Volkswagen has been spotted testing the facelifted model of the current Polo hatchback. While it is said that the new Polo will be based on the MQB platform, it will fill in the gap that will be created before the new Polo is out. Since the new Polo will take some more time to launch, Volkswagen is hoping that the facelifted version acts as a buffer till then. This new facelifted version is expected to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, scheduled to be held in March this year.
If one looks at the exteriors of the car, it will be very difficult to spot the changes in the car. There is slight change at the rear end, while the car gets a reworked front. Reflectors have been added to the rear bumpers of the car, while the front bumpers are now much sportier along with a new grille. Coming to the interiors of the car, it gets a reworked switch gear, updated infotainment system and a new steering wheel. The car also features a sports button, which hints towards the adjustable dampers.
The facelifted Polo, which Volkswagen will launch in Europe, is said to feature a 3-cylinder, 1.0-litre, TSI petrol engine that can produce power up to 90bhp. The powertrains of the Polo facelift is expected to be the same when it is launched in the Indian market. In a few months time, India might see the Polo facelift being unveiled here itself.
