polo offers even greater value for the new year

Jan 2, 2003

Volkswagen is starting off 2003 with great news for buyers of its Polo range – prices are down by an average of five per cent across the range as from tomorrow (3 January), making it even better value for money.

For example, the five-door S 1.4-litre 75 PS model is down from £10,890 to £10,305, while the new direct-injection SE 1.4-litre FSI with three doors loses £560 to become £11,020.

Using advanced high pressure Pumpe Düse injection technology, the 1.4-litre 75 PS TDI PD engine has always been an economical choice in the Polo line up.  Now it becomes an even more financially sound one, with a starting price of just £10,405 for the three-door S model –  £850 less than previously.

Drivers preferring the convenience of a Polo with automatic transmission will benefit from the £875 reduction on the five-door 1.4-litre S model.  For buyers demanding lots of torque along with class-leading efficiency, the 1.9-litre 100 PS TDI PD model is the ideal choice, and now costs £835 less than before.

The new Polo, launched in the UK last year, starts at £7,995 ‘on the road’ for the three-door E model with its sophisticated 1.2-litre 55 PS three cylinder engine.  Every Polo comes with ABS brakes; central locking; four airbags; electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors; immobiliser and a three-year/60,000 mile warranty as standard.

The value enhancements coincide with news that Volkswagen looks set to have had its most successful year ever in the UK, with sales pushing past the 180,000 mark for the first time.
