Head of Volkswagen Russia Pierre Boutin says: «The Polo has been the Volkswagen brand’s bestseller in Russia since its start of production in 2010. We continue to offer Russian customers new versions of the Polo, with the milestone Polo LIFE being a prominent specimen of this model. Our customers appreciate the Polo for its reliability, comfort and driving qualities making the Polo the best in its class and the leader in comparative tests. With a reasonable cost of ownership added, you can understand why the Polo became one of the most popular sedans in Russia.»
