Volkswagen had recently launched Polo GT TSI petrol in India, which now doesn’t seems sufficient to cater the demand right in its stride, and to be true it shouldn’t be, because diesel jags are the new flavor of town, hence the line seems incomplete without the oil burner in the kitty of automakers. To conclude whole things at ease, Volkswagen is seen testing Polo GT TDI diesel in India. No confirmation from the maker for now but we expect something to divulge soon from this Volkswagen marked German stable.
Also recently, the CrossPolo too is spied on Indian tarmacs doing test rounds without any camouflage, and this time the same thing happened with GT TDI as well, no camouflages at all, really great shots captured!
Only speculations for present, the 1.6L ongoing diesel meant to be replaced by the 1.5L sibling of same horizon, which intends to reduce the fuel consumption and also tends to increase the power via weight reduction technique, hence the standards of GT badging can be matched for on-paper markings at least. As mentioned in our test drive, the petrol powered Polo GT is not something to expect figures of a racing like quotient, we hope something similar clauses to derive here too whilst of the costly gearbox and other minute tweaks to compensate for the so called highly priced tags. As learnt, the spied hot hatch flaunts black colored interiors looked being driven from Rapid and Vento, whereas our expectations of price tags also bags to fall in their respective brackets itself, totaling near to Rs. 9 lakh band and more; whilst those advanced features like ESP hill assist etc. not to be excluded from the list of diesel, meant necessary for the niche marketing factor.
Till the confirmation arrives, check out the technical specifications of 1.2L Polo GT TSI mentioned below:
