2014 Volkswagen Polo Review, Price and Release – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Volkswagen Polo Redesign. 2014 Volkswagen Polo is one brand new car from Volkswagen that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Volkswagen Polo.
The Volkswagen Polo is one of the world’s best-selling supermini cars with nearly 14 million units produced. Supermini car? At least that is the official name of the Polo class in Germany – in the international jargon of the automotive industry it is the B segment. Whatever the segment name, and regardless of its compact dimensions, attractive prices and good fuel economy values, there is nothing small about the Polo. All the more so now, because a generation of the bestseller is now making its debut which has been significantly updated technically. The new EU-6 engines and the infotainment and assistance systems of the VW Polo, in particular, have now taken enormous strides forward.
Prices will be similar to the current range and the 2014 Polo will go on sale in April, with the first deliveries expected to arrive in late July.
The fast new Volkswagen Polo GTI will not go on sale until next year – priced from around £19,000 – but it could well be worth the wait. It will be available with the firm’s seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox, or (unlike the current model) with a six-speed manual gearbox. The GTI’s 1.4-litre petrol engine will get a power hike from 177bhp to 189bhp, which means it should go from 0-60mph in around 6.5 seconds. We can expect the Polo’s electronically controlled suspension to be fitted as standard on the GTI which, along with the revised steering, should make it even more fun to drive. The current GTI’s economy figure of 47.9mpg should also be slightly improved.
Also scheduled for 2015 is the Volkswagen Polo GTE plug-in hybrid, which has the potential to be the most intriguing model of all. It will use a small petrol engine combined with an electric motor to provide brisk performance, along with very impressive economy and CO2 emissions figures of around 200mpg and just 30g/km. Its sophisticated engine technology means it will occupy the higher end of the Polo range in terms of price, but the Government’s £5,000 grant for electric cars should mean it costs only a little over £20,000.
Visually, the new Polo can be made out by sharper front and rear designs. Fresh colours, new interior materials and many other equipment details perfect the Volkswagen car. The latest generation Polo will already arrive on the market sometime in the spring o 2014. First deliveries will be in Germany – where, by the way, the car will be offered at the same selling price as the previous model, despite improved features and new technology. Most other European countries will follow immediately thereafter. In Africa and Asia, the successor to the “2010 Car of the Year” will make its debut in the second half of the year. Along with the basic versions (Trendline, Comfortline and Highline), the Polo will also be offered again as a GTI, BlueGT, CrossPolo and the mentioned BlueMotion model. As in the debuts of the up! and the Beetle, at the market launch Volkswagen is also introducing an exclusively equipped launch model in Europe: the Polo “Fresh”. This high-end limited edition model will be offered in five body colours, with exclusive equipment features and a two-tone interior.
2015 Volkswagen Polo – Exterior Dimension:
The Polo Fresh also lives up to its name inside, because it was designed in two tones. Expressing a very exclusive appearance here in “Ceramique” are the bright surfaces of the door inserts and the lower dashboard with glovebox cover. Also styled in “Ceramique” are the centre panels of the seats; they are complemented by a contrasting “Dark Palladium” colour, which appears in the door trim panels, upper area of the instrument cluster, enclosed centre console with a panel in “Dark Rhodium Fine” colour, side and add-on parts of the sport seats, the centre arm rest and lower sections of the A and B pillars. As an alternative, the centre seat panels may be configured in “Dark Palladium”. The black leather and its bright contrasting stitching (“Ceramique”) that trims the steering wheel and hand brake grip and gear shift lever is also sophisticated.
The exclusive interior is perfected by pedals in aluminium look, fabric floor mats with coloured borders, white LED ambience lighting in the vicinity of the centre console and colour coordinated footwell illumination.
All petrol engines offered in Europe were converted to new three- and four-cylinder versions. The power levels at market launch are: 44 kW / 60 PS (indirect injection / MPI), 55 kW / 75 PS (MPI), 66 kW / 90 PS (direct injection / TSI) and 81 kW / 110 PS (TSI). Fuel consumption and emissions of the entry-level engine with 60 PS – in the version with a stop-start system and regenerative braking – were reduced from 5.5 l/100 km and 128 g/km CO2 to 4.6 l/100 km and 106 g/km CO2. Another prime example of efficiency, which will make its debut during the second half of the year, is the new 90-PS engine of the new Polo 1.0 TSI BlueMotion – the first one-litre three-cylinder turbocharged direct injection engine in this model series. It consumes just 4.1 l/100 km and emits 94 g/km CO2. The previous model with an identical power output of 90 PS consumed 4.9 l/100 km (equating to 113 g/km CO2).
As previously, one of the petrol versions of the latest Polo that will make its appearance in 2014 is a BlueGT version with cylinder deactivation (ACT – active cylinder management). The engine now outputs 110 kW / 150 PS instead of the previous 103 kW / 140 PS. There are also firm plans for a new Volkswagen Polo GTI. Here, engine power is boosted from 132 kW / 180 PS to 141 kW / 192 PS.
