That explains the current offer of 60k only for the diesel MT when I enquired this week with a dealer.

Polo is speculated to get a face-lift AGAIN! This could be the last (hopefully) update until the Next Gen Polo/ small car is launched. To be in line with the upcoming Vento face-lift!

Polo lineup as well as the Vento are set to receive a facelift soon. Yes, yet again! This will include DRLs for the headlamps and touchscreen infotainment system from the Ameo. Except for the badges, the Polos will also receive all the updates from the AllStar edition as well.

I spoke to the VW Dealer sales person today and he said that the updates like alloy wheels, arm rest would come to GT versions also. However they are not sure of the pricing yet.

The dealers are also aware of the speculated updates to Polos. But they are not sure when the updates will happen.

My SA was saying it could be in March 2017 but he also advised he could be wrong.

I spoke to my SA and he says Polo GT will not get any updates from Allstar. Anyone else got a similar feedback? Also next month the GT will be available with dealers and no change in price.

Thanks for the brochure link. The alloys look tempting.

The updates that Polo is receiving these days makes the car well equipped but the price is going to be a major factor here

Hey guys, I have a few queries related to my 1.5TDI,

1. I'm wondering if any of you have changed\sourced the under-bonnet noise dampening board? A rat seems to have bitten most of that part and I'd like to get it replaced..

2. Has anyone used a K&N air filter in place of the stock ones? Is the performance difference considerable? Any other recommendations\alternatives to K&N?

3. I'm planning to get the roof of my Red Polo painted with glossy black instead of the expensive-3M wraps (costs 9k just for the roof). What are your thoughts about this?

I guess this should be available in the service center and even if it is not available, they should be able to order it for you.

Please speak to the service center regarding this as this might void the paint warranty that is being provided by VW.

Looks like the Allstar is doing something good for the customers with the current Polo's discount. One of the dealers has offered me a discount of around 1L and I can take the insurance from outside. Thats a total saving of about 1.2-1.3L (considering the current insurance is 33K for TDI HL and another 15K for the so called elite insurance )

Volkswagen Polo Allstar prices start at Rs 7.51 lakh. ( ex- showroom Mumbai), the Polo Allstar costs ~ Rs 30,000 more than its standard top-spec counterpart.

Saw the All-star in flesh today, believe me, those alloys shod on the 185 look pathetic to say the least, aftermarket, sourced from some local vendor it seems.

Default Re: Volkswagen Polo : Test Drive & Review

I need some advice to decide on my new car purchase.

My usage will be around 1500km per month (700km in city and 800km on highway). This usage is a bridge between petrol and diesel. I have narrowed down to the following two models.

1. Elite i20 Petrol Asta(O)
2. Polo TDI Highline

I prefer a car with good ride quality and with safety features. This will be a self driven car with occupancy of 3 people on the maximum.

I have gone through a lot of reviews and youtube videos. But need input from the owners who have had this car for a while.
Can the fellow TDI owners here please give me reasons on why I should go for TDI than i20 or any other car in this segment
