VW dealers say that the new VW Polo is not an improvement or a face lift of the older model. They call it a reinvention, and they are right.
At the launch of the all new VW Polo at the Barloword showroom last week, it emerged that almost all of the cars in stock were sold out. In fact, the dealers had to beg customers not to take their cars yet because they wanted to formally present it.
While the older polo had two airbags, the new polo comes standard will four airbags. The new polo has an optional electronic stabilizer program, which is optional for the 1.4, but comes standard on the 1.6Tdi.
The entire interior of the new polo was redesigned. The surface of the instrument panel was upgraded by so called slush technology. The instrument panel also has white backlighting. The fuel gauge is now digital on the new generation polo. The new polo also sports a fancier three spoke steering wheel. The comfort line has standard multi functional steering wheel and a fancier dash board. For the first time, the trendline has front electric windows. Everything is electronic on the comfort line. Cruise control also comes standard on the comfort line.
All the seats were also redesigned, and all the five seating positions offer a considerably more spacious interior ambience. The ABS system works for both front and rear wheel disks on the 1.6.
The polo also offers five head restraints, belt tensioners and belt force limiters on the front seat belts.
Standard equipment also includes electro hydraulic power steering, power windows, central locking, cargo area lighting and height adjustable front seats.
