The body of the Polo is resistant to corrosion, the engine is quite powerful and quite unpretentious. In addition, the Russian motorist will also like the price of a car.

Whatever it was, despite the fact that the machine was designed specifically for the Russian conditions of operation, it gained popularity in many countries around the world.

Experts noted that the updated version of the Polo car has become more similar to the Passat. It really is. Borrowing some elements of the body from the Passat, the German designers managed to make the VW Polo sedan more restrained, adult and respectable.
As for the rest, there are no more changes to the exterior of the Volkswagen Polo. The volume of the trunk, dimensions, ground clearance remained unchanged.
Changing the interior and interior of the car
The interior of the car was altered not much, but the main changes are immediately evident. The first thing to note is the modified steering wheel. The rim now has three knitting needles and is more “stuffed” by the controls. As stated by the manufacturers of Volkswagen Polo, the updated steering wheel is much more convenient and better than the previous one. Using it is much easier to drive your car.
The center console itself has changed. Its appearance has changed a little and now, the most expensive version uses a chrome edging. In addition, a lot of functions were added to the standard console set, which were previously installed exclusively for a surcharge.
Added several variations of upholstery. There are new colors and fabrics. Otherwise, there is no change. Salon Volkswagen Polo remained comfortable, ergonomic and understandable for the driver. There is nothing superfluous and the same good visibility that was present on previous Polo models remained.
Disadvantages that appeared when updating the cabin:
Decreased rear sofa. Developers of Volkswagen Polo, when creating a new back sofa, stated that it can comfortably accommodate three people. As the tests show, only two can comfortably sit there;
In the updated version of the Volkswagen Polo, cheap materials began to be used in the interior trim. Perhaps the interior began to look more beautiful, yet when it was created, a cheap upholstery and plastics were used.
Anyway, it is impossible to judge strictly about these shortcomings. The fact is that the update developers had to improve the car and make it so that it would not become very expensive. That is, leave it low cost and affordable cars. The Germans understood that using expensive materials, the car would not be affordable for ordinary people in the Russian market.
