Volkswagen India is contemplating bringing the New-Gen Volkswagen Polo with a few tweaks specific for the domestic market. The company will soon introduce the MQB AO IN platform in the country. An important product for the Indian market, Polo recently completed 10 years in the country with over 2.5 lakh units of polo GT TDI, Cross Polo and Polo GT sold in the country. 

Based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform, the sixth-generation of Polo was revealed in 2017. At 4,053 mm, the new Polo is longer than its predecessor, though it measures slightly short than the fourth-gen Golf. Also, it has a 53mm longer wheelbase than Golf, which carves out more room for the rear occupants. The boot space also sees an increase from 280L to 351L.
