The teaser images show integrated new headlamps and grille section. The angular headlamps incorporate daytime running light while the new grille gets chrome touches. The bonnet and front bumper have also been tweaked. The second teaser image shows new angular tail lamp. A prominent shoulder line starting from front fender and running through door handles and covering the rear of the car can also be spotted. Squint eyes can also see diamond cut alloy wheels.

Both the teaser images are in line with the leaked images of the new Polo floating around the internet. Volkswagen confirms that the new Polo is larger, more spacious. In the new avatar, the Polo hatchback moves from the PQ25 platform to the lighter MQB A0 platform.

"This Volkswagen can immediately be made out as the original of its class, but also as a completely new generation. A Polo with an expressive design which makes the compact sportier, cleaner and unique within the brand range. This is a car that fits in perfectly with our times – both visually and technologically," explained Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design Volkswagen Brand.

The hatchback is expected to be available with an array of both petrol and diesel mills. One or two turbo-charged petrol engines are also on the cards. These are rumoured to be 1.0-litre TSI three-cylinder and the 1.5-litre TSI Evo four-cylinder petrol mills. Also, a naturally aspirated 1.0-litre MPI petrol engine will be the base offering. A 1.6-litre TDI four-cylinder will be the diesel engine option.
