THE New Polo is here and it comes with a host of incredible new features that will make motorists feel more confident than ever before.

Confidence sports a new look

The moment you set your eyes on the New Polo, you’ll see that every inch has been carefully considered to bring you a vehicle with charisma at every curve.

From front to back, New Polo features a masculine arrow-shaped tornado line. This distinct new design line cuts a dash along the side of the car, from the indicators all the way to the rear lights. This structures the car’s side profile, forming a strong shoulder section that gives New Polo a bolder presence than before. The chrome trim and dark tail lights in the bumper underline its sporty and elegant appearance, accentuating New Polo’s key characteristics.

Confidence at the core

True confidence comes from within. That’s why New Polo features Volkswagen’s new generation TSI engines. With Stop-Start technology and regenerative braking. With improved power and torque output, New Polo can achieve maximum torque even at low speeds, allowing the driver to go from 0 to Confident in no time.

The sky is no longer your limit

From the steering wheel to the completely redesigned dashboard that ensures optimal line of sight for critical information, every inch of New Polo’s interior has been designed to create a space that inspires and ignites the driver.

The interior can also confidently expand with New Polo’s split folding rear seats, larger 350L boot and variable load floors that make the rear space flexible and practical. The optional, wider opening panoramic sliding sunroof, and tinted glass with a high-quality rol-ler blind prove the possibilities are endless with New Polo.

Connect to the future

Step into a modern world with New Polo’s innovative App-Connect feature and Active Info Display. Whether you want to make phone calls, listen to your favourite music or navigate to an exciting destination, New Polo connects you to the world like never before.

Travelling to your destination will be a breeze and with Parallel Park Assist (optional on Comfortline and Highline), parking will be too. The revolutionary feature means New Polo can practically park itself, cleverly steering into the tightest of spaces at the touch of a button, while the driver maintains in control. With a car this advanced, you’ll think New Polo is back from the future.

A new standard of safety

New Polo boasts an incredible array of safety features, raising the segment to a whole new level. The optional rear-view camera allows any obstacles behind New Polo – even moving ones – to be more visible, making reversing safer and easier thanks to unmatched technology built into the boot.

New Polo’s Park Distance Control with Manoeuvre Braking constantly monitors the distance around New Polo and automatically activates the brakes if it is approaching a stationary vehicle while manoeuvring. Optional Blind Spot Detection sees what you don’t, helping you avoid objects outside of your line of sight.

LED daytime running lights come standard in New Polo, with optional LED headlights that feature larger light volume, longer durability and daylight-like light spectrum with lower energy requirement, giving New Polo the ability to see and be seen more by other vehicles.
