Hi Msnasi... The Volkswagon Polo model is coming with a 1.2L 75bhp 3-cylinder in-line engine with 12 valves in total (4-valves per cylinder). The Volkswagen Group has been known for using 3-cylinder engines (both in petrol and diesel ). So far company has used it in the Audi A2, Volkswagen Polo, SEAT Ibiza and Skoda Fabia. The engines in these cars ranged from 1.2 litre petrols with four valves per cylinder that delivered 47 to 65 kilowatts (63 to 87 bhp), to 1.4 TDI diesels that delivered 51 to 66 kilowatts (69 to 90 PS; 68 to 89 bhp). Due to popularity and durability of these powerful engines the company has decided to use it in its recently launched Volkswagen Polo model.
