Polo 4 (9N1).

Polo 4 9N1 (2001 – 2005): An entire page of highlights, models & accessories. The 4th Generation of our versatile cult model has been capturing the imagination of young and old since 2001 – and in its 8 years of construction, it's spawned a number of variations. On this page, we'll present the 9N1 (and 9N2) – built up until 2005. Find your particular Polo model type, discover your car all over again – as well as the matching services, parts and a selection of individual accessories, too.

8 x Polo 4. The 9N, built up to 2005, is extremely versatile – and every model from our range has its own distinctive characteristics. Which is your Polo?

Polo Fun

Next-level driving pleasure: in this 5-door car with greater ground clearance and off-road look on 17" alloy wheels.

Polo 4 GT

Fancy something a little more sporty? Sure thing: check out the lowered special edition Polo GT with central locking system and electric windows.

Polo Special

What makes this Polo special is e.g. its 5 doors, 16" alloy wheels and its Volkswagen Individual Radio.

Polo 4 Trendline

Small but powerful: elongated vehicle body, more legroom, bigger luggage compartment. The Polo IV has grown - a miracle of space with real character.

Polo 4 Comfortline

Thrilling on the outside, calm on the inside - you can have both: with the Polo Comfortline. Take a seat and enjoy the ride.

Polo 4 Highline

High-quality materials and precision processing will captivate in the Highline equipment package.

Polo Cricket

This special edition model scores highly with its sophisticated equipment, including a rain sensor and cruise control system.

Polo 4 Saloon

The Polo 4 Saloon is an extra special model: a notchback rather than a hatchback with more storage space.

Highlights. The little car has grown up: at the beginning of the new millennium, the 9N1 set new standards with technical innovations, a striking design and comfortable dimensions. It's powerful engine is the 1.9 L TDI engine with 96 kW. Here you'll find a selection of other highlights:


A striking radiator grille and 4 round headlamps give the Polo its unmistakable look. Precisely placed arcs, carefully drawn out curves and clear lines guarantee a successful performance. Consciously free from eye-catching but short-lived trends - after all, honest design is timeless design.


Grown up in the truest sense of the word: the 9N1 has grown by over 15 cm in length. The wheelbase is over 5cm larger - giving you more legroom inside. With the rear bench folded down, the luggage compartment has a capacity of 1030 L - a vehicle interior that is both functionally clever and super comfortable.


Your Polo protects its occupants: ABS, power steering, and front and side airbags, plus belt tensioners and belt force limiters are all standard equipment. The optional electronic stabilisation programme, brake assist system and curtain airbags at the front provide additional protection.

Polo Fun.

This model enjoys huge popularity. Understandably so: an off-road look with front and rear apron, roof railing, standard fog lights and 17" alloy wheels are just a couple of its special features. Jump in and enjoy - the Polo Fun.

Polo 4 Saloon.

This model is different to a notchback, with a vehicle body that has been elongated by 28cm. This visual difference is reflected in the vehicle interior by a luggage compartment that is approximately 150L larger than in the hatchback versions. The notchback version of the Polo has thus earned its own type name: 9N2. By the way, you're looking at a real Brazilian here: built in South America, it now feels just as at home in Europe.
