New Volkswagen Polo Will Arrive in Showrooms before 2015
German automotive magazine, AutoZeitung, reports that the next-generation Volkswagen Polo will make it to showrooms some time before early 2015. The new Volkswagen Polo will be constructed over Volkswagen’s all-new ‘MQB’ platform that serves as the root for the next generation of lighter vehicles from the company. The newest car to use the ‘MQB’ platform was the Audi A3, and it is believed that the same will be used to build the next-generation Volkswagen Tiguan, and possibly even the Volkswagen Bulli, the company’s minivan concept.
While offering a much sleeker and bolder appearance when compared to the existing Polo model, the brand new Volkswagen Polo is expected to provide an additional five centimeters more in length at the wheelbase. It is also believed that the new model will be more spacious, and lighter (up to 36 kilogram), which should translate into noticeable fuel efficiency gains for the model. On a side note, since Volkswagen is already having trouble meeting the Volkswagen Polo’s global sales demand, we expect the release of a new Polo model to extend those wait times even longer.
