Volkswagen Polo Facelift 1

Volkswagen Group Malaysia (VGM) has announced the upcoming arrival of the Volkswagen Polo Club Edition models, limited-run variants built to celebrate the supermini’s 40th anniversary.

Both sedan and hatch versions will be available, with some added kit at a lower price, much like the recipe behind the Jetta Club Edition. These new equipment includes a Blaupunkt navigation system and window tinting – likely the Blaupunkt Philadelphia 835 seven-inch touchscreen head unit and Llumar tint film as seen on the Jetta.

As for the price, the hatch version is priced at RM88,888 nett, excluding insurance, road tax and other on-the-road costs – that’s a RM1,000 drop from the current model. The sedan, on the other hand, retails at RM89,888, a full RM2,000 cut from the sedan’s regular price of RM91,888. Both cars come with a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty and five years’ Volkswagen Mobility Guarantee.

Elsewhere, these cars should remain the same, with a 1.6 litre naturally-aspirated MPI four-pot pushing out 105 PS at 5,250 rpm and 153 Nm of torque at 3,800 rpm, sent to the front wheels via a six-speed Aisin automatic transmission. Both cars were facelifted earlier this year, gaining smoked headlights, new bumpers on the hatch, a Mk7 Golf flat-bottomed steering wheel and new trim and upholstery patterns for the hatch.

It has to be said that these cars – and the Jetta Club Edition – aren’t in any way related to the recently-introduced Beetle Club Edition. The latter is a worldwide effort, limited to 50 units and includes a host of upgrades both inside and out.

These included a unique Habanero Orange hue, black wing mirrors, 17-inch “Ravenna” wheels, black decals, black and Orange leather upholstery, orange stitching, “Club” steering wheel badging, new “Twist Wave Dark” dash trim and an OEM Composition Media touchscreen infotainment system.
