The 2022 VW Polo facelift finally shed its veils. With an updated exterior and beefed-up feature list, it will go on sale in the international markets soon. Read more about it here.
The German automaker VW has finally revealed the 2022 Polo facelift. The outgoing model of the VW hatchback has been sold in the international markets for four years, and the carmaker unveiled the new model of the car to further extend the lifespan of the Polo hatchback. The automaker has made several changes on the inside and on the outside. The new facelifted Polo makes its debut after the unveiling of Seat Ibizia, which happened last week. Both cars are based on the MQB AO platform, which will also underpin the new-gen Skoda Fabia that's slated to be unveiled in May 2021. On the outside, the new VW Polo features a lot of changes as compared to that of the outgoing model.
It gets an LED light bar like one offered with facelifted Tiguan and Golf, while the headlights are aggressive than before with standard LED lights. The top-end trims will employ matrix LED headlights and a new set of alloy wheels. The rear-end of the facelifted VW Polo gets revised C-shaped LED taillights. The Polo badge is placed in the middle of the boot lid as you see in the latest VW cars. The R-Line variant comes with 16-inch wheels and faux exhaust pipes. The cabin of the new VW Polo features a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, an all-digital 10.25-inch instrument cluster and touch climate control. Mechanically, it will derive power from a 1.0-litre NA petrol unit, which develops power and torque outputs of 80 Bhp and 93 Nm. The engine will come paired with a 5-speed MT.
A 1.0-litre TSI three-pot unit will also be on offer, which is capable of shredding out 95 Bhp and 110 Bhp in different states of tunes. Transmission duties will be done by an optional 7-speed DCT. The hatchback will not be offered with a diesel engine but will get propelled by a 1.0-litre TGI powered by CNG producing 90 Bhp of peak power and 160 Nm of peak torque. A performance-spec GTI version is expected to launch in the coming months. The performance version of the car will get a 2.0-litre turbo petrol unit, which can develop maximum power output of 200 Bhp and will come coupled to a 6-speed MT or a 7-speed DSG.
