After its much celebrated debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March sporting a completely new look and latest technology, this latest Volkswagen is now entering the local market.

The new Polo fulfills the highest standards of the auto motive present and goes a step further. Its extremely efficient drive technologies, best possible active and passive safety systems, a level of quality never before attained in this car class and impressive design all set new benchmarks in the fifth generation of this bestseller that has sold over 10.6 million units.

No other car in its class has such a mature and high-end image as the new Polo. Comfort, quality and safety have all taken a considerable leap forward. One example: among other things, the Polo was specifically designed to attain the recently established, stricter and more comprehensive, 5-star EuroNCAP rating. The greater structural rigidity of the Polo’s bodyshell con tributes to these results. In the footwell area alone, intrusion – related to the car body’s resistance to deformation in a frontal crash – was lowered by 50 percent! In the case of a side impact, the intrusion value was reduced by 20 percent.
 
It has a highly effective network of airbags on board, including combined head-thorax airbags (integrated in the front seatbacks), belt tensioners and belt force limiters plus seatbelt warning indicator and head restraints that counteract the risk of whiplash injury (both front seats), three rear head restraints and Isofix preparation for child seats.
 
The new Polo will feature enhanced standard specifications over the previous model. These include power steering, air conditioning Climatic, remote central locking, front electric windows, electric heated mirrors, driver and passenger front and front side airbags, radio CD MP3 with four front speakers, ABS, 15” alloy wheels, 3 spoke leather steering wheel, leather gear lever and handbrake lever, on-board computer, flat tyre indicator and front centre armrest.

Despite significant improvements in all aspects of the car, the Polo’s body weight has been reduced by 7.5 percent. Introduction of new TDI and TSI engines, and the 7-speed dual clutch transmission (DSG), has resulted in considerable improvement in fuel economy and reduced emissions over a wide range of engine power outputs. An excellent example is the new 1.2 TSI. This turbo-charged four-cylinder direct injection gasoline engine produces 77 kW, yet it consumes just 5.5 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (129 g/km CO2); this is 20 percent less than on the equivalent model of the previous generation!
 
The retail price for the new Polo is €9,412, with the registration tax and VAT amounting to €4,578. Thus the final selling price is €13,990.
