Volkswagen Polo has received an update for 2021, order books are now open
Volkswagen announced the awards for its sixth generation facelift polo shirt after its presentation in April of this year. The price and availability of the GTI variant have not yet been announced, but you will pay from €24,332 for the standard vehicle and you’ll be up to €32,283 for the R-Line that bypasses the R-Line. Order books are now open in the European. Deliveries are expected to start towards the end of 2021
The half-life update features simplified equipment variants, an optimized design, and more standard kits across the range. Inspired by Mk8 Golf and the all-electric ID range, the polo shirt looks cool on the front and back. LED lights are now standard, with light matrix headlights, dynamic displays, and a headlight bar in the list of options.
Its similarities with the new golf do not cease from the outside, and a new 8-inch digital booth is also standard across the range. Travel Assist is also new to the model, which allows autonomous level 2 driving at speeds up to 130 km/h, with a number of other driver assistance and safety features equipped as well. Choose more premium equipment options and you’ll be pampered with the largest 10.25″ Digital Cockpit Pro and a redesigned 8-inch infotainment display.
Until the arrival of the GTI, the only engine is a three-cylinder 1 litre petrol, available in moods 79, 94 and 108 hp. The latter is connected exclusively to a seven-speed DSG automatic system and generates 148 lbft of torque, although smaller versions are only available with a manual gearbox. Volkswagen will continue to offer a natural gas 1 litre TGI variant with 89 hp. A sports package reduces driving height and adds an electronic differential lock to style vehicles, and the R-Line cars.
Volkswagen line has confirmed that a new GTI will arrive in the European early next year after its launch at the end of summer. Details about your powertrain have not yet been announced, but it is likely to maintain the EA888 2-liter four-cylinder engine of the current vehicle, with a slight power limit over the current 197 hp and 236 lbft outputs.
