Volkswagen has launched the 2023 Polo having already defined its offering for the national market, simplifying the premium compact hatchback to play a more direct role in the mission to replace the Gol.
However, the Polo 2023 will still have an element that will make it more accessible and already promised by the German brand in the presentation, the Polo Track.
The new entry-level 2023 version of the Polo, the Polo Track, will simplify the hatch offering but soften it to not mean a drastic and simple reduction in hardware to make it cheaper.
In this case, when viewed from the outside, bumpers should draw attention to the Polo Track, perhaps with a slightly redesigned version to highlight the version.
However, in giving it a different look, it removes the LED lighting, leaving two halogen bulb parabolas in the new headlights.
VW might even mess up the center grille, but that’s unlikely. Already the Track badge with a cool look on the back can grab attention, as can the patterned appliqué on the sides.
With the stylized hubcaps, the Polo Track will take on its identity while the interior should show up with a highlighted clear panel, but you can add a Track badge somewhere in the set.
The analog cluster remains, but the introductory offer must be attractive, and today multimedia is a strong selling point. Even with a 5-inch screen (6.5 on the Polo MPI), that would help sell it.
As such, Composition Touch with Android Auto and CarPlay should be offered with at least one USB-A input, and “Post Collision Brake” should be disabled.
The old standard steering wheel is an option, with multimedia and phone commands (Bluetooth), height adjustable only.
Mirrors in the color of the car, as well as door handles, can be without turn signals, with headlights altered.
With a height-adjustable driver’s seat, the Polo Track will also have power front windows, power locks, air conditioning, power steering, and Track exclusive mesh seats.
In terms of safety, the Polo Track can contain all four airbags, but it wouldn’t be surprising if it came with just two, while maintaining traction control and stability.
A 1.0 MPI engine with 77 hp will be enough for the mission. on gasoline and 84 hp on ethanol.
options? A package with alloy wheels as well as electric rear windows and mirrors would have made the compact more attractive on offer.
So what do you think the Polo Track will offer in the national market?
