Hints of a 2019 Volkswagen Polo SUV Gradually Appearing on the Streets

We have been getting more and more hints of a 2019 Volkswagen Polo SUV car. We spotted a camouflaged version of a car on the streets. People are believing in this idea more and more after a new set of spy photos has appeared. The story about the first VW SUV is very interesting. It actually supports our claims that they are going to base it on their new Polo model.

First, the VW T-Cross Breeze concept model showcased at the Geneva Auto Show this year. This is a drop top model. However, the designers made it clear that this car is a basis for the SUV vehicle they have been developing. Also it is a way for them to introduce a new design language that they have been working on. This should appear on future Volkswagen models.

Secondly, the next-gen Volkswagen Polo should also appear. So many people have already thought that the mule wearing the camo is a next-generation Polo. But, upon closer inspection we noticed this was a different body. Namely a three-door car which reminds us on a Golf car.

So getting back to the idea of an SUV, the test mule is actually a covered up VW Polo SUV. This led us to believe differently. It is a great tactic from the designing crew. Yet it is only with a sharp eye that one was going to notice this.

It is very hard to determine how the 2019 Volkswagen Polo SUV may look alone on these facts. But we have looked to our rendering team to help us provide a possible picture of a model. We are sure this one is coming out really soon.

How will the Exterior of the new SUV Look?

The 2019 Volkswagen Polo SUV is covered with a lot of camo. It is pretty clear, though, that we are looking at a four-door SUV. There are some parts that we could discern and guess based on the current design. But some of them the company will only develop in the future.

The hood looks as if they have elevated it a bit. And we notice wrap around headlights as well. A large grille is imminent and with it we probably should expect larger air damns as well.

The side of the car shows us some sleek side view mirrors. They repositioned the mirrors and mounted within the front door parts. The lines of the side of the car are not recognizable for now. However, they seem to be soft and smooth. They may run from the headlights all the way back to the taillights.

This also leads us to believe that the lower part of the vehicle will have the same contour as the wheel well.

There is a lot of padding in the back. But even with those we are pretty certain that the back part is going to have a steep grade with a flat edge just below the window part.

We are expecting two piece taillights. There also seems that a ligh runs all the way the length of the hatch as well. The rear fascia is smooth and they might place a one character line there. But we cannot see them because the camo for now.

What Changes will the Inside of the 2019 Volkswagen Polo SUV Add?

The spy photos of the 2019 Volkswagen Polo SUV do not show anything significant about the interior of the car. However, we can look for inspiration in the Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze concept. We expect a very similar center console along with the door panelst.

Also, we hope to see the digital gauge cluster. We saw this one in the concept that, although toned down a bit, turned out to be great for the vehicle. This also places the HMI as one of the crucial parts of the car. And this car might also add an instrument cluster with two screens which would help with decluttering the inside.

They may add a different layout. But generally it will have the same elements. The bottom line is that the Polo SUV needs and should be more technologically advanced compared to the base Polo. And we will have to wait and see what they decide to put into it.

What About the Drivetrain?

The 2019 Volkswagen Polo SUV is still in its testing phase so it is pretty hard to say which engine is going to be used for it. The old Polo has a range of some solid engines and some of them could make a crossover and be used here for this version of the car.

The engines that we can see in the old VW Polo include a 1.0-liter gasoline which is capable of making 93 hp, a 108 horsepower 1.0-liter TSI engine, a 1.2-liter TSI which makes 88 horses and a 1.4-liter TSI that makes  147 hp or the 1.8-liter TSI  with 189 hp. Some of them might be considered for the SUV and but it is still a long way until the car gets to be made. So there are even some other options which might mean a completely new engine being developed.

Price Tag

Estimating the price for the 2019 Volkswagen Polo SUV is not easy to do in this phase. There is a lot that has to be considered and a lot which we have to take into account. Based on the given lineup and the competing SUV cars we are probably looking at a figure of about $27,000, but it all might change until the car is released for real.


Volkswagen will enter into the SUV segment with its 2019 Volkswagen Polo SUV. It is going to be a vehicle which opens the door for them and which will also define how future cars are going to fare. Let’s not further, this car will probably carry the latest VW design which they are proudly announcing for the future lineup. So the vehicles which they are probably going to go against include the Honda HR-V and the Mazda CX-3 which are some of the featured models in the market.
