World debut in Moscow!

Volkswagen will unveil a vehicle specially developed for Russia June 2, 2010. The new sedan was named Polo.


The new vehicle complies with the global quality standards of Volkswagen in every respect, while being very attractive in terms of price

For the first time in the history of the brand, a vehicle has been developed specially for the Russian market, bearing in mind its specific climate and street conditions. A high level of safety is ensured already in the Trendline basic version—two airbags, head rests and three-point seat belts for all five passengers. From Comfortline and up, the Polo is equipped with ABS as standard. In the Highline top version, additional safety systems are integrated that are normally unavailable in this class—for instance: side air-bags and ESP. The specific demands of Russian drivers and the climate and street conditions in Russia have both been carefully taken into account during the new Saloon’s development: long-term tests were conducted in different climate zones, and the street conditions in the most variegated regions in Russia were examined. The available petrol qualities were tested repeatedly as well. Thus the vehicle has been equipped with an up-to-date and reliable engine that is ideally suited to those operating conditions prevailing in Russia, a galvanised, non-corrosive body and a wheel suspension geared to bad roads. Particularly robust paints were used for the car’s paint job, and the chrome parts are also highly resistant to aggressive agents.

The Polo has launched a new class with its all-new design, spacious feel and high quality standards. Its attention to detail and pursuit of perfection make the Polo the ideal choice for lovers of maxing out minimalism and the finer things in life. Sedan type of a body has been chosen deliberately due to the fact that it is the most popular body type with Russians.




The new Volkswagen Polo Sedan is powered by a 1.6-liter Otto engine that develops a total of 105 HP and is mated to either a 5-gear manual gearbox or a 6-gear automatic gearbox with sequential shift function (Tiptronic) which makes Volkswagen the first automaker to offer Tiptronic in Russia.

It will be offered in three trim levels. The Trendline comes standard with two airbags, head rests, and three-point seat belts for all five passengers. The Comfortline offers ABS as standard and the Highline offers side air-bags and ESP as standard.


The new Saloon will be built on a completely new assembly line at VOLKSWAGEN AG’s plant in Kaluga.
