The German carmaker is scheduled to bring one more facelift for the Polo and the Vento one month from now, loaning them both unpretentious corrective updates. Volkswagen has confirmed that a facelift for the Polo and the Vento will be launched on 4 September. The cars were spied earlier this year without camouflage while shooting for a commercial.
The new Polo will highlight a honeycomb work grille and an overhauled air dam in advance, like the constrained run GTI. The refreshed taillights and the back guard will give the Polo a crisp symbol outwardly. The Vento facelift is also expected to get similar cosmetic updates, including new side skirts that give the sedan a sportier approach. Internally, the Polo and Vento are likely to retain the same cabin albeit with certain cosmetic updates.
The Polo is relied upon to be offered with the equivalent normally suctioned 1.0-liter oil motor which is appraised at 76PS and 95Nm, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The Polo GT TSI and Vento TSI, then again, could share VW’s forthcoming 1.0-liter turbo-oil motor rather than the 1.2-liter TSI and 1.6-liter MPI (on offer with the car) motors at present on offer. Be that as it may if VW plans to proceed with BS4 motors and acquaint BS6 agreeable units closer with the due date (April 2020), at that point these vehicles could convey forward the current motors.
It is yet to be seen if the 1.5-liter diesel engines of both the Polo and the Vento will be ditched or updated to meet the BS6 emission norms. At present, the Polo has priced from Rs 5.71 lakh to Rs 9.72 lakh, while the Vento’s price ranges from Rs 8.64 lakh to Rs 14.34 lakh (ex-showroom India). Expect the cars to carry an inflated price tag over the versions currently on sale.
Upon launch, the new Polo will continue its rivalry with the Hyundai i20, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Honda Jazz, and Toyota Glanza. The Vento facelift will take on mid-size sedans like the Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Skoda Rapid, and Toyota Yaris.
