With more than 14 million models sold to date worldwide, the Polo is one of the world’s most successful compact cars.
The sixth generation polo has been designed to meet the challenges of the modern world, equipped with a multitude of driver assistance systems that were previously reserved for the Golf and Passat class.
The new Polo is now much more spacious than its predecessor, even more spacious than a Golf in 1997. This has resulted in a significantly increased boot volume, which has grown by 25%, from 280 to 351 litres.
It is also the first Volkswagen model to feature a new generation of the optional Active Info Display. At the same time, it has been given the latest generation of infotainment systems which includes an impressive 8.0-inch glass covered touchscreen.
The highly equipped all-new Polo looks out for drivers on the road with a host of state-of-the-art driver assistance and comfort systems. These include Front Assist with City Emergency Braking, Pedestrian monitoring and Blind spot monitoring detection.
Tom Ruddenklau, General Manager of Volkswagen New Zealand, says, “The new Polo personifies what Volkswagen is all about; world class engineering and technology that is accessible to the people. The New Polo is a technological marvel and benefits from the significant R&D investments Volkswagen has placed into its older siblings the Golf, Tiguan, Passat and Touareg.”
“It possesses world class features and safety normally found in cars twice its price. We are fortunate to have many thousand existing customers, many of whom are on their 2nd or 3rd Polo and it is great to be able to offer these loyal customers something quite special with the new sixth Generation Polo”.
The new Polo will arrive in New Zealand in February 2018. More information on specifications and pricing will be released soon.
