Notable differences from the standard VW Polo hatchback include Volkswagen Motorsport decals on exterior, contrasting appliqué on outside rear view mirror caps, WRC-inspired rear spoiler, Ecotint window film, and Blaupunkt Philadelphia 835 infotainment system with 7-inch touchscreen head unit and navigation facility and connectivity features.
