In the course of 2021, the Volkswagen Group will update two of its most successful compact cars, namely the Skoda Fabia and the Volkswagen Polo. The latter’s forklift was pinched in Germany while carrying out some tests.
The Polo in the photos is wrapped in white camouflage in the same color as the bodywork to hide all the small changes to the bodywork.
New bumpers and headlights
If you look closer you can see the new design elements in the front and rear bumpers. At the front, the new Polo sports a look similar to that seen in the new Golf and Tiguan models. The grille also appears to have received the care of the Volkswagen design team.
It is in the tail, however, that the most important changes are noticed. Two small bulges on the sides of the headlights suggest the new design of the lights that should be larger than those mounted on the current model. Also in this case the style could be taken from the Golf with the headlights that stretch towards the center of the tailgate.
The lower part is also different with a black insert that hides the (fake) tailpipes. These seem wider than those found on the R-Line, the sportier specification of the Polo.
We do not know if the new aesthetic features will lead to novelties also for the engines. Volkswagen could introduce a mild-hybrid variant to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Furthermore, a GTI version should not be missing.
In the cockpit, the novelties should be represented by a new digital instrument panel and a renewed infotainment system. In general, we can expect a more technological car capable of making the most of the MQB A0 platform.
We think the Polo will debut a few months after the Skoda Fabia restyling. The compact from Volkswagen should be offered in a single body, while the Fabia will also be available in a wagon version. In the latter case, however, the wait will still be long since there is talk of a debut around 2022 or 2023.
