Volkswagen adds extra value for Polo

Volkswagen Australia has launched two new Polo variants, the Urban and Urban+.

The two variants replace the existing Trendline and Comfortline variants within the existing Polo range.

The new variants are intended to be a run-out model to bridge the gap between the current gen Polo and the arrival of the sixth-generation model in March next year.

The Polo Urban will wear the same sticker price as the outgoing Trendline ($16,990 for manual and $19,490 for the automatic).

However, according to VW, the Urban adds $1500 of extra equipment. The new additions are a leather steering wheel, parking brake and gear shift knob, 15-inch alloy wheels, multi-function display (MFD), illuminated vanity mirrors, and Urban badges.

For an extra $3000 over the Polo Urban’s price, VW will offer the Polo Urban+, which replaces the Comfortline.

The Urban+ claims to have an extra $3000 worth of equipment over the model it replaces, these additions include 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, dark tinted windows, automatic headlights, driver fatigue detection, rain sensing wipers, and Urban+ badges.

The Urban+ packs more cabin comforts in the form of heated front comfort sports seats with Alcantara trim, climate control air conditioning, auto dimming rear view mirror, front foot well lighting, and chrome and silver decorative trim highlights.

Both the Urban and Urban+ are powered by a 1.2-litre petrol four-cylinder turbo engine. In the Urban, it produces 66kW and 160Nm, while those stats jump to 81kW and 175Nm in Urban+ trim.

For the safety conscious, a Drive Assistance Package is available as an $1800 option for the Urban+, which adds city emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, upgraded sat-nav, and front and rear parking sensors.
