The Aerodynamics Development of the New Volkswagen Polo
The Polo is entering its 7th generation. The car is based on a new architecture concept using a new modular design. Both the car body and the platform are newly designed. The platform will be used by several brands of the Volkswagen group for a variety of vehicles.
The Polo has been designed to meet demanding emission requirements. One of the key contributors to achieving the requirements is improved aerodynamics in spite of a significant growth of vehicle frontal area. These improvements were applied to the entire fleet of vehicles, thus ensuring that future legislative targets will be met.
