- Volkswagen Polo facelift to debut at the Geneva Motor Show
We reported in detail when the facelifted Polo images were revealed officially. Set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show this week, Volkswagen is also currently testing the car in India, which suggests that the Volkswagen Polo facelift India launch will happen soon after its debut.
The Polo facelift has been caught on test by our friends at AutoColumn. The refreshed Polo features a plenty of minor changes to its exterior. At the frontal section, the car gets a new set of headlights and a redesigned grille. The Volkswagen Polo facelift, includes Daytime Running Lights in the headlamp units, which seem to absent on this India spec version. The headlights of the car get hexagonal treatment, and a chrome strip runs across the grille. The bumper of the car is all new, with the wider wraparound section getting a metallic highlight that runs around the bottom of the fogs. The car boasts of fewer changes around the rear, but the car does get an all-new bumper and tail-lights.
Speaking of the interiors, the German car maker has made interiors look more attractive. There are plenty of changes, but we will have to wait and watch how many of these changes trickle down into the India spec car. The new steering wheel, new center console, which uses a new color display, and the AC controls help in giving the interiors an upmarket feel. The steering wheel looks very similar to the on seen on the Volkswagen Golf.
Volkswagen will be launching the facelift before the second half of this year in India. the car maker recently introduced the 1.2 TSI and 1.6 TDi engines on the Polo. The 1.6 liter diesel is expected to be replaced by a 1.5 liter diesel motor. The 3 pot 1.2 petrol and diesel motors will continue to be offered with the new car.
