Volkswagen is renewing its family of Polo superminis and will debut the new Polo TSI BlueMotion, TDI BlueMotion, BlueGT and CrossPolo at the Geneva Motor Show. They will also show off the R-Line packages alongside regular models of the series.
The CrossPolo has new 17 inch wheels, two fresh body colors, different silver exterior accents and a newly designed steering wheel and gear and parking brake lever with new interior fabrics. It can come in two TDI diesels and a turbocharged TSI petrol engine.
The previous diesel-engine Polo BlueMotion will come with a petrol-fueled 89hp (90PS) 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder TSI model that has a combined fuel consumption of 4.1 l/100 km (equal to 57.4mpg US or 68.9 mpg UK), elsewhere, it will also offer a Polo BlueMotion TDI.
The Polo BlueMotion TDI employs a new 74hp (75PS) 1.4-liter three-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that helps improve fuel economy by 0.2l/100km to 3.1l/100km (75.8mpg US or 91.1mpg UK), with the car's 45-liter (11.9 gallons US) tank promising an impressive autonomy of 1,400km (870 miles).
For a sportier range, there's the Polo BlueGT that gains 10hp from the tweaked 1.4-liter turbocharged four-pot petrol engine with cylinder deactivation that now delivers 148hp (150PS) and 250Nm of torque, connected to either a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 7-speed dual clutch transmission.

Whatever the reason, you are still stuck with a car you can’t use. What can you do with it? What is junk to you can be a gold mine to someone else. Read more
Drivers know that car accidents can be really expensive in terms of paying for repairs especially when other drivers involved in such do not have any insurance of their own. When other drivers have not had insurance it meant the all insured driver would end up losing out financially, either by having to pay higher levels of excess or via higher premium costs. However there are now legal ways, in which costs can be recovered from the uninsured drivers involved in traffic accidents. Recovering costs is something that careful and insured drivers should do after uninsured drivers have caused or contributed to accidents. The issue can be serious for drivers that are faced with repair costs when they did not cause the damage in the first place. Read more
