Default Re: Rumour: VW considering the next-gen Polo for India

Itís been a never ending debate. This company has dragged the polo for so long in this country that the name has become synonymous with a bored, tired, old, outdated automobile. Even if they actually launch an all NEW version peopleís memory will remain that of an old outdated automobile. So in way they have themselves killed the brand. A polo in any avatar may be a great drivers car, safety and all that, but it wonít sell. So the NEW polo actually may never come.
So itís only pseudo SUVís for India in the low price range.

How about VW bringing the updated Polo here now & selling it alongside the existing one!
May be limit the quantity & see the response but at least give people an option to choose.

This thread is based on speculation.

The next gen Polo will debut not earlier than 2023, could be in an ONLY EV form.

Currently Gen Polo( 2017) will have a face-lift coming up shortly before the next gen debuts a year or two, and it will make ZERO business case to bring this here.

There are umpteen options to soup up the Polo.
Thanks Gannu. The Vento units cost a bomb. Also - would these need a BCM update and is there a chance of any warranty voiding (I suppose not as they would be plug/play types)
I am thinking of DRLs that are directly powered by the battery and use a voltage sensor for turn on.[does vw have a problem with this ?[battery warranty]]

Hey! Are you calling my wonderful car bored, tired, old, and outdated?



Of course... you are right. Sad failure by VW.

All this delay because they will have to chop the car to bring it under 4 metres.

I just can't express my rage in words towards our government's stupid stupid policies and taxation brackets. We are missing out on some really great products that are being sold overseas (which can just be sold as-is without any modifications for India) not just in terms of physical dimensions, but also in terms of engine displacement.

On the other hand, I just hope VW doesn't pull off another Honda here. Honda has also been "mulling" over bringing the HR-V to our shores since last 3-4 years but they haven't managed to do anything apart from mulling, of course.

VW's Polo 's replacement is likely to be the I.D 2 in global markets. Gets an SUV-ish stance. Coming in 2023.

Just came across this New Polo (EU) on Autogefuehl, one of my most favorite car review channels. If the Polo getting unveiled here looks like this, we're in for a treat. Not that I'm gonna run to the dealer and book one, but at least gives me a good feeling that VW/Skoda have woken up from their slumber and taking our market seriously instead of feeding us with outdated stuff.

Check out the video:

As stated, VW has no plans of getting the MK6 Polo to India:

Currently, VW doesn’t have any plans to launch the refreshed model in the Indian market.

ACI's speculation:
Quote:
the new hatch is only likely to arrive in a few years, as VW is currently focusing on its SUVW strategy in India before looking to bring other products. This could mean that the Polo may witness a generation jump for India, with VW only the bringing the seventh-gen Polo to our market.
