Volkswagen is planning on launching an All Wheel Drive version of Polo. Though exact time of launch is not specified, Ulrich Hackenberg, Head of R&D has suggested such a model which may be welcomed in some countries. This will not be a first such offering from Volkswagen Group who has already seen an AWD in Audi A1 quattro which is based on a PQ25 platform also used in the Polo.
