June 05, 2009 / by / 0 Comment

Volkswagen Polo has been in the market since 1975. This is a super mini car (B-segment in Europe, Subcompact in North America); larger than a city car but smaller than a small family car. Now, the fifth generation of Polo has also been launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2009. For UK, production begins this summer whereas deliveries begin in October this year. Polo 2009 is being offered in Europe with 3 petrol engine choices; two 1.2 liter three cylinder units producing 60 hp and 70 hp, and a 1.4 liter four producing 85 hp. Also, three variations of 1.6 liter turbo diesel producing 75, 90, or 105 hp are also available. As for the expected options, a 105-hp, 1.2 liter, turbocharged TSI four and a Polo GTI with 170–180 hp from a 1.4 liter TSI will be hitting the market pretty soon.
