Since its launch in March 2010, the Volkswagen Polo Vivo hatchback has sold 261,285 units and has been the best-selling passenger car model in South Africa for the past ten years. As the only locally manufactured model in the competitive A0 field, Polo Vivo is still the leading brand in the entry-level incubator field despite the regular launch of new models.
The most important product features of Polo Vivo such as affordability, German processing quality, safety, space requirements and comfort are standards unmatched in this segment. The operating costs for a 3-year cycle make the Polo Vivo one of the most affordable cars you have on the South African market.
Volkswagen has added a stylish special edition to its Polo Vivo model lineup.
“Polo Vivo Mswenko, based on the Comfortline 1.4 63 kW comfort guide, is inspired by a fashion derivative that has unique stylistic details and appeals to a young, dynamic customer,” said Mike Glendinning, Sales and marketing Director for Volkswagen Group South Africa (VWSA).
Mswenko (pronounced m-swe-nkoh) is a Zulu fill expression for the slang “swag”. Swag expresses attitude and confidence. I say it that a person who is confident and stylish has some leeway. Mswenko, unique in South Africa, refers to the style, posture and general behavior of people.
On the outside, the Polo Vivo Mswenko is easily recognizable by the side stickers from Mswenko, chrome dampers, lightweight 16-inch Portago anthracite alloy wheels, black roof, privacy glass and two-tone glass cover.
On the interior, the Polo Vivo Mswenko stands out from the rest with unique standard features such as new Ocean Blue seats, anthracite trim, silver dashboard inserts, App Connect, six speakers and a leather pack (leather multifunction steering wheel, gear lever and gear knob)) .
This model is only available in the following exterior colors. Pure white, reflective silver, lime gray and coral blue. The Polo Vivo Mswenko will be available from Volkswagen dealers from October 2020
