After the debut of the Polo GTI, here comes the CrossPolo, the pseudo SUV version of Volkswagen’s supermini. Like its predecessor (which was sold in Malaysia) the CrossPolo does not have any off-road ability, but comes with trendy SUV style body cladding, stone guards and roof rails, which works to liven up the smart but safe looks of the standard car. Only available as a five-door, the CrossPolo sits higher by 15 mm.
Six engine options include a 69 bhp 1.2-litre, 84 bhp 1.4-litre and a 104 bhp 1.2 TSI from the petrol family, while the diesel front comprises a 1.6-litre trio of 74 bhp, 89 bhp and 104 bhp TDI motors. The CrossPolo is available with a standard 6-speed manual while the 7-speed DSG transmission is optional. Domestic sales will start in May followed by the rest of Europe. Gallery is after the jump.
