Rumors of an all-electric Volkswagen concept making an appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month have died down since May, but VW is starting to reveal more details on the vehicles that will be on hand am Main. Today, we learn about the Polo Three-Door, a sporty, vaguely coupe-like version of the bestselling Polo that will be available this fall with six different engine options. Three diesel and three petrol options will be offered, with outputs ranging from 60 to 105 PS.
The fuel-conscious VW driver can opt for a BlueMotion version of the Polo Three-Door. The most efficient Polo burns just 3.3 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers. In numbers that most readers will be familiar with, this is the same as 71 mpg (U.S.) and we want to drive one today. This frugal choice puts out 55 kW / 75 PS; not the most powerful engine out there, but when you barely ever need to stop for fuel, the speed of your daily get-up-and-go kind of falls by the wayside. The new Polo base version will start at €12,150 in Germany.
