2022 Volkswagen Polo facelift teased ahead of Thursday’s unveiling

A mid-life update to Volkswagen Polo will be revealed on Thursday, with changes set to be largely cosmetic in nature.

The facelifted 2022 Volkswagen Polo will be unveiled globally on 22 April – two days from now – ahead of an expected Australian arrival slated for the first quarter of 2022 (January to March inclusive).

A teaser image released alongside the announcement provides a glimpse at the updated Polo’s front end, with the facelifted city car to gain revised LED headlights and a new grille, with an LED daytime-running light strip running across its width, as per the Golf, Arteon and other recent Volkswagen models.

Spy photos confirm elongated tail-lights and new lower bumper designs will feature at the rear, while it’s likely the interior will benefit from a handful of upgrades, including a new touch-based climate control panel, and updated infotainment software.

Few changes are expected to the engine line-up for Australia, with the 70kW/170Nm and 85kW/200Nm 1.0-litre turbo three-cylinder, and 147kW/320Nm 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder mills likely to carry over locally.
