VW has announced the South African pricing for the new VW Polo – which will go on sale in January 2022.
The facelifted VW Polo range will start at R311,800 for the Polo 1.0 TSI.
The hatchback will be sold in Polo, Polo Life, Polo R-Line, and Polo GTI specifications.
The South African pricing for the 2022 VW Polo range is as follows:
- VW Polo 1.0 TSI 70kW Manual – R311,800
- VW Polo Life 1.0 TSI 70kW Manual – R350,000
- VW Polo GTI 2.0 TSI 147kW DSG – R489,400
At first, only the 70kW and GTI derivatives will be launched locally – followed by the 85kW models in March, whose prices are yet to be announced.
Each purchase of a 2022 VW Polo includes a 3-year/120,000km warranty and a 3-year/45,000km service plan.
The new VW Polo features redesigned front and rear bumpers, giving it a sportier look, along with front and rear LED lights across the range.
The interior of the popular hatchback was digitized, too, seeing fewer physical buttons and the fitment of a redesigned multifunction steering wheel and upgraded infotainment system.
In the entry-level Polo 70kW, standard equipment includes a 6.5-inch infotainment display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, fabric seats, 14-inch steel wheels, and all-round electric windows.
The Polo Life 70kW Manual then brings a digital instrument cluster, front and rear parking sensors, electric folding mirrors, lumbar support for both the front seats, and 16-inch “Torsby” wheels.
The Polo Life 85kW DSG offers a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with shifter paddles on top of the manual version’s features, as well as a higher engine output.
The new Polo R-Line 85kW is then fitted with exclusive bumpers and 16-inch “Valencia” wheels, along with an 8-inch infotainment display, wireless charging, and dual-zone climate control.
At the top-end, the Polo GTI comes standard with the same LED Matrix headlights fitted to the Golf 8 GTI, dynamic chassis control, dynamic cornering lights, and autonomous emergency braking with front assist – in addition to the features of the Polo R-Line.
The GTI also gets model-specific bumpers and 17-inch “Milton Keynes” alloy wheels.
Features like a rear-view camera, leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry, and three driver-assist and safety system packages can be optioned to certain models at an additional cost.
