As for the highlights, the car sports minute cosmetic updates and draws power from a 1.0-liter TSI turbo-petrol engine that puts out a maximum power of 108hp.
- Notably, the Legend Edition of the Volkswagen Polo marks the end of the car's 12-year journey in India. It is the brand's bestselling model and has sold over three lakh units.

It is flanked by black B-pillars, ORVMs, and 16-inch alloy wheels. Wrap-around taillights and a window wiper grace the rear end.
