Volkswagen Passengers Cars Malaysia, a subsidiary of Volkswagen Group Malaysia, has just launched the Polo Sedan last week. The asking price for the Polo Sedan is apparently RM99,888 (without registration or insurance), which is considered as the most affordable Volkswagen so far.
The Volkswagen Polo Sedan is equipped with a 1.6L 103hp petrol injection 16-Valve Multi Point Injection (MPI) engine. This engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which is offered with a Tiptronic option.
Thanks to the engine’s capability of generating 153Nm of torque, this family sedan can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 12.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 183 km/h, giving enough power and torque to tackle hilly areas.
The engine’s fuel efficiency is extraordinary. The Polo Sedan returns a combined fuel consumption of only 6.5L/100km.
The Polo Sedan is a well-designed car that features clean lines all over its body which embodies the Volkswagen DNA. The car comes with 15″ alloy wheels, chrome finish on the front grille and on the front air-dam, trunk and fog light surrounds with height adjustable halogen headlights, and green-tinted heat absorbing glass.
The Polo Sedan will be available in 6 different colours including Candy White, Flash Red, Terra Beige, Shadow Blue, Reflex Silver, and Deep Black.
The Polo Sedan is stylish, comfortable and exudes the Volkswagen brand experience. The continental style of the vehicle comes with an interior chrome package (chrome surrounds for light switches, AC vents, steering wheel accent, handbrake lever knob and gearshift), instrument cluster with tachometer, speedometer, trip odometer and digital clock, genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel, gearshift knob, handbrake lever and gearshift boot.
Additionally, the Polo Sedan comes with all four one-touch powered windows, height adjustable driver and passenger seat, ‘Metric’ fabric seat upholstery, multi-function display, power door locks, power steering, radio with CD-MP3/WMA player and 4 speakers and rear doors with storage compartments.
Volkswagen takes safety as a primary feature while designing a car and like all Volkswagen vehicles, a high level of safety is ensured in the Polo Sedan. The car comes with four airbags (driver and front passenger with 2 side airbags), 3-point safety belts for rear outboard occupants, lap belt for rear middle occupant, electronic anti-theft immobiliser, electronic Brake Pressure Distribution (EBD) and pinch guard safety for all 4 powered windows.
