Polo BlueMotion – In the past, the most efficient five-seater only came as a turbo diesel, but drivers will get a chance to buy a turbo gas version by the end of the year. The engine in the new gasoline version will be a three-cylinder — the first time this engine is being used by Volkswagen.
Polo BlueGT – By using cylinder shut-off technology, this trim will offer maximum performance combined with maximum efficiency.
CrossPolo – This trim will address the demand of customers who want a customized off-road look without losing on-road characteristics. The CrossPolo now comes in more colors, has new interior materials, a new kind of wheel, and smoked taillights.
R-Line Package – The R-Line program is available for the Polo Highline and Polo Comfortline. R-Line packages offer new exterior and interior options like sports seats, special steering wheels, and a special bumper.
