There is also rear spoiler and roof railings adding safety and looks. The front grill is roughly rectangular with honey bee mesh structure coupled with fog lamps on either side. There’s a thin strip of chrome outlining the bonnet holding the brand logo right in the middle same as in Polo. Same goes for headlamps too. The wheels are also same with the broad 5 spokes and alloy made, except for the larger radius.
Let’s talk about the interiors now. The interiors will have the same royal aura as in Polo with dual tone fashionable fabric/leather upholstery and interesting dashboard and instrument panel. The top variant is likely to have climatronic air conditioner and power steering with audio controls on it. The music system will be 2-din audio with better sound quality.
