The All-New Volkswagen Polo

No challenge too big.

The all-new Volkswagen Polo launches in early 2018 with the Polo TSI and Polo Beats models arriving soon, followed later by the Polo GTI and Polo R-Line.

This sixth generation Polo makes an emotional impression down to the last detail. Designed to meet the challenges of the modern world, it’s equipped with a multitude of driver assistance systems that were originally reserved for models like the Golf and Passat.

Larger than the previous Polo, with more legroom and boot space, and with dynamic new styling and a host of safety and connectivity features plus ride handling and comfort that makes it suitable for both highway cruising and city traffic, the new Polo is perfectly designed for a ‘new’ Christchurch and its surrounding satellite towns.

“It’s a thoroughly well-built car with outstanding quality and the sort of finish to match any rival hatchback.” AutoCar

Boot space in the new VW Polo


The new Polo is deceptively longer – with an extended wheel base – than its predecessor, providing even more headroom and legroom for both the driver and passengers. With 25% more boot space (at 351 litres with the seats folded up), the Polo’s luggage capacity is hot on the heels of competitor vehicles in larger segments. Add a rubber boot mat for extra function.

New Polo's Front Assist system


Safety is of the utmost importance, which is why the full Polo range includes Front Assist with city emergency braking and pedestrian monitoring, Side Assist (Blind Spot Monitor), Rear Traffic Alert, a Proactive Passenger Protection System, Rest Assist driver fatigue detection, ISOFIX child seat mounting and driver, passenger, curtain and side front airbags. Standard on all models.

More Connected.

Polo’s Composition Media system is as intuitive as a modern smartphone. Touch and swipe to navigate through the menus. App-Connect connectivity makes the most of Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink interfaces, allowing you to access your smartphone’s screen, selected apps – including navigation – and music through the Polo’s touchscreen.

“The car that sets the bar for small cars. It has options for full digital instrument clusters, large high-resolution infotainment screens, ground-breaking connectivity and the full raft of the MQB architecture’s safety systems. All of that, though, pales into insignificance alongside the car’s sheer composure, sophistication and maturity of the powertrain, the ride and the handling.” Motoring

Polo Models.

With the 2018 Volkswagen Polo TSI already being so well-equipped, Volkswagen had to pull out all the stops to expand the range. This resulted in the special ‘Beats’ edition as well as the stylish R-Line and high performance GTI.
