Save, switch off, stroll

Wolfsburg, 26. February 2014 – At the end of January, VW showed pictures of the redesigned Polo for the first time. At its trade fair premiere at the Geneva Motor Show (6. until 16. March 2014) the manufacturer also brings the Polo derivatives in a slightly different form. Almost all of them will be at the German dealers from April.

Save and switch off

As a diesel in the NEDC, the VW Polo BlueMotion will consume 3.1 liters per 100 kilometers in the future. In connection with the 45 liter tank, a range of over 1,400 kilometers would be possible. The BlueMotion economy package includes the usual ingredients: tires with low rolling resistance, modified rear and front spoilers. The Polo TSI BlueMotion is completely new with a one-liter turbo gasoline engine and 95 hp. It should come to 4.1 liters and 94 grams of CO2. It should only roll to the dealers in the course of the year.

The VW Polo BlueGT is taking a different approach. Its 1.4-liter TSI gets ten more horsepower and now has 150 horsepower. The second and third cylinders are switched off in partial load operation. If the customer has ordered the seven-speed DSG, the BlueGT should consume 4.7 liters in the NEDC, which corresponds to 108 grams of CO2. This value was allowed to be the absolute exception in practice, not least because hardly anyone buys a 150 hp Polo to set new consumption records. VW specifies the top speed at 220 km / h. The standard features of the Polo BlueGT are 17-inch aluminum, a roof spoiler and a body that has been lowered by 15 millimeters.

SUV look

The CrossPolo offers a slightly SUV look with a silver underguard at the front and rear as well as black plastic planking. All-wheel drive will also continue to be unavailable. In Germany it will be available with two diesel engines and two gasoline engines, and the range will range from 90 to 110 hp. Another TSI is to follow in autumn 2014. If you like it visually brisk, you can upgrade the Polo with R-Line packages. There are, among other things, widened side skirts and an indicated diffuser.
