Despite being the biggest Polo ever it weighs 7.5 % less than the previous generation model. It now packs more space inside and all head, shoulder and legreem have been increased.
2009 Polo has five new engines; TSI and Common Rail TDI in the Polo for the first time. 2009 Polo is powered by a mix of advanced naturally aspirated 1.2- and 1.4 L engines as well as a new turbocharged 1.2L TSI petrol unit joining another all-new 1.6L TDI common rail diesel engine. All are equipped with either 5 or 6-speed manual gearboxes. Selected variants can be ordered with new lightweight 7-speed DSG gearbox.
A 1.6L 90 hp BlueMotion common rail diesel will join the range soon after the launch. This second generation BlueMotion II will follow in 2010 offering 75hp and an amazing 85 mpg while generating just 87 g/km of CO2. So with 85 mpg, no electric or hybrid car can be as "green" as the BlueMotion.
Production of the new Polo will start this summer and first deliveries will take place in October. Prices will be announced in the near future.
