Currently reading: New Volkswagen Polo Match arrives as tech-heavy run-out model
Priced from £13,315, the Polo Match gets top-spec infotainment and more driver assist features as standard

The Volkswagen Polo Match is a tech-heavy, run-out model for the sixth generation hatchback, ahead of an all-new Polo arriving next year.

The final version of VW’s Ford Fiesta rival is priced from £13,315 and gets top-spec Car-Net App-Connect infotainment as standard. This includes Apple Carplay, Android Auto and Mirrorlink smartphone connectivity, as well as increased app compatibility that includes Spotify and Skype.

Additionally, VW’s own Call & Remind app, which allows the driver to make a to-do list while stationary in the car, is featured, as is Cam Connect, which can link to a GoPro Hero4 camera and display its image on the screen.

There are also heated door mirrors with electric folding mechanisms, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, air conditioning and automatic wipers, plus follow-me-home headlights, rear parking sensors and cruise control are all included.

The car sits on 15-inch alloy wheels as standard, and comes in three and five-door bodystyles.

It gets a choice of three engines producing between 59bhp and 89bhp. There are two petrols, a 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 1.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, plus one diesel, a 1.4-litre turbocharged diesel.

The 1.2 petrol comes with a choice of manual or DSG automatic transmissions. The rest are exclusively mated to the former.

The current Polo will be replaced by an all-new model in 2017. The car will be larger and come available in five-door guise.

The fifth-generation Volkswagen Polo has junior Golf looks, but is that enough?

Good amount of kit offered

Good amount of kit offered with the car....not so sure they are 15 inch wheels on the picture though!

No, I don't think they are. Interesting that the image shows a 3-door model, though, as VW are going to deprive those of us who may need one of these with the new model. VW say its down to declining demand for 3-door versions - is that really the case? I see plenty of recently registered 3-door small hatches on the road, and, when manufacturers are filling any weird and wonderful niche you may imagine, it makes you wonder why they can't afford to fit in a pretty mainstream model like this.
