Volkswagen hoping to cast shadow with limited run Polo Vivo Eclipse

BY CHARL BOSCH - JUNE 11, 2015

A perennial top seller with over 2 500 units being sold each month, Volkswagen has launched a special edition Eclipse variant of its budget friendly Polo Vivo.

Based on the standard 1.4-litre 63 kW model, and available as either a five-door hatch or four-door sedan, the Eclipse features mainly cosmetic enhancements over the standard car and adds silver mirrors, 16-inch Mistral alloy wheels, chrome strip below the grille and at the base of the bootlid, a slightly lowered suspension and special Eclipse badging on the bootlid and front doors.

Drawing inspiration from the sporty Polo Vivo GT, the Eclipse’ interior features a graphite-look finish on the centre console, silver insert at the base of the steering wheel and partial leather on the seats and gearlever.

A three year / 120 000 km warranty is standard, while a five year / 60 000 km service or maintenance plan is optional.
