The new Volkswagen Polo Mk V has been finally unveiled at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. The new Polo is now even better, improved its performance in packaging, efficiency, dynamics and styling. Production of the car starts in the summer for the UK sell, with deliveries expected to open October.
In the exterior, smooth surfaces and uncluttered lines take precedence to fortify strength while shiny front lamps and horizontal lattice facts tell a lowered bother height and wider track. Nevertheless it’s to smartly thought-out packaging that the more roomy interior owes its thanks. At 3,952 mm, the Polo Mk V is only 36 mm longer than its predecessor, with its width widening by 32 mm to 1,682 mm and the height falling by 13 mm for an enhanced stance.

With these new dimensions, so change the interior dimensions with journey, shoulder and liberty all gaining. But that’s not all, loading legroom also increases, to a least of 280 and maximum of 952 litres depending on configuration. All models expansion four airbags, unwilling-tuft brakes, ESP and ISOFIX attach points fixed as usual.
Volkswagen‘s thought to aspect is in obvious glimpse in the new lodge with ‘elegant’ dials set into a console made of attribute, ductile touch plastics and a reach of slight aluminium highlights. A three-spine multifunction steering controls, MP3 connection and the RNS 310 navigation scheme are all untaken for elective specification – the later polo first.
Two new engines will be installed on the new Polo. Its contain a turbocharged 1.2-litre TSI and all-new 1.6-litre TDI regular rail diesel, united by artlessly-aspirated 1.2 and 1.4-litre gasoline options. All engines are equipped with 5 and 6-velocity handbook gearboxes as stock, while special versions, with another first for the Polo, are optionally vacant with VW’s complex seven-tempo DSG gearbox.
The Polo would also, structure on its predecessor, collect the addition of not one, but two BlueMotion models. The first, the 1.6-litre 90PS TDI BlueMotion, will connect the breadth sharply after launch, ushering in 74 mpg (Imp) while emitting just 96 g/km of CO2 – beating the outgoing type, already one of the cleanest vehicles on sale.
In 2010, the next-generation BlueMotion will meet the line-up utilising a new 75PS 1.2-litre communal rail diesel powerplant and seeing improvements to underfloor aerodynamics, gearbox ratios, lowered suspension and the fitting of regular Stop-Start and regenerative braking and low rolling resistance tyres. Fuel consumption of 85 mpg and emissions of just 87 g/km of CO2 will be achievable.
