Three of the most popular Volkswagen models in the international market are the Polo, Fox, and Golf. Introduced in 1975 and still being produced, the Polo is classified as a super-mini car that is related to other Volkswagen Group-made vehicles including the Skoda Fabia and the Seat Ibiza. There has been five generations during its 41-years of production and it has been offered in three styles –- hatchback, sedan, and station wagon.

Three different engines were used to power the first-generation models from 1975 through 1981 and eight engines were available for the second-generation models from 1981 through 1994. The level of compression varied on each size engine to obtain different power outputs ranging from 33 PS to 60 PS.

The third-generation of the Polo was manufactured from 1994 through 2003. The styles included a 5-door hatchback, a 3-door hatchback, a 4-door sedan and a 5-door station wagon. These models were related to the Seat Ibiza Mk2, Seat Cordoba Mk1 and Seat Inca. Ten engines were offered to power these models including seven straight-4 gasoline, two straight-4 16-valve gasoline engines, and one straight-4 diesel. Sizes ranged from 999 cc to 1,272 cc, and 1.4-liter to 1.6-liter with the diesel being 1.9-liter.

The fourth-generation Polo included 5-door and 3-door hatchbacks and a 4-door sedan. These models were related to the Seat Ibiza Mk3, Seat Cordoba Mk2, Skoda Fabia Mk1, the Skoda Fabia Mk2, and the Volkswagen Fox. Eleven engines were available to power the car including a straight-3 6-valve, straight-3 12 valve, three straight-4 16 valve, one straight-3 TDI, two straight-4 TDI, straight-4 SDI and two straight-4 8-valve gasoline engines. Sizes varied from 1.2-liter to 2.0-liter. One of the straight-4 16-valve engines included fuel stratified injection and two straight-4 8-valve engines featured a cast-iron block and very short manual gearbox.

A facelift was performed on the fourth-generation models from 2006 to 2008 or to 2014 in Brazil during which six more engines were added to provide the power. They included a straight-4 16-valve, two straight-4 8-valve, a turbocharged straight-4 20V, a straight-3 and straight-4 gasoline engines.

The fifth generation Polo includes the current year’s model. The car comes in three styles –- 5-door and 3-door hatchback and 4-door sedan. This Polo is related to the Seat Ibiza Mk4 and Skoda Fabia Mk3. Eight different engines power the car including a straight-3 12 valves, turbocharged straight-4 8 valves, a straight-4 16 valves, twincharger straight-4 16 valves, a turbocharged straight-3 12-valve diesel and a turbocharged straight 4 16-valve diesel.

Volkswagen Brazil manufactures and designs the Fox, a city car sold in Latin America since 2003, Europe from 2005 to 2011 and the United States from 1987 through 1993. It is available in three styles –- a 3-door and 5-door hatchback and a 5-door station wagon, which is also called the Volkswagen Suran. Six engines have been used to power the car including a 1.2-liter I3, 1.4-liter I4, 1.6-liter I4 gasoline and gasoline/ethanol, 1.0-liter I-4 gasoline/ethanol engine and a 1.4-liter I3 diesel.

The Suran is sold in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay and is powered by a 1.6-liter engine that generates power output levels ranging between 98 PS and 103 PS (102 bhp) depending on the type of fuel used, either gasoline or a blend of gas and ethanol. The Volkswagen Golf is classified as a small family car manufactured in Germany since 1974. It comes in five styles – 5-door and 3-door hatchback, 5-door wagon, 2-door convertible, and 5-door MPV.

The sixth generation model was manufactured from 2008 to 2014 and is related to the Seat Leon Mk2, Seat Toledo Mk3 and the Seat Altea. It is powered by a 2.5-liter I-5 engine that delivers 170-horsepower with 177 lb-ft  (240 N-m) of torque, a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 clean diesel engine that delivers 140-horsepower with 236 lb-ft (320 N-m) of torque. The engines are mated to a DSG dual-clutch 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.

The K&N 33-2830 replacement air filter is specifically designed to fit many models of the Volkswagen Polo, Fox, Suran, and Golf. This filter also fits many other vehicles like some Skoda Roomster and Rapid models and some SEAT Toledo and Ibiza models. The filter simply drops into the existing factory air box for a lifetime of performance and outstanding engine protection.

The air filter features multiple layers of cotton gauze that has been treated with a special grade of filter oil that makes the cotton strands so tacky they catch and hold on to the dirt particles to keep them from reaching and possibly damaging your engine. The construction allows the filter to be used for 50,000 miles before cleaning is necessary, depending on driving conditions.

K&N also offers air filter cleaning kits that are specially formulated to clean the K&N filter. This allows you to use the filter over and over again and may be the last filter you will ever have to buy for your car. K&N is so sure of the quality of the filter, it backs it with a Million Mile Limited Warranty®.
