In 2010, VW will launch the Polo BlueMotion which consumes just 3.3 liters of diesel per 100 km.

Volkswagen has released initial details about the new Polo three-door, ahead of its official unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Featuring sporty styling and three different trim levels, the Polo was designed to combine beauty and efficiency. Base Trendline models boast standard ESP, daytime running lights, electric front windows, central locking, and tinted windows. Moving up to the Comfortline adds body-colored exterior accents, chrome trim, air conditioning, faux aluminum interior details, and a split folding rear seat. At the top of the range, there is a Highline model which features additional chrome trim, 15-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, a three-spoke leather steering wheel, a multi-function display, and height-adjustable sport seats.

At launch, the Polo will be offered with three diesel and three petrol engines. The petrol engines will have outputs of 44 kW (60 PS), 51 kW (70 PS), and 63 kW (85 PS) while the diesels will be rated at 55 kW (75 PS), 66 kW (90 PS) and 77 kW (105 PS). Future engines include a 77 kW (105 PS) TSI petrol and a 1.2-liter TDI which consumes just 3.3 liters of diesel per 100 km (for the Polo BlueMotion). For the first time, VW's seven-speed dual-clutch (DSG) automatic transmission will be available as an option.

The Polo three-door will be launched this fall, with prices starting at €12,150 (in Germany).
