Volkswagen Polo Face Lift: It Is Coming In July, With Better Features

With better exteriors, advanced interiors, additional features, and an all-new engine, the Volkswagen Polo Facelift looks promising. With a launch expected in India in July 2014, the car is already doing well in many parts of Europe.

Volkswagen, the German automobile manufacturer launched the facelift of one of its most popular models – the Volkswagen Polo, at the Geneva Motor show in March this year.

The Polo hatchback has gone through several aesthetic, as well as mechanical changes. With a launch scheduled in India next month, the tweaked model has already hit the European Auto Market and is getting good reviews.

Volkswagen has made a smart move by launching this face-lift. The car is already popular in India and we expect these changes to only increase its fan following.

Design, Built & Exteriors:

The overall design of the car remains unchanged; however, there are significant changes in the Volkswagen Polo Facelift exteriors, including all-new bumper, fog lamps, and grille.

An increase in height of this new model makes it even more spacious. We expect some of the models to get bigger wheels too. The high-end models would get optional LED headlights and LED tail lamps.


The Volkswagen Polo Facelift interiors will also undergo considerable changes. With a new black colored three-spoke steering wheel, the car would flaunt steering mounted controls, a rear camera, centre console with matte silver surrounding, restructured instrument cluster, updated infotainment system, and more.

For the safety pursuit of its passengers, the car would come with an array of safety features, including city emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and post collision braking system.

Engine & Performance:

The most significant change among all the Volkswagen Polo Facelift features is its engine. The model would now come with a new 1.5 litre, four-cylinder diesel engine mustering 105 PS power and 250Nm of peak torque.

Equipped with ADSG transmission, this new diesel engine would attract lesser excise duty, which would certainly lower the cost of the diesel version of the car. However, we need to see if the ace car manufacturer would completely do away with the current 1.2 litre diesel engine or would offer it also with the 1.5 litre one.

The petrol variants of the car remain unchanged with seven-speed DSG transmission and 1.2 litre TSI mill.


We expect the automobile giant to fix the Volkswagen Polo Facelift price between 5 Lakhs to 9 Lakhs.

There are several B+ segment cars in the Indian Auto Market including the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Tata Indica Vista, Skoda Fabia, Fiat Punto, Hyundai i20, and more. We now look forward to the response the new member of this segment – the Volkswagen Polo Facelift would get.
