It’s shaping up to be quite an exciting week for the local auto scene. With everyone in still in Preve hangover mode, Volkswagen has announced that it will launch the Polo Sedan on April 19. That’s tomorrow folks!

No surprise here, we’ve seen the Polo Sedan in Malaysia before, and we actually spotted a trailer full of them last week (our mobile phones cameras couldn’t perform at night, though).

The Polo Sedan is set to be the brand’s most affordable model, so don’t expect TSI and DSG as per the Polo hatchback. A proven 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine mated to a six-speed automatic is likely to be the chosen drivetrain.

What we can expect however is “German engineered excellence” and “one of the most stylish and practical rides for our time”, according to VW’s microsite.

We will be there to bring you the details. For now, take a look at the Indian market Polo Sedan called the Vento. Ours won’t differ by much.
