Arrived in 2001, the VW Polo 9N, or Polo IV, broke with the previous versions. More impresive, it is the biggest of its category. Esthetically, she is recognizable by its radiator grill with four round opticals, like its younger sister, the Lupo. She is available in 2 body cars, 3 or 5 doors, four levels of finishing touche are proposed, from the basic version (Polo) to the 'luxury' version (Carat) including a 'crossover' version (Dune) which was presented in the catalogue during a very short time. Far more expensive than its competitors, the Polo was revised from 2003, not to progress but to propose prices more reasonable. The materials lose quality, and the 'carat' version was removed from the catalogue. However, we note the arrival of a Polo Sport version, equipped with an engine 1.9 TDi 130 and finishing touches equivalent to the luxury version. The real Polo 9N second generation only arrived at the end of 2005. Identifiable by its new radiator grill, which no longer have round opticals, and its rear lights more modern, she matches with the new style of the make. This Polo 9N3 was marked by the arrival of a GTI version, amoung the 7 available finishing touches. This version was equipped with an engine 1.8l Turbo petrol of 150 hp. After 8 years of comercialazition, she was finally replaced by the Polo V in 2009.
