Available at VW retailers from 27 January to 14 February inclusive, Volkswagen UK has launched the Polo Event, a multi-incentive way to buy a new Polo. A deposit contribution with inclusive insurance provides the foundation of this new pair of special offers, with the addition of a free service plan and a discount on the Polo Style Pack for prospective customers.
A £1400 deposit contribution is available to those who opt for a Volkswagen Financial Services’ Solutions Personal Contract Plan at 6.2 per cent APR representative (1). Volkswagen states that the savings potential on Polo models under the Polo Event promotion is enhanced by the offer of one year’s free insurance which is included in the offer (2).
During the duration of the Polo Event, all customers who order a new Polo will benefit from a free service plan, too, which includes the first two services (3). The £318* Polo Style Pack will also be discounted to by £82 to £236* during the special promotion period. Consisting of stainless steel door trims and tyre valve caps, tailgate chrome strip finisher and chrome exhaust trim, the Style Pack adds sports-orientated flourishes to the Polo’s smart shape.
As standard, every Polo model in the range features Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity, a five-inch Composition Colour touchscreen infotainment system, and Electronic Stability Control. Entry-level S models start at £11,830* before the Polo Event offer is applied. Move up to Match Edition cars – from £13,315* – and automatic wipers, cruise control, parking sensors, and a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system with App-Connect are all standard.
300-watt sound system
The £14,215* Polo Beats meanwhile features a 300-watt sound system with an eight-channel amplifier, while the £16,840 OTR SEL boasts LED headlights, 16-inch ‘Rivazza’ alloy wheels. The £16,760* Polo R-Line meanwhile features an ‘R-Line’ styling pack for added visual appeal. The ultimate sports Polo, the 189bhp £19,430* GTI, gets from 0 to 62mph in just 6.7 seconds, and is identified by its honeycomb and red-trimmed grille, 17-inch ‘Parabolica’ alloy wheels, as well as red brake calipers.
The Polo GTI’s eco-adversary, the BlueMotion, is powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which produces just 98g/km** of CO2, and has claimed combined cycle economy of 67.3mpg**. The Polo BlueMotion starts at £15,310*. The model with one eye on performance and economy, the 147bhp £18,440* Polo BlueGT has cylinder deactivation technology which shuts down two of the engine’s cylinders on light loads to keep fuel consumption low at a claimed 58.9mpg**.
