After a series of leaks, the Volkswagen Polo facelift has been officially unveiled in standard and R-Line guise. The update brings a slightly revised design and more technology and safety features to the small hatch.
As detailed in our previous story, the Volkswagen Polo facelift has been handed new updated design cues to the front and rear with the most notable changes being the head- and taillamp clusters. These LED headlamps will be standard across the range while the new IQ Light LEDs will be available optionally.
Another option made available for the Volkswagen Polo facelift is the Travel Assist option which will feature adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist. The cabin has also been fitted with its latest 6,5-inch touchscreen infotainment system as standard. The 8,0-inch digital instrument cluster has been included into the basic equipment offering as well. Additional standard features include 15-inch alloy wheels, a centre armrest, additional USB-C port, electric windows all around, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors and leather trims for the steering wheel and gear shifter.
The premium R-Line package for the Volkswagen Polo facelift gains extra kit as well. Here you’ll find redesigned front- and rear bumpers with the front boasting a high-gloss black cross and longitudinal bars on the air intakes. On this trim, the IQ.Light LED matrix headlamps and LED foglamps are fitted as standard. The rear bumper houses a high-gloss black diffuser with chrome-look integrated exhaust panels. The dynamic look is rounded off with a set of 16-inch Valencia alloy wheels.
Engine options remain the same with the turbocharged 1,0-litre three-cylinder offered in a 70 kW and 85 kW state-of-tune with a five-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The local introduction for the Volkswagen Polo facelift is yet to be confirmed.
