Improved spec and standard LED lights enhance VW’s classy supermini

New LED lights, a new light bar across the front and an improved suite of high tech gadgetry are the highlights of a newly updated VW Polo line-up, which has been given a subtle makeover.

The front bumper has also been given a sharper look, while Matrix LED headlights are available on higher trims for the first time.

At the rear, there are LED lights available for some trim levels, while new ‘Polo’ lettering is now placed below the VW logo, just in case you’d forgotten what it was. 

All models now get digital dials as standard (as opposed to just higher trims) and there’s a new, more intuitive panel for the heating and air con controls. 

The Polo’s driver assistance systems have been upgraded to include advanced lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control and a new central airbag up front. VW says ‘you’d struggle to find another car in this class that offers such an innovative spectrum of assist systems’.

There are also changes to the trim line-up, to more closely match the new Golf range. This includes Life, Style and R-Line grades, with standard equipment including a touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity, 15-inch alloy wheels, and a leather steering wheel.

Upgrading to Style adds Matrix LED headlights, extra chrome trim and a bigger touchscreen, while the top-spec R-Line model brings sportier styling, 16-inch alloy wheels and LED fog lights.
