The self-tolerant, who fouls the exhaust standard Euro 5, is intended to form the basis for all future four-cylinder diesel engines from Volkswagen thanks to its modular design. There are currently three performance levels: During the edition with 75 hp remains reserved for the polo, the variants with 90 and 105 hp will be found both in Polo and in the Gulf. The sale of the new engines should start in 2009.
