Volkswagen Polo automatic might be launched with a facelift soon

Volkswagen Polo automatic might be launched with a facelift soon

 

Carwale for the first website to tell you that Volkswagen is planning a new automatic version of the Polo hatchback – almost a month ago. Now Autocar India has divulged some more details of the new car, which might actually be launched along with mild facelift for the B-segment hatchback. 

There are reports that the Volkswagen Polo 1.6 petrol has been discounted; but from what we know, VW had planned to sell them in limited numbers, mainly because the model was expensive as it did not enjoy subsidy of small cars with the big engine. 

The Polo certainly needs to be refreshed – it has been around in the same form since inception in India in early 2010. Autocar reports that the facelift will look sportier with black inserts for the headlamp, new alloy-wheels and some other minor updates to add novelty factor. There will also be some additional features including new music system and refreshed interiors.

As for the AT variant, our sources tell us that it will be featured loaded with Climatronic AC, steering-mounted audio controls - basically most of the features from the Vento AT. The Polo AT will also get the same specs as the Vento  AT – 1.6-litre delivering 1.5bho and 153Nm of torque. The car is expected to cost around Rs 7.5 lakh – still marginally lower than the feature loaded Hyundai i20 AT. We expect VW to launch the facelift by mid-October before the festive season.
