Sport-themed package priced at $1500

The Volkswagen Polo range has been bolstered with the addition of a sporty R-Line Package, now available on Comfortline variants.

Priced at $1500, the R-Line pack adds more aggressive bumpers front and rear with gloss-black accents, side skirt extensions in black grain, a diffuser-style rear treatment with chromed faux tailpipe finishers, a rear spoiler in high-gloss black, and 16-inch 'Sebring' alloys finished in Metallic Grey.

There's also privacy glass, front fog-lights with static cornering lights (previously reserved for the Launch Edition), and sports suspension under the skin.

Buyers can only specify the R-Line Package on the 85TSI Comfortline variant, which starts at $19,490 with the six-speed manual, and $21,990 for the seven-speed DSG automatic.

Unfortunately, those hanging out for a Polo with in-built navigation, Active Info Display, climate control, LED headlights, and/or a panoramic sunroof will have to wait a little longer, with Volkswagen Australia telling CarAdvice these options will start to arrive in August due to production constraints.

Also arriving in August will be the new Polo Beats (from $22,490) and GTI (from $30,990). The R-Line should help fill the gap left by the Launch Edition package, now sold out in Australia.
