VW CrossPolo



Lifestyle-oriented all-around talent with can-do qualities

VW Cross Polo

The design and equipment of the CrossPolo was developed by Volkswagen Individual and Volkswagen suggests that it has unique visual characteristics resembling a small SUV

An increase in height of 70 millimeters lets the CrossPolo stand out of the sea of compacts
In February the new CrossPolo, developed by Volkswagen Individual, will follow its extremely successful predecessor, the Polo Fun. Designed in the style of a small SUV, the distinctive four-door with a large hatchback presents itself as a practical and lifestyle-oriented all-around talent with can-do qualities.

Thanks to its 15 millimeter increased ground clearance, the front-wheel drive CrossPolo manages even the roughest roads competently. With its new 17” alloy wheels, robust and color-coordinated body-mounted parts, the avant-garde Volkswagen visually stands out of the sea of compacts. Special seat covers and chrome ornaments mark the distinguished character of the multifunctional CrossPolo.

Five motors with a power range from 47 kW to 74 kW
The engine line-up is comprised of three gas fuel engines (47 kW / 64 PS, 55 kW / 75 PS, 74 kW / 100 PS) and two turbo diesel direct fuel injectors (51 kW / 70 PS and 74 kW / 100 PS). It goes without saying that all motors comply with the Euro4 emission standards. Even in the initial phase, the 55 kW gas fuel engine is optionally available with an automatic transmission.

Including the roof railing there are an extra 70 millimeters of height
As a result of a modified chassis and a practical roof railing that comes standard, the CrossPolo gained significant height. The chassis and wheels alone add an additional 32 millimeters. Measured up to the roof railing, the CrossPolo is a full 70 millimeter higher than the classical version of the series. All of this gives it a completely unique character.

The robust, avant-garde character of the CrossPolo can also be seen in the details. Some examples: The outside mirrors are painted metallic silver and match the silver roof railing. The metal theme is also an element in the design of the modified front spoiler: The trapeze-shaped center air vent received a matte aluminum-look frame which is shaped to resemble a robust underride protection. The low-lying fog lights next to it come standard.

Just like the exterior, the interior has also undergone several modifications. The unique style of the versatile CrossPolo is marked by the special fabric seat covers, the “sport comfort” seats that are color coordinated with the body paint and the chrome trim.

“Cross” is a unique product brand like the “GTI” or “R”
The name “Cross” represents an independent product brand like “GTI” or “R” with a specific design as well as an equipment range specially developed for the CrossPolo. Among the features are, a central locking system with remote control, power windows in the front and back as well as a driver seat with adjustable height and a drawer located underneath.
