2018 Volkswagen Polo Set For Frankfurt Motor Show Reveal

2017 Volkswagen Polo debuting in Frankfurt engine lineup reduced

The 2017 VW Polo will employ a range of updated engines.

Many reports have suggested that the Polo will be produced locally in South Africa; but, this makes us wonder why the steering wheel is placed on the left instead of the right, as what the market is accustomed to.

It is an open secret that German carmaker Volkswagen is prepping the new-generation Polo hatchback, and in what comes as a solid evidence of this are the latest images of the Polo doing the rounds on the internet.

TBI issued a nationwide Amber Alert, because with so few leads, investigators said Cummins and Thomas could be anywhere by now. Cummins had been a teacher at Culleoka Unit Schol since 2011 before he was dismissed last week following the case.

The new auto retains the silhouette of the current model in production although the design has been tweaked substantially. The interiors are not revealed in the leaked images but, it is expected that in order to meet the growing competition, the 2017 Polo will feature an improved cabin.

The sixth generation VW Polo will ride on the new MQB A0 platform that debuted in the fifth generation Seat Ibiza.

On the mechanical front, the new Polo is expected to replace the old 1.4-litre TSI with a new 1.5-litre TSI petrol motor offered in two power bands - 128bhp and 148bhp. As for powertrain options, the new Polo could become available with an array of three- and four-cylinder engines. These may include an all-digital instrument panel and a new touchscreeen infotainment. The diesel options will include a 1.6-litre TDI turbodiesel and the now available 1.5-litre TDI will be discontinued. The transmission responsibilities will be handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. Volkswagen has, as seen in these photographs, managed to refresh the Polo's looks, without loosing its conservative persona.
