The high-resolution Active Info Display can be ordered in place of the classic instrument display. This innovative instrument cluster can, amongst other things, display the entire navigation map. The 26-centimetre thin film transistor LCD display is one of the biggest of its kind, and all major smartphones can be connected and mirrored with the infotainment system.
The number of functions and driver assist systems set the benchmark in this segment. The Front Assist feature with City Emergency Braking System and Pedestrian Monitoring can help to avoid accidents at lower speeds. In addition to the electronic speed limiter and Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, the area monitoring system comes fitted as standard. The lane change system, Side Assist, together with the Rear Traffic Alert function and manoeuvre braking are also available as optional extras.
As well as powerful and efficient petrol and dieselpowertrains, the completely renewed engine range now includes a variant with natural gasdrive for the first time. The Polo TGI uses the high energy density of natural gas (CNG) to move forward with great efficiency and economy. The combined fuel consumption is only 3.1 to 3.2 kg/100 km. The most powerful model is the Polo GTI with 147 kW (200 PS).
