Hi! I believe that is the check engine light. It means that there is some part of the engine that needs attention. It can range from routine maintenance (a dirty filter for instance) to a serious problem. You will have to take it to a dealer for them to diagnose the specific error using their diagnostic computer.
I'm not sure about the Polo but for several VW models the Check Engine Light goes on when the gas cap isn't on tight (there is a sensor that monitors tank pressure). You may want to check that first.
Hope this helps.

My Polo had a similar problem and the brake light switch at the brake pedal was replaced. Then the computer was reset and the EPC light issue was resolved. It has something to do with the engine management, when sensing the light switsh being activated, retarding the power of the engine.

This warning light should indicate that there is a rear light failure. Running lights, brake lights, signal lights, reverse lights. You should check all the bulbs to see if any are burnt out.

Check your brake lights.if the bulbs blow this can induce a brake light switch fault,also the switch itself is a very common problem.this will put your EPC light on
