VW Polo R May Get All-Wheel Drive
Since the Polo R WRC was launched so early in the three-year Volkswagen WRC schedule, the carmaker could be planning additional versions of the car to keep the public's interest at a high level.
Thus, we could see the Polo R receive four-wheel drive in the future. The Polo is underpinned by the same PQ25 platform as the Audi A1. The latter already has a four-wheel drive incarnation, the A1 quattro, so an AWD Polo R would certainly be possible from the technical point of view.
“There could be some customer interest, so I think four-wheel drive could be great for some countries. There are no plans [for now], but I could imagine it,” Head of VW R&D, Ulrich Hackenberg, said.
