SPOTTED: New Volkswagen Polo Vivo parked in Joburg

Alberton - Wheels24 reader Arno Moller has spotted the new Polo Vivo at the Barons VW Bruma, ahead of its local launch later in February.

Earlier this week Volkswagen has launched its new sixth-generation Polo in Port Elizabeth where the new Polo Vivo was also unveiled.

Wheels24 will be attending the launch of the next Polo Vivo during mid-February.

Moller says: "I was visiting a local VW dealer when this caught my eye in a corner of their storage yard, three new Polo Vivos. The vehicles were apparently part of a consignment for Avis.

"They are based on the outgoing Polo Trendline. Engine options remain the same (1.4 and 1.6-litre). However, there are rumours that the GTS will use the same 85kW 1.0-litre TSI as found in the current Polo R-Line."

Moller also says of the new Polo Vivo: "I think it is a worthy successor to the current Vivo, and I happen to drive one.

"This will without a doubt replace my current vehicle once it becomes available. I had a look on the inside too. On the base models, specification levels seem identical to the current Polo Trendline. 

"Unfortunately, the other models weren’t available, but the salesman has advised me that the GTS will feature the 85kW 1.0-litre TSI engine as featured in the current Polo R-line.
