The refreshed Polo also gets an updated front fascia inspired by the VW Golf Sportsvan. VW says that LED headlights, an optional first-in-segment feature, will be listed on the Polo’s accessories sheet.

The diesel variants of the Polo are now powered by a new three-cylinder 1.4-liter motor which is available in two power states of 75 PS and 90 PS. The 1.2-liter three-cylinder and 1.6-liter four-cylinder diesel engines are discontinued, says VW. The petrol range includes two 1.0-liter MPI engines, two 1.2-liter TSI engines and a 1.4-liter TSI engine with cylinder deactivation technology.

The Polo has been successful ever since its launch back in 1975 and close to 686,000 units of the hatchback were sold in 2013. Since production began in 1975, Volkswagen has sold 14 million Polos.

    Hello Sir, when the refreshed VW Vento is expected to be launched in India? Will the 1.6 litre Diesel engine will be replaced by a smaller engine OR the same engine will be continued in refreshed Vento in India?
