The Polo Twist

Volkswagen is offering its customers even better value this summer with the limited edition Polo Twist, on sale from today. Starting from £8,995 on the road, the Twist offers extra equipment and a significant price saving compared with the equivalent-engined Polo S model.

The Twist is a stylish way to tackle city streets, with distinctive 14" ‘Sao Paulo’ alloy wheels and a choice of metallic or pearl effect paint as standard. This is in addition to the comprehensive list of Polo S standard features, such as semi-automatic climate control; electric front windows; ABS anti-lock brakes; driver’s and front passenger’s airbags with front seat side airbags; central locking; and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors. A chrome ‘Twist’ badge on the tailgate further distinguishes the new model.

A range of four advanced and efficient engines is available for the Polo Twist:

1.2-litre 65 PS and 1.4-litre 75 PS petrol units, and 1.9-litre SDI 64 PS and 1.4-litre TDI 75 PS diesel powerplants. The 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre TDI PD feature three cylinders for particularly impressive fuel economy, yet with the refinement and performance to match four cylinder rivals. All engines are fitted with five-speed manual gearboxes as standard, while the 1.4-litre petrol engine is also available with four-speed automatic transmission.

The Twist, as featured in the Volkswagen 2004 Price List (Issue 2) is priced at £415 less than the equivalent Polo S, but with the extra equipment it represents an even more significant saving of over £1,000 on each model. It will be on sale until the end of the year.
