Almost.  Actually, the Audi 50 was introduced first, in 1974, and the 
ur-Polo, launched the following year, was really a rebadged Audi 50.   
The 50 was discontinued in 1978.

The 50 was designed, developed and styled in Ingolstadt ... all of this 
happening in parallel with VW's development of the Golf and Scirocco 
(both of which were Giugiaro-styled).
