Volkswagen is adding even more style to its popular supermini, with the launch of the Polo R Line, which builds on the impressive specification of the Polo Match with unique styling touches inside and out.
On the outside, the R Line is distinguished by a unique styling pack. This consists of deeper, sportier R Line front and rear bumpers, a black gloss radiator grille with R Line badging, deeper side sills and 16-inch 'Mallory' alloy wheels. From the B-pillars back, the glass is dark-tinted and 65 per cent light-absorbing, while the standard front foglights also include a static cornering function.
Step past the brushed aluminium scuff plates with R Line logos, and inside there are sports seats with 'Kyalami' cloth upholstery and an R Line logo on the headrests, along with a leather-trimmed three-spoke steering wheel with R Line logo and aluminium-capped pedals, while the roof lining is finished in black cloth.
Standard equipment is comprehensive, including an RCD 310 radio/CD player with six speakers and multi-device interface, for plugging in an iPod or other compatible device, 'Climatic' semi-automatic air conditioning, a multifunction trip computer, electric windows (including in the rear on five-door models), height-adjustable front seats, a split-folding rear-seat backrest, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, illuminated vanity mirrors, front and rear reading lights, a tyre pressure monitor and, of course, remote central locking.
The R Line is available with just one engine, the existing 1.2-litre 105 PS TSI petrol unit, with a six-speed manual gearbox. This engine propels the Polo R Line from zero to 62 mph in 9.7 seconds, and on to a top speed of 118 mph. Fuel consumption is 53.3 mpg on the combined cycle, and CO2emissions are 124 g/km.
Prices start at £15,195 on the road for the three-door model, rising to £15,815 for the five-door. The Polo R Line is available to order at Volkswagen Retailers now, with first deliveries expected in July.
How to change steering wheel in a Volkswagen
Thought I should upload this. Short video on how to change or how to remove
the steering wheel in a newer VW. This is a Polo 9n3 Gti. May apply to Golf

2012 Volkswagen CC Driving Scenes
Los Angeles Auto Show -- World premiere of the new Volkswagen CC
Saloon with the lines of a sports car:
World premiere of the new Volkswagen CC in Los Angeles
CC debuts with new styling and innovative assistance systems
Fatigue detection and bi-xenon headlights are standard
Wolfsburg / Los Angeles, 16 November 2011 - When the Volkswagen CC made its
debut four years ago, it was the world's first four-door coupé in the
30,000 to 40,000 dollar and euro class. From this niche, a new segment
quickly developed -- to date, nearly 270,000 people around the globe have
chosen the saloon with the stylish lines of a sports car. They are car
drivers who love the charm of a coupé but also value space for at least 4
persons and 4 doors. Now, Volkswagen is presenting a technically and
visually updated version of the popular business vehicle at the Los Angeles
Auto Show (18 to 27 November). With new front and rear styling, the new
Volkswagen CC design makes an even bolder move towards the automotive
luxury class. No less is true of its extended range of standard equipment,
which now includes such features as bi-xenon headlights with static
cornering lights and a new LED rear lighting design. Also standard: fatigue
detection, RCD 310 radio-CD system, stainless steel door sill plates and
safety head restraints (front seats) with additional front-rear adjustment.
In addition, new assistance systems are making their way into the CC. They
include optional technologies such as Side Assist Plus including Lane
Assist (warns of vehicles in blind spots and supports the driver via
steering intervention to avoid an accident), Dynamic Light Assist
(automatic main beam control) and a camera-based traffic sign detection
system. Meanwhile, the 'climate seat' with integrated massage function
Market launch -- starts in February
Volkswagen will first offer the new CC in February 2012 in Germany, then in
stages across Europe, America, Russia, China (local version starting in
2013) and all other sales regions relevant to this vehicle class.
140 PS to 300 PS -- efficient and sporty engines
The CC will be powered by innovative petrol and diesel direct-injection
engines; all of the diesels (TDI) are equipped with a Stop/Start system and
a battery regeneration mode (which recovers braking energy) as standard
equipment. All petrol engines also have battery regeneration functionality.
The TDI engines output 103 kW / 140 PS and 125 kW / 170 PS. The petrol
engines of the European CC versions develop an impressive 118 kW / 160 PS,
155 kW / 210 PS and 220 kW / 300 PS of power. In the USA, the Volkswagen
will once again launch with 147 kW / 200 PS (TSI) and 206 kW / 280 PS (FSI)
petrol engines. All engines up to 210 PS may be combined with a dual clutch
gearbox (DSG) as an option. The European six-cylinder version (300 PS) is
delivered with DSG and 4MOTION all-wheel drive as standard equipment. In
the case of the 280 PS US-CC that also sports all-wheel drive, a torque
converter automatic is used. All engines go to work with excellent
efficiency: the 140 PS TDI offered in Europe, for example, together with a
manual six-speed gearbox consumes just 4.7 l/100 km (equivalent to 125 g/km
CO2); with DSG fuel consumption is 5.3 l/100 km. The 200 PS TSI -- a
popular engine in America -- attains a fuel economy of 21 (City) / 33 mpg
(Highway) with manual gearbox and 22 / 31 mpg in the DSG version.
Design -- Volkswagen CC shifts segment boundaries
The team led by Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design for the Volkswagen Brand,
reworked the front and rear body sections of the Volkswagen CC. This has
given the Volkswagen an even more elegant yet dynamic overall image. New
alloy wheels and car colours complement other exterior modifications.
Front end. In front, the eye is draw to the new designs of the radiator
grille, bi-xenon headlights and bonnet. Optional LED daytime running lights
are integrated in the headlight housings. Even more than on the previous
model, the entire area of the new front bumper, headlights and radiator
grille exhibits clean lines that correspond 1:1 to Volkswagen 'design DNA'
styling. This DNA is marked by such characteristics as an emphasis on
horizontal lines and a concise harmony of the headlights and radiator
grille. The latter is no longer designed as a separate V framed by elements
in the body colour, rather it forms a visually continuous, charismatic band
together with the headlights. Similar to the US-Passat and the Phaeton, the
new Volkswagen CC also has an extra air intake beneath the body-coloured
bumper. 'Winglets' are integrated in this intake with fog lights arranged
next to them.
