Volkswagen has unveiled the new three-door Polo, which will go on sale in January 2010 with prices ranging from around £9200 to £14,000.

The new supermini will be built in Volkswagen’s Pamplona factory in Spain, and shares its platform with the five-door Polo.  Fitted as standard will be four airbags, ABS, ESP, hydraulic brake assist, a CD player, speed sensitive power steering and electric windows. Gone are the days of stripped-out superminis...

In SE trim the three-door Polo will also come with air-conditioning, 15-inch alloys and iPod connectivity. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-range SEL features 16-inch rims, fog lights, leather cladding on the steering wheel, gearstick and handbrake, a multifunction computer and a tyre pressure warning indicator.

Two common rail 1.6-litre diesel engines will be available at launch in addition to 1.2 and 1.4-litre petrol motors, all of which comply with Euro V emissions regulation.  A new 104bhp 1.2-litre turbocharged TSI unit will follow soon after.

See the new VW Polo three-door at the forthcoming Frankfurt motor show 2009.
