"Classic Volkswagen": specifications of a popular car
"Classic Volkswagen" is a compact carGerman manufacture which is known to us since 1975. It was released in the sedan version. This is a fairly well-known model, and in 2010 it even became the car of the year in the world and in Europe. In general, really worthy of the unit. And for this reason it is worth to tell about it in more detail.
The beginning of history
First, manufacturers produced this carexclusively in the hatchback version. And in 1995, "Classic Volkswagen" has already started to appear. This version was produced in Spain. It was almost half a meter longer than its predecessor, and besides, the car really got better and more spacious, mainly thanks to the enlarged base. Inside, there was so much free space that in the back seat could easily accommodate four people. By the way, in the same time interval in Frankfurt was presented a new car called Caddy. This is a cargo-passenger car, which many mistakenly perceive as another Volkswagen Polo Classic. But it is worth noting that this car has nothing to do with it, and, of course, there are no similarities between them either.
"Volkswagen Polo Classic" received, firstly,a brand-new 1.9 liter turbodiesel. This engine had a direct fuel injection TDI and good power for that time - 90 horsepower. By the way, manufacturers also gave potential customers the opportunity to purchase another version, with a gasoline engine. It was 1.4-liter, less power - only 60 "horses". And, finally, you could buy a car with a third version of the engine - a 1.6-liter motor for 75 liters. from. In principle, this car was quickly and well received in the rapidly developing and growing market of modern (at that time) and compact sedans. "Classic Volkswagen" perfectly fitted into a number of those models that were oriented mainly to young families, and became beloved and revered among motorists.
In October, a new "Classic Volkswagen", andhis name was now different - Polo BlueMotion. It is a car with a reduced negative impact on the environment. This version was equipped with a new turbodiesel engine of 1.2 liters with reduced idling speed. By the way, the gearbox has been reduced gear ratios.
Energy recovery in the enginetransmitted a large voltage to the generator, thereby charging the battery when the car brakes. Then, when there was further overclocking, the generator was switched off, thereby reducing the load on the motor. Also, a start / stop system was introduced. It was she who stopped the engine when the Volkswagen Polo Classic stopped. The motor, by the way, is immediately started, as soon as the brake pedal is released, but this is only in those machines where the automatic box is. And in the case of mechanics this happens, as soon as the driver presses on the clutch. In general, quite useful and convenient function.
Finally I would like to say about such a model,as Cross Polo. This car appeared in the summer of 2010 was recognized as one of the most original in its class. Ground clearance manufacturers increased by 15 millimeters, plus all, experts decided to endow the model with individual details that attract attention. These include, for example, a front bumper with a large air intake. Also, his image is underlined by fog lights, plastic arches expanders that go into the protection of thresholds and doors, black rims of the central pillars. A salon car, by the way, designed, like an off-road vehicle. Plus, the model had several engine options - starting at 70 liters. from. and ending with 105. A good car, not without reason it quickly became popular and popular.
