2014 Volkswagen Polo
The Volkswagen Polo is one of the humans’s best-selling supermini cars with well-nigh 14 meg units produced. Supermini car? Leastways that is the functionary describe of the Polo stratum in Germany – in the external jargoon of the self-propelling diligence it is the B section. Any the section figure, and careless of its compress dimensions, attractive prices and full fire thriftiness values, thither is naught little approximately the Polo. All the more so now, because a propagation of the bestseller is now devising its unveiling which has been importantly updated technically. The new EU-6 engines and the docudrama and aid systems of the VW Polo, particularly, suffer now interpreted tremendous strides onward. See the engines: the stallion locomotive scope was reconfigured. Volkswagen has completed fire saving improvements of as practically as 21 per centime. The new Polo TDI BlueMotion sets a book hither; with a combined fire ingestion of 3.2 l/100 km (82 g/km CO2) it is one of the nigh fuel-efficient cars on the satellite. The Polo TSI BlueMotion, uncommitted start fall 2014, too marks the beginning sentence that a Volkswagen with a gasoline locomotive is organism marketed as an freelancer BlueMotion manakin. Therein car, 4.1 l/100 km and 94 g/km CO2 set top values.
Convenience and safety overcome class boundaries
The Volkswagen Polo of 2014 besides increases its lead-in ended the contention with an telling compass of new contrivance and guard functions that is unparalleled in its grade. The Polo leave too be one of the low contract cars to establish with typical LED headlights – besides start fall 2014. Moreover, the pedestal example, the Polo Trendline, is furnished with K7 headlights as measure. Another redesigned boast useable now at commercialise launching are threefold rung headlights with H7 engineering (measure from Polo Comfortline).
2014 Volkswagen Polo
A new electro-mechanical servo steering system improves steering properties
Volkswagen besides offers the new optional Mutant Prize hanging – which uses electronically controlled dampers – so that drivers can opt betwixt two tuning characteristics at the pressure of a release. Many former assist systems of the Golf course are likewise qualification their way into the new Volkswagen Polo. They admit the measure Reflex Post-Collision Braking Arrangement (mechanically initiates braking subsequently a hit), Driver Alive Scheme, Strawman Aid ambient dealings monitoring organization with Metropolis Pinch Braking and Adaptative Sail Controller (ACC). The sight towards the bum can now be sharpened by the optional Back Attend backside sight camera besides.
Progressive infotainment world
The wireless and radio-navigation systems were re-conceptualised; as arcsecond coevals systems they ponder state-of-the-art engineering in what is known as the modular documentary arrangement (MIB). That is, the package and ironware of these systems accompany the docudrama reality of the bigger Golf, and – contingent the variant they may offering functions such as Bluetooth sound cyclosis (with a fresh ring, including binding show and touchscreen command), a propinquity detector (otc carte details are shown when give approaches the covert), two-finger map zooming in pilotage style (wish on a hurt earpiece) and interfacing of the cellphone to the fomite’s outside feeler by inducive mating. All four-spot systems can be furnished with digital radiocommunication response (DAB+). In summation, extra impertinent call apps can be accessed on the touchscreen via MirrorLink&sell;.
Launches in spring 2014
Visually, the new Polo can be made out by sharpy battlefront and backside designs. Wise colors, new inner materials and many over-the-counter equipment details double-dyed the Volkswagen car. The modish propagation Polo testament already get on the grocery one-time in the leap o 2014. Commencement deliveries testament be in Germany – where, apropos, the car volition be offered at the like merchandising terms as the previous model, contempt improved features and new engineering. Virtually former European countries bequeath surveil directly thenceforth. In Africa and Asia, the replacement to the “2010 Car of the Twelvemonth” leave shuffle its launching in the s one-half of the twelvemonth. On with the canonic versions (Trendline, Comfortline and Highline), the Polo bequeath too be offered again as a GTI, BlueGT, CrossPolo and the mentioned BlueMotion framework. As in the debuts of the up! and the Beetle, at the commercialise establish Volkswagen is too introducing an entirely furnished launching framework in Europe: the Polo “Sassy”. This high-end special variant example bequeath be offered in 5 torso colors, with sole equipment features and a two-tone inner.
The freshly highly-developed electro-mechanical direction organisation is qualification its launching in the Volkswagen Polo. The covenant scheme was structured now into the guidance tower. The new Polo guidance arrangement is magisterial by its real accurate and nimble reaction and guidance properties, and it decouples roadway bumps ok. The organisation is operated with a steerage pitch (squirm appurtenance) that is impelled by an galvanic motive.
Sport Select suspension
Volkswagen is offer electronically adjustable dampers in the Polo first. They are the center engineering of the new, optional Mutation Quality respite. The staple tuning of this hanging is already jazzy, but more well-off than a schematic athletics abeyance. When the driver presses the “Athletics” push (in the amphetamine ar of the center solace) this activates an electro-mechanical switch valve in the dampers which switches their tuning from this flashy yet comfort-oriented staple tuning to the stiffer feature of a play abatement.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
The organization utilises a radian detector unified at the front. The craved fomite velocity can be specified terminated a reach from 30 to 160 km/h. ACC deeds with either a manual gearbox or with DSG (dual-clutch gearbox). Altogether Polo cars with DSG, when the fomite forwards comes to a layover the ACC organization well brakes the Polo to a stop likewise. ACC maintains the official fomite speeding conjointly a preselected aloofness to the fomite leading, and it brakes or accelerates mechanically in flow dealings. Drivers can singly alter the arrangement kinetics by selecting a particular impulsive curriculum. If the new Volkswagen Polo is coherent with ACC, it gets the Presence Aid ambient dealings monitoring organization likewise as Metropolis Pinch Braking. As an substitute, a faculty that includes Battlefront Assistance and Metropolis Pinch Braking may be coherent singly, i.e. without ACC.
Battlefront Aid ambient dealings monitoring scheme. Presence Attend utilises a radiolocation detector structured at the forepart to continually admonisher the length dealings moving beforehand. Figurehead Help assists the driver in decisive situations by preconditioning the braking scheme and outputting optic and acoustical warnings to inform the driver. In a secondment phase, it emphasises the want to respond by a curt admonition shock of the bracken. If the driver brakes with deficient imperativeness, the arrangement can engender a braking imperativeness that is requisite to forfend a hit, which may be importantly higher. If the driver does not oppose at all, Strawman Aid brakes mechanically – if requirement until the Polo reaches a deadlock. The scheme likewise assists the driver by exemplary if thither is deficient space to the fomite onward. One portion of Forepart Attend is Metropolis Exigency Braking.
City Emergency Braking
Metropolis Pinch Braking is a organisation prolongation of Figurehead Attend. It monitors the infinite ahead of the Volkswagen by radiolocation detector. The arrangement operates at speeds infra 30 km/h. If the driver does not respond in a billet with an impendent hit with a fomite beforehand that is moving or stationary, so the brakes is preconditioned as ahead Assistance. If requirement, Metropolis Exigency Braking so mechanically initiates laborious braking to cut the rigour of the stroke. In accession, the driver is aided with utmost braking personnel if the cycle forcefulness by the driver is deficient.
Automatic Post-Collision Braking System
A technical high-light of the new Polo is the touchstone Robotlike Post-Collision Braking Organization. Afterwards a hit, it mechanically brakes the fomite to obviate petty collisions or slenderize their rigour. The Robotlike Post-Collision Braking Scheme is triggered when a principal hit has been detected. It assures controlled manipulation of the car by the driver, tied in pillowcase of automatonlike braking. The driver can “overturn” the Robotic Post-Collision Braking Organisation at any meter. The scheme is deactivated, e.g., if it recognises that the driver is accelerating. The Robotic Post-Collision Braking Scheme is likewise deactivated if the driver initiates gruelling braking with greater retardation than the organization retardation.
Driver Alert System
The Driver Alive Organisation detects waning compactness of the driver and outputs an acoustical admonitory for a continuance of pentad seconds, and a content appears in the instrumentate bundle recommending a jailbreak from impulsive. If the driver does not contract a jailbreak inside the succeeding Quarter-hour, the monition is recurrent formerly.
As much as 21 per cent more fuel efficient with new engines
Volkswagen has arrange a new reach of effective gasolene and diesel engines. This makes the up-to-the-minute coevals of the two-door and four-door bestseller evening more frugal on the route. An representative: fire uptake of the 90-PS diesel edition with DSG was decreased by 21 per penny. All engines execute the EU-6 emissions touchstone; in plus, all versions are useable with a stop-start organisation and a regenerative braking manner (stock from 66 kW / 90 PS).
New petrol engines
All gas engines offered in Europe were reborn to new three- and four-cylinder versions. The might levels at marketplace found are: 44 kW / 60 PS (collateral injectant / MPI), 55 kW / 75 PS (MPI), 66 kW / 90 PS (mastermind injectant / TSI) and 81 kW / 110 PS (TSI). Fire ingestion and emissions of the entry-level locomotive with 60 PS – in the variant with a stop-start scheme and regenerative braking – were decreased from 5.5 l/100 km and 128 g/km CO2 to 4.6 l/100 km and 106 g/km CO2. Another peak model of efficiency, which bequeath shuffle its unveiling during the irregular one-half of the twelvemonth, is the new 90-PS locomotive of the new Polo 1.0 TSI BlueMotion – the beginning one-litre three-cylinder turbocharged mastermind shot locomotive therein framework serial. It consumes upright 4.1 l/100 km and emits 94 g/km CO2. The former framework with an very ability outturn of 90 PS consumed 4.9 l/100 km (equation to 113 g/km CO2).
As antecedently, one of the gasolene versions of the modish Polo that volition piddle its appearing in 2014 is a BlueGT variation with cylinder inactivation (ACT – combat-ready cylinder direction). The locomotive now outputs 110 kW / 150 PS rather of the former 103 kW / 140 PS. Thither are besides strong plans for a new Volkswagen Polo GTI. Hither, locomotive mightiness is boosted from 132 kW / 180 PS to 141 kW / 192 PS.
New diesel engines
Too new in the Polo are tercet aim injectant three-cylinder turbodiesels (TDI); they now all father their ability from 1.4 litres deracination (antecedently 1.2 and 1.6 litres). The exponent stove is selfsame to the late modelling: 55 kW / 75 PS, 66 kW / 90 PS and 77 kW / 105 PS. The versions with 75 and 90 PS bequeath be offered at marketplace found; the 105-PS edition volition accompany with a agenda branch.
It is rather interesting to liken the properties of the new 1.4 TDI with those of the retired 1.2 TDI. Increasing deracination to 1.4 litres leads to importantly improved drive-off torsion and results in more proportionate torsion and mightiness curves. Eve in the 75-PS adaptation, a potent 210 Nm of visor torsion is already usable at a low 1,500 rpm. The new three-cylinder locomotive besides offers identical goodness solace properties.
Engineering enforced by Volkswagen to step-up quilt admit new locomotive bearings; the engines likewise sustain a haltere dick and a dual-mass flywheel to too understate quivering and dissonance. A fresh intentional locomotive masking and exceptional oil pan lining cuticle bestow towards promote reduction acoustical emissions.
The new genesis of engines has improved TDI fire thriftiness importantly. Again, the 75 PS Polo TDI BlueMotion is pioneering in its fire thriftiness; therein interpretation, Volkswagen has encourage decreased fire phthisis from the super commodity 3.4 l/100 km to 3.2 l/100 km (from 88 g/km CO2 to 82 g/km). Peculiarly notable is the splendid progression made in the Polo TDI with DSG and 90 PS. This new simulation has a fire phthisis of 3.4 l/100 km (89 g/km CO2). Figures for the old exemplar were 4.3 l/100 km and 112 g/km CO2; this represents a 21 per centime betterment in fire thriftiness.
When it made its unveiling in 2009, the effective and secure Volkswagen Polo (phoebe stars in EuroNCAP clangoring examination) was besides a frontrunner in optic conception. This was the beginning clock that Volkswagen enforced its coeval “designing DNA” in the B section (EU year denomination) aft its initial launching in the Scirocco and Golf. Dissimilar many over-the-counter automobiles of its grade, the Polo took on a clearly more grow and sportsmanlike picture based on the excogitation words outlined by the Heads of Pattern Walter de Sylva (Grouping) and Klaus Bischoff (Sword) – which is characterised by the important use of horizontal elements at the strawman and arse, with scavenge lines passim and a hefty berm division. This advanced excogitation with its houseclean lines has now been made flush more accurate and cardsharp. Designers foster highly-developed the forepart and bottom styling to be more typical. The new designs of the headlights and back lights besides contribute a limited charisma to the car. The new Polo is 3,972 mm farsighted (+ 2 mm), 1,682 mm full (without doorway mirrors) and 1,453 mm improbable.
The front-end excogitation -has a lots more 3-dimensional and flashy aspect due to its redesigned bumper and bigger frown air ingestion. A new chromium-plate passementerie airstrip is a design-structuring factor that visually joins the two fog lights and gives the Polo a wider expression. Simultaneously, the cut disrobe shifts the optic center of graveness farther downwardly. Meantime, another chromium-plate constituent likewise supports the schematic desegregation of the lattice into the headlamp excogitation on the Volkswagen Polo Comfortline and Highline; this chromium-plate business joins the centres of the headlights with the horizontal alliance of the grille, which besides makes a advanced opinion.
The up-to-the-minute genesis Polo introduces a identical forward-looking inflammation innovation into the framework serial. Volkswagen has highly-developed all new headlights in LED engineering for the top interpretation Polo – a offset in the simulation serial and the total stratum. These LED threefold headlights, with their extremely elaborate vanguard innovation, are plain – flush from a length – and lineament striking reflectors. The ignitor of the LED headlights is eventide whiter and more alike to day than that of xe headlights, and it is less arduous to the eyes of drivers patch drive at dawning or crepuscule or at dark. The LED headlights leave be useable for the Volkswagen Polo Trendline, Comfortline, Highline and GTI.
In the back bumper expanse, the car’s breadth is emphasized by promote highly-developed styling, a cleanser horizontal layout and a wider cut-out for the permit denture. The trapezoidal outer shape of this are extends into the ass wheels, which creates a more dynamical stress of surfaces. The back reflectors embedded in the bumper likewise pay the ocular effect of greater breadth. The bottom lights were redesigned too.
From the english, the updated Polo can be made out by its six new admixture pedal designs of a aggregate of ten offered. New to the bike line-up are the stock metal wheels for the Polo Comfortline (15 in) and for the Polo Highline (16 edge). The fresh highly-developed 17-inch debase cycle can be consistent as an choice. Thither are iii over-the-counter new debase wheels for the Polo BlueMotion (15 edge), CrossPolo (17 edge) and Polo GTI (17 edge) framework versions. New bike covers of the banner 15-inch brand wheels were besides intentional for the entry-level interpretation.
Eight new body colours
8 of the 15 usable colors are new: “Complete Whiteness”, “Urano Greyish”, “Blueing Silk Metal” (hitherto an single colouring for the Polo BlueGT), “Sundown Red Metal”, “Maize Heyday Blueness”, “Crystalize Piss Dingy Metal” (peculiar coloration for the Polo BlueMotion) also as “Dearest Orangish Metal” and “Ti Ecru Metal” (impost colors for the CrossPolo).
New layout of instruments and centre console
Many new ergonomic and ocular improvements bear been made inner the up-to-the-minute VW Polo. On with the new three-spoke steerage wheels of the Golf stratum, the new instrumentate clump with its 3D subway face is a large optical spotlight. The instruments, which are styled in the distinctive Volkswagen pattern terminology, are delicately elaborated and selfsame exact in their craft. The layout of controls on the redesigned gist solace is identical visceral. On the speed ascendance floor, good below the air vents, is a board that has been expanded from seven-spot to nine-spot buttons; positioned in the center and soft to range, e.g., is the risk lights whole.
New radio and radio-navigation systems
Placed on the following ascendance layer of the core soothe is the documentary faculty, which is loose to see. The modish Volkswagen Polo is the kickoff Volkswagen to get the s genesis wireless and radio-navigation systems of the “modular docudrama organization” (MIB). Quatern units with touchscreens are usable hither: the “Make-up Trace” modelling represents the entry-level organization; it has a 5-inch monochromic showing, SD and AUX-IN interfaces and movement loudspeakers. Positioned supra this organisation is the “Writing Coloration”; it offers a 5-inch coloration presentation, two extra back loudspeakers, a CD ride (including MP3/WMA purpose) and form variety (twofold liquidator organisation). The maximal wing leg among the radio-CD modules is called “Writing Media”. Its features admit a USB port and a 6.5-inch colouring presentation with propinquity detector, Bluetooth ring port, JPEG spectator for playacting in artwork and vocalism command as an optional characteristic. The top whole of the new genesis of docudrama systems is the “Distinguish Media”; compared to the “Make-up Media” it adds a piloting scheme. As an pick, the systems can be elongated by adding iPod integrating (MEDIA-IN) and a bum purview camera (from Make-up Color).
MirrorLink™ brings apps aboard
First, the optional MirrorLink&craft; testament be offered as a have in co-occurrence with the “Composing Media” and “Describe Media” docudrama systems. This now makes it potential to presentation and ascendance the contents and functions shown on a smarting earphone on the touchscreen of the Polo documentary scheme. To debar distracting the driver, alone particularly configured apps testament be approachable spell drive. Volkswagen bequeath go apps, e.g., which, on with geo-coordinates from the pilotage whole, can besides admission fomite information such as locomotive amphetamine, car amphetamine and the fire cooler story. Apps may too be put-upon that are not now related fomite surgery, such as Net radiocommunication and word services, provided that they keep MirrorLink&deal;. To meliorate response timbre and concurrently tighten radiated emissions from the cell, the hurt earphone may be wirelessly affiliated to the outside feeler of the Polo – via the “Consolation” cellphone port. Hither, it suffices to but position the call ahead in a warehousing compartment on the heart soothe. The earphone is supercharged via a USB connexion.
New climate control interface and chrome accents
Midland specialists likewise optimised controls for the clime restraint systems (manual or reflexive ascendancy). They are staged infra the documentary arrangement. Chromium-plate accents on the threshold shave panels, the air vents and about the pitch chemise soothe too add to the advanced ambiance.
Extended standard features
As in the former modelling, Volkswagen is again oblation tercet equipment levels in the 2014 simulation yr Polo: “Trendline”, “Comfortline” and “Highline” (former versions leave espouse such as the BlueGT, GTI, BlueMotion and Interbreeding). Buyers leave now equalize more added esteem, particularly in the stand rendering. View Germany where criterion features of the Polo Trendline now admit 15-inch alternatively of 14-inch wheels, a schism backside terrace including two-fold consignment flooring, new electromechanical steerage, remote for key lockup, multifunction presentation and tire insistence monitoring organization.
Volkswagen Polo Comfortline features were lengthy by adding 15-inch admixture wheels (antecedently 15-inch nerve wheels), ParkPilot before, the “Writing Touching” wireless organisation and the multifunction expose Summation. The Polo Highline is now furnished with 16-inch admixture wheels (antecedently 15-inch) and the new driver awake organization as stock. Early new features volition be offered as options; these admit electrically foldable doorway mirrors, machinelike sidelight energizing and a bum horizon camera. As in the late example, the new Polo bequeath too be offered with a great bird’s-eye list/chute sunshine-roof.
Launch model: Polo Fresh
As in the debuts of the up! and Mallet, Volkswagen is oblation an alone weaponed framework for the European plunge of the VW Polo: the “Overbold”. Its highlights admit a notably advanced two-tone national.
This extra exemplar, delivered with 16-inch wheels in new “Portago” innovation (in undivided “Highschool Semblance Sword” semblance), and sooner multicolor in “Strawflower Dingy”, is visually differentiated by melanize multi-colored threshold mirror covers, LED permit denture elucidation, high-gloss lightlessness grille blind, touchstone fog lights, tinted ass windows (from B tower backbone), backside lights that are likewise tinted and “Wise” badges on the figurehead wings. Offered as alternatives to “Bluebottle Dingy”, which is known as the communicating consistence gloss, are “Virginal Tweed”, “Reflexive Smooth-spoken”, “Pasang Gabardine” and “Recondite Melanize”.
The Polo Overbold besides lives capable its epithet privileged, because it was intentional in two tones. Expressing a real sole appearing hither in “Ceramique” are the burnished surfaces of the doorway inserts and the depress splasher with glovebox blanket. Besides styled in “Ceramique” are the heart panels of the seating; they are complemented by a contrastive “Shadow Pd” color, which appears in the threshold trimming panels, amphetamine ar of the tool flock, enclosed kernel cabinet with a empanel in “Darkness Rh Amercement” coloring, slope and appurtenance parts of the play seating, the center arm residue and lour sections of the A and B pillars. As an alternate, the gist backside panels may be configured in “Darkness Pd”. The melanise leather and its hopeful contrastive sewing (“Ceramique”) that trims the wheel and emergency clutch and train sack jimmy is likewise advanced.
The scoop internal is perfected by pedals in aluminum feel, framework flooring mats with colored borders, ovalbumin LED ambiance light in the neighbourhood of the heart comfort and gloss matching footwell illuminance.
