Last year Polo sold in Europe with a circulation of 561 308 instance, a little nedostanu to a leader In class- the French Renault Clio (sold 315 115 pieces). This year, however, rushed forward coupled with Ford’s Fiesta and has already managed to outsell not only the Clio and Polo, but also permanent for many years of absolute European best — selling VW Golf.

The task of the new Polo to regain the lead brand Volkswagen as in a small class and in overall classification. For this he has everything he needs and, above all, spacious body: wheelbase increased from 2456 to 2564 mm, length — up to 3972 4053 mm, the amount of Luggage — from 280 to 351 L. In fact, the sixth generation Polo has become as roomy as Golf fourth. The new Polo — platform MQB, which seems to be used wherever possible, from the proportionate hatchback SEAT Ibiza crossover-the giant VW Teramont.

Outside, the new hatchback is a typical Volkswagen, but has its own twist: undulating led headbands in the headlights. In the cabin the instrument panel and multimedia system screen visually combined into a single unit, while the Central console is slightly tilted in favor of the driver.

Ruler powertrain consists of a gasoline engine capacity from 65 to 150 HP and two diesels with capacity of 80 and 95 HP, transmission — 5 – and 6-speed manual gearbox or 7-speed DSG. Of special note is the charged version of the Polo GTI c engine 2.0 TSI (200 HP) with an original décor and a special tuned suspension.

In Europe sales of the new Polo will begin in October at a price of 12 Euro 975 for the base 5-door version with petrol engine (trendwerk no longer). In Russia, the sixth-generation hatchback will not be sold — this body style is considered niche, in principle, not only In class, to do its localisation makes no sense. Curious to see the new Polo and Americans: in the U.S. segment hatchbacks of small class developed better than us, but compared to local competitors Polo would be too technically advanced and expensive.

But in our country, sooner or later there will be new Polo a sedan on the MQB platform — in March, the Internet appeared the first image of it.
