VW Polo 2014 facelift: Geneva 2014

Volkswagen has given the 2014 Polo some minor revisions, including a range of cleaner engines. Details live from the Geneva motor show here

Volkswagen has revealed a refreshed look for the Polo, revealing the updated model at the 2014 Geneva motor show. As well as a mild exterior facelift, the Polo boasts a new range of cleaner engines, offering improved performance and economy.

Interestingly, VW has also announced that the new Polo will be offered with optional electronically controlled Sport Select dampers, offering two different rates of damping. The new car also receives a new electro-mechanical power steering system, which is said to improve efficiency and ‘precision’.

The main improvements come under the bonnet, with a new full range of EU6 compliant engines. The diesel Bluemotion model has been replaced, this time with a new three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engined model. It’s the cleanest Polo ever, producing just 94g/km of CO2. An updated Polo GTI with more power is also on the way, however not until next year.

A new safety system, called ‘Automatic Post-Collision Braking System’, will be fitted as standard to all new Polos, automatically activating the car’s brakes following a collision, helping to minimise the chances of a secondary accident.

The new Polo will go on sale later in the year, with UK order books open in April. First deliveries are expected in July.

One of the sharpest hot hatchbacks money can buy right now, despite weird branding and a very long name (which we’ve simplified for you).
