|Volkswagen Malaysia today showcased the updated Polo, in conjunction with the kick-off of its festive season campaign. The locally-assembled Volkswagen Polo, in hatch and sedan, features important exterior and interior refinements.|
At a glance, the Volkswagen Polo now features a single upper grille chrome line and more dynamic headlights, along with the rectangled foglights and chrome-accented sculpted line that runs along the lower bumper. The profile of refreshed Polo resembles that of the previous edition to the fullest. From the rear, the new Polo has the familiar combination lights and reflectors on the bumper. A slightly elongated duck-tailed spoiler with third brake light gives the updated Polo some character, when viewed from the side or rear.
Inside, the 2015 Polo gets two important updates; one for the center console and the other on the steering and meter bezel. The center console now features a silver garnish that provide the Polo with the impressionable interior of the Golf or even, the Golf GTI. More silver garnishes are utilized for the bottom-out steering and meter cluster to further highlight the compact’s premium and upbeat interior.
As with the previous Polo, the refreshed Polo gets a 1.6-liter 16-valve MPI engine; paired to 6-speed automatic transmission. Capable of reaching an impressive top speed 183 km/h, the 2015 Polo is still rather frugal in terms of fuel consumption, at just 6.5l/100km.
The Volkswagen Polo 1.6, Sedan as well as the Golf, Jetta, Passat and Tiguan variants incorporate a comprehensive list of safety features. The Jetta, Passat and Tiguan, for instance, come with ABS with Brake Assist, Park Distance Control, ESC, six airbags, ISOFIX, Rest Assist (Tiguan only) and Electronic Vehicle Immobilization.
