Design.
Take a look at the Polo. With its strong horizontal lines
and athletic shape, it exudes confidence. From the smart
stylish lines and fi nishes to the precision surfaces,
this car oozes urban appeal and contemporary quality.
Precise, clean and uncluttered lines dominate the Polo’s
exterior design. The grille and sleekly shaped headlights
emphasise the width, enhancing the car’s low centre
of gravity. The body-coloured bumpers sit over the large
black lower intake grille, giving the Polo a purposeful
and determined stance.
From the side, strongly defi ned lines and sills connect
the sculptured wheel arches. While its shoulder
line emphasises its clearly masculine appearance.
Pronounced side skirts and streamlined side
mirrors make a bold statement and enhance its
aerodynamic performance.
The wide track look of the Polo extends to its rear.
Distinctive tail lights sit high in the Polo’s broad
shoulder, reinforcing the impression of solidity. Along its
top edge is an integrated roof spoiler, while the tailgate
extends right down to the body-coloured bumper.

Technology.
Volkswagen’s constant aspiration for excellence means that affordable
innovative technology is at your fingertips in every model within our product
range. With technical expertise and the power of innovation, Volkswagen
brings moving ideas to the road.
TSI Technology. A miracle of performance.
TSI describes Volkswagen’s twin or single-charged petrol engines with direct
injection. This innovative engineering has created high tech engines boasting
excellent torque and power output, combined with lower fuel consumption
and emissions.
The Polo TSI engines are innovative 1.2 and 1.4 litre units that save petrol while
delivering impressive power and performance thanks to the turbocharger and direct
petrol injection. From the driver’s seat, all you feel is one continuous, exhilarating
surge as it produces high torque at low revs and an abundance of power. It’s as
economical as many engines with half as much power.
TDI Technology
Volkswagen’s cutting-edge TDI engines with Diesel Particulate Filters feature
Common Rail technology – injecting precise amounts of fuel at exceedingly high
pressure. The result is a cleaner burning engine with exceptional fuel economy,
impressive torque and compelling performance.
8 | The Polo – Technology
Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG)
O
DSG is a new and advanced 7-speed transmission in which the clutch and
gearshift are controlled electronically. What makes DSG unique is that the next
gear is already pre-selected and awaiting power to be transferred, resulting in a
gear change that takes only 3-4 hundredths of a second. The benefits are virtually
no interruption to power, traction or acceleration, and additional fl exibility.
Furthermore, because it ensures optimum transmission of the engine power,
DSG provides excellent fuel consumption and driving satisfaction.
Hill-Start Assist
Hill-start assist holds the vehicle stationary for 1.5 seconds on hills with an
incline greater than 5 percent, when the foot brake is released, by temporarily
locking the brake pressure. This intelligent feature provides a comfortable hill
start, which importantly avoids any rolling back.

Safety.
At Volkswagen, safety has always been as important to us, as it is to you.
And so you will fi nd both active and passive safety systems throughout the Polo.
This is a car created with your personal safety foremost in our minds.
It all starts with the Polo’s rigid body structure. Its lightweight construction
is reinforced with hardened steel, creating a solid passenger cell that gives
occupants maximum protection in an accident. Surrounding you are body
panels that crumple on impact, absorbing the energy of the impact and giving
you maximum protection.
In an accident, the Polo’s safety features will work together to protect you.
Depending on the severity of the impact, front seat belt tensioners will hold
you fi rmly, while up to six airbags will deploy to cushion you from harm.
Even after the event, the Polo’s intelligent safety systems keep working to
protectyou, automatically activating the hazard warning lights, unlocking
the doors, switching on the interior lights and deactivating the fuel pump.
Pedestrians will also be safer when you drive a Polo. The deformable bonnet
has been designed to minimise injuries in the event of a collision.
Active Safety – Everything designed to help prevent
accidents from happening.
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
When braking, wheel speed sensors measure the road wheel speed and should
one or more wheels start to lock the ABS system reduces brake pressure to that
wheel. This prevents the wheels from locking during heavy or emergency braking,
enabling the vehicle to remain steerable.
Anti Slip Regulation (ASR)
ASR is a switchable traction control system that prevents the wheels from spinning
under acceleration by intervening in the engine management system and reducing
engine torque when necessary.
Brake Assist
During emergency braking, Brake Assist aids the driver by increasing the brake
pressure automatically to a level exceeding the locking limit. The ABS is thus
quickly brought into the operating range, which enables maximum vehicle
deceleration to be achieved.
Electronic Differential Lock (EDL)
EDL improves driving and steering characteristics when accelerating on road
surfaces where each wheel has a different degree of traction. The system operates
automatically and is combined with the ABS system. Using the ABS wheel sensors,
EDL monitors the speed of the individual driving wheels. When one wheel starts
to spin due to differences in road surfaces, the system brakes the spinning wheel,
transferring engine power to the wheel with the best traction.
10 | The Polo – Safety
Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP)
ESP helps ensure that the vehicle goes
where you steer it, even in extreme
driving conditions. The ESP system
constantly compares the actual
movement of the vehicle with carefully
pre-determined values. Should a
situation arise in which the vehicle
starts to skid, ESP will apply the brakes
to individual wheels and automatically
adjust the engine’s power output to
correct the problem. It also minimizes
the likelihood of spinning off on a curve
due to understeering or oversteering.
O
Passive Safety – Design measures taken to protect
the occupants of vehicles from injury, or to reduce
the risk of injury.
Crumple Zones
Front and rear crumple zones absorb the energy of an impact and divert the resulting
forces away from the secure passenger safety cell.
Safety Optimised Head Restraints
Safety Optimised Head Restraints on the front seats are optimally positioned and
specially contoured to help reduce whiplash injuries. In the event of an accident,
excellent protection is achieved via the seatback controlling upper body movements,
and this is balanced with head movements being controlled via the head restraints.
O
Airbags
Six airbags (twin front, side and curtain) are standard features. Airbags combine with
the seat belts to help reduce the risk of severe head and chest injuries in collisions.
When inflated, airbags cushion the head and upper body and distribute the resulting
loads over as large an area as possible.
Seatbelts
Front seat passenger seatbelts are equipped with belt pre-tensioners and belt force
limiters. Belt tensioners tighten the seatbelt on impact, pulling it closer to the
occupant’s body, ideally positioning them for airbag inflation. Belt force limiters
reduce seat belt forces on front seat occupants and, in conjunction with belt
tensioners and airbags, lessen the risk of upper body injuries. Three-point seatbelts
are fitted to all seats, and three child seat anchor points are fitted in the rear.

Interior.
The Polo’s interior has been designed to cushion you
in comfort and provide everything that you and your
passengers will need at your fi ngertips. From the moment
you slip into the driver’s seat, you will appreciate the
quality of the exquisite interior fi nish and high level
of appointments.
The cabin is whisper quiet, enabling you to focus on
the creature comforts that surround you. Striking white
illumination emanates from behind the sculptured
3-spoke steering wheel, making it both easy on the eye
and easy to read in all lighting conditions. Plug your
favourite MP3 player into the auxiliary input socket or
enjoy the RCD310 radio with MP3 compatibility and
6 speakers. The Polo’s spacious cabin accommodates
five adults with ease. 60/40 split folding rear seats
fold to create a level cargo floor in the luggage area,
for those extra long items.
The Polo’s centre console angles towards the driver for
maximum ergonomic comfort. Dashboard surfaces are
sumptuous and soft to the touch. While chrome trims
bring a new level of refi nement to the Comfortline’s
air vents.
Enjoy the sensation of taking hold of the sculptural
3-spoke steering wheel and gear knob and take comfort
in the heat-insulated glass. Even serve your passengers
a cool drink from the chillable glove compartment,
with front and rear cup holders abound.

Glossary.
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP)
When braking, wheel speed sensors measure the road wheel
speed and should one or more wheels start to lock the ABS system
reduces brake pressure to that wheel. This prevents the wheels
from locking during heavy or emergency braking, enabling the
vehicle to remain steerable.
ABS, EDL and ASR traction control systems are integrated into
the Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP). In short, ESP helps
ensure that the vehicle goes where you steer it even in extreme
driving conditions. The ESP system constantly compares the
actual movement of the vehicle with pre-determined values and
should a situation arise where the vehicle starts to skid, ESP will
apply the brakes to individual wheels and automatically adjust
the engine’s power output to correct the problem. ESP prevents
the vehicle from losing control when trying to avoid an accident,
for example. It also prevents spinning off on a curve due to either
understeer or oversteer.
Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR)
ASR is a switchable traction control system that prevents the
driven wheels from spinning under acceleration by reducing
engine torque. It is active at speeds above 40km/h.
Brake Assist
During emergency braking, Brake Assist aids the driver by
increasing the brake pressure automatically to a level exceeding
the locking limit. The ABS is thus quickly brought into the
operating range, which enables maximum vehicle deceleration
to be achieved.
Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD)
Electronic, more sophisticated means of regulating the ratio
of front/rear brake pressure. Settings are varied according to
driving and load conditions to ensure each wheel is braked to
the optimum extent.
Hill Start Assist (HSA)
Hill Start Assist (HSA) holds the vehicle when the foot brake
is released by temporarily locking the brake pressure (for a
maximum of 1.5 seconds) to provide comfortable starting-off
without rolling back. Hill Start Assist (HSA) operates on inclines
greater than 5% and is fitted in combination with manual
transmissions and the Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG).
Electronic Differential Lock (EDL)
EDL improves driving and steering characteristics when
accelerating on road surfaces where each wheel has a different
degree of traction. The system operates automatically and is
combined with the ABS system. Using the ABS wheel sensors,
EDL monitors the speed of the individual driving wheels.
When a difference in driving wheel speed is detected (i.e. when
one wheel starts to spin due to differences in road surfaces,
e.g. due to water or dirt) the system brakes the spinning wheel,
transferring engine power to the wheel with the best traction.
EDL is active in forward and reverse and operates up to 40km/h.
Extended Electronic Differential Lock (XDL)
XDL is an extension of the Electronic Differential Lock (EDL)
function. When cornering, XDL responds to the load relief at
the front wheel on the inside of a corner. The ESP hydraulics are
used for the XDL to apply pressure to the wheel on the inside of
the corner in order to prevent wheel spin. This improves traction
and reduces the tendency to understeer. As a direct result of the
one-sided and precise braking pressure, cornering is sportier and
more accurate.

Volkswagen's Australian
Environmental Strategy.
Steps Towards Sustainability
To Volkswagen Group Australia, sustainability means
taking responsibility for the environment, as well as
actively participating in the development of society.
We believe sustainability offers opportunities for long-term
innovations, new approaches, efficient technologies and
ground-breaking products. Our organisation has established
an Environment Committee to manage our business activities
and reduce our environmental impact.
Carbon Management Strategy
We have developed a Carbon Management Strategy to
identify and manage carbon emissions from our business
activities. Our fuel usage from company cars and energy
usage were calculated to measure our Carbon Footprint,
and comprehensive carbon reduction targets have been
set. Volkswagen Group Australia aims to downsize its
environmental footprint in the future.
Carbon Management Program
Our range of vehicles has earned a reputation for fuel
efficiency. We’re working to extend that efficiency throughout
our entire operational structure. We’ve initiated a Carbon
Management Program, to recommend changes to achieve
emissions reductions. We’re making real changes in reducing
our carbon footprint.
42 | The Polo – Volkswagen's Australian Environmental Strategy
Environmentally Friendly Engines
Our TSI twin or single-charged petrol engines achieve
impressive fuel efficiency with reduced CO2 emissions.
Our TDI diesel engines use less fuel and have lower emissions,
with the benefits of high torque and performance. Our diesel
particulate fi lter extracts soot from vehicle exhaust emissions.
Numerous engines already fulfi ll the stringent forthcoming
Euro 5 emissions standard.
Environmentally Friendly Transmission
Our dual-clutch Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) provides the
comfort of a conventional automatic transmission and
the dynamic drive of a manual transmission. DSG boasts
significantly reduced fuel consumption compared to a
conventional automatic transmission.
