About Volkswagen Cross Polo


Like the Fabia Scout, the Cross Polo is a compact crossover from Volkswagen stable. It is basically a jagged up version of the popular Polo hatchback. With some visual makeovers and added features, the car looks bigger and sportier than the regular hatchback variant. Volkswagen has positioned the compact crossover above the hatchback. With this cross, the company targets young buyers who look for a combination of sportiness, spaciousness and fuel efficiency. It is the first hatchback-based crossover of the country, followed by Fiat Avventura, Toyota Etios Cross and Hyundai i20 Active.

Keeping the same design philosophy of the Polo hatch, the new VW Cross Polo features the simple yet eye-catching design. Like we mentioned, the crossover is basically a slightly modified version of the Polo hatchback. The most prominent difference between the hatchback and the crossover is the new front fascia and the matte black plastic cladding at the bottom of the car. Up front is a new radiator grille with a thick horizontal slat in chrome, flanked by a bright headlight cluster integrated to high intensity halogen lamps. The front bumper features a wide perforated black matte coloured air dam and a set of rounded shaped fog lamps. The matte black plastic cladding all around adds to its sporty touch and also gives a sense that the ground clearance is high. At the back, the cross has matte black lower half of the bumper, and a silver skid plate at the bottom. The Cross Polo badging on the rear doors look attractive.


On the interior, the Cross Polo looks largely similar to the Polo hatchback; however, there are few changes to upholstery and colour scheme. The seats are covered in Livon upholstery with titanium black finish that suits the overall sporty character of the cross. The dashboard gets black scheme and features quality plastic that complements the premium theme of the cabin. Compared to the previous model, the Cross Polo features new three-spoke steering wheel, silver accents on the central console and restyled instrument cluster. It is equipped with climate control, a multi-function trip meter in the instrument cluster, steering-mounted audio controls, and a 2-Din music system with MP3 player with AUX-in Port and a USB interface along with 4 speakers and a remote control.

Engine & Transmission

Under the bonnet is a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder, TDI engine that replaces the previous 1.2-litre TDI motor. This engine is capable of producing a top power output of 90PS along with a peak torque of 230Nm. Power is transmitted to the front wheels of the Cross Polo via a five-speed manual gearbox.  The petrol version is propelled by a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder motor that is good for 74bhp of power at 4200rpm and 110Nm of torque at 2000rpm. This engine is paired to a five-speed gearbox that transmits power to the front wheels of the car.

Performance & Handling

Volkswagen Cross Polo shares its mechanics with the Polo hatchback, which is known for offering best-in-class performance and driveability. Due to low ground clearance, the vehicle lacks the comfort and performance required on rugged terrains. That said, the good quality suspensions offer stable and soothing driving experience.

Braking System

The Volkswagen Cross Polo is equipped with standard disc brakes up front and drum type at the rear. The braking system is further assisted by ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) that avoids wheel-locking and skidding on panic braking.


The 1498 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 18 kmpl in city and 20 kmpl on highways, while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 14 kmpl on urban roads and 16 kmpl and freeways, respectively.

Safety Features

The Cross Polo is equipped with decent safety and security features such as dual airbags (driver and co-driver), ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System), Engine Immobilizer, Central Locking, Child Safety Lock, Rear Parking Sensors, and front and rear headlamps.


The VW Cross Polo is basically a beefed up version of the Polo hatchback. The plastic cladding only makes it looks tough, though there are no mechanical changes made to it. The vehicle is slightly more expensive compared to its rivals. However, it offers best-in-class quality and driveability.


The Volkswagen Cross Polo that started the compact crossover segment in India today has a handful of rivals such as the Hyundai i20 Active, Fiat Avventura and Toyota Etios Cross.


  1. Good build Quality
  2. Ride and Handling
  3. Good fuel efficiency


  1. Low ground clearance
  2. Second row space

Volkswagen Cross Polo Expert Review

Volkswagen India has not yet launched cars on the same scale as other manufacturers seem to be doing. They have always explored all possible options on the existing platforms. The Polo hatchback has always been the company’s volume seller. It has been positioned as a premium hatchback in the country. While other companies are bee lining to make practical and affordable cars, VW group has often keenly listened to its enthusiasts and made something that caters to these passionate consumers. The Polo 1.6 was one such car which still tops the lists of many. The recently launched Polo GT TSI which tries to combine performance and efficiency too hits the right spot.  The group has g....
