Since the new generation Volkswagen Polo is due in the coming months, now could be the perfect time to buy the current model. The Polo runout is nearing, in preparation for the new model arriving in showrooms, so you could find yourself snagging a real bargain. Volkswagen Australia has announced the intention to replace the Polo Comfortline and Trendline with new models the Urban and the Urban+.
The New Variants:
Both the Urban and the Urban+ will retain a similarly aggressive price structure as the existing models, but they will benefit from some additional gear. The Urban will replace the Trendline and adds 15 inch alloys, Multi Function Display, leather parking brake, gear shift knob and steering wheel and illuminated vanity mirrors.
The Urban+ adds 16 inch alloys, dark tinted windows, driver fatigue detection, automatic headlights, front fog lights and rain sensing wipers.
The interior of the new variants have also been upgraded with heated sports front seats, auto dimming rearview mirror, climate control, chrome and silver decorative trim and front footwell lighting.
There is also an optional Driver Assistance Pack for the Urban+, which adds Adaptive Cruise Control, front and rear parking sensors, Discover Media sat nav, and Front Assist featuring City Emergency Brakes.
Both the new models will feature a four cylinder 1.2 litre turbo engine paired with either a six speed manual or a DSG automatic transmission.
So, Is Now a Good Time to Buy?
Volkswagen Australia has reported sales are down for the Polo. The Light Car segment is down by 13 percent in the year to date figures, with the Polo down by 18 percent.
However, the sales of 3316 units is still enough to retain 8 percent of the market share. This places the Polo fifth in the segment, behind the Honda Jazz, Toyota Yaris, Mazda2 and Hyundai Accent.
While the new models do look great, it is worth considering the outgoing models. Since the new models are due in showrooms in the coming months, there has never been a better time to get a great Volkswagen Polo price. Volkswagen Australia is supporting a boost in sales, so there are going to be some very attractive deals and offers as the runout begins. The new model is expected to arrive in Australia in March 2018, so there has never been a better time to consider buying a Volkswagen Polo.
