Volkswagen has updated the small Polo with more standard equipment and the introduction of the Polo R-Line Style. The Polo BlueMotion and the Polo Match now come with rear parking sensors, cruise control and an alarm, and the Match has been renamed the Polo Match Edition, to indicate its enhanced specification. Together, the additional equipment has a value of £510, but the price for these models is increased by just £135 starting at £11,910 for the 1.2-liter 60 PS three-door.
The Polo SEL, R-Line, BlueGT and GTI models all now come with cruise control and rear parking sensors without any increase in price.
As well as these enhancements, a new model joins the Polo line-up: the Polo R-Line Style. The R-Line Style packs all the styling from the Polo R-Line, but with equipment and engines that make it even more accessible and prices starting from £11,740. The Polo R-Line Style adds the R-Line body kit – which consists of distinctive front and rear bumpers, a bespoke radiator grille, and side skirts – body-colored door handles and door mirrors, 16-inch ‘Rivazza’ alloy wheels and a Bluetooth touch phone kit. As on the Polo S, air conditioning is an option on the Polo R-Line Style. The new model is available in Flash Red, Candy White, Nimbus Grey and Deep Black Pearl. The Polo R-Line Style is powered by either a 1.2L 59 horsepower engine or a 69 horsepower 1.2L engine.
VW has no plans to bring the Polo to the US.
