Volkswagen Polo is a permanent fixture in the offer of the German carmaker. Since 1975, when it introduced the first generation of this model, the concept has not changed fundamentally. It’s still a classic hatchback segment B. And nothing will not change even with the new sixth generation, which will be presented this September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Big news but we can expect under the hood. New Polo gets is a modified modular MQB platform, which is designed for smaller cars. Anyway, the new generation SEAT Ibiza. This platform will enable the installation of new propulsion systems and particularly to increase strength and reduce weight.
Besides the basic version will arrive later and sporty GTI, probably two-liter turbo with an output of over 200 hp.
And incidentally, the same technical basis as the new Polo gets too forthcoming small crossover, which will also have a sibling with a logo Czech carmaker Skoda.
