VW Polo never had price as its advantage. The car has always been one of the most expensive hatchbacks in the country to own. Now to not have features such as steering mounted audio controls, and Buletooth connectivity for the audio system in one of the most expensive cars on sale may not have gone down too well with the existing as well as prospective customers.
Seems like VW India is heeding the concern and is planning to come out with an upgraded version of the Polo with more features. One such car with additional features has been spied by our friends at Motorbeam. The top of the line Highline version of the car will come equipped with steering-mounted audio controls, Bluetooth connectivity and an answer button.
Apart from this, VW is planning to provide the Polo a mid-life facelift internationally. Germany based AutoBild magazine, which has an Indian version too, published by the Living Media Group, has come out with some renderings for the facelifted version of the car. The face lifted version of the compact is expected to hit the roads internationally sometime in 2013.
In its face lifted version, the Polo will get some visual upgrades without altering the basic proportions of the car. The headlights may also get a set of daytime running LEDs. There will be more features taken from the bigger and more advanced cars from the VW stable.
