Volkswagen officially made the global presentation of the latest editions of the Polo last January. Equipped with the new EU-6 engines, an electro-mechanical steering system, post-collision braking system, updated switchgear, and an improved infotainment system, the Polo TSI BlueMotion, Polo TDI BlueMotion, Polo Blue GT, and CrossPolo models are prepped and now ready to make their grand reveal at the Geneva Motor Show next week.

The Polo BlueMotion TSI and TDI

The Polo BlueMotion has a “Clearwater Blue Mettalic” paint finish and its body, along with rear and front spoilers, contribute to the better aerodynamics and improved rolling resistance.  It has 15-inch “Buenos Aires” alloy wheels that is also designed for low rolling resistance.

The interior of the BlueMotion is highlighted by chrome adornments while the steering wheel, gear lever, and handbrakes get leather treatment.   

The Polo BlueMotion TSI is powered by a 1.0 liter turbocharged petrol direct injection engine that can generate an output of 95 PS. On the other hand, the Polo BlueMotion TDI with a 1.2 turbodiesel direct injection engine is capable of producing 75 PS.
