Motoring enthusiasts going to the Royal County of Berkshire Show will have the honour of being the first people in the country to see the eagerly anticipated new Volkswagen Polo, a month ahead of its official launch.

The latest model is being unveiled at the show by Newbury’s Volkswagen retailer Ridgeway at an exhibition of the entire Volkswagen range, including the iconic Golf and Beetle, sporty Scirocco and 4x4s Tiguan and Touareg.

The 5 door 1.2 Moda Polo in Deep Black Pearl will be available for show visitors to look at inside and out and arrange test drives with Ridgeway when the model goes on sale in October.

Ridgeway Volkswagen’s brand manager, Simon Smith, said: “It is a huge honour to be the first retailer in the country to unveil the new Polo and an exciting opportunity for the people of Berkshire.

“Fans of Polo will not be disappointed; the latest model has a stylish new look and is the most technically advanced version yet, but it remains true to the brand’s core values of safety, reliability, quality and value for money.”

Despite the increase in size, the new Polo is lighter than the model it replaces and offers improved fuel economy and emissions.

The fifth generation Polo goes on sale on the 16th October. To mark its launch Ridgeway will also be hosting the ‘Timeless Polo Film Festival’ to celebrate the classic look of Polo. Local people will be asked to vote on their favourite film and the winner will be shown at a free viewing at a nearby cinema.

For the full range of new Volkswagens and a large range of approved used Volkswagens visit Ridgeway Newbury on Newbury Motor Park, The Triangle, Newbury. For more information call 0844 846 2128.
