The car, which appears to be a base model three-door, if the plastic wheel trims are anything to go by, shows the latest Volkswagen styling cues, as recently seen on Volkswagen Golf and Volkswagen Transporter models, have now found their way to the brand's smaller offering.

The all-new Polo, which recently won European Car of the Year, is available overseas with a choice of six engines, ranging from 44 to 77kw, two body styles and three model grades. The lineup also includes Polo BlueMotion, an ultra-fuel efficient 55kW diesel variant, and high-powered Polo GTI version.

At this point, it is believed Volkswagen Australia will offer the Polo in three guises: the 1.4-litre naturally aspirated 63FSI Trendline, 1.2-litre turbocharged 77TSI Comfortline and 1.6-litre turbo-diesel 66TDI Comfortline (with power output matching their names). Daytime running lights will be optional across the range.

The 2010 Volkswagen will be released in Australia on May 6th. CarAdvice will bring you a First Steer directly following the launch. Stay tuned.
