NEWS - Volkswagen Polo R Line

Volkswagen is adding even more style to its popular supermini, with the launch of the Polo R Line, which builds on the specification of the Polo Match with unique styling touches inside and out.

On the outside, the R Line is distinguished by a unique styling pack, consisting of sporty R Line front and rear bumpers, a black gloss radiator grille with R Line badging, deeper side sills and 16-inch ‘Mallory’ alloy wheels. The Rear windows are tinted, and the standard front foglights also include a static cornering function.

On opening the doors you will notice aluminium scuff plates with R Line logos, and then inside there are sports seats with ‘Kyalami’ cloth upholstery and an R Line logo on the headrests, along with a leather-trimmed three-spoke steering wheel with R Line logo and aluminium-capped pedals, while the roof lining is finished in black cloth.

Standard equipment includes RCD 310 radio/CD player with six speakers and multi-device interface, for plugging in an iPod or other compatible device, ‘Climatic’ semi-automatic air conditioning, a multifunction trip computer, electric windows, height-adjustable front seats, a split-folding rear-seat backrest, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, illuminated vanity mirrors, front and rear reading lights, a tyre pressure monitor and remote central locking.

The R Line is available with just one engine, the existing 1.2-litre 105 PS TSI petrol unit, with a six-speed manual gearbox. This engine propels the Polo R Line from 0-62mph in 9.7 seconds, and on to a top speed of 118 mph. Fuel consumption is 53.3mpg on the combined cycle, and CO2 emissions are 124 g/km. This puts the Polo R Line in band D with road tax costing £100 for the year (free first year).

Prices start at £15,195 on the road for the three-door model, rising to £15,815 for the five-door. The Polo R Line is available to order at Volkswagen Retailers now, with first deliveries expected this month.
