The launch of the VW Polo Trophy Edition marks the company’s historic 1-2-3 win with the Volkswagen Polo R, in the WRC 2015.

Notable differences from the standard VW Polo hatchback include Volkswagen Motorsport decals on exterior, contrasting appliqué on outside rear view mirror caps, WRC-inspired rear spoiler, Ecotint window film, and Blaupunkt Philadelphia 835 infotainment system with 7-inch touchscreen head unit and navigation facility and connectivity features.

With no mechanical changes to the WRC-styled Polo Trophy, the sole naturally-aspirated four-cylinder 1.6-litre MPI gasoline engine, produces the same power output of 105 PS at 5,250 rpm and peak torque of 153 Nm at 3,800 rpm. There is no change in the Aisin Seiki-made 6-speed automatic transmission as well.
