2009 Polo: ‘Ready for another class’ TV commercial

Another week, another new Polo TV commercial. Volkswagen is clearly pushing the car relentlessly, this spot appearing in the car’s home market launch week in its home market 29 June. Partnering the ‘Neon’ spot that aired around the same time, the young and trendy still feature, with the Polo being the young and trendy transport of choice.

Volkswagen has also launched a technically amazing new configurator for the car. If you’re in Germany, choose your paint and wheels here.

2009 Polo: ‘Neon’ TV commercial

These hip young things have seen the light. There are no surprises for the demographic Volkswagen is aiming the new Polo at. Here’s the first proper commercial for the new Polo, which launches this week in Germany, and has attracted over 24,000 advance orders.

2009 Polo at Sniff Petrol

A little harsh I think. I think they’ve been sniffing too much petrol at Sniff Petrol. Yes, sensible the new Polo may be, but it is different to the bigger Golf, and has got a style of its own. Don’t they realise that the more daringly-styled new Ford Fiesta will date much quicker?

2009 Polo: more details released

2009 Volkswagen Polo: more details released
Fresh from its international press launch in Sardinia (the location for the Mk 2 Polo launch, fact fans), more details on the 2009 Volkswagen Polo have been released. Volkswagen has listed details on the three trim levels in Germany, more information on engines, and plans for the roll-out.
Mainland Europe is to get the car first, at the end of June, with other markets to follow. Cars for the UK are scheduled to land around September or October. Initial drive reports from the Italian outpost claim that the car is big-car impressive, but ultimately not as fun to steer as dynamic arch rival, the Fiesta. The same old story then; has Volkswagen missed a trick?
In other Polo-related news, Volkswagen has received over 13,000 advance orders for the new fifth-generation model (remember that the public hasn’t actually seen the car in the metal yet), and the rumour mill still reports that a deal for the US market has all but been done, although we’ll reserve judgment on that one until we hear a green a light has been given. It could well be true, though; the first UK road tests point to the top trim level in this country being ‘SEL’, which was used on the top-of-the-tree US Corrado a few years ago.
