Facelifted VW Polo to get Up!’s engine image

The German based automaker Volkswagen is planning to updated the current Polo range, which should receive a brand new engine, currently used on the smaller Up!.

The facelifted version of the Volkswagen Polo, which is wearing the 2014 model year in its name, meaning that it will make its way onto the market by the end of 2013, has been already caught on camera by spy photographers and it seems that the model will also receive, besides the styling tweaks, which should set it apart from the current generation, a brand new engine. The unit in question is the 1.0 lither three-cylinder, used on the Up!, which is good for either 60 HP (44 kW) or 90 HP (66 kW).

VW Up!’s unit will be offered along with a variety of petrol and diesel engines, all of them with four-cylinders. Besides the new engine, the facelifted version of the Volkswagen Polo will also get a new front fascia and a restyled rear end, with new headlights, new taillights, new front and rear bumpers and a smaller antenna. The interior design is expected to include a modified dashboard and an updated infotainment system. Additional details on the model remain unknown for the moment.
