The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

VOLK­SWA­GEN has en­hanced the value propo­si­tion of the re­vised Polo sedan by in­clud­ing a three-year/45 000 km ser­vice plan as a stan­dard of­fer­ing.

The in­te­rior and ex­te­rior de­signs of the new Polo sedan have also been re­freshed with a premium look and feel.

The new in­te­rior fea­tures in­clude new ra­dios, new seat trims, a flat-bot­tomed mul­ti­func­tion steer­ing wheel as well as a mul­ti­func­tion dis­play.

For the ex­te­rior, the new Polo sedan has been given a con­tem­po­rary ap­pear­ance with the re­designed front and rear bumpers, as well as head lights and front fog lights for the Com­fort­line de­riv­a­tives. The Com­fort­line de­riv­a­tives also fea­ture chrome ac­cents on the door han­dles, front lower grille, boot lid and lower rear bumper. Mean­while, the Trend­line de­riv­a­tives are now of­fered with colour-coded side mir­rors and door han­dles. The in­di­ca­tors, which were pre­vi­ously on the fend­ers, have been in­te­grated into the side mir­rors. Four new colours have also been added to the new Polo sedan model range. The new colours are Ti­ta­nium Beige metal­lic, Night Blue metal­lic, Car­bon Steel metal­lic and Tof­fee Brown metal­lic.

The 1.6 TDI en­gine with 77 kW has been re­placed with 1.5 TDI. The new en­gine also de­liv­ers 77 kW of power.

The new Polo sedan can be cus­tomised with the fol­low­ing con­ve­nience op­tional fea­tures, namely, rear park dis­tance con­trol, cruise con­trol (stan­dard in Com­fort­line de­riv­a­tives) and rain sen­sor with auto dim­ming in­te­rior mir­ror (only avail­able in Com­fort­line de­riv­a­tives).

In ad­di­tion to the stan­dard ser­vice plan of three years/45 000km, the new Polo Sedan model range also comes stan­dard with three years/120 000km and a 12-year Anti Cor­ro­sion war­ranty. The ser­vice in­ter­val is 15 000 km. — WR.
