The Volkswagen Polo will hit the market tomorrow in Germany and across Europe in July. The price for the new Polo starts at 12,150 Euros. When will we see it?
The time has come: Starting tomorrow, the new Volkswagen Polo will be available at dealers and will launch on the market with a sensationally high number of advance orders. Over 24,000 customers have already chosen the fifth generation of this multi-million bestseller from Volkswagen.
‘The new Polo is the right car at the right time, and it offers attractive solutions for customers in a difficult time for the automotive industry. In the Polo, the art of German engineering melds with state-of-the-art technology. It is not only the most economical and environmentally friendly Polo of all times, but the safest as well with features such as standard ESP. At a base price of € 12,150, the Polo has not become more expensive, just better! This was also what we heard from our dealers at the successful Polo Congress that just concluded in Wolfsburg,’ says Christian Klingler, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Car brand, responsible for Sales and Marketing.
The distinctive new Volkswagen Design-DNA, paired with the cleanest and most fuel efficient engines, sets new standards in the fifth generation Polo. ‘Clearly, the Polo will redefine the benchmarks in its class, especially when it comes to preserving natural resources,’ underscores Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of the Board of Management, Volkswagen brand, and Head of Technical Development.
Top-notch performance on the new Polo is attained by the use of new TDI and TSI engines and the 7-speed dual clutch transmission (DSG, resulting in drastically reduced fuel consumption and emissions values across many engine power levels. At market launch, a total of six engines will be offered on the new Polo – three petrol and three diesel – ranging from 44 kW / 60 PS to 77 kW / 105 PS. Just how much potential lies in the newly developed TDI engines is illustrated by the Polo 1.6 TDI with 66 kW / 90 PS. When ordered with a ‘BlueMotion Package’ (at an option price starting at € 400), it delivers highly attractive average fuel consumption of 3.7 litres per 100 kilometres and 96 g/km CO2.
Market launch across Europe begins in July 2009.
