Economical and agile engines
Four petrol engines and a natural gas drive. Volkswagen is launching the latest evolutionary stage of the Polo, generally with front-wheel-drive, with a range of five different petrol engines. The petrol engines available as of the launch date deliver 59 kW (80 PS), 70 kW (95 PS) and 81 kW (110 PS). The 70 kW engine will be offered with an optional 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (DSG), whilst this will be standard for the 81 kW engine. Additionally, Volkswagen will once again offer the Polo as a 1.0 TGI with a bivalent natural gas/petrol drive. The 1.0 TGI delivers 66 kW (90 PS). All four engines are three-cylinder with a capacity of 999 cm3.
1.0 MPI with 59 kW / 80 PS. The Polo is fitted with a 1.0-litre petrol engine as standard: the 1.0 MPI. The engine delivers 59 kW (80 PS) and a maximum torque of 93 Nm, and is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.
1.0 TSI with 70 kW / 95 PS.The Polo’s smallest turbocharged direct injection engine (TSI) provides an output of 70 kW / 95 PS. The TSI is as efficient as it is agile. This engine can also optionally be combined with a 7-speed DSG as an alternative to the 5-speed manual gearbox.
1.0 TSI with 81 kW / 110 PS. The most powerful TSI available in the Polo at its launch is likewise a three-cylinder model: the 1.0 TSI, which delivers 81 kW (110 PS). This petrol engine will be launched in conjunction with a 7-speed DSG as standard. The maximum torque is 200 Nm.
1.0 TGI with 66 kW / 90 PS. Like the two pure petrol engines, the 1.0 TGI – an especially sustainable natural gas engine – is three-cylinder. It has an output of 66 kW (90 PS). Even at very low engine speeds, this efficient natural gas engine provides its maximum torque of 160 Nm. The engine starts in natural gas mode, provided there is enough compressed natural gas (CNG) on board. If the CNG in the secure high pressure tank has been used up, the engine switches to petrol.
