The twin clutch automatic gearbox for the new 2018 Polo known as the DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) is a reliable and proven unit across the VW range. Smooth and intuitive gear changes are combined with impressive performance and economy figures which compare well to manual models. Typically, Polo automatics add around £1,500 onto the price of a corresponding 5-speed manual version. However the automatics are always in demand as second hand acquisitions and will hold their value well. At the moment only the 1.0 TSI engine (in either 95 or 115 bhp power level) and the GTI models have the optional auto, as the lower horsepower 1.0 petrol isnt powerful enough, and the diesel is manual only. The 1.0 TSI models get the 7 speed DSG and the GTI gets a 6 speed rated to handle the extra power. List price for the 2018 Polo automatic starts at just over £17k for the 1.0 TSI SE. This mid range trim includes alloy wheels, leather multi-function steering wheel, 8" colour multimedia touchscreen and air conditioning.
