The German premium carmaker will launch the next generation VW Polo hatchback, which will be based on Volkswagen’s MQB-AO IN platform. The company is aiming to localise this platform in India to introduce several of its global cars. The new model is longer, wider and more spacious than the previous model. VW has already unveiled the new Polo in the European markets. It continues to feature VW’s evolutionary styling with sharp body creases, large stance, chiselled sides and modish cues. The cabin of the SUV features a high placed touchscreen, virtual cockpit digital instrument display from Audi TT, etc. It will be powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Transmission options will include a 5-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG automatic unit.
