Wow! Grrrreat shape! Doesn't look one bit like an add-on boot. A far cry from Dzire. Should be a sure hit, if priced/powered/specced sensibly.

Those tail-lamps are duds! Had me fooled at first.Its just red triangular taping over the original lamps,which are of a different design altogether.The white circles are dummy reverse lamps. Very smart!Trying to pass it off as an old Mondeo or Fiesta!

I read it somewhere that the Polo sedan is actually a notchback. Pictures seem to substantiate that claim.

POLO sedan looks much bigger than the Hatch. Hope the wheelbase increased and better rear space.

did a quick shoddy PS job and boy this is the new POLO sedan and did they do a good job at camouflaging! Looks like a ford. In the closer pic, you can easily see the outline of the original taillight and the false red tape.

Also, looking closer, you see the same full size rear head restraints, alloys, etc. I wonder if they are changing anything? And if its going to be an old fashioned 1.6 plonked into this, where is the excitement? Unless they put the 1.2 TSI into this, and add spec deleted from the hatch, this will look AND feel like a Fiesta!

Well the oval thing makes you think its a Ford however it seems to be just a base attachment on which the VW logo will go on. The round recess suggests that it will have the similar opening feature as the Polo hatch(you press the top side of the round logo and the use the bottom portion of the logo as handle to open the boot.

On the other hand the tail lamps have close similarity to the Ford Focus. So its confusing.

The body lines of the spy pics don't match with this pic.
