November 15, 2016 – Volkswagen India has introduced a special edition of its highly popular Polo hatchback – Volkswagen Polo ALLSTAR. Available in petrol and diesel iterations, this special edition has been priced at Rs 7.51 lakh and Rs 9.07 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai) respectively. This makes it nearly Rs 30,000 more expensive than the regular range-topping trim. At this additional cost, one will get enhanced styling and a bunch of features.
Design highlights of the Polo AllStar edition include ‘ALLSTAR’ badges on the B-pillars, scuff plates and aluminium pedals. With few more cosmetic upgrades, the Polo special edition looks sportier than the regular Polo.
