The New York International Auto Show came as a pleasant occasion for VW as the Polo was named the 2010 car of the year out of three finalists that was announced last month. A total of 30 cars were selected for the award and later the competition was scaled down to three contenders after careful adjudication of all 30 automobiles.

The other two finalists challenging the Polo were Mercedes Benz E Class and the Toyota Prius. The mandatory conditions for the cars to be nominated included sales in at least two continents in the year 2009 and a minimum of 500 units of each nominated vehicle produced in 2009.

As per one of the jury members, the VW Polo MkV is one of the classiest small VWs ever been built. The winner even achieved 5-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating. Chevrolet Camaro also managed to bag the World Car Design of the Year prize while the entire Volkswagen BlueMotion lineup was awarded the World Green Car of the Year.

The wait for the initial specs and the photographs of the three-door Volkswagen Polo is over. VW has indeed detailed the car before its Frankfurt unveiling next month. The car features three different trim levels with the base Trendline model coming with standard ESP, daytime running lights, electric front windows, central locking, and tinted glasses. Next up is the Comfortline which comes with body-colored exterior accents, chrome trim, AC, faux aluminum interior details and an interesting split folding rear seat.

The top of the line is the Highline with additional chrome trim, 15-inch alloy wheels and fog lights on the outside. On the inside you get a three-spoke leather steering wheel, a multi-function display, and height-adjustable sport seats.

The New (2010) Volkswagen Polo

If that surprises anyone, the new 2010 VW Polo looks a lot like the “worshiped” MkVI Golf. Better in many ways, the little city car looks mature and tries to reach to the high-end class. And after losing some weight it managed to significantly improve fuel efficiency. But if you’re considering it for what’s under the hood, too, the Germans updated it with two impressive new engines, and a option to have them mated to a 7-speed DSG transmission. And the one that got our attention the new 1.2 liter (TSI) turbocharged four-cylinder direct injection engine sports 105 hp and goes 100km on only 5.5 l of gasoline. Expected to start selling from June, the new Polo could be a hot seller with that bad economy. All it needs, is a good price. –

We already knowhow Golf 6 looks like, we’ve seen the GTI or the MK6 version, but did you know that the Germans have been secretly working on an all new Polo GTI as well? What you see in here is an artist rendering of what could be the fastest series Polo ever.

Powered by the same 1.4 liter super- and turbo-charged four-cylinger TSI as the Ibiza Cupra and developing nothing less than 178 hp, it should top at 225kmh and reach 60 mph in less than 7 seconds. Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, with red brake calipers, dual exhaust, and signal mirrors, the new Polo GTI is expected to do 40mpg (7 l/100km), and emits 150 grams of CO2/km. Not that bad if you care about the environment.

Prices should be close to £15,500 ($22,500) and we think that if it looks like this, it’s going to be a top seller. At least in Europe. – via

VW Polo in the US

Published on Jan 16th, 2008, 1 Comment

There is a chance for Volkswagen’s Polo to hit in the US if the response chief Martin Winterkorn gets from the dealers is positive. The guy meets with them next week and will ask “do you need the Polo?”. I can only believe that the answers will be in its favor because with oil prices that high everyone needs a car with more an more miles per gallon.

With a small car segment that grows more and more and seeing that BMW introduced the 1-series, Daimler has the Smart and Ford wants to bring the Fiesta in, Volkswagen’s Polo is going to be a addition to the market.

What would you do if you were a US VW dealer? Would you choose ‘yes’? Here’s a VW Polo Dune, so make up your mind now!!vw polo dune VW Polo in the US
