The 2017 VW Polo's production at the Anchieta plant in Brazil has commenced. Motor1 Brazil has published photos of the all-new Polo from the production floor, a few of which show exterior and interior details of its low-spec variant.
The low-spec 2017 VW Polo gets less stylish double-spoke alloy wheels and misses out on the mirror-integrated turn repeaters. On the inside, the seats look like they have fabric covers, the analogue instrument panel has been swapped for the Active Info Display, and an automatic climate control system is missing. The black colour theme makes the interior quite dull.
The all-new VW Polo range in Brazil will start with the 1.0-litre MPI three-cylinder engine. This is the same unit found in the VW Gol and VW Voyage, with a maximum power output of 84 hp. Volkswagen will offer this engine with a 5-speed manual transmission. The 1.6-litre MSI four-cylinder engine is the planned mid-range option. The range-topper is the 1.0-litre TSI three-cylinder engine producing maximum power of 128 hp. The 1.0- and 1.6-litre engine models will have the 6-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission, as standard or optional.
Volkswagen will launch the 2017 VW Polo in Brazil in November. Production of the Euro-spec version is well underway in Spain, where the launch will take place in October.
