VW has just released new detailed information regarding the new generation 2011 Volkswagen CrossPolo.  
When compared to the previous model the new Volkswagen CrossPolo has gained 15 mm in height, and under the bonnet the company’s ‘all-terrain’ looking car can feature one of the six available engine choices (3 petrol and 3 diesel), with power ranging from 70 PS (51 kW) to 105 PS (77 kW).
All three diesel versions 2011 Volkswagen CrossPolo need just 4.3-litres of fuel per 100 Km while the turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol variant developing 105 PS covers 100 Km on 5.5-litres of fuel and accelerates from 0 to 100 Km/g in 9.9 seconds.
The Volkswagen CrossPolo price was not announced yet.
Volkswagen press release :
Wolfsburg, 14 June 2010 – The next generation CrossPolo is ready for new
adventures. After the Polo base version presented in 2009 and the Polo
BlueMotion (debut in 2010) with its superior and possibly
record-breaking fuel efficiency, and the Polo GTI that is also launching
at this time, the CrossPolo now completes the series as a fourth model.
With its refreshingly cheeky all-terrain look, unique world of colours
and features, and a higher ride height (15 millimetre gain), the
CrossPolo is very appealing as one of the most unconventional vehicles
in its class.
This all-rounder is powered by extremely fuel-efficient engines with a
power range from 51 kW / 70 PS to 77 kW / 105 PS. Buyers can choose
from three petrol and three common rail TDI engines. Two of the six
engines can be ordered with a 7-speed DSG, like the one used on vehicles
such as the Polo GTI.
Fun and Cross: From special
edition to production model

The new CrossPolo continues
in the tradition of its successful predecessors: the Polo Fun and the
first generation CrossPolo derived from it. Originally, a production run
of only 5,000 units was planned for the special edition Polo Fun, but
great demand exploded all forecasts. The consequence: the step was taken
from special edition to production model and to the Cross version.
Tough qualities and lifestyle character

rugged-sporty character of the CrossPolo – always produced as a
five-door – are reflected in many of its details. Especially striking:
the individually styled front apron – in anthracite colour – with
integrated front fog lights and large air inlet at the centre. It gets a
black honeycomb insert bordered by fine chrome trim. Towards its lower
edge, the bumper finishes with a section in light silver with the visual
appearance of underbody protection. Taken from classic Polo styling are
the upper radiator grille with its chrome inlay and the VW logo
integrated here; the same applies to the dual headlights with standard
daytime running lights.
The side profile of the CrossPolo also
shows very tough qualities. Here sporty black wheelarch extensions and
coordinated body sills set the styling. The latter continue visually
into the lower door area. In off-road driving and in the jungle of
metropolitan parking spaces, these rugged plastic guards protect the car
from damage. Fitting the character of the CrossPolo are the 17-inch
alloy wheels ("Budapest" style) in 5-spoke design with tyres in 215/40
Another unmistakable characteristic of the CrossPolo: the
silver anodized roof rails. They are a traditional feature on this
model, and are certainly not just decorative. They can be used to mount
roof boxes and carrier systems with a weight of up to 75 kilograms.
Colour coordinated with the roof railing, like on the previous model:
the door mirrors that are always painted in silver. At the rear, the
CrossPolo continues the rugged all-terrain look in the bumper, whose
lower section is also designed in a black, rugged plastic. At its
centre, a separate section painted in silver catches the eye that is
styled to look like a diffuser.
Six exterior colours accentuate
the powerful style of the CrossPolo; offered exclusively on the new
Volkswagen are the colours "Magma Orange" and "Terra Beige Metallic".
Across the board, the upper areas of the bumpers and handles (door,
tailgate) are painted in body colour, while the cover trim of the B and C
pillars and the window frames are treated in a high-gloss black.
Exciting and versatile

The high-end interior of the
CrossPolo is a fitting match to the all-terrain look of the exterior.
Here it is primarily the two-tone fabrics of the sport seats, the rear
bench and the door trim that create a friendly and youthful ambiance. Up
to four different colour trims are available, depending on the exterior
colour. While the outer areas of the seats are always in anthracite,
customers can choose from the colours "Hot Orange", "Orange", "Latte
Macchiato" and "Grey" for the inner seat panels and middle sections of
the door trim panels. On seat contact surfaces for the back and legs the
fabrics ("Dimension" pattern) all have a black webbed structure, making
them more durable. The "CrossPolo" signature is embroidered into the
backrests of the front seats.
Throughout the cockpit, the
materials are friendly to the touch. Take the steering wheel: It has a
fine perforated leather cover; the steering wheel spokes are produced
from a brushed chrome application. The seams of the steering wheel cover
and the leather-trimmed parking brake handle are given the colour of
the interior trim. The CrossPolo’s high level of quality is illustrated
by the dashboard; it is finished in "Slush" technology, which produces
soft surfaces that are pleasant to the touch.
The CrossPolo has an
ample array of standard equipment. In the interior, specific standard
features include height-adjustable sport seats, an asymmetrically split
rear bench and backrest, pockets on the backs of the front seats and
sliding drawers under them, leather-trimmed steering wheel, centre
armrest in front (with storage compartment), pedal caps in aluminium
look and chrome on various switches and components. The latter include
the door handles, surrounds for the window lift switches and air vents.
Also standard: electric adjustable and heated door mirrors, electric
window lifts all around, illuminated make-up mirrors in the sun visors,
multi-function display including tyre pressure monitoring (tyre pressure
monitoring system, TPMS) and central locking with RF remote control.
car qualities: Cargo space increases up to 952 litres

new CrossPolo also shows off its versatile talents when it comes to
space and efficient space utilisation. As mentioned, the rear bench can
be folded with a standard 60:40 split. When it is completely folded, the
car’s cargo capacity increases from 280 to 952 litres. The dual cargo
floor – adjustable to two height levels – creates a continuously level
loading surface. Four tie-down eyes simplify secure fastening of the
cargo to be transported, while two hooks in the side trim panels keep
bags from tipping over.
Engine variety: Three
petrol, three diesel and one 7-speed DSG

The six engines
of the CrossPolo have power levels between 51 kW / 70 PS and 77 kW / 105
PS. The entry level among the petrol engines is represented by the
70-PS version with a 1.2 litre displacement. Following at the next level
is a 1.4-litre engine with 63 kW / 85 PS. The top petrol engine is the
new 1.2 TSI with the mentioned 105 PS. This turbocharged
direct-injection petrol engine accelerates the CrossPolo to 100 km/h in
9.9 seconds, reaches a respectable top speed of 188 km/h, yet has a
combined fuel consumption of just 5.5 litres of fuel (equivalent to 128
g/km CO2). The highlight here: The Volkswagen not only attains these
values in conjunction with the standard 6-speed gearbox, but also with
the optional 7-speed DSG, an automatic. Also deliverable as an optional
DSG version is the CrossPolo with 85 PS.
Among the quietest
engines of their kind are the three common rail, direct-injection
turbodiesels (TDI) fitted with a particulate filter. All engines have
1.6 litre displacement and are available at the power levels 55 kW / 75
PS, 66 kW / 90 PS and 77 kW / 105 PS. All three variants need just 4.3
litres of diesel per 100 km in combined mode and emit just 113 grams CO2
per kilometre. The 90-PS version can also be combined with the direct
shift gearbox as an option; in this case, combined fuel consumption is
4.6 l/100 km. All CrossPolo engines meet the limits of the Euro-5
emissions standard.
