The German automaker is preparing to change the generation for the Polo supermini and is proudly teasing us to its arrival using a series of videos depicting the life story of the model that first appeared back in 1975.
More so, the carmaker has also officially revealed the wait is almost over, with the new generation Polo coming from under the wraps (officially, because otherwise we’ve known it for some time) on June 16 at 11 AM CEST / 9 AM GMT during a special preview setup in Berlin. The brand remained short on details, aside from the fact that everyone knew – the new Polo is using the MQB A0 architecture that is already official inside the group sister Seat Ibiza which is starting production this month. We already know from the numerous spy shots and leaks the Polo isn’t something to get you surprised when discussing the styling – with a highly evolutionary appearance.
We do expect the Polo to grow in size, both in and out, allowing for additional space for the occupants and their luggage. The powertrain options are also pretty straightforward – three- and four-cylinder engines, all featuring turbocharging, the flagship being the VW Group’s new 1.5-liter TSI Evo already seen in the facelifted Golf as the economical 130-hp BlueMotion version or the standard, punchy 150-hp model.
