The mid-cycle facelift for the Volkswagen Polo will be very mild and won’t feature many changes, according to VW’s chief designer Walter da Silva.

The spy shots confirm da Silva’s announcement, showing a Polo with only a modified air-intake. A renewed upper part of the front bumper is expected but overall work will be limited with some refinement to the cars engine and interior.
