Earlier this month, we revealed indicative local pricing for the new, sixth-generation Volkswagen Polo. And now VW South Africa has shared finalised pricing for its B-segment hatchback.

Interestingly, the confirmed prices have actually dropped slightly over the earlier indicative figures, with four of the five variants falling by a few hundred rand each, and the 1,0 TSI 85 kW Highline DSG derivative by some R1 300.

Volkswagen SA has yet to officially confirm pricing for the Polo GTI, which we earlier heard would cost about R387 500. However, the local arm of the Wolfsburg-based automaker did reveal that the GTI model – which our market previously sourced from Spain – would be built at Uitenhage here in South Africa, alongside the cooking versions.

From what we now understand, the new Polo GTI will be launched in SA in the second quarter of 2018. We have also learnt that an R-Line package (which includes 17-inch alloys, sportier bumpers, a rear spoiler and some added trim) for the Polo will hit the market at the beginning of the second quarter. In addition, VW SA will offer the latest generation of its fully digital Active Info Display as an option on all models bar the Trendline.

Ten exterior paint colours will be available, while all models will come standard with a three-year/120 000 km warranty and a three-year/45 000 km service plan (with intervals of 15 000 km).

Volkswagen Polo 1,0 TSI 70 kW Trendline: R235 900
Volkswagen Polo 1,0 TSI 70 kW Comfortline: R264 700
Volkswagen Polo 1,0 TSI 70 kW Comfortline DSG: R280 700
Volkswagen Polo 1,0 TSI 85 kW Highline: R286 200
Volkswagen Polo 1,0 TSI 85 kW Highline DSG: R302 200
