You're looking at the all-new four-door sedan version of the latest Volkswagen Polo that was officially revealed in a world premiere in Moscow. The new Polo Saloon extends the German firm's range of sedans into the small car segment and will be built on a completely new assembly line at Volkswagen AG's plant in Kaluga, Russia.

VW says that the Polo Saloon is the first car in the history of the brand to have been developed specially for the Russian market, bearing in mind its specific climate and street conditions. Among other things, this translates to the use of more robust paints and chrome parts that are highly resistant to aggressive agents, and a suspension geared to bad roads.

In Russia, the Polo sedan will be offered with a new 1.6-litre Otto engine producing 105-horsepower. It can be combined with either a 5 speed manual or a 6 speed Tiptronic gearbox. The small sedan measures 4.38m (L) x 1.7m (B) x 1.46m (H). It will be available in three trim levels - Trendline, Comfortline and the range-topping Highline that comes with standard side air-bags and ESP.

The company did not release any more details on the car nor did it say if it will be available in other markets outside Russia. A 1.2 TSI with 7 speed DSG equipped polo Saloon would be a good alternative to the Vios and City in my opinion.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
