2014 VW Polo images, specs and UK price

VW has announced the price of the 2014 Polo hatchback.

The 2014 VW Polo will go on sale in the UK from April 23rd. Prices start from £11,100 for the new German hatchback, which benefits from a new range of engine options and a new touchscreen infotainment system.

A 1.0-litre MPI with 60 or 75PS, 1.2-litre with 90 or 110PS and a 1.4 TSI with cylinder deactivation and an increase of 10PS in power to 150PS make up the range of petrol engines. The diesel options are a 1.4-litre TDI with either 75 or 90PS. All engines benefit from up to a 23 per cent increase in efficiency.

VW has equipped the new Polo with a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system. All UK models benefit from the upgrade, which adds Bluetooth and USB connectivity. A larger 6.5-inch display with built-in navigation is an optional extra on the SE trim for £700. MirrorLink lets you control and display certain apps on the infotainment display for an additional £150.

Five trim levels are available. Bottom of the range is S, which includes a 5.0-inch touchscreen display, SD card reader, DAB digital radio, cup holders and USB and AUX in connections. SE adds 15-inch alloy wheels, body coloured door handles, leather steering wheel, the larger infotainment display and manual air conditioning.

SE Design adds larger alloys, a black gloss radiator grille and door mirror caps, dark-tinted tail lights, cloth upholstery and front sports seats. SEL introduces front fog lights, front and rear parking sensors, illuminated front footwells and a front centre armrest with storage.

The most pimp 2014 VW Polo is a BlueGT. It comes with 17-inch alloys, unique body styling, 15mm lower sports suspension, sports seats trimmed in a blue cloth and Alcantara, XDS electronic differential lock and cruise control to name a few additions.

The 1.0-litre MPI 60PS, which is capable of 60.1mpg, with a 5-speed manual gearbox starts from £11,100 rising to £19,715 for the 1.4-litre TSI ACT 150PS with a 7-speed DSG gearbox.

The most frugal option is the 1.4-litre TDI in 75 or 90PS form, starting from £14,645 for the 5-speed manual. It can manage 83.1mpg and CO2 emissions of just 88g/km.
