VW Polo facelift coming in September

Volkswagen has revealed the images of the facelift version of the Polo and this will make its way into India as well by September. The Polo model year 2014 has a upgrade with a redesigned bumper and headlamps with LED running lamps. The new Polo for India will also get a new engine too. This will be the 1.5-litre diesel engine and it will replace the current GT TDI with the 1.6-litre diesel engine.

The new 1.5-litre engine will come mated to a five-speed manual transmission and also an option of self-shifting dual-clutch seven-speed transmission. This engine will produce 89bhp of power and this downsize will help Volkswagen to reduce the duty on the engines. The Volkswagen Polo 1.2-litre diesel is likely to be discontinued as well. This will help them gain a larger market share if they manage to reduce the prices.

The interiors of the Polo will also receive a major upgrade, with a new music system in place. The Polo has been a great handler with a well-built body and now it will boast a powerful engine too. The Volkswagen Polo and even the Vento will be seen very soon. The Vento will retain the same power with the 1.5-litre diesel engine, also expect the Vento to come with a seven-speed DSG box too.
