The facelift for the sixth-generation Volkswagen Polo has been introduced in foreign markets, and we have to admit it looks pretty stylish, thanks to some ID.3 styling features. The new Volkswagen Polo now has a new dual-beam headlight with an LED DRL strip running across the grille, as seen in the leaked shot. The bumper has also been updated, giving it a more rugged appearance, as well as a new specification for the alloy wheels. While the front and profile have remained relatively unchanged, the rear has been significantly updated, beginning with new split-LED taillights and more pronounced VW and Polo badging.
When it comes to the cabin, the structural modifications are minor, but there are significant updates in the tech department. The Golf gets a new flat-bottom steering wheel, a bigger 9.2-inch infotainment system that’s available while the 6.5-inch unit is standard, an 8.0-inch instrument panel, and touch-based climate control. The shifter mode – P-R-N-D-S – is also etched on the gear lever. More driver assistance technologies, advanced connected technology, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, wireless charging, keyless entry, push-button ignition, and more will be available on the hatchback. Travel Assist, a level two autonomous driving feature, is available as an option on the new Polo. This feature combines adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance to allow for partially autonomous driving up to 210 kilometres per hour. Traditional lane-keeping technology, on the other hand, is a common feature.
Volkswagen continues to sell the same engines, including a 1.0-liter three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine and a TSI turbo-petrol engine. In the foreign market, power outputs range from 78 to 108 bhp, with manual or dual-clutch automatic transmission options depending on engine and variant. However, this is not the same model that is available in our country, and there has been no news from the firm on when the new model will be available in India.
