Volkswagen Polo, in its current iteration, is due to be replaced in 2018. Production is expected to start late in 2017 with a launch in the first quarter of 2018, dependent on an effective run out of the current model. To achieve a smooth reduction, Volkswagen has introduced a couple of special models to assist.
Manufacturers reduce prices to effect a run-out, but against the grain, Volkswagen historically uses a combination of price and special editions. This time around, VW have just introduced the Polo Urban and Urban+ replacing the Trendline and Comfortline.
Here’s what the Volkswagen Public Relations department have to say about this
“Volkswagen Group Australia has replaced its outgoing Polo and Trendline and Comfortline variants with two purpose-built editions.
The Polo Urban and Urban+ special models carry the award-winning city hatchback until the arrival in March of the new from the wheels up Generation Six Polo.
Both new variants retain the drive away pricing of the outgoing Trendline and Comfortline.
Supplanting the Trendline, the Polo Urban adds $1500 worth of additional features. The Urban adds 15″ Tosca alloys, leather steering wheel, parking brake and gear shift knob, Multi-Function Display (MFD), illuminated vanity mirrors and Urban badging.
Coming in for the Comfortline, the Urban+ adds more than $3000 in value to become the premium Polo. It includes 16″ Portago alloys, front fog lights, dark tinted windows, automatic headlights, driver fatigue detection, rain sensing wipers, and Urban+ badging. Enhanced interior treatment includes heated comfort sport front seats with Alcantara trim, climate control air conditioning, auto dimming rear view mirror, front foot well lighting and chrome and silver decorative trim highlights.
A new Driver Assistance Package ($1800) available for the Urban+, features Front Assist with City Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Discover Media navigation system and parking distance sensors for front and rear. Metallic or pearlescent paint adds $500. The palette now includes Flash Red from the Polo GTI.
Both variants run Volkswagen’s 1.2-litre turbo four, tuned for 66kW/160Nm in the Urban and 81kW/175Nm in the Urban+.
