At the 79th Geneva Motor Show, VW rolled out the fifth generation version of their Polo model.
This will be the first Polo model that will be on sale in North America, and will be priced as a cheaper alternative to the Golf.
The overall exterior and interior styling of the Polo is very much like a slightly shrunken Golf, which is no bad thing.
For the European market, the Polo will be offered with seven engine choices, which include four-gasoline and three diesel options. Not yet known how many engines will be offered in North America.
The front-wheel drive Polo is available with three gearbox choices too, base models will get a five-speed manual, while higher trim models will get a six-speed manual. A seven-speed DSG (dual-clutch) semi-automatic will also be offered.
The new Polo will go into production by the end of March, and should be on sale globally by July.
