The German car manufacturer is expected to launch the next generation Polo in the first months of 2016. The vehicle will be based on the MQB platform and will adopt a sportier look.
The new Polo is believed to receive a longer wheelbase and may come in various body styles. The hatchback is reported to use a flatter roof and a steeply raked windscreen.
2016 Volkswagen Polo is tipped to use a variety of petrol engines including a 1.0-litre TSI with power outputs of 95 PS and 110 PS, a 1.4-litre rated at 150 PS and 184 lb-ft of torque, a 1.8-litre capable of delivering 185 PS and 184 lb-ft of torque and a 2.0-litre unit that puts out 231 PS and 273 lb-ft of torque as well as a diesel engine, namely a 1.4-litre TDI with outputs of 75 PS, 90 PS and 105 PS. Power is mated to the wheels via a five-speed manual or a seven-speed DSG transmission.
On the inside, the upcoming Polo will likely benefit from improved safety features and premium quality materials.
2016 Volkswagen Polo will be available in both three-door and five-door versions. A cabriolet version and a Cross Polo are also considered.
