    2018 Polo



    Information is starting to come out on the new Polo so it was time to start a new section. Discuss away!

    Looking forward to confirmed Aussie specs .... my daughter has been holding off buying her next car in anticipation of this arriving. Currently some really good run-out deals on the old models, but this new 1 looks awesome.

    Pretty much a done deal for us as she refuses to consider anything else

    Next Polo GTI with 2.0T from the Golf GTI will be awesome and may just land up being my run-around.

    Looks really good IMO. What I'm most interested in is reports that the new Polo GTI comes with a 6 speed DSG (scrapping the dreaded DQ200). If these reports are correct it sounds like they've moved to a wet DSG unit (presumably the DQ250) which shoots the new GTI to the top of my list. Anyone read similar?

    I can't believe the lack of interest and threads about the new polo. The gti looks great and a tuners dream with the golf 2.0L...

    I've just returned from Germany. Was at the Frankfurt motor show and did a tour of Wolfsburg facility. The best info I could get is that lower spec Mk6 Polos will arrive in Australia next year from March but, the GTI won't get here until September/October 2018.

    I sat front and back in a Beats version and there is more room, headroom especially (I'm 190cm) and it's quite comfy behind the wheel. The test will be driving a manual and left knee clearance...but there is a cm more room than the current version. I got driven round a couple of blocks circuit as a front seat passenger and found the car quieter than the current version...depends what tyres we get here.

    Fingers crossed VW Australia don't do something dumb with the specs or pricing as my wife wants one and I might save some cash instead of getting a golf.
