In February the new Cross Polo, developed by Volkswagen Individual, will follow its extremely successful predecessor, the Polo Fun. Designed in the style of a small SUV, the distinctive four-door with a large hatchback presents itself as a practical and lifestyle-oriented all-around talent with can-do qualities. Thanks to its 15 millimeter increased ground clearance, the front-wheel drive CrossPolo manages even the roughest roads competently. With its new 17” alloy wheels, robust and color-coordinated body-mounted parts, the avant-garde Volkswagen visually stands out of the sea of compacts. Special seat covers and chrome ornaments mark the distinguished character of the multifunctional CrossPolo.
The engine line-up is comprised of three gas fuel engines (46 HP, 54HP, 74 Hp) and two turbo diesel direct fuel injectors (50 HP and 73 HP). The 54 HP gas fuel engine is optionally available with an automatic transmission.
As a result of a modified chassis and a practical roof railing that comes standard, the Cross Polo gained significant height. The chassis and wheels alone add an additional 32 millimeters. Measured up to the roof railing, the Cross Polo is a full 70 millimeter higher than the classical version of the series. All of this gives it a completely unique character.
The robust, avant-garde character of the Cross Polo can also be seen in the details. Some examples: The outside mirrors are painted metallic silver and match the silver roof railing. The metal theme is also an element in the design of the modified front spoiler: The trapeze-shaped center air vent received a matte aluminum-look frame which is shaped to resemble a robust underride protection. The low-lying fog lights next to it come standard.
