Volkswagen has launched the facelifted Polo starting at Rs. 4.99 lakh. The new VW Polo sees cosmetic updates and the big news is that it gets an all-new 1.5-litre diesel motor.

Stylistically, the facelifted VW Polo gets a new face. The front bumper has a new design and a thick chrome strip on the air-dam. The grille uses less chrome and there's now a smart single strip instead of three. There are new-design alloys and the headlights and tail-lights get refreshed styling as well, but LED day-time running lights are missing on the updated car. The rear bumper has also been redesigned. The Polo facelift also gets a striking new orange paint shade.
On the inside, the facelifted Polo gets a brand new three-spoke steering wheel with some piano-black garnishing and buttons laid out on both sides. It has dual front airbags. The dashboard gets a two-tone option and the centre console gets silver finishing in contrast to the black.
Mechanically, the new VW Polo retains the 1.2-litre and 1.2-litre TSI petrol units. Importantly, the facelifted VW Polo gets an all-new 1.5-litre diesel motor that is available in two states of tune — 89bhp and 104bhp. Transmission duties are handled by a five-speed manual gearbox.
Polo 1.2 petrol: Rs. 4.99 lakh to Rs 6.07 lakh
Polo 1.5 TDI : Rs. 6.27 lakh to Rs 7.37 lakh
Cross Polo: Rs. 7.90 lakh
Polo GT TDI: Rs. 7.99 lakh
Polo GT TSI: Rs. 7.99 lakh
