The Polo 1.0 TSI 85kW DSG derivatives have joined the Polo 1.0TSI 70kW Manual and Polo GTI derivatives, which went on sale at the beginning of January 2022. Historically the 1.0TSI 85kW DSG derivatives account for 40 percent of the sales volume of the Polo model range.


What’s new?

The Polo now features a new exterior design, as the bumper and tailgate have been given a new design, as have the headlights and tail light clusters which now come standard with LED technology. A new distinctive daytime and nighttime light signature now includes a new LED light strip along the radiator grille in conjunction with the IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights.


The interior is now equipped with a digital cockpit, a redesigned multi-function steering wheel, new generation infotainment systems and optional wireless App-Connect.


The Polo is the first vehicle in its class to be offered with the optional IQ.DRIVE Travel assist feature, which brings together the functions of the new predictive Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Assist.

The Polo has adopted Volkswagen’s new naming convention that follows the Polo for the base model, Polo Life for the mid-level and R-Line for premium models. The new Polo is also available in a GTI derivative.


Standard equipment in the Polo Life 1.0 TSI 85kW DSG includes a digital dashboard display, front and rear park distance control, electric folding mirrors, lumbar support for the driver and front passenger, a leather wrapped multi function steering wheel with shift paddles as well as 15-inch Essex alloy wheels.
