The Volkswagen Polo was teased ahead of its debut on 16 June at an event in Berlin, Germany. The teaser previews the tail lamp design, shoulder line and the alloy wheel design of the hatchback.

For the sixth-generation Polo, Volkswagen has ditched the PQ25 platform in favour of its versatile MQB platform. This not only shaves off the weight of the car while making it larger and more spacious, it should also help cut down manufacturing costs. The design of the new Polo is more of an evolution, with signature VW elements like the grille and silhouette being retained. However, the headlamps now get LED DRLs and the lines are sharper, giving it an aggressive look. Inside, it gets a new infotainment system and a slew of creature comforts.

Powering the new Polo would be an array of three-cylinder and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. The transmission options would include a five-speed manual or a six-speed unit, along with the seven-speed dual-clutch DSG unit. We can expect the new Polo to be showcased during the 2018 Auto Expo, though it might be mid-2018 before the hatchback goes on sale in India. This will be followed by other cars based on the new Polo platform – the Ameo, Vento and the Cross Polo.
