KLIMS13 has seen the best of soon to be launched models including the 2014 Volkswagen Polo Hatchback. Though we could see this coming, the entire package was nice and refreshing. There are few similarities of this hatchback with its sedan sister which was launched last month, the car has got new exciting looks and safety measures.
It is just amazing to see how a car weighing 1020 kgs goes from 0 to 100Km/h in 11.1 seconds. While the top speed is 184km/h, the combined fuel consumption is 3.6litres per 100 km giving a really good average. The silver headlamp housings, rear bumper shape and the signal lamps on the fender distinguish it from the sedan. Though the 1.6 litre MPI engine, RCD 320 radio and Volkswagen badge on the bottom left of the tailgate is still the same. The dual airbags, four point rear parking sensors, brake assist and ISOFIX child seat anchors make it safer to drive. In case of an accident, the hazard lights turn on, and Intelligent crash response system unlocks the door.
The car is ready to go on sale in Malaysia early next year and will soon be seen across the world. Reasonably priced at RM85,888 on-the-road without insurance, the 2014 Volkswagen Polo hatchback is truly worth the money.
