VW Polo Sedan range gets new entry-level automatic model in South Africa – Pricing

VW has added a new entry-level automatic model to the popular Polo Sedan family in South Africa, bringing the total number of specifications up to four.

The VW entered the local market in September last year in three derivatives only, with the auto-box exclusively reserved for the top-end “Life” specification.

However, the new automatic variant is derived from the base Polo Sedan and retails for R377,000, confirmed our source at Duoporta vehicle information specialists, making the self-shifting gearbox R31,200 more accessible than it was before.

What you get

The new Polo Sedan sees a six-speed Tiptronic gearbox paired with a 1.6-litre petrol engine, with power output for the setup listed at 81kW and 152Nm.

Combined fuel consumption comes in at 6.5l/100km – only slightly higher than the manual’s 6.2l/100km – and it is capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in a leisurely 12.2 seconds before topping out at 187km/h.

The VW’s equipment list is filled with essentials such as 16-inch steel wheels with plastic covers, automatic Eco-LED headlights with daytime-running lights, remote central locking, a multi-info driver’s display, a multifunction steering wheel, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a 7-inch touchscreen with wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, eight speakers, manual airconditioning, and rear parking sensors.

Safety systems further take the form of a tyre-pressure monitoring system, electronic stability control, engine drag torque control, trailer stabilization, an electronic differential lock, ABS, and two airbags.

The Sedan’s footprint then measures 4,561mm long and 1,752mm wide, with a roofline sitting at 1,507mm, and its luggage compartment equates to a spacious 521 litres.


The pricing and model line-up of the expanded VW Polo Sedan range in South Africa are as follows:

Each purchase comes with a 3-year/120,000km warranty and a 3-year/45,000km service plan.
