Just a few days after the new VW Polo GT (facelift) was spied, the new VW Polo (facelift) has been spied sans camouflage. The launch of the new Polo carline could be just days or weeks away now, as it has started reaching dealerships and test mules have shed camouflage.
The new VW Polo will sport minor cosmetic changes, courtesy new front bumper that looks sharper, new honeycomb grille and Euro-style tail lamps. The alloy wheels don't appear to be new. Whether interior changes will be there is yet to be known, but safety upgrades are a given, in order to comply with the AIS-145 safety norms that come into effect on 1 July 2019. Dual-front airbags and ABS safety features are already standard. Driver and front passenger seat belt reminder and speed alert system will be introduced with the second facelift, and rear parking sensors will be made standard.
Volkswagen sells the old Polo with a 1.0-litre MPI naturally aspirated petrol engine, a 1.2-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5L TDI turbocharged diesel engine. These BS-IV engines will likely be collectively replaced by a new, BS-VI 1.0L TSI turbocharged petrol engine, which will be locally manufactured. What remains to be seen is that will the company bring the cosmetic and mechanical updates together or not.
The old VW Polo is priced from INR 5,71,500 (ex-showroom). The new model could be slightly pricier.
