This is Volkswagen's new three-door Polo that will be officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The three-door model follows similar design traits as the five-door model. Giving the car a more aggressive stance are its more pronounced rear windows that make the car look lower and wider than it is.
Bearing the same platform and dimensions as the five-door model, the new three-door Polo is actually larger and more spacious than the outgoing model.
There are four trim levels: S, SE, Moda and SEL. Offered on all of them are standard equipment that includes four airbags, ABS, ESP and hydraulic brake assist, as well as a CD player, speed sensitive power steering and electric windows.
In SE trim, three-door Polos get full iPod connectivity, 15-inch alloys and body colored door handles and mirrors. The top-spec SEL includes 16-inch alloy wheels, foglights, a multifunction computer and leather trim on the handbrake, steering wheel and gearshift. At launch, two diesel and four petrol engines will be available.
Two normally aspirated 1.2-liter petrol engines will be available with 59bhp and 69bhp, as well as a 1.4-litre unit with 84bhp.
Two common-rail 1.6-litre TDI engines are available with 74bhp and 89 bhp, while the flagship engine is a new 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which produces 104bhp. Pricing starts at €12,150 for a three-door Polo in S trim, up to €15,900 for the SEL model.
