The images, captured by CarAdvice's spy photographers, reveal a subtle facelift for the Volkswagen city car, with the only visible changes being a redesign of the front bumper and its intake fascia.
More updates may be on the way for the production Polo, however, with our spies suggesting the car in the images may have been an early prototype.
Earlier prototypes of the facelifted Volkswagen Polo have been spotted with covered dashboards, suggesting we can also expect some small changes on the inside when the updated model launches.
The facelifted Volkswagen Polo is set to be unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show in September ahead of its anticipated Australian introduction a few months later, around the beginning of 2014.
The current fifth-generation Volkswagen Polo is now four years old, having launched at the Geneva motor show in 2009.
