2021 Volkswagen Polo facelift: More dynamic looks, improved tech

American superminis are poverty spec boxes you wouldn’t wish on your mother-in-law, European models are almost luxurious.

The updated Volkswagen Polo has more dynamic headlights, and wider taillights for a mini-Golf look.

A touchscreen infotainment system is standard, as is a digital instrumentation display. Upgraded safety features include Level 2 self driving (stop/start, steer and stay in lane) for traffic.

Gas engines only, and they include 1L MPI 3-cylinder, 1L turbo I3, and 1.5L turbo I4. A GTI model with a 147kW (197hp) 2L turbo I4 (similar to the Golf GTI from a few generations ago) will also be available.
