The new VW Scirocco R is going to get some company from this little brother – based on the all-new Polo, a coupe version is reported to be crawling towards a VW production line.


A three-door version of the popular Polo will make its world debut at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show, but don't merely expect a 4-door model with the rear door slashed. Sources report the new coupe will look aggressive and racy, as it might be sold as a mini Scirocco.

The Bluesport Concept seen at the Detroit expo this year, lends its front end to the new car while tapered side windows and muscular rear haunches are derived from the Scirocco.

It needs to be fast, and for that condition to be satisfied arrives power and loads of it under the bonnet. A 1.4-litre supercharged and turbocharged 178bhp unit should be the candidate. The gearbox will be the same seven-speed DSG box that would be used on the Polo GTI version in the future.
