Pricing and specification confirmed for the VW Polo R Line

The racy looking VW Polo R Line supermini has been announced.

Available in both three and five-door body styles, the R Line is based on Match trim, but adds a unique bodykit with unique front and rear bumpers, 16-inch alloy wheels and a gloss-black front grille. The front foglamps on the R have a cornering function added, while privacy glass complements the black detailing and R badging. 

The Polo R Line comes with remote central locking, while inside there are cloth sport seats, a black rooflining and a leather trimmed steering wheel. Aluminium-capped pedals and scuff plates finish the R look inside, where there is also a six-speaker stereo with iPod connectivity, semi-automatic air-conditioning, a trip computer and full electric windows on the five-door version. 

All VW Polo R Lines are powered by the 104bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine with a six-speed manual transmission. Performance is identical to the Polo SEL, with a 0-62mph time of 9.7 seconds and a top of 118mph, while it returns 53.3mpg with 124g/km.

Pricing starts at £15,195 for the three-door and £15,815 for the five-door. The VW Polo R Line is on sale now with deliveries staring in July.
