Highlights

November 20, 2014: Volkswagen India has started exporting the 1.6-liter Polo Highline petrol to the North American country - Mexico. Polo joins its twin sibling Vento which was exported there since last year. Moreover, earlier this year in July, Volkswagen India has launched the 2014 Polo facelift in India with a starting price of Rs 4.99 lakh. Following the showcasing at the Geneva Motor Show, the manufacturer has finally refreshed its premium hatch after its Indian debut about five years back. The car comes with an engine option of 1.2 MPi in petrol model and 1.5 TDI in diesel model. The automaker will launch the GT variants at the end of this month. Volkswagen Polo now sports Airbags as a standard feature while the ABS is available in all the models except the base variant.

Overview

One of the most highly anticipated hatchback, Volkswagen Polo facelift has finally arrived in the automobile market. This latest model comes in three trim levels, which are Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. It comes with both petrol and diesel engine options for the buyers to choose from. The petrol versions are equipped with the same 1.2-litre engine that can churn out a peak power of 74bhp in combination with a maximum torque of 110Nm. While the diesel versions are now equipped with a new 1.5-litre mill that belts out a superior power of 88.8bhp and generates 230Nm of mammoth torque. These are the main changes given to the specifications of 2014 Polo series, whereas its features have been kept as it is. In terms of exteriors, this latest model received major updates all over with a brand new radiator grille, a set of stylish alloy wheels along with a newly designed bumper and a redesigned headlight cluster. The taillight cluster and the rear bumper too have been revamped that gives it a refreshing new look. The company also made changes to the interiors by refurbishing the dashboard, central console and seats. The design of the instrument panel is same as the outgoing trim, but the information display between tachometer and speedometer gets a new color scheme and a few more functions as well.

The proficient power steering wheel now gets a flat-bottomed design, which further gives an asserting look to the cabin. This vehicle has been equipped with all the standard comfort features like a proficient air conditioning system with heater, speed sensitive electric power steering, all four power windows and central locking system. As far as safety aspects are concerned, this hatchback is built on 100 percent galvanized steel that includes door impact crossbars and crumple zones. This helps to divert the impact or kinetic energy caused in case of an accident and thereby, it protects the passengers inside. Volkswagen India has placed this sub 4-meter vehicle in the premium hatchback segment, where it will lock horns with the likes of Maruti Swift, Ritz, Tata Bolt, Toyota Etios Liva and Chevrolet Sail UVA. At present, it is introduced with a standard warrant of 2-years (unlimited kilometers) along with 3-years warranty for paintwork. Customers can further extend the warranty period to 1 or 2-years at an extra cost paid to the authorized dealer locally. On the other hand, its fully galvanized body is available with an anti-corrosion perforation warranty for 12-years, which is quite impressive.

Engine and Performance

Ed's Take: The performance of the Polo is good and especially if you consider the GT variants. The petrol GT has the convenience of an automatic as well, with seven-speed transmission. The normal diesel too is good enough.

As said above, this 2014 Volkswagen Polo is blessed with two engine options for the buyers to choose from. The petrol version is equipped with a natural aspirated 1.2-litre engine that has a displacement capacity of 1198cc .
