Volkswagen has pulled the covers off its latest generation Polo.
The all-new model is the largest Polo to date with a new platform offering greater interior space than the current car.
New technology such as Front Assist, Blind Spot Detection, adaptive cruise control and LED headlights also feature.
Trim levels for the UK market have yet to be confirmed, but are likely to reflect the current model's S, SE and possibly SE-Line.
Another version that appears from the start on the new car's life is the Polo GTI.
Base versions of the new Polo are well equipped with LED daytime running lights, a speed limiter and the Front Assist area monitoring system with City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Monitoring.
Four petrol and two diesel engines are available. The petrol engines range from the 1.0 MPI with 65PS to the brand new 1.5 TSI EVO with cylinder deactivation (ACT) and 150PS. The Polo is launching with diesel versions with outputs of 80 PS and 95 PS. All of these models are equipped with a stop-start system and a regenerative braking mode. The Polo GTI develops an output of 200PS.
The Polo will launch as the first Volkswagen and the first Volkswagen Group model ever to offer a new generation of the Active Info Display. For the first time, just one button on the multifunction steering wheel is used to switch between the basic Views menus.
At the same time, the Polo is getting the latest generation of glass touchscreen infotainment systems.
