 132Nm.

Standard features, apart from the above mentioned sound upgrade, include air conditioning, multi-function steering wheel, height adjustable driver’s seat, height and reach adjustable steering wheel, dual airbags and ABS brakes.

So, it seems as if VW has already commenced with their 'gilding of the Vivo' marketing campaign to lure more unsuspecting buyers with this 'special edition' model, no doubt soon to be followed by a multitude of other 'decal & cosmetic trim' varieties in the near to middling future, as happened with the gazillion different CitiGolf models they foisted on the market over course of the the previous decades that it was on sale here.

The 'sub-woofer' enclosure looks completely incongruous & totally out of place - both physically & cosmetically - could they not have rather used a compact slimline unit, placed under one / both of the front seats, or even one of those circular units designed to fit into the spare wheel rim & under-floor wheel well recess, to conceal it more effectively, instead of this el-cheapo 'Builder's Warehouse' DIY chipboard & stick-on carpet enclosure?

The wokest thing you can do in audio modifications is to fill the whole boot with a subwoofer and have no space for luggage. VW understands the culture.

Volkswagen unwraps SA-built Polo Vivo Dune concept vehicle

Volkswagen South Africa has taken the wraps off its Polo Vivo Dune concept car at the Festival of Motoring in Johannesburg.

While VW describes the Vivo Dune as “purely a concept car” that “will not go on sale”, it does say “certain elements” of the show car are “being investigated for production in the near future”.

The Vivo Dune concept was built by Volkswagen's product engineering team under the leadership of Joost Kessels and will be displayed at VW’s AutoPavilion museum in Uitenhage once the Festival of Motoring is over.

VW says the concept was inspired by South Africa’s “diverse landscapes, specifically the beautiful but also dry and harsh mountainous regions such as the Great Karoo and the Kalahari Desert”. This informed the Vivo Dune’s exterior colour and trim, as well as its extra equipment.

So, what sets the Dune concept apart from an ordinary Vivo hatchback? Well, it boasts custom paint, a roof carrier with an integrated LED bar, a snorkel on the A-pillar, front underbody cover, LED headlamps, “off-road” tyres, styling bars along its flanks and bespoke decals.

Round back, there’s a shark-fin antenna, a rear spoiler, a mounted spare wheel, a chrome tailpipe and mud-flaps.

Volkswagen reveals SA-built Polo Vivo Dune concept car

Volkswagen South Africa revealed a locally brewed concept car at the Festival of Motoring on Wednesday, and it brings back the Dune nameplate that was previously used on an off-road inspired Beetle.

The Polo Vivo Dune was hand built by VWSA’s product engineering team under the leadership of Dr Joost Kessels, and although there is no mention of all-wheel-drive capability, it does have a number of bush inspired features, such as a snorkel, off-road tyres and a front underbody cover.

Also priming it for adventure is a roof carrier for packing additional supplies and a roof-mounted LED light bar. At the back of the car you’ll find an additional spare wheel mounted on a carrier.

Other styling highlights include a unique sand dune inspired gold exterior paint, LED headlights, side styling bars, painted roof, tailgate spoiler and chrome exhaust tip.

“The Polo Vivo Dune was inspired by South Africa’s diverse landscapes, specifically the beautiful but also dry and harsh mountainous regions such as the Great Karoo and the Kalahari Desert,” VWSA said.
