Volkswagen is bringing more sportiness to its Polo Hatchback, with the introduction of a new R-Line model in the UK. Will it come to the shores of KL? As it is, the car is available for order now with first deliveries expected in July, in the UK.
The R-Line is based on the Polo Match and is available in UK in both three adn five door variants. The engine is a 1.2 litre 105 PS TSI petrol unit linked to a six speed manual gearbox.
The exterior bundles tinted rear windows, sports front bumper, black gloss radiator grille with R-Line badge, deeper side sills and 16 inch Mallory alloy wheels along with a rear bumpuer housing a diffuser and a chrome tail pipe.

Volkswagen says that the 104hp (105PS) TSI engine propels the Polo R-Line to 62mph (100km/h) in 9.7 seconds en route to a top speed of 118mph (190km/h), while returning a combined fuel economy of 53.3 mpg UK and CO2 emissions of 124 g/km.
