The new VW Polo with the turbocharged 95 hp 1.0-litre petrol unit finally moves into the three-digit horsepower range: Ventura’s performance tuning box strengthens VW’s 5-door hatchback with additional +23 hp more power and +35 Nm (26 ft lb) more torque. The sixth-generation model of the Polo now generates 118 hp and 210 Nm (155 ft lb).
VW tuning: PowerControl X leads to confident sportiness
Last year, more than 47,000 Volkswagen Polos were sold in the UK. The car is firmly established as the seventh most sold car in 2017, behind the Ford Fiesta or Vauxhall Corsa. The new Polo generation is now even longer and wider than its predecessors. Known as a versatile companion for everyday life, the VW Polo now also offers more dynamics with the chip tuning from Ventura: The performance tuning box is connected to the central sensors of the engine management system, including boost pressure, camshaft and intake manifold pressure.
Immediately the incoming signals are recorded, optimized and passed on to the ECU. Therefore, the VW Polo overtakes the next higher standard engine of 115 hp – the Ventura tuning develops a real sports spirit in the small car of VW, which is built in Pamplona, Spain.
