Volkswagen to have a parade of Polo debuts in Geneva

Volkswagen is preparing to unveil four different Polo models at the Geneva Motor Show next week — the Polo TSI BlueMotion, Polo TDI BlueMotion, Polo BlueGT and CrossPolo.

The popular subcompact, which isn’t sold in Canada, gets a host of new engines, a new steering system, an improved infotainment system, and a few driving assistants not typically found on cars in its class including a standard collision avoidance system and optional adaptive cruise control and other driver alert systems.

Although fuel economy has been improved across the whole Polo range, VW claims its new three-cylinder Polo TSI and TDI BlueMotion are the world’s most fuel-efficient five-seaters, consuming just 4.1 L/100 km and 3.1 L/100 km, respectively.

The Polo BlueGT will get active cylinder management, which helps reduce fuel consumption. Horsepower has also been bumped up to 147 hp. The CrossPolo has an off-road look while maintaining civilized driving manners.

Stay tuned for coverage from Geneva all next week.
