VW has launched the new Polo, which includes multiple new features and more room for passengers and luggage.
The company also announced a new engine version for the Polo – a natural gas unit.
The sixth generation of the Polo has a new exterior design, which sets four doors as the standard, said VW.
“The new Polo has been made bigger than its predecessor in every dimension. As a result, it offers more space for driver and passengers, plus significantly increased boot volume – which has gone up from 280 to 351 litres.”
Versions of the new Polo are:
- Beats (includes 300-watt sound system)
The company said even the entry-level Trendline will feature LED daytime lights, a speed limiter, and Front Assist.
The new Polo is also the first vehicle from the group to offer the new-generation of Active Info Display, and features the latest infotainment systems.
Power and engines
The new Polo GTI will deliver 147kW, while the range of power units available in the lower models starts at 48kW and goes up to 110kW.
“For the first time, the Polo will be available with a natural gas engine – the new 1.0 TGI with an output of 66kW,” said VW.
“In addition, there will be a choice of four petrol and two diesel engines, all equipped as standard with a start/stop system and regenerative braking mode.”
“Every engine with a power output of 70kW or above can be combined with a dual-clutch gearbox (DSG),” it added.
The new Polo is set to launch in Europe before the end of 2017.
