What is the difference between Old Volkswagen Polo and New Volkswagen Polo?


Answer -

The new Volkswagen Polo gets minor exterior updates, but manages to look more refreshing and sportier. The updated version receives a new front bumper, revised front grills with two black horizontal slats, chrome on air intake grille, new fog lamps and cornering lights, body colored mirrors, new TOSA alloys, re-designed rear bumper with reflectors and license plate enclosure. The new Polo is now available in a new orange colour option.

The hatchback gets fine treatment on the inside too. The new sporty steering wheel with mounted audio controls is a substantial change. The silver-finish centre console, new fabric upholstery, brushed aluminum finish, redesigned audio system placed next to the climatronic air-conditioning are among the other tweaks. The rest of the interior remains same. The most impressive thing about the new Polo is the standard dual front airbags safety feature that makes it the safest car of the segment.
The Polo facelift gets its power from the new and more powerful 1.2-litre TSI petrol and 1.5-litre TDI diesel engines. The 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder, 12-valves TSI gasoline unit provides a maximum power of 74bhp at 5400rpm with 110Nm of torque at 3750rpm. The GT TSI’s 1.2-litre turbo engine is tuned to deliver power of 103.6bhp with 175Nm of torque. All variants are offered with a five-speed manual transmission, except for the GT TSI which comes with a seven-speed DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) transmission.

Similarly, the new Polo GT TDI is more powerful than the regular diesel variants. It gives a peak power of 103.bhp with 250Nm of torque. While, the 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder, In-line TDI powered regular diesel models are propelled to offer 88.88bhp of power at 4200rpm with 230Nm of torque at 1500rpm – 2500rpm. Unlike the older version, the new Polo hatchback, with heavier engine takes a plunge on fuel efficiency front, which is now 2kmpl lesser than earlier.
