Volkswagen reveals CrossPolo facelift: New Polo continues testing in India
World’s second largest car manufacturer, Volkswagen has revealed the all-new CrossPolo in official images and details. The new CrossPolo will be offered with a choice of two diesel TDI engines and a petrol TSI engine in Germany.
Based on the Polo facelift, CrossPolo is an off-road, rugged looking variant of the Polo hatchback. Changes sees on the new CrossPolo include smoked rear light clusters, newly designed 17 inch alloys, two new color options, silver exterior accents, new design for steering wheel, new fabric on the inside, new parking brake lever, and a new gear knob.
On India front, we are yet to receive the new Polo, which was introduced in Germany late last month. Though, the good news is that Volkswagen India has already begun testing of the Polo facelift on India roads. After getting caught on test earlier this month close to VW India’s factory in Chakan near Pune, the Polo facelift was recently spotted by Cartoq.
Volkswagen India is yet to revel any details on the launch of Polo facelift in India, but considering that the test runs have already begun, one can safely expect Polo facelift launch to take place later this year.
Changes seen on the new Polo, as compared to the existing one, are new bumpers, LED headlights, chrome line in between the fog lights, more space near the number plate area, and new alloys. On the inside you will see redesigned dashboard, color screen display with infotainment and AC controls. Engine options will continue with the existing one’s, but there is chance that we might see a new gearbox in the form of AMT.
