All-new Volkswagen Polo Hatch gets evolutionary design in latest teaser

With just a few days left before Volkswagen reveals the all-new Polo, the German automaker recently released new teaser images of the new-generation hatchback.

Slated to make its official debut on Friday, the 2018 Polo appears to have a sleeker front fascia, as well as a more prominent rear. Sporting an evolutionary design, the sixth-gen Polo gets reshaped headlights along with LED light signatures. On the other hand, the front grill received some minor revisions which complements with the new headlight design.

Around the back, the taillights now appear bigger and seem to incorporate LED lighting. A new set of alloy wheels reminiscent from the refreshed Golf may also make its way in the next-gen Polo. It is also set to be bigger than the older model thanks to the new MQB A0 platform which also underpins the Seat Ibiza. On the flipside, the new Polo could be lighter as the new platform makes use of new alloys.

An array of new four- and three-cylinder engines are expected to power the all-new Polo, along with a new Bi-Fuel powertrain. To be available in both the Golf and Polo, the 1.0-liter Bi-Fuel TGI engine is an inline-three that can run on both gasoline or compressed natural gas (CNG) and benefits from a turbocharger. Volkswagen claimed that it can produce 90 PS in its current setup.
