A huge billboard rounding a curve on the exhibition hall housing the Geneva Motor Show features an advertisement for the new Volkswagen Polo.

According to WorldCarFans, the new Polo is still a very small car, its length has been extended by slightly over one inch. Quality and feel of the new model is said to be improved throughout, with some speculating it could easily pass as a small Audi. VW's small cars - at least in the U.S. - have long possessed the look and feel of the VW Group's luxury brand. WCF feels the improvements might well help the new Polo handily outclass competitors like the Toyota Yaris and Ford Fiesta. A GTI model with a 170-hp turbo, direct-injected four is expected for 2010.

For Europe, a 1.2-liter, 60- or 70-hp gasoline engine, and a 1.6-liter TDI turbo diesel with 75-, 90-, or 105-hp will be offered. Some models will feature engine stop/start, Polo BlueMotion (ultra-frugal diesel model), and the new 7-speed dual clutch automated manual (DSG).
