Volkswagen India is looking to boost sales with the launch of a special edition variant. This new variant is called the Volkswagen Polo ALLSTAR. It features a handful of new features and few cosmetic updates. The special edition Polo has already made it to Volkswagen India’s official website.

Volkswagen Polo Allstar is priced at Rs. 7.51 lakhs for the petrol and 9.07 lakhs for the diesel variant. The Volkswagen Polo AllStar is now available at select dealerships across India.

Volkswagen Polo AllStar Special Edition Exterior Design
Much of the exteriors of the new VW Polo Allstar remain the same as the standard car. The most notable additions include new 15 inch alloy wheels and ‘ALLSTAR’ badging on the b-pillar. Apart from that, there is also a new ‘Blue Silk’ paint shade on offer. This particular colour made its debut on the Ameo. There are no other changes that have been made to the design of the standard Polo. It continues with the same smart looking exterior complete with double barrel headlamps up front. The Polo Allstar edition that is on sale in some other international markets features LED headlamps with daytime running lights and LED taillamps. However, these features a not available in India. We do get the new ‘Linas’ alloy wheels, though.
Volkswagen Polo AllStar Special Edition Interior Design
Even the cabin remains largely unaltered. New additions to the interiors of the Polo Allstar include a front centre armrest with storage space and rear AC vents. Along with that, the special edition Polo also features ‘ALLSTAR’ branding on the scuff plates and metal finish pedals. There is new seat fabric on offer with a contrasting stripe running down the middle. The Polo Allstar continues with the same smart cabin as the standard car. Some of the highlights here are a touchscreen AVN, automatic climate control and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. While the Polo’s cabin scores high in terms of quality, its rear seat lacks space and the boot isn’t very generous either.
Volkswagen Polo Allstar Edition Colours
It is available in 6 colours out of which one is new.
- Reflex Silver
- Candy White
- Blue Silk (New)
- Flash Red
- Toffee Brown
- Carbon Steel
