Volkswagen Polo and Vento facelift spotted testing in India

Volkswagen Polo and Vento facelift spotted testing in India

-Both the Polo and Vento are likely to get a BS-VI compliant TSI petrol motor.

-Cosmetic changes would be limited to redesigned bumpers and head-and-tail-light signatures.

-Might get an upgraded features list as well.

-Expected to go on sale in over the next few months.

A new set of spied images of the Volkswagen Polo and Vento has surfaced online. The duo is likely to get mild cosmetic changes in order to soldier on for a few more years until a replacement arrives. However, under the skin, they will get a new BS-VI compliant petrol motor.

The new motor in question here is a 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI engine which both the Vento and Polo will receive with the update. It already debuted in the Ameo last year. This new motor is locally manufactured and will replace the older 1.6-litre motor in the Vento. The same BS-VI motor is expected to make its way under the hood of the Skoda Rapid as a part of its update. 

The 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine produces 75bhp at 6,200rpm and 95Nm of torque between 3,000-4,300rpm. The transmission options would include a five-speed manual and seven-speed DSG. The oil burner will most probably remain unchanged until the mandatory BS-VI norms kick in by March next year.

Appearance wise, the updated Polo is expected to get a GTI-like front bumper design with a dual tone bumper at the rear. Even the grille is likely to be similar to the GTI but the headlight won’t be borrowed from the two-door hatch. The LED signature on tail lights will be new, with a single exhaust tip. The same design characteristics would then be adopted by the Ameo when the compact sedan receives an update. 

This would be the second facelift for the sedan since its introduction in India eight years ago. Volkswagen is likely to introduce the facelifted Vento and Polo in the country by the second half of this year, perhaps during the Indian festive season. More details will be revealed over the next few months, so keep watching this space for more.
