2018 Volkswagen Polo Detailed In Extensive Image Gallery

Volkswagen’s challenger to the likes of the Opel/Vauxhall Corsa, Ford Fiesta, and Renault Clio, among others, the new-gen Polo, has been detailed in a new image gallery.

Unveiled earlier this summer, the German supermini adopts an evolutionary design, though it does come with a larger footprint than the car it replaces, which translates into a more spacious cabin and additional space in the boot.

Under the skin, the 2018 Volkswagen Polo uses the MQB A0 architecture, shared with the latest Seat Ibiza. The platform allows it access to a variety of gasoline and diesel burners, with outputs ranging between 65PS (64hp) and 200PS (197hp), including a natural gas unit, for the first time ever. The latter is a 1.0-liter lump that feeds 90PS (88hp) to the wheels. Moreover, the manufacturer claims that by the end of the year, six additional engine options will complete the family.

Customers can also choose between three trim levels, called Trendline, Comfortline, and Highline, and the Beats special edition. However, if you can wait until the end of 2017, then you could also go for the GTI flavor.

Volkswagen has no plans of offering the new Polo in the United States, but the car can already be had in several European countries, including Germany, where it starts from €12,975 ($15,500).

    dont you hate it when a small car became big, its the same size as the damned golf now.

    • Dariush

      also its damn un-exciting stylewise.

    It costs almost the same money as a Golf,
    looks awful
    and its build quality is a lot worse.

    Why not to choose the Golf over the Polo,
    when they have almost the same width
    and differ only in those few cm of length?

    You know, it’ll be a good car, it’ll sell well, and to me, IMHO, overall it looks fine, but the front headlights/eyes – they’re a deal breaker. I just don’t like them at all. Maybe they look good ‘in the flesh’. Just sayin’….

    • OdysseyTag

      Feel the same. Front headlamps (and front-end in general) take away front the car’s persona.

  • eb110americana

    If I tried to, I don’t think I could design a car more bland than this Polo.

  • alexxx

    is it just me or this is 2nd generation of polo that looks better then golf…

  • I LIKE VW’S DESIGN LANGUAGE, CLEAN AND CLASSIC. NO NEED TO FOLLOW THE TRENDS OTHER COMPANIES SEEM TO PASS AROUND TO EACH OTHER. FLOATING ROOFS, MASSIVE AIR INTAKES, FAKE VENTS EVERYWHERE…

    Not unatractive. Completely inoffensive, compared to many little cars.

  • Vassilis

    Bit of a shame for the Polo. The previous one looked good. This one looks horrible.

  • that 1st gen polo is a chic materpiece…

    Why do people say that the Japs and Koreans are “boring” when VW clearly makes the most boring looking cars ?
