Volkswagen India has made Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) a standard feature across the entire variant lineup of Polo hatchback in the country. Earlier, only the Comfortline and Highline grades were offered with ABS as safety feature. But now, even the base Trendline trim would come loaded with this advanced braking system as standard. Just so you know, dual front airbags are already a part of standard fitment across the entire Polo lineup from 2014.

With ABS being a standard feature on Polo, Volkswagen has become the second auto manufacturer after Toyota to offer dual front airbags and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) as standard features across the entire product portfolio in the Indian market. The Indian Government has already made it clear that new cars launching in the country, from 2018 onwards, would have to come with ABS and airbags as mandatory safety features. Even the ministry of Road, Transport & Highways has proposed a new car assessment program for India, named as Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program (BNVSAP), on the lines of Euro NCAP. It is learnt to be functional from October 2017 and rating the cars on safety standards by conducting several crash tests.

Recently, the German automaker launched the Polo AllStar Edition at a sticker price of Rs. 7.51 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, New Delhi) in the Indian market. Being a special edition, it was limited to the Northern India only. The Volkswagen Polo AllStar Edition was based on the top-end Highline trim and was offered in an exclusive Silk Blue color - borrowed from the sibling Ameo. Riding on 15-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, the special edition had AllStar badging on the B-pillars and scuff plates. It also featured rear A/C vents; only the second hatch in the segment to boast this feature after the Hyundai Elite i20. Though, mechanically, it remained unchanged and came with the same 1.2L petrol and 1.5L diesel engines.
