With its compact dimensions and fresh design highlights, the Polo exudes personality even at first glance. Its most striking feature is the redesigned front with optional1 LED light strip combined with IQ-LIGHT Matrix LED headlights between the headlamps. On closer inspection, it’s not only the choice of colour that stands out so prominently, but a whole range of features through which each of the four Polo Life, Polo Style, Polo R-Line and Polo GTI equipment lines come into their own. Examples include decorative chrome highlights and other optional features such as a colour-contrasting roof or fog lights. Which one is your favourite?

The Polo includes a capacitive steering wheel when you opt for a TSI engine which has Travel Assist as standard: thanks to the steering wheels touch-sensitive surface, it can detect whether you physically have your hands on the wheel. Travel Assist puts the comfort into driving by providing assistance in monotonous and tiring situations. Travel Assist also helps keep you in lane and maintain your speed while taking into account the distance from vehicles in front, especially on motorways and major roads.
Alongside the conventional airbags, the central airbag in the Polooffers protection against a collision between driver and passenger.1 In addition, there are two curtain airbags on board, which in an emergency deploy from the headliner like curtains, covering the entire side window areas from front to back, including the B-pillar. This provides effective protection for everyone in the car, including those in the rear seats.1
Optional adaptive cruise control (ACC)1 can help you keep within your pre-set maximum speed (up to 130mph/210 km/h)3 and maintain your distance to the vehicle in front.2 It also helps your Polo to automatically stop and start moving in traffic jams (if the DSG automatic gearbox option is installed).
Predictive cruise control and cornering assist is added to the ACC in combination with the navigation system4. This helps you avoid exceeding the speed limits by identifying the official limits along the route.2 The system also uses route data from the navigation system to adapt the vehicle’s own speed to corners, junctions (exits), and roundabouts.2

The Side Assist lane change assist system uses an LED lamp in the exterior mirrors to indicate that there are other vehicles in the blind spot or driving up to 70 m behind you.1 When you indicate to change lanes, the system calculates whether one of these vehicles could pose a hazard based on position and speed, and then flashes to alert you to this.
