‘Powerful and efficient’ – Volkswagen India launches Polo GT TDI

2013 Volkswagen Polo GT TDI (India)

Volkswagen India has today launched the latest Polo variant, the GT TDI. Mooted for some time, the five-door hatchback packs the same 1.6-litre TDI engine as its saloon sister, the Vento. With 250Nm/184lb ft of torque and 104bhp, the Polo GT TDI is the most powerful diesel hatchback in its market segment. Volkswagen India says that it has been ‘engineered to provide unmatched performance combined with excellent fuel economy.

The Polo GT TDI is available with the same equipment and trim as the 104bhp 1.2-litre GT TSI. Highlights include: 15-inch ‘Estrada’ alloy wheels; ‘GT’ chrome grille and rear badges; leather-wrapped steering wheel (multifunction), gear knob and handbrake lever handle; ‘Climatronic’ automatic air conditioning; and RCD 320 music system with USB, aux-in, SD Card, Bluetooth and four speakers. It comes in a choice of three colours, which incidentally, are the same as the Mk 1 Golf GTI: Flash Red, Candy White, and Deep Black. Prices start at Rs 8.08 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Commenting on the launch of the New Polo GT TDI, Arvind Saxena, Managing Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Group Sales India Pvt Ltd said: ‘We are committed to bringing in the latest and the most efficient vehicle technologies to the Indian market. The New Polo GT TDI has been created to cater to the requirements of Volkswagen’s discerning customers, who want the best possible mix of strong power delivery, outstanding driving dynamics as well as class-leading fuel efficiency.’

2013 Volkswagen Cross Polo (India)

It’s the latest in a line of Polo models to be launched in India. The Cross Polo (note the space in-between the two words) is also now available to Indian buyers, priced at RS 7.75 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Powered by a 1.2-litre 74bhp TDI engine driving the front wheels, the Cross Polo looks identical to the model sold in mainland Europe. Launched on 23 August, the Cross Polo gets off-road styling cues including 15-inch alloy wheels, plastic lower body cladding, unique bumpers, and silver roof rails and door mirrors.
