Volkswagen Polo Legend edition launched at ₹10.25 lakh

The final VW Polo special edition celebrates 12 years of the popular hatchback

Can you believe it? The venerable Volkswagen Polo has turned 12! VW’s small hatchback is still the benchmark for dynamic ability in its class in India, and to celebrate the milestone, Volkswagen India has launched a new special edition of the Polo, called the ‘Legend’ edition. The Legend edition will be a limited launch, with very few units assigned for sale, increasing its exclusivity. Let’s take a look at what you’ll be getting in the Legend edition.

The exterior is where Volkswagen has added the most changes to the Polo for the legend edition. It will get the ‘Legend’ badging on the front fenders and the boot, along with black body graphics on the side that are basically racing stripes. VW has also made the car dual-tone, with a black finish on the roof and rear spoiler.

Volkswagen Polo Legend edition interior

The Legend edition will only be available in the Polo’s GT TSI trim, so there are no changes to the interior. The Polo has not had substantial interior changes in its 12-year run anyway, so it will be a familiar place for most.

Since this is the GT TSI variant of the Polo, the Legend edition shares the same specifications - a 1-litre turbo petrol TSI engine that produces power and torque figures of 108.5bhp and 172Nm respectively. It also gets VW’s 6-speed automatic torque converter gearbox, which impressed us in our review.

Speaking about the Legend edition, the Brand Director of Volkswagen India, Akash Gupta, said, “The Volkswagen Polo is an iconic carline that has evoked various emotions amongst consumers. From its market introduction till date, the Volkswagen Polo has enjoyed the privilege of being the first car to a family, an enthusiast’s dream and the preferred choice for a mother owing to its timeless and sporty design, safety, fun-to-drive experience and strong build quality. The Volkswagen Polo has been the brands’ much-loved product that deserves a grand celebration. For this, the brand is introducing the celebratory limited “Legend edition” for the enthusiasts who will take pride in owning the last limited units of the iconic Polo.”

Volkswagen Polo Legend edition pricing

The Legend edition has been launched at the same price as the Polo GT TSI, which starts at ₹10.25 lakh (ex-showroom). Combined with the limited availability of the variant as well as the exclusive changes made to the exterior of the car, it seems like a good deal for the Polo enthusiasts before VW discontinues production of the hatchback.
