Kaluga is the birth place for the Saloon. A new assembly line at Volkswagen AG’s plant equipped the car with a new 1.6-litre Otto engine that produces 77kW/105 PS. Combination of 6 gear automatic and 5 gear manual gearboxes with a sequential shift function, makes Volkswagen to be the first manufacturer presenting an up-to-date automatic gearbox to the Russian customers.

Safety measures are brought to its higher level in Trendline basic version. All five passengers are protected with head rest, two airbags and a three-point seatbelt. The Comfordline has an ABS equipped as standard. Additional safety systems are installed in the Highline top version that is normally not available in this class, such as ESP and side air-bags.

Street and climate conditions in Russia require specific performances from the vehicle in order to drive efficiently and safe; these performances are required from the Russian drivers as well. The Saloon’s development took this fact carefully under consideration. There have been long term tests where different climate zones have been conducted, and Russia’s most ferocious street conditions examined. Petrol quality went under testing too. A reliable up-to-date engine with non-corrosive body, along with a wheel suspension geared to suit the bad roads, is built in this vehicle. To fight the fierce winter weather, robust paint is used for the paint job and highly resistant chrome parts.

The Volkswagen Polo Saloon received high marks from Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, one of the members of the Volkswagen’s Board of Management responsible for the development. He said that high standards in modern engineering are not the only achievement here. Impressive active and passive safeties are astonishing in this class. Efficient technology contributes to the car’s contemporary and future purpose.
