The Volkswagen Polo is one of the most successful compact cars with over 18 million units built, the new Polo boasts a refreshed look, technologies that before were only available on higher class vehicles, and plenty of interior options to express your style.
Volkswagen has reconfigured the specification packages: starting with the Polo version, and continuing with Life, Style, and R-Line. Even the entry-level model now boasts a significantly broader range of standard equipment which includes LED headlights, LED tail light clusters, a multifunction steering wheel, and Lane Assist. Volkswagen has now incorporated the Digital Cockpit into the basic equipment and there is a range of other features that are now fitted as standard: the air conditioning system, the Composition Media audio system with 6.5-inch monitor, a Bluetooth mobile phone interface, exterior mirrors that can be electrically adjusted and heated, and electric windows throughout the vehicle.
The next level up is the specification package Life. This includes additional standard features such as 15-inch rather than 14-inch wheels, App-Connect, a centre armrest with an additional USB-C port in the middle of the passenger compartment and leather trim on the steering wheel and gear stick for added comfort.
The expanded range of equipment for the Polo Style includes the IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights. Other exterior features include the distinctive front end with chrome-look crossbars, LED fog lights and 15-inch Ronda alloy wheels. Inside, there is a range of additional details such as the 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit Pro (including image of caller, Coverflow, map view and Slide Show), background lighting and the 8-inch Infotainment system Ready2Discover, which includes App-Connect Wireless. With Ready2Discover, customers have the option of retrofitting the navigation system as a feature on demand.
The R-Line’s highly individual exterior reveals its sporty character. The bumpers are distinguished the striking R design and in the front bumper, the high-gloss black cross and longitudinal bars of the air intakes and their surround convey a charismatic sense of dynamism. Here too, IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights and LED fog lights are fitted as standard. A diffuser – again in high-gloss black – with chrome-look integrated exhaust panels in the lower part of the vehicle rear distinguishes this area from the Polo, Life and Style equipment versions. And the 16-inch Valencia alloy wheels are fitted on the Polo R-Line as standard. Like the Polo Style, the Polo R-Line comes equipped with the Ready2Discover Infotainment system.
