Volkswagen is giving its customers even better value for money, with extra standard equipment on Polo models, along with the introduction of the stylish yet economical Polo R-Line Style.
The super-frugal Polo BlueMotion and the value-packed Polo Match now come with rear parking sensors, cruise control and an alarm, and the Match has been renamed the Polo Match Edition, to indicate its enhanced specification. Together, the additional equipment has a value of £510, but the price for these models is increased by just £135 starting at £11,910 (OTR RRP) for the 1.2-litre 60 PS three-door.
Further up the Polo range, the SEL, R-Line, BlueGT and GTI models all now come with cruise control and rear parking sensors (as well as an alarm, which as before remains standard equipment), without any increase in price.
As well as these enhancements, a new model joins the Polo line-up: the Polo R-Line Style. As the name suggests, the R-Line Style packs all of the great looks of the Polo R-Line, but with equipment and engines that make it even more accessible and prices starting from £11,740.
Based on the Polo S, the Polo R-Line Style adds the R-Line body kit – which consists of distinctive front and rear bumpers, a bespoke radiator grille, and side skirts – body-coloured door handles and door mirrors, 16-inch ‘Rivazza’ alloy wheels and a Bluetooth touch phone kit. As on the Polo S, air conditioning is an option on the Polo R-Line Style. The new model is available four eye-catching colours: Flash Red, Candy White, Nimbus Grey and Deep Black Pearl.
While the Polo R-Line comes with a 1.2-litre TSI 105 PS engine, the Polo R-Line Style is available with either a 1.2-litre 60 PS engine or a 1.2-litre 70 PS unit, in insurance categories 5E and 8E respectively, making it much more accessible for younger drivers.
Prices of the enhanced Polo range can be found below. Also, from now until 30 June 2013, all Polo models acquired on the Solutions PCP package come with a £1,000 deposit contribution and monthly payments from as little as £135 (6.4% APR, based on 3 yrs / 30,000 miles). They are also available with free insurance (age restrictions apply), while all Polos purchased on Solutions are also available with up to three years servicing for just £249.
