The Volkswagen Group A0 platform is a series of automobile platforms shared among superminis of various marques of the Volkswagen Group.

Under Volkswagen's revised platform naming system, the "A04" platform is now known as the PQ24 platform,[1] and what may have been called the A05 platform is officially the PQ25 platform. The new nomenclature is derived as follows:

  • P indicates a passenger car platform
  • Q (quer) indicates a transverse engine
  • 2 indicates the platform size or class
  • 5 indicates the generation
