Anjan Ravi,

I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Mexico is the single largest export market for VW India. 

VW India’s Pune plant has started exports of the Polo hatchback to Mexico, the company said in a statement. The plant already exports the Vento to Mexico, where it is sold as the Polo Sedan.

The Polo for Mexico does without the double barrel headlight cluster, and the chrome lined foglight enclosures.

For the Mexican market, the Polo is sold with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol engine capable of 105 hp, matched to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. It is to be noted that the Polo 1.6 was sold in India once upon a time, but was discontinued owing to lack of demand.

Only one trim level of the Polo is offered in Mexico. It comes packed with features like 15-inch alloy wheels, ABS, dual front airbags, electrically adjustable wing mirrors, foglights and an integrated music system capable of playing FM/CD/MP3/AUX-in/Bluetooth.

Visually, there are minor differences in the Mexican Polo compared to the Indian model. The headlights seem to be from the pre-facelifted Polo and do without the dual-barrel arrangement, and the foglight enclosures don’t get the chrome outlining. Also, the alloy wheels are from the pre-facelifted Polo.

The manual variant is priced at 189,700 Pesos (INR 8.58 lakhs) while the automatic retails for an Indian equivalent of INR 9.42 lakhs.
