"The Polo is a young, fresh car. It combines charisma with strong technology. No other car offers so much space for its size. This makes our Polo the number one compact car, and it will remain number one."
Dr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Volkswagen Brand Board of Management
"The new Polo brings the future to the compact class. A whole lot of space based on the modular transverse matrix, sustainable engines like a new natural gas TGI, the world premiere of a new generation of the Active Info Display, the latest infotainment systems and forward-thinking assistance systems – all of these qualities enable this Volkswagen to overcome traditional class boundaries."
Dr Frank Welsch, Member of the Volkswagen Brand Board of Management, responsible for Development
"The much better proportions create the framework for a grown-up, confident appearance of the sixth generation Polo – charismatic, progressive, contemporary and friendly. We have systematically utilised this realignment to build a powerful compact."
"This Volkswagen can immediately be made out as the original of its class, but also as a completely new generation. A Polo with an expressive design which makes the compact – now as a four-door only – sportier, cleaner and thoroughly unique within the range of brand models. This is a car that fits in perfectly with our times – both visually and technologically."
Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design, Volkswagen Brand
