The next generation Polo from the German automaker, Volkswagen is likely to be powered by the 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine that powers the VW Up!. The model will be an entry-level variant of the Polo line-up and will sit alongside a variety of petrol and diesel four-cylinders.
The engine that currently powers the entry-level hatchback has an output ranging from 60PS to 91PS. Apart from the new engine addition; the facelift for the Polo is minimal in terms of styling. The car is expected to get a restyled front bumper, a smaller antenna and revised taillights. A more evident addition is the introduction of daytime LEDs on the front bumper to keep up with the competition. Inside the basic console arrangement is expected to stay the same apart from some minor updates to seats. A new dashboard and an updated infotainment system are on the charts for this facelift along with a new driver assistance system.
We are not too sure whether the facelifted version will come to India, but we are certainly interested in tiny efficient engine, especially after experiencing the 1.2 TSI and 1.4 TSI. Volkswagen will launch the Up! in India early next year and the new engine will debut with the small car before finding a place under the hood of its elder sibling.
