Virtual Car has published an exclusive set of design sketches that document the design development process of the new Volkswagen Polo, which will debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show in the 3-door version.


Below we report a selection of the image gallery published by Virtual Car, along with Walter de Silva‘s original comments on the design of the new model, first unveiled on last May.

"Certain distinctive design elements", says de Silva, "have evolved as typical of the brand. Mastery of the architecture and a balance of proportions have formed the foundation, the emphasis on horizontal lines has evolved into a unifying characteristic across models, and a literal love for details has become an essential means of expression."

"The Polo," underscores de Silva, "displays self-assured proportions. As soon as you see the car, you are struck by its dynamic looks, while the design is clean and the overall appearance very purposeful.

"Reduced radii, tight seams and extremely sharp panel edges in its side profile, engine hood and tailgate underscore the car’s logical design concept. Above all, the gain in width leads to a very full, powerful image from every perspective."
