Added value Volkswagen Polo Active now on sale in the UK from £18,100

Volkswagen UK has released a range of added value Active models, adding yet another option to the popular Polo family. Similar to the United models that went on sale in July 2020, unique ‘Active’ styling details and alloy wheels, and upgraded infotainment options are among the enhanced features offered.

Already on sale in Germany and based on the entry-level Match model, the Polo Active’s extra equipment would add £1,665 RRP to that car’s price tag, yet the Polo Active only costs £700 more.

‘Active’ badging
The newcomer also gains ambient lighting, automatic lights and wipers (as part of the Light & Sight pack), electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors, heated seats, ‘Matt Silver’ interior trim highlights, and stainless steel pedals. Externally, Active models are distinguished by ‘Active’ badging on the B-pillars, and ‘Active’-branded door sill protectors.

The Polo Active is available with a choice of 78bhp 1.0 ‘Evo’ and turbocharged 93bhp 1.0 TSI engines, with five-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearboxes on the more powerful models. Prices begin at £18,100 for the 78bhp version, rising to £20,395 for the 93bhp TSI DSG variant. Alongside the Polo, its closely related T-Cross sibling has also undergone the Active treatment, costing from £21,035. Other Active Volkswagens include the Golf, T-Roc, T-Roc Cabriolet and Tiguan.

Polo Active special edition jumps into Volkswagen Germany’s small car range

Volkswagen has announced a range of new Active special edition models that offer more generous equipment levels and unique features. Not to be confused with Ford’s more rugged and Active-branded editions of its standard models, the special VWs are only available on the German market. The Polo Active is just one.

The Polo Active features new 15-inch ‘Galway’ alloy wheels, ‘Active’ badging on the B-pillars, and ‘Active’-branded door sill trims. Inside, there is unique ‘Waveform’ trim, ambient lighting, and stainless steel pedals. The eight-inch ‘Ready 2 Discover’ colour infotainment system comes with DAB+ support as standard for ‘noise-free reception’ without an internet connection. The system can be upgraded to a full navigation set-up at a future date via the in-car shop app.

Active Plus package
Opt for the Active Plus package, 16-inch ‘Sebring’ alloy wheels, black mirror caps, wireless smartphone charging and Digital Cockpit Pro instruments are added. The Polo Active R-Line adds even more, with 17-inch ‘Bonneville’ rims and R-Line-styled bumpers and rear spoiler.

Polo Active prices start at €19,750 for the 78bhp 1.0-litre model. A pair of 1.0 TSI engines with 93bhp come with five-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearboxes and another brace of 1.0 TSIs offer 108bhp, the manual car fitted with six ratios. An 88bhp six-speed 1.0 TGI compressed natural gas (CNG) version rounds out the range, all of which can be ordered on Volkswagen’s German website.

In addition to the Polo, Active editions of the Up, T-Cross, Golf, T-Roc, T-Roc Cabriolet, Tiguan, Touran and Sharan are also available. A five-year warranty is standard on all.

Volkswagen adds swagger to Polo Vivo with Mswenko special edition

Riding on a decade of success, a new special edition derivative of the Polo Vivo has been launched in South Africa. The Polo Vivo Mswenko has been named after the isZulu word for ‘swag’, which is an expression of attitude and confidence in the Bantu language of the Zulus. Aimed at ‘dynamic and young at heart’ buyers, the R246,900 Polo Vivo Mswenko has some eye-catching features.

Outside, there are ‘Mswenko’ (pronounced ‘m-swe-nkoh’) diamond door decals, a black roof, coloured mirror caps, 16-inch anthracite ‘Portago’ alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, and a chrome exhaust tip. Inside, there are even more statement features. The most notable change over a standard Polo Vivo are the very bright ‘Ocean Blue’ seats, but there is also anthracite headlining, silver dashboard inserts, six speakers, a leather-trimmed multi-function steering wheel and gear knob, and App Connect.

Style and attitude
Along with that little lot, and the available four colours – Limestone Grey, Pure White, Reef Blue, and Reflex Silver – the Polo Vivo Mswenko should easily live up to the ‘mswenko’ tag. In South Africa, a self-confident and stylish person is said to have ‘swag’. The word ‘mswenko’, which is unique to South Africa, also refers to a person’s style, attitude and general demeanour.

In Volkswagen South Africa dealers from October 2020, the Polo Vivo Mswenko is based on the 1.4-litre 63kW Polo Vivo Comfortline, and costs R246,900. A three-year/120,000km warranty is standard, along with a six-year anti-corrosion warranty. A Volkswagen Maintenance Plan as well as a Volkswagen Service Plan are available as options, and service intervals are 15,000kms.

Since its introduction in March 2010, the Volkswagen Polo Vivo has been the most popular car in South Africa, with over 261,285 registered. Originally based on the fourth-generation European Polo, the Vivo took the shape of the fifth-generation Polo in February 2018. One of the reasons for its success may be that its cost of ownership over a three-year cycle makes it one of the most affordable cars to own in the South African market. Proof that swag confidence is more than style deep.

A set of 16-inch alloy ‘Portago’ wheels borrowed from the Indian-market Polo GT also feature.

High level of equipment
Based on the Polo and Vento Highline Plus, the TSI Editions share the a similar high level of equipment.

When compared to the Highline Plus models, the Polo TSI Edition is priced at Rs 13,000 less, while the Vento TSI Edition represents a saving of Rs 1 lakh over the Vento Highline Plus.

Following its debut at the Vivonation music festival in March, the Polo Vivo Sound Edition special has been officially announced for sale by Volkswagen South Africa.

Only available in Limestone Grey, Pure White and Reef Blue paint finishes, the Vivo Sound Edition also gets anthracite-coloured 16-inch Rivazza alloy wheels. Energetic Orange mirror caps and special ‘equaliser’ (how 1980s!) graphics on the doors and tailgate also mark out the Vivo Sound Edition as something special.

An optional R2,500 ‘Black’ interior styling package can also be chosen to make the Vivo Sound Edition stand out even more, consisting of anthracite headlining, sun visors and trim, privacy glass for the rear windows as well as a leather steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake grip.

‘Premium sound system’
Aimed at younger drivers, the latest version of South Africa’s most popular passenger car joins a model range that has sold 17,672 units up until the end of July 2019. ‘We are confident that the addition of a special premium sound system in the Polo Vivo will appeal to young customers that are passionate about quality sound when they are listening to music,’ said Martina Biene, Head of Sales and Marketing for the Volkswagen Brand.

A three-year/120,000km warranty and a six-year anti-corrosion guarantee are standard, with Volkswagen Maintenance and Volkswagen Service Plans available at additional cost. Service intervals for the Polo Vivo Sound Edition are every 15,000km.

The Polo Vivo has been the most popular car in South Africa for most of the last nine years and replaced the Citi Golf in 2010 as Volkswagen South Africa’s entry-level model. A budget hatchback which traditionally sits under the most recently-introduced version of the Polo, the second-generation Vivo was introduced in February 2018, based on the fifth-generation Polo.
