With 261 285 units sold since its market introduction in 2010, the Volkswagen Polo Vivo hatch has been the best-selling passenger car model in South Africa for the past decade and has remained a dominant player in the entry-level hatch segment despite an onslaught of new models.


Polo Vivo’s key attributes such as affordability, German build quality, safety, space and comfort have set an unparalleled benchmark in the segment. The cost of ownership over a three-year cycle makes Polo Vivo one of the most affordable cars to own in the South African market. Now Volkswagen has updated the Polo Vivo model range with a stylish special edition model.


The Polo Vivo Mswenko, which is based on the 1.4 63kW Comfortline manual model is a fashion inspired derivative featuring unique styling details that will appeal to customers that are dynamic and young at heart.


Mswenko is the isiZulu expression for the slang word “swag”. Swag is an expression of attitude and confidence. A self-confident and stylish person is said to have swag. Mswenko, which is unique to South Africa, refers to a person’s style, attitude and general demeanour.


What’s the difference?

From the outside the Polo Vivo Mswenko is easily recognisable by Mswenko side decals, a chrome tip exhaust, 16-inch Portago alloy wheels in Anthracite, a black painted roof, privacy glass and mirror covers in two colour variants.


Inside the Mswenko boasts unique standard features such as Ocean Blue seats, and anthracite headliner, silver dashboard inserts, App Connect, six speakers and a leather package that includes a leather multi-function steering wheel, gearshift lever and gear knob.


This special edition model will only be available in the following exterior colours; Pure White, Reflex Silver, Limestone Grey and Reef Blue
