Crossing the Nullarbor .....
Many of the assistance systems of the Golf are now making their way into the new Polo. They include the standard
Multi-Collision Braking System (automatically initiates braking of the vehicle that had an accident in order to prevent a
subsequent collision) as well as an optional Driver Comfort Package which includes Driver Fatigue Detection System,
“Front Assist” ambient traffic monitoring system with City Emergency Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). The new
Polo also increases its edge over the competition with a range of new convenience and safety functions that are unique in
the light car segment. A new electro-mechanical power steering improves steering properties.
The radio system was also redesigned; it reflects technology in what is known as the modular infotainment system
(MIB). The software and hardware of the system follows the infotainment technologies of the larger Golf, and offers
functions such as Bluetooth audio streaming in both (Polo Trendline and Comfortline) specifications.
Visually, the new VW Polo can be identified by sharper front and rear designs. Fresh colours, new interior materials
and other equipment details improve the model.

Two equipment lines
As in the previous model, Volkswagen is once again offering two equipment levels in the 2014 model year Polo:
“Trendline” and “Comfortline”.
Buyers will now get improved value, especially in this entry version. For example, standard features of the Polo
Trendline includes BlueMotion Technology, new electromechanical steering, cruise control and composition colour audio
unit. In its interior, the entry-level model is characterised by various applications in black as well as new seat
materials in the “Grip” design. Polo Trendline is also given extensive safety and comfort equipment. For example, in
addition to the ABS, the ESP electronic stabilisation programme, including hill start assistant, is standard. Passive
safety is also a feature: in addition to the front airbags, side airbag and curtain airbags, the Polo comes with five
head restraints, five three-point belts (height-adjustable in the front), belt tensioners and belt force limiters in the
front as well as Isofix fittings for child seats (on the outside of the rear seats). The front head restraints have been
designed in such a way that they counteract whiplash. Comfort focused standard equipment in this line includes, among
other things, electric windows, central locking with wireless remote control, asymmetrically split folding rear seats,
double cargo floor, cargo area cover, height-adjustable driver’s seat, driver’s and passenger’s vanity mirrors in the sun
shades and tinted heat insulating glass.
New levels of sophistication. The Polo Comfortline features were extended by 15-inch “Estrada” alloy wheels and the
“PLUS” multifunction display. Beyond that, the “Comfortline” equipment line reveals its identity on the exterior by a
chrome trim around the air inlet. In terms of comfort, features such as electrically adjustable and heated wing mirrors,
a passenger’s seat that is height-adjustable, various trims in aluminium look (instruments, air nozzles, light turn
switch, radio and climate controls) and storage pockets on the backs of the front seats are standard. Seating inthe Polo
Comfortline features “Rail” design.
Optional Driving Comfort Package
For customers who wish to enhance their Polo Comfortline, the optional Driving Comfort Package offers a range of
comfort and assistance systems more commonly found on vehicles in the luxury car category. The Driving Comfort Package
includes such useful and potentially life-saving features as Adaptive Cruise Control, Driver Fatigue Detection System,
Front Assist with City Emergency Brake function, rain-sensing windscreen wipers and a Rear View Camera with static
Optional Sport Package
Polo Comfortline customers who enjoy a more spirited drive can also opt for the Sport Package. Adding unique Mirabeau
17-inch wheels, dark tinted rear side window and rear window glass, front fog lights with static cornering function, low
tyre pressure indicator, and lowered sports suspension, the Sport Package enhances the already impressive standard list
of equipment in the Comfortline, and can be combined with the other optional Driving Comfort Package.
