Volkswagen is developing a Polo R with 300 HP, what Will come to production?

Volkswagen is testing prototypes of the Polo R equipped with a 2.0-liter engine and a power close to 300 HP, in order to evaluate their possible arrival on the market.

Volkswagen already is testing prototypes of a Polo R is a high-performance to evaluate their behavior, although by the time they have not taken the decision to bring it to production. And with the current Polo GTI rolling the 200 HP, the arrival of a version more radical of the subcompact German could raise his power to an extent never seen in this model.

according to recent reports, the project in which the German firm is evaluating a possible Volkswagen Polo R, a model that will use a turbo engine of 4 cylinders and 2.0 litres, develop a power close to the 300 HP.

it Is the same driver used by the Golf R and taking into consideration that the new Polo is built on the basis of the modular platform MQB, leaves the doors open to the Polo R may also inherit the system all-wheel drive 4Motion.

however, it seems predictable that the German brand keep only the front-wheel-drive in the Polo, so as to achieve and sustain lower costs of production, as a Polo R with engine 300 HP and awd, it could be as expensive as its big brother the Golf, and this is precisely the greatest of the obstacles facing this project.

however, the possible use of this mechanic with 300 HP in other vehicles of the Volkswagen Group, in the most radical versions of the models of SEAT and Škoda, could be the key for the project Polo R to be feasible.

The German firm will focus on expand the family of models “R” with new members as the T-Roc-R and even the Tiguan R and Touareg R. 2018 could be the year that the Volkswagen Polo R see The Light, finally, if the German group decides to continue forward with this project, that among the enthusiasts of the hatchbacks sports surely have good reception.
