      6th Gen VW Polo (2017) Spy Shots



      Key point:


      • May debut in early 2018
      • Based on smallest version of flexible MQB platform
      • 200 mm longer, which makes it longer than even Golf 4
      • 70 kg lighter than ongoing 5th gen Polo

      They may trim the bumper covers to launch in India to get benefits of 4 meter rule like what Fiat did with Punto.

      Except the headlights, the car looks older than the current model.

      In one sense this subtle design of new model is good for existing Polo owners who can continue enjoying their Vth gen Polos for much longer period, since it won't look aged in front of the upcoming Vith gen version.

      Similar like the first and second gen Swifts which don't look aged in front of the second gen Swift. Though the upcoming third gen Swift is different story all together.


      Anyways, if anyone noticed, tail lamps and boot lid of grey car is different than the white one posted in the opening post.

      Its a very mild upgrade. But I liked classy styling.

      Orange color looks great. Is that extended black color on roof or sunroof or black glass? Whatever it is, it looks good.

      According to some sources, VW has no planes of launching any new model production line including 6th gen Polo before 2019 except shuffling some high-end refreshes like Jetta, Passat or Tourege.

      This new Polo looked so attractive with its straight lines and cut - even more in the interior. Amidst cars like Micra, Jazz, Baleno with so many curves, Polo stands apart. May be Fabia can stand alongside with it as far as looks are concerned.


      I was looking forward to see this car in India. But gradually it is becoming clear now that India's great middle class car market is over - no place for modern hatchbacks (except Suzuki and Hyundai):

      1. Ford given up on India for its Fiesta.

      2. No new Micra for India

      3. No Skoda Fabia

      4. No new Polo

      5. Honda Jazz is also in a very poor form of its global model.

      6. Chevy already closed down shop.

      7. No Fiat Argo.

      Our choices as far as hatchback goes, shall be limited to Suzuki and Hyundai in near future. Toyota has learned the lessons from Liva/Etios and would not likely offer any car in this segment. Maybe Kia would bring some much needed options, but dynamically Kia cars may be similar to Hyundai cars.

      I don't know what is the chief reason here, people's preference or business environment.
