VW Polo Diesel – Loving it!!

We just love this car, the Polo is packed full of excellent standard features.

From the newly designed cockpit with soft-touch dashboard.  To the ergonomically designed front seats with improved comfort, driver’s seat height adjustment, and cloth upholstery.  To the new generation RCD310 audio system, with CD player, MP3 compatibility and auxiliary input socket.  All packaged in a sleek 3 or 5 door hatch, complete with athletic, rectangular halogen headlights.

Dynamic Design

As part of its new look, the new Polo now sports a more aerodynamic shape.  From the nose to the tail, its wide-track structure, streamlined side mirrors and integrated roof spoilers enhance its strongly defined lines and sills.  Across the entire range, VW also made stylish finishes as standard, such as body-coloured door mirror housing, door handles, and bumper bars.

Impressive alloy wheel options.

Stylish Lakeside 15” alloys come standard on the 77TSI and 66TDI Comfortline models. Or go with the optional 17” Boavista* alloys, to add that extra charisma to your Comfortline.

The  17” Boavista alloy wheels are part of the optional Sport package for 77TSI and 66TDI Comfortline models.

New striking front end.

They have completely redesigned the new Polo.  Instantly you’ll notice it’s new athletic look, with lower, wider stance and strong, structured lines.  Look closer and you’ll see touches of its new European design, including its striking new gloss black radiator grille and headlights.  Then, find a colour to suit your personality.  Choose from a new range of playful, fun bright shades to more sophisticated metallic paints.
