Volkswagen Polo Mk1

The Volkswagen Polo Mk1 is the first generation of the Volkswagen Polo supermini. It was produced from 1975 until 1981.

The original Polo, a rebadged version of the Audi 50, was introduced in 1975 on mainland Europe and was launched in the UK and the Isle of Man in 1976.

The differences between the Audi and VW models were minor, with the Polo being cheaper and much more basic.

The two cars were initially sold alongside each other, but the Audi 50 never sold as well, and was withdrawn in 1978.

895 cc, producing 40 bhp (30 kW; 41 PS) 1093 cc and 1272 cc engines were used, with the smaller one used only in the Polo hatchback, and the 1272 cc only in the Derby, Audi 50, and the rare Polo GT.
