The new model features modifications to VW’s diesel engine which result in an official fuel consumption figure of 72 mpg and 102 g/km of carbon dioxide.
The 78bhp 1.4-litre, three-cylinder TDI engine is fitted with electronically controlled, high-pressure direct injection.
VW has also made slight modification to the Polo’s body design in order to reduce drag.
Safety features include twin front and side airbags for the driver and front seat passenger, ABS with brake assist and ISOFIX preparation as standard.
The Polo BlueMotion is set to arrive in the UK this summer with prices due to be announced closer to launch.
