The engine range will feature VW’s new 1.2L three-cylinder compact family, developing between 60 and 105hp, as well as an 85hp 1.4L unit and a 170hp 1.4L TSI mill planned for the GTI. Diesel fans will be able to choose from a range of engines displacing between 1.4 and 1.6L and developing between 75 and 135hp. Transmission options will include five and six-speed manuals plus a six-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox.
In addition to the conventional petrol and diesel models, VW will also offer a new hybrid option. Due to the low cost of the Polo, the hybrid system is likely to a mild version that utilizes regenerative braking and electronically controlled components in similar fashion to BMW’s EfficientDynamics technology.
