VW Polo facelift: prices, specification and CO2 emissions

9 2021 VW Polo facelift

Volkswagen has revealed pricing and specification details for the facelifted version of its sixth-generation Polo supermini.

The car is available to order, priced from £17,885 (OTR).

Visual upgrades include revised bumper designs, new LED light units at the front and rear and an LED light bar that runs across the width of the front grille.

The technology and standard equipment levels across the Polo range have been upgraded significantly.

Volkswagen’s Travel Assist system, which combines adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist to provide semi-autonomous driving capability, is fitted as standard to all but one derivative.

All new Polos are equipped with a digital instrument cluster, LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, power folding door mirrors and rain-sensing wipers. There is also an infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen.

Stepping up from the base Life trim, the Polo Style introduced IQ Light matrix headlights, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, a larger 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and satnav.

R-Line versions have a sportier look with bespoke bumpers and 16-inch alloy wheels. There’s also a black headliner, stainless steel pedals and sports seats.

Four engine and gearbox configurations are available across the standard Polo line-up – all 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engines, ranging in power output from 80PS to 110PS.

A five-speed manual gearbox accompanies the entry-level 80PS unit, while the 95PS version is also available with a seven-speed DSG. The range-topping 110PS engine is paired exclusively with the DSG.

Fuel economy of up to 54.3 mpg, with CO2 emissions from 118 g/km, is possible.

A higher performance GTI model will join the range at a later date.
