Vw Polo R confirmed for 2012

We’ve heard some rumors regarding an ‘R’ version of the Vw Polo, but the sources were not too credible! Now it appears that this little hot hatch will become official. According to German newspaper Bild, Volkswagen will build the Polo R and this will hit the dealerships in spring 2012.

The Polo R will carry a 1.4-liter twin-turbo engine capable to deliver an impressive 190 hp but also a fuel consumption of less than 7 l/100 km. Due to the big amount of power, the vehicle will also carry an electronic differential lock that will be capable to deliver the 190 hp to the front wheels. The design of the little sporty hatchback, will be inspired by the Scirocco R and Golf R, so expect to see a real masterpiece. Regarding the price, our sources say that the Polo R will carry a price tag of €22,500.
