The Volkswagen Polo facelift features cosmetic updates but mechanically remains unchanged; available in a total of eight variants.


Volkswagen has just launched a facelift for its Polo premium hatchback. The Polo range now starts from Rs 5.83 lakh for the Trendline petrol and goes all the way up to Rs 9.89 lakh for the GT TDI; there are a total of eight versions of the Polo on sale now. The Polo facelift only features cosmetic changes – there’s a new GTI-inspired front bumper with a honeycomb grille, new side skirts and new taillights, to name a few. The facelift also gets a new Sunset Red colour in addition to the previously available colour options.

Mechanically, the Polo continues to use the 1.0-litre petrol, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines. The 76hp, 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol and the 90hp, 1.5-litre four-cylinder TDI diesel engines are available on all variants except the GT. The Polo GT is equipped with either the 105hp, 1.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic or the 1.5-litre diesel engine is tuned to produce 110hp.

The German carmaker has updated the equipment on offer across the entire Polo range, though it is worth noting that the prices of the hatchback have also increased by Rs 12,000-17,000. We have compiled prices and a list of all the features available on each variant below.
