Volkswagen Australia has announced details for the Polo 85TSI Style, which serves as the new top-spec variant of the core range – discounting the GTI hot hatch, naturally.

Priced from $24,990 before on-road costs, the Polo Style is DSG only, and brings a range of equipment and features that were previously optional or not available on the local range.

Key highlights include the Active Info digital instrument binnacle as standard, along with an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless phone charging, a Beats premium audio system, dual-zone climate control, 'Sports Comfort' front seats, front and rear carpet mats, along with privacy glass.

There's also Deep Iron metallic cabin trim inserts, black headliner, front seat height and lumbar adjustment, and darkened LED tail-lights.

Carryover specification from the 85TSI Comfortline grade includes automatic headlights and wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, leather steering wheel, four USB ports, rear-view camera, cruise control, heated power mirrors, and driver fatigue monitoring.

Power comes from the same 85kW/200Nm 1.0-litre turbocharged three-pot petrol as the 85TSI Comfortline, too, mated as standard to a seven-speed DSG.

As with the wider range, the Polo Style is available with the optional Driver Assistance pack ($1500), which bolsters the active safety suite with adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automated park assist, power folding side mirrors, and a proactive occupant protection system. Premium paint is also $600 extra.
