Next gen VW Polo envisioned via new renderings

The next gen VW Polo is expected to be ready by 2017.

The current version of the VW Polo has been in existence since 2008 and it’s inching towards the end of its product lifecycle. Thanks to its understated yet sporty styling, it has aged quite gracefully but we are already looking forward to the next iteration.

Here is a set of speculative renderings of the next gen VW Polo created by the design specialist Theophilus Chin. The renderings derive styling cues from the current Golf Mk7 and the GTE Concept. The overall design retains the current car’s sophisticated character but the lines and surfaces are cleaner and more accentuated.

The new model would be underpinned by MQB platform.

An LED infused headlamp, trademark chrome horizontal slats for the grille, sharp chin, chrome outlined day light opening, large multispoke alloy wheels and angular taillights make for an attractive looking compact hatchback. Expect the revamped interior too adopt the brand’s latest design norms seen in the new Passat and Golf.

The biggest change however would come from under the skin. The next gen VW Polo will be underpinned by the MQB modular platform which would offer weight savings and improved dynamics (not that the current car is dynamically challenged). A set of improved 3- and 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines will be in the mix, paired to manual and DSG automatic transmissions.
