2012 Vw Polo R-Line introduced in the UK

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 30, 2012

Volkswagen has launched the Polo R Line, making the trendy supermini even more stylish. The automaker built on the specifications of the Polo Match and put in distinctive styling elements on its interior and exterior. The R Line received a unique styling pack, which includes deeper, sportier R Line front and rear bumpers, a black gloss radiator grille with R Line badging, deeper side sills and a set of 16-inch ‘Mallory’ alloy wheels.

Dark-tinted glass is used from the B-pillars back. This glass is also 65% light-absorbing. The standard front foglights come with a static cornering function. Before you could get inside, you will see the brushed aluminum scuff plates with R Line logos. The R Line uses sports seats with ‘Kyalami’ cloth upholstery and an R Line logo is prominent on the headrests.

The highlights also include a leather-trimmed three-spoke steering wheel with R Line logo and aluminum-capped pedals. Meanwhile, the roof lining is finished in black cloth. Buyers would be amazed at its long list of standard equipment such as: an RCD 310 radio/CD player with six speakers and multi-device interface, which could be used for plugging in an iPod or other compatible device, height-adjustable front seats, illuminated vanity mirrors, ‘Climatic’ semi-automatic air conditioning, a multifunction trip computer, electric windows (the rear of five-door models also use these), a split-folding rear-seat backrest, front and rear reading lights, a tyre pressure monitor, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, and remote central locking.

The R Line is offered with only one engine – the current 1.2-litre 105 PS TSI petrol unit mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. This enables the Polo R Line to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 9.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 118 mph

Its fuel consumption rating is at 53.3 mpg on the combined cycle, and it has 124 g/km in CO2 emissions. The three-door model is priced at £15,195 while the five-door is priced at £15,815. If you’re interested, you can now go to any Volkswagen retailer to order the Polo R Line. Deliveries will start in July.
