New body overview

Volkswagen Polo 2021.

Over the past year, experts predicted that VW will take a different path and make the Russian Polo an analogue of the Latin American Volkswagen Virtus 2020 sedan, assembled in Brazil and based on the MQB A0 trolley.

In reality, the manufacturer decided to leave the PQ25 platform for the model and modernize it using the developments from the latest version of the Skoda Rapid 2020.

Note that the 2021 Volkswagen Polo of the year will be considered a redesigned Rapid, but outwardly it will look little like a Czech liftback.

Judging by the available renderings, the car will receive an original exterior design, referring to the «older» VW models. At the same time, the new Polo will be able to boast of increased dimensions and, as a result, a more spacious cabin, where an increase in space should come in place for the rear passengers:

• length — 4483 mm. (+ 93 mm. In comparison with the previous generation Polo);

• width — 1706 mm. (+ 7 mm.);

• wheelbase — 2602 mm. (+ 49 mm.)

There is information on the volume of the luggage compartment: on the liftback it will be 550 liters versus 460 on the sedan.

The new German five-door Volkswagen Polo 2021 looks monumental thanks to the presence of clear straight lines. At the front, they form a wide radiator grille, which, thanks to the successful shape, forms a single whole with the headlights.

Three chrome louvres find a «continuation» in the LED headlight strips, and on the bottom of the bumper there is a large three-piece air intake with the same mesh filling as the grille.

Already in the initial version, the Volkswagen Polo 2021 will be equipped with LED light modules. In the cheap versions of the liftback, they will be of the reflex type, in the more expensive ones — the searchlight.

At the stern, the lighting equipment also attracts its attention with new forms of lanterns, but the license plate that has moved to the bumper and chic chrome pipes on the «plump» bumper make the rear of the car more massive.

The interior of the new 2021 Volkswagen Polo model will look more like a Rapid interior, although design drawings hint at the use of a different front panel and different forms of air vents. The central display of the multimedia system will appear already in the initial configuration and it will be a 6.5-inch screen.

The equipment with an 8.25-inch touchscreen and a virtual dashboard will cost more. The rest of the interior elements are still depicted “hypothetically”, so their design cannot be considered approved.

Technical stuffing

• gasoline naturally aspirated 1.6 MPI engine in 90 or 110 hp versions. from. plus a manual «box» 5-speed manual or 6-automatic transmission Aisin;
