Volkswagen will unveil its fifth-generation Polo next year. Its design will be inspired by the newly launched Scirocco. The car’s nose reflects the styling of VW’s sleek coupé – and inside, there is a classier cabin.
Future Polo will drop the large chrome grille seen on recent VWs for a simpler design with twin horizontal air intakes and angled headlights.
It will be built on the new PQ25 small car platform – first used by the latest SEAT Ibiza. Engine line-up will include 1.4 and 1.6-litre FSI direct-injection petrol units, plus new TDI turbodiesels. The 1.4-litre supercharged and turbocharged TSI motor, available in a 138bhp ‘warm hatch’ and a 168bhp GTI variant will also be used.
