2011 Volkswagen Polo
The new fifth generation Volkswagen Polo 1.4 is now available at Maju Motor Sendirian Berhad. Like some old saying, the best things come in small packages. The VW Polo is categorized as a 4 door compact car and it is regarded as the smaller version of the Golf. The new Polo features a restyled exterior following the success of it's bigger brother Golf styling.
Sharp and sporty front end with narrow radiator grill with chrome trim followed by restyled headlights mimics the design of the new Golf R which features a bi-xenon headlights and an LED daytime driving lights. To be frank, the new Polo is actually more muscular than it was ever been thanks to the strong lines visible running from the hood to the side panel of the car. A brand new stylish rear taillight is nicely integrated to the clean look of Polo rear end. The 17inch Boavista alloy wheel gives an extra touch to the whole aggressive yet subtle look of the new Polo.
Volkswagen line up such as Passat, Jetta & Golf has been renowned for its premium and comfortable interior and despite that the Polo is an entry level compact VW, the interior quality of the new Polo is no exception. After sitting inside the Polo, you might realize it resembles very closely to the new Golf’s interior. Everything feels solid and well built. This is exactly what we have expected from a well known German car maker.
The seats are comfortable with exceptional head and leg room space. The Polo is well equipped with Central Locking with remote control, power windows, ABS (Anti-lock brake system) and 2 airbags for driver and front seat passenger.
The new Polo comes only in 1 variant which is the 1.4 Petrol. The Polo is powered by a 1.4litre 4 cylinder petrol engine with 85PS and 97lbs.ft of torque. The engine figure alone maybe not as exciting as one might think but coupled with the VW 7 speed auto DSG, the Polo is capable of running 48.7mpg which certainly lets you enjoy driving than worrying about your next trip to the fuel filling station.
The new Polo is certainly a beautiful compact car; stylish and well built. With a price tag of B$27,500 (OTR), the Polo is definitely worth checking out if you are planning to buy your 1st VW. The new VW Polo is available at Maju Motor Sdn Bhd.
