The Polo looks out for you. Equipped with a range of safety systems, it keeps an eye on what’s going on around you. And with its dynamic design, it’s a real eye-catcher!
No more routing around in your trousers, handbag or jacket pocket on the hunt for you car keys: As long as you have it with you and you are no more than 1.5 metres away from your Polo, you can unlock the doors and boot lid automatically, as if by magic. You also don’t need a key to start the engine. All it takes is the touch of a button. And if Keyless Access isn’t working, then it just means that your key isn’t in your pocket after all. Perhaps it’s on the kitchen table?
To create a car that inspires drivers to go beyond their limits; the Volkswagen design team pushed beyond their own limits. From the steering wheel to the completely redesigned dashboard that ensures an optimal line of sight for critical information; every inch of Polo’s interior has been designed to create a space that inspires and ignites the driver.
The interior can also confidently expand with Polo’s split-folding rear seats, larger 350l boot and variable load floors that make the rear space flexible and practical.
The optional, wider opening panoramic sliding sunroof, and tinted glass with a high-quality roller blind proves the possibilities are endless with Polo.
Step into a modern world with Polo’s innovative App-Connect feature and Active Info Display. Whether you want to make phone calls, listen to your favourite music or navigate to an exciting destination, Polo connects you to the world like never before.
The classic analogue display component can be replaced with a crystal clear 26cm (10.25”) screen; personalised to display information that goes far beyond speed and fuel gauge.
Travelling to your destination will be a breeze and with Parallel Park Assist, parking will be too. The revolutionary feature means Polo can practically park itself; cleverly steering into the tightest of spaces at the touch of a button, while the driver maintains control.
With a car this advanced, you’ll think Polo is back from the future.
The start-stop system saves fuel by switching off the engine when the vehicle is stationary. Like when it’s at a red traffic light. All you have to do is take your foot off the clutch. When the lights go green, just engage the clutch again and the engine will start back up. Just as simple and efficient: brake energy recuperation. This function uses an alternator to generate energy when you apply the brake or coast. This energy is then stored in the battery.
With the optional driving profile selection function, the Polo adjusts to your driving style. Depending on what is most important to you. And you can even change it for every journey if you like. Simply select the driving profile you want by pressing the button or using the touchscreen and then the drive system, steering response and even the gear-shift points will be adjusted automatically.
Would you prefer just to see the speed and mileage display when you’re driving? Or maybe you’d like other journey-related data? Or the map of your route? Or the title of the track you’re listening to right now? Or even lots of these options at the same time?
The decision is up to you: with the multi-function steering wheel, you can configure the high-resolution display yourself. So that it’s exactly the way you want it.
Is your fellow passenger complaining about being too warm? And you’re feeling too chilly? Or maybe it’s the other way round? With the two-zone temperature control, you can adjust the temperatures for the driver and passenger sides separately. And the Climatronic system can do even more than that: the slower your speed, the quieter the fans. If you operate the windscreen cleaner or engage reverse gear, it automatically switches to air-recirculation mode to keep any smells outside. In short: the climate is perfect on every journey in the Polo.
With a huge glass panel that stretches over the entire width of the roof, the optional electric panoramic tilting and sliding sunroof is an eye-catcher in itself.
Even more appealing: An unobstructed view of the skies above. And free access to sunshine and fresh air. And you get to decide just how much you fancy: the roof can be tilted or opened completely. Meanwhile, the tinted glass and high-quality blind keep the temperature inside the car cool, even in strong sunshine.
A new standard of safety
Polo boasts an incredible array of safety features, raising the segment to a whole new level.
The optional rear-view camera allows any obstacles behind Polo – even moving ones – to be more visible, making reversing safer and easier thanks to unmatched technology built into the boot.
Polo’s Park Distance Control with Manoeuvre Braking constantly monitors the distance around Polo and automatically activates the brakes if it is approaching a stationary vehicle while manoeuvering.
Optional Blind Spot Detection sees what you don’t; helping you avoid objects outside of your line of sight.
LED daytime running lights comes standard in Polo, with optional LED headlights that feature larger light volume, longer durability and daylight-like light spectrum with a lower energy requirement, giving Polo the ability to see and be seen more by other vehicles.
