March 20, 2017: Next-gen Volkswagen Polo has been spied completely undesguised in South Africa. Volkswagen is expected to unveil the all-new Polo at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, which will open its gates on September 14, 2017. The new-gen Polo is built on Volkswagen's smallest and flexible MQB platform, which will make it lighter and more commodious than the current-model. Volkswagen is likely to launch the new Polo in the European market first, followed closely by the American and Asian markets. We expect it to launch in India in the later half of 2018.
The current-gen Polo is offered in various trims and differently tuned engines. While the standard, ALL STAR and Cross Polo variants can be had with either a 1.2-litre petrol engine (75PS/110Nm) or a 1.5-litre diesel engine (90PS/230Nm), the Polo GT TSI and GT TDI are available with the same but more powerful 1.2-litre petrol (105PS/175Nm) and 1.5-litre diesel (110PS/250Nm) engines respectively.
Looks great and styling is brilliant. Minimum lines/curves and maximum flat surfaces give it a sophisticated and plush look which might not appeal to everyone but lack of glitter does make it a better design. Styling too is good and the car would not loose its looks for atleast next 4-5 years. Word of advise - Keep it simple, more costumization degrades the appeal of car.
Comfort is good especially with features like seat height and steering column adjustment. But, there is a little lack of com read more 81
The German car maker has launched its much-anticipated vehicle, the Volkswagen Polo GT TDI recently at a very attractive price range.

The price tag, which the company has given this is Rs. 8.08 lakh (Ex-showroom, New Delhi), which is quite affordable and perf read more 25

Volkswagen may be one of the largest carmakers in the world, but here in India, the company's dominance is overshadowed by a slew of cheaper and more preferred domestic brands. However, the Polo has proven to be the brand’s saviour and continues to be the real number driver for VW. The premium hatchback has become a favourite with buyers who want a Euro-car at a reasonable price, with powertrains to please the family man and the enthusiast. Let’s explore what’s hot and what’s not with the Volkswagen Polo.
Things We Like in Polo
Clean, no-frills design looks classy and understated.
Build quality inside out is best-in-class. Doors close with a thunk, no trace of scratchy plastics in the interior.
Loaded with features such as automatic AC, touchscreen infotainment, auto-dimming mirror etc.
Available with a variety of engine-transmission options.
Things We Don't Like in Polo
Rear seat space is nothing to write home about. High-transmission tunnel effectively makes it a four-seater.
Volkswagen’s after-sales service doesn’t have the reach of established rivals such as Maruti / Hyundai.
Stand Out Features
Features such as rain-sensing wipers, cruise control are unique to the Polo in its class.
Dual-airbags as standard.
The Volkswagen Polo is the brand’s bread and butter model. It offers great build quality, impeccable fit and finish levels, premium interiors and a clean design.
"The Polo is a great buy if you won’t be using the rear seats often, and need nothing but a well-built car to tackle the daily grind."
It isn’t as spacious as its contemporaries, and could’ve been priced a tad aggressively as well. The Polo is a great buy if you won’t be using the rear seats often, and need nothing but a well-built car to tackle the daily grind.
Volkswagen came up with a mid-life update for its Polo last year. While the cosmetic changes were very minute and subtle, the alterations under the bonnet made it to the news for all the right reasons. The three-cylinder not-so-refined diesel engine was now replaced with an all-new mill having an extra cylind...
