Now although there is still time before the 2017 Volkswagen Polo gets a green light for production, an international website has released some exclusive images, showing how the popular hatchback could look like.
According to the reports, the 2017 Polo will be the first vehicle to make use of the smallest version of VW’s MQB platform. Called A0, this new platform has been developed to work around much simpler setups compared to the MQB which uses complicated large chassis bits to underpin a wide range of cars belonging to different body styles.
The 2017 Polo is also rumoured to be significantly bigger inside with a wheelbase that is longer by as much as 90mm compared to the current car. The longer wheelbase will certainly add to the rear-seat space and comfort – something that the current-gen Polo lacks.
Expectedly, the 2017 Polo range will rely heavily on small turbocharged TSI and TDI engines. The range will include a variety of units ranging from 75bhp 1-litre to 1.5-litre 160bhp engines.
Due for sale by the end of 2017, the new Polo will rival the likes of the Suzuki Swift and the Honda Jazz in European markets.
