Volkswagen Polo


ABOUT:

The Volkswagen Polo is a supermini car (subcompact, B-segment in Europe) manufactured by Volkswagen. It is sold in Europe and other markets worldwide in hatchback, saloon, coupe and estate variants.
The Polo was first introduced in 1975, and as of 2011 has been produced in five distinct generations, with additional intervening "facelift" revisions. Related Volkswagen Group models include the Skoda Fabia, SEAT Ibiza and Audi A1.
As of 2009, there have been five separate generations of the Polo, usually identified by a "Series" or "Mark" number.
Some generations were facelifted mid way through production, with the updated versions known unofficially by an addition of the letter F to the mark number, e.g. Mark IIF. Some press and enthusiasts consider the facelifts to be separate models and hence have used the unofficial designations Polo Mark 1 to Mark 7 for previous generations. Each model of Polo is also identified by a two- or three-character Volkswagen Group Typ number. Official VW Polo history describes Mark I to Mark IV using either Roman numerals or Arabic numerals, with facelifted variants known as "Phase II" models.
The body style has been varied through the life of the car, originally as a hatchback which derived from the Audi 50. A saloon version was marketed as the Volkswagen Derby.
Volkswagen vehicles built off different platforms have carried the Polo name plate. For example the Volkswagen Polo Playa hatchback sold in Southern Africa in the late 1990s was a rebadged SEAT Ibiza which has a different body shell from the Mark III Polo sold in Europe at the same time. The current saloon is only available in China, Latin America and South Africa and other Southern Africa countries.
Volkswagen launched the fifth generation Polo (internal designation Typ 6R) at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2009. For the first time in Polo's history, the car was declared European Car of the Year, for 2010. The Polo was also declared 2010 World Car of the Year at the New York International Auto Show in April 2010. It also won What Car? Super mini of the Year 2010, as well as being awarded Japan Import Car of the Year for 2010–2011.
It shares its platform with the 2008 SEAT Ibiza Mk4 and the Audi A1. Production for the UK market started in summer 2009, with first deliveries in October 2009. Official images released show the new Polo follows styling cues from the Golf VI. The Polo Mark V is 44 mm longer and 32 mm wider and sits 13 mm lower to the road than the previous generation Polo. Boot capacity is increased by 10 liters to 280 liters of storage space with 952 liters with the seats folded down. The car is 7.5% lighter than its predecessor. The Polo has thorax airbags and has been awarded a five-star Euro NCAP crash impact rating.
