More clear spy shots of the Volkswagen Polo emerge as global launch of the German hatchback inches closer.
Visually, the 2018 Volkswagen Polo isn’t dramatically different from the out going car. There are some subtle changes around the car at the front and rear. New headlights are a shade smaller and sleeker with some blackening and the front grille loses the three slats to now being a two slat one. The chrome line has also been removed with the VW badge still holding prominence at the front. Top end variants will get day light running LEDs integrated into the headlights as well.
Rear lights also got the same treatment and are now a tad smaller with more sharper lines. There is also a bit of plastic at the lower end of the bumper to add some sportiness to the design. The rear lines running parallel on the boot are a bit more pronounced as well. 2018 edition of the Volkswagen Polo is slightly longer, so rear passengers will get some extra leg room. The line running down the sides is also a bit more pronounced.
The Volkswagen Polo is an important car for the Germans here in India with many being sold every month in different guises like GT and TDi. Globally, the car sits under the Golf which is a major seller and hot hatch in the International market, like we have the Hyundai Grand i10 and the i20 here.
There have been five generations of the Polo and this will be the sixth in the family lineage. Usually based on the Golf, the Polo falls under the super mini category and is also the base for the Volkswagen WRC rally car. The car will be launched later in 2018 and will feature some interesting details on the inside to make it more appealing.
Too lazy to type anything, so re quoting from the best F1 driver in the world:
“On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit'. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.”
