This is the Volkswagen Polo R Line; a sporty, high-spec addition to the VW Polo range.
The deeper, sportier bumpers and side sill extensions give the Polo R Line a more muscular look. It also gets a gloss black radiator grille with R Line badging and 16-inch alloys.
Darkened rear side windows and front foglights (with a static cornering function where they light up around corners) complete the makeover.
Inside, the Polo R Line has aluminium door scuff plates, sports seats, leather steering wheel trim, aluminium pedal trim and black headlining.
Standard equipment includes air-conditioning, electric windows (four- for five-door models), electrically operated and heated door mirrors and ‘multi-device interface’ with USB input.
Three- and five-door models are available. Just one engine is offered – a 104bhp 1.2 TSI petrol. Average fuel economy is 53.3mpg and CO2 emissions are 124g/km.
The VW Polo R Line is on sale now, at £15,195 for the 3dr and £15,815 for the 5dr. First deliveries are expected in July.
