For the first time, Volkswagen Middle East has launched a Polo Sedan, joining the Jetta, Passat and completing its saloon portfolio. The Polo is made in Volkswagen India’s Pune factory, and comes with a 104bhp 1.6-litre engine with a six-speed automatic gearbox. Other equipment includes 15-inch alloy wheels, twin airbags, ABs, and central locking with keyless entry. The notchback-styled Polo Sedan is 4384mm long, 1466mm tall and 1699mm wide, and is based on the same model which is sold in Russia, South Africa, and India as the Vento. The Polo Sedan offers 455 litres of boot space and has an extended wheelbase which is 82mm longer than the European Polo hatchback.
Volkswagen Middle East describes the Polo Sedan as ‘sleek, spacious and comfortable delivering luxury and innovation while being affordable.’ ‘The new Polo Sedan is the perfect combination of German engineering with optimum comfort and driving characteristics,’ says Marcus Butros, Sales Director, Volkswagen Middle East. ‘The Polo Sedan completes our sedan segment within the market following the Jetta and Passat and offers high safety standards, driving comfort, sleek styling and affordable innovation.’ The Polo Sedan is available in S and SE trims and should appear in Saudi Arabia, UAE and GCC showrooms this month. Prices will be announced shortly.
