The Polo Sedan might be an entry-level offering but it has all the reliability that Volkswagen is known for since the early days. This nifty sedan is ready to compete with its Asian rivals that dominate the category in the Philippines.
The Polo Sedan has the same curvature and lines as the hatchback version, only this comes with the traditional trunk. Inside is an all-black interior with Livon seats and a radio that can play music from either USB, Aux, or SD Card. Front airbags are a standard, together with Anti-lock Brake System and Anti-Theft System with Immobilizer.
Its core is a 1.6L engine, available in either a 105 hp with 153 Nm of torque or 103 hp with 250 Nm of torque. The former is coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission while the latter has a 5-speed manual.
Volkswagen’s subcompact, the Polo Sedan, was once purely a diesel affair with no automatic transmission option. But now, there’s a new variant, the Polo Sedan 1.6 MPI, that could be a more practical and easier to drive option.
Volkswagen Philippines experienced a good 2015 to say the least as they achieved positive media exposure, strong sales figures, and a bunch of industry awards along the way. In light of this, the German automotive maker promised that 2016 will be “more exciting”.
Volkswagen Philippines kicked off 2016 on a high note as they announced the availability of the updated versions of their Jetta, Polo Sedan, and Tiguan. Moreover, they also teased about some new vehicles to hit the Philippine shores within this year.
