Volkswagen Polo facelift comes in orange, launch in July 2014?
Volkswagen Polo facelift is caught testing again, this time interestingly left unattended in a fuel station with doors unlocked! Thanks to which, clear interior shots are now revealed. VW Polo facelift receives subtle cosmetic updates (except for the new orange shade) throughout the car; change in engine spec is also a possibility we are looking to find out by July 2014.
Interiors of Volkswagen Polo facelift get new matte silver motifs on centre console of dashboard, and more importantly, better looking steering wheel with piano black trims. Steering mounted controls look different from current ones, possibly to improve ergonomics. No more changes are noticeable; considering the car was spotted without disguise, this will be the end of visual change-log.
However, diesel version of facelift Polo would see a change of diesel heart. Current 1.2 litre and 1.6 litre (GT TDI) diesel mills are expected to be ditched in favour of a common 1.5 litre unit, which may be given in two states of tune; 89bhp in regular variants and 104 bhp in GT trim. The engine would also propel upcoming Volkswagen Vento facelift.
Story of petrol variants may remain unaltered – 3 cylinder 1.2 litre engine for base models and 4 cylinder 1.2 litre TSI turbo in GT trim. Former power plant produces 74 bhp at 5,400 rpm and latter pushes out 103 bhp at 5,000 rpm.
