Volkswagen Polo could be considered as one of the best-selling supermini cars in the world, with almost 14 million units built. Yes, the Polo is considered as a supermini in Germany, but as a B segment vehicle as per the automotive industry. Although the Polo could be considered as a supermini – at least in Germany – and offers good value with its accessible price and generous fuel economy figures, this car from VW is definitely a big time vehicle. After all, its production and sales have already reached millions of units.
Now, VW is introducing the latest generation of the VW Polo, and this time, it boasts an array of technical upgrades. Specifically, the new VW Polo is provided with new EU6-compliant engines as well as new infotainment and assistance systems.
For instance, VW has reconfigured the Polo’s entire engine range, with fuel economy improving by up to 21 percent. Leading the pack in this matter is the new Polo TDI BlueMotion, which consumes just 3.2 liters of fuel per 100 km (combined) and emits 82 grams of carbon dioxide per km. Meanwhile, the new Polo TSI BlueMotion that will arrive in autumn 2014 will be the first time that a Volkswagen vehicle powered by a petrol engine would be marketed as an independent BlueMotion model. The new Polo TSI BlueMotion consumes just 4.1 liter of fuel per 100 km and emits 94 grams of carbon dioxide per km.
In addition, the 2014 VW Polo comes with an array of new convenience and safety features. For instance, it would be one of the first compact cars to feature distinctive LED headlights. Interestingly, the Polo Trendline base model features K7 headlights as standard. Moreover, the new VW Polo is available with redesigned dual round headlights with H7 technology, which is equipped standard from the Polo Comfortline.
