Volkswagen has unveiled its new three-door Polo at the Frankfurt motor show next month.
The five-door model has already been launched, and the three-door model follows similar design traits. More pronounced rear windows feature to give the car a more aggressive stance, which VW claims makes the three-door Polo look lower and wider than it actually is.
It uses the same platform and has the same dimensions as the five-door model, but its will be larger and more spacious than the outgoing three-door model.
Standard equipment offered on all four trim levels – S, SE, Moda and SEL – includes four airbags, ABS, ESP and hydraulic brake assist, as well as a CD player, speed sensitive power steering and electric windows.
In SE trim, three-door Polos get full iPod connectivity, 15-inch alloys and body coloured door handles and mirrors.
Equipment on the top-spec SEL includes 16-inch alloy wheels, foglights, a multifunction computer and leather trim on the handbrake, steering wheel and gearshift.
At launch, two diesel and four petrol engines will be available. Two normally aspirated 1.2-litre petrol engines will be available with 59bhp and 69bhp, as well as a 1.4-litre unit with 84bhp.
Two common-rail 1.6-litre TDI engines are available with 74bhp and 89 bhp, while the flagship engine is a new 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which produces 104bhp.
Prices start at £9400 for a three-door Polo in S trim, rising to £14,000 for the SEL model.
