2018 VW Polo has arrived! 1.5 TSI EVO with 110 kW / 150 PS and cylinder deactivation (ACT)

 Volkswagen is presenting the completely redesigned generation of this best-selling car at a world premiere today in Berlin. 


With a clear, powerful design, much greater room, more efficient engines and pioneering driver assistance systems, the new Polo is set to continue its story of success. Dr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Volkswagen Brand Board of Management, explains: "The Polo is a young, fresh car. It combines charisma with strong technology. 


No other car offers so much space for its size. This makes our Polo the number one compact car, and it will remain number one."

With more than 14 million units sold to date, the Polo is one of the world's most successful compact cars. Including all different versions the Polo has even been sold over 16 million times worldwide. 

The sixth generation has a fully new exterior design, which makes the car – now as a rule with four doors – appear sportier and more grown up. 

At the same time, the new Polo has been made bigger than its predecessor in every dimension. As a result, it offers more space for driver and passengers, plus significantly increased boot volume, which has gone up from 280 to 351 litres.

2018 VW Polo will arrive on the markets of most European countries in 2017 with nine Euro-6 engines. 

The power range at market launch: 48 kW / 65 PS to 110 kW / 150 PS. For the first time, the Polo is available with a natural gas engine: the newly developed 1.0 TGI with an output of 66 kW / 90 PS. 

The petrol engines range from the 1.0 MPI with 65 PS to the brand new 1.5 TSI EVO with cylinder deactivation (ACT - Active Cylinder Technology) and 150 PS. 

2018 VW Polo is launching with two diesel versions (TDI) with outputs of 59 KW / 80 PS and 70 kW / 95 PS. All of these models are equipped with a stop-start system and a regenerative braking mode. 

Starting from an output of 70 kW, all engines may be combined with a dual clutch gearbox (DSG). The GTI rounds out the range of the Volkswagen Polo family as a highlight. The TSI in the Polo GTI develops an output of 147 kW / 200 PS.
