Interiors seem to be quite similar to the existing version. On the front fascia, the hatchback has received a redesigned front grill. The car seems to share some resemblance with the version that was showcased at the Geneva Motor show. The front bumper features chrome highlight that flows smoothly across the bumper. The smoked headlamps looks like ones featuring in the international version of the Polo hatchback. At the rear, the hatchback looks more or less like the existing version except for the reflectors that have been tweaked with a lower positioning. Volkswagen has not spoken about the pricing or exact technical details on the upcoming hatchback, but as per sources the car is expected to be launched sometime in second half of 2014.
