Volkswagen Passengers Cars Malaysia (VPCM), a subsidiary of Volkswagen Group Malaysia, launched another sedan model in the Malaysian market as part of efforts to provide Malaysians with more choices.
The company launched the Polo Sedan, with the car expected to capture the hearts of many Malaysians that have longed to own an affordable continental car.
“The new Polo Sedan does not only fulfill the highest standards of modern automotive engineering but with its timeless design, a level has been reached that is unprecedented in the Malaysian market.
The outstanding active and passive safety, efficient technologies and the high quality of German engineering are groundbreaking for this segment in Malaysia,” said Mr. Ricky Tay, Managing Director Volkswagen Group Malaysia.
“The new Sedan extends Volkswagen’s range of vehicles and builds a bridge from our bestsellers in Malaysia, the Golf and the Polo, to the small family car segment. The Polo Sedan complies with the global quality standards of Volkswagen in every respect, carrying a price tag of RM99, 888.” Mr. Tay added.
Engine and Performance
The Volkswagen Polo Sedan is equipped with a 1.6-litre 105PS petrol injection 16-Valve Multi Point Injection (MPI) engine. This engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which is offered with a Tiptronic option.
Thanks to the engine’s capability of generating 153Nm of torque, this family sedan can accelerate from 0-100kph in 12.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 183kph, giving enough power and torque to tackle hilly areas.
The engine’s fuel efficiency is extraordinary. The Polo Sedan returns a combined fuel consumption of only 6.5 litres/100km.
The Polo Sedan is a well-designed car that features clean lines all over its body that embodies the Volkswagen DNA. The car comes with 15-inch alloy wheels, chrome finish on the front grille and on the front air-dam, trunk and fog light surrounds with height adjustable halogen headlights, and green-tinted heat absorbing glass.
The Polo Sedan will be available in six different colours; Candy White, Flash Red, Terra Beige, Shadow Blue, Reflex Silver, and Deep Black.
The Polo Sedan is stylish, comfortable and exudes the Volkswagen brand experience. The continental style of the vehicle comes with an interior chrome package (chrome surrounds for light switches, AC vents, steering wheel accent, handbrake lever knob and gearshift), instrument cluster with tachometer, speedometer, trip odometer and digital clock, genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel, gearshift knob, handbrake lever and gearshift boot.
Additionally, the Polo Sedan comes with all four one-touch powered windows, height adjustable driver and passenger seat, ‘Metric’ fabric seat upholstery, multi-function display, power door locks, power steering, radio with CD-MP3/WMA player and 4 speakers and rear doors with storage compartments.
Volkswagen takes safety as a primary feature while designing a car, and like all Volkswagen vehicles, a high level of safety is ensured in the Polo Sedan. The car comes with four airbags (driver and front passenger with 2 side airbags), 3-point safety belts for rear outboard occupants, lap belt for rear middle occupant, electronic anti-theft immobiliser, electronic Brake Pressure Distribution (EBD) and pinch guard safety for all 4 powered windows.
