2010 Volkswagen Polo Unveiled - Web Exclusive

The new three-door VW Polo has been unveiled ahead of its public debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Drawing on the same clean, sharp lines adopted by the five-door model, the three-door features a more aggressive stance, with a pronounced kink in the window line just above a sharp crease running the length of the car. The overall effect is a cohesive design that makes the new Polo appear low and wide.

The three-door model shares the same platform and dimensions as the five-door and benefits from the same gains in quality, space, safety and refinement over the outgoing model.

Built at Volkswagen's Pamplona production facility in Spain, the Polo can be fitted with four airbags, ABS, ESP, hydraulic brake assist and speed sensitive power steering.

At launch the new three-door will be available with a choice of six engines, four gasoline and two diesel. These are a pair of naturally-aspirated 1.2-liter engines with 60 or 70hp and a 1.4-liter 85hp; plus two 1.6-liter common0rail TDI units producing 75 or 90hp. All engines comply with Euro V emissions legislation. A new 1.2-liter 105hp turbocharged TSI unit will also be offered.
