Default Volkswagen launches Polo and Ameo in Highline Plus trim

BHPian sidindica shares this info:

Volkswagen has silently launched a Highline Plus variant of the Polo 1.2 MPI/1.5 TDI 89 BHP engine lineup.

It gets 16" alloys (same as GT), a few interior design colour tweaks and a new Head Unit.

Price premium over the standard Highline variant is approximately Rs. 26,000/-.

16 inch alloys for that engine

I think its just a stock clearing exercise, the MPI 1.2 sales must've gone down with the arrival of TSi and TDi.

With the delay in the strategy for India, VW will resort to such antics till 2019

Coming to the Polo Highline Plus, the car is slated for a festive launch. Just like the Vento HL Plus the Polo is expected to get the LED headlights with DRLs , new set of alloys, reverse camera.

In future we can expect a HL Plus trim for AMEO

It doesn't make any financial sense for VW to launch the new 2017 Polo and Vento/Ameo/Rapid based on the new design when they just launched Ameo last year. I don't think they can even plan to launch the new Polo and keep selling the Ameo/Vento/Rapid based on old design since they may not have the capability at their Pune plant to produce two completely different vehicles (I could be wrong).

Things become even more complicated when you throw in the Tata partnership into the mix. The new Polo might never get launched in India if this thing evolves

Won't happen soon. 2019 is the earliest it could be launched here in India.

That's history.

Even I thought so until I came across this Reuters article last week. To be fair, the alliance hasn't been officially called off yet even though the chances of this happening are quite low now.

Volkswagen Polo Highline Plus to be priced from Rs 7.24 lakh, Bookings open.

This variant will be available on the non-GT Polo range in both - petrol and diesel versions.

The Polo Highline Plus is expected to be priced at approximately Rs. 7.24 lakh for the petrol variant, and at approximately Rs. 8.78 lakh for the diesel (both prices ex-showroom, Mumbai).

Quote:
Additional equipment over the outgoing top-spec Polo Highline includes new 16-inch alloy wheels and an upgraded infotainment system with standard reverse camera. The Highline Plus Polo is likely to skip the LED headlamps that are on offer on the Vento Highline Plus that went on sale a few months ago.

Rear Armrest with Ac vent is supposed to be standard on Polo HL+, reverse camera is not.
