Last month, the new VW Polo GT (facelift) and the new VW Vento (facelift) were spied completely undisguised. Now, fresh spy shots showing their camouflaged test mules on the roads have surfaced online.
As visible from the pictures, the new VW Polo sports quite a few cosmetic changes. It now comes with a sharper looking front bumper, new honeycomb grille which replaces the twin chrome slat grille, tweaked tail lamps which are likely to be part LED units. The new VW Vento appears to have the same front bumper inspired by that of the VW Polo GTI, new honeycomb mesh pattern grille, a cutout for the VW logo at the bonnet and the VW Vento Cup Edition's alloy wheels. At the rear, the new model will include a faux diffuser for a sportier styling.
The VW Polo has been on sale with a 1.0-litre MPI naturally aspirated petrol engine, a 1.2-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre TDI turbocharged diesel engine. The VW Vento is available with a 1.6L MPI naturally aspirated petrol engine, a 1.2L TSI turbocharged petrol and a 1.5L turbocharged diesel engine. These BS-IV units will be replaced by a cleaner, BS-VI 1.0L TSI turbocharged petrol engine. This engine will be manufactured locally. What remains to be seen is if this will happen along with the cosmetic refresh.
The VW Polo is priced from INR 5.71 lakh* and the Vento is priced from INR 8.64 lakh*. The second facelift will likely make these cars costlier.
