Fresh styling, punchy diesel, refinement, fun to drive
The solidly built Polo gets a new 1.5-litre diesel engine that does justice to the car's dynamics now. Petrol engines remain the same
The Polo is Volkswagen’s only hatchback in the Indian market. Targeted at the premium hatchback customer, VW has improved the Polo considerably since its launch, especially after the introduction of the 1.5-litre diesel engine to the Polo line up. It is also one of the few hatchbacks to get performance oriented variants like the Polo GT TSI and the Polo GT TDI. Petrol and diesel engines are offered as is a DSG automatic gearbox for the GT TSI model. The Polo takes on the likes of the Hyundai Elite i20 and the Honda Jazz in the premium hatchback segment.
The Polo was updated last year. The changes are minimal – a new front grille, redesigned bumper and a chrome strip running across the air dam. The headlight cluster gets a redesign as well – double barrel now and new fog lamps underneath. The taillamp detail is new as well. Volkswagen has also given the Polo a new set of alloy wheels. While the changes aren’t big, they are noticeable and make the Polo look smarter than ever. The Classy design ages better than cars in the hatchback segment are known to age.
On the inside, the Polo is as understated as its exterior but the solid build and quality materials are evident. The Polo gets a new flat bottomed steering wheel that feels fantastic to use and features steering mounted audio controls. The Polo also gets new seat upholstery fabrics that are more durable. The Polo is also the safest hatchback on sale in India with a 4-star NCAP rating and comes with ABS and Airbags as standard fitment on all variants.
Volkswagen offers the Polo with the most interesting set of engines you can get on a hatchback be it for your regular runabout duties or performance. While a underwhelming 1.2-litre petrol is the least sought after specification of the Polo with just 75PS and 110Nm on tap, the 1.2 TSI is the petrol Polo to buy. The engine gets turbocharged and develops an impressive 105PS of power and 175Nm of torque and comes mated with a 7-speed DSG gearbox. The 1.5-litre diesel comes in two states of tune and is the engine that has completely catapulted sales of the Polo in the past year. In base spec, it develops an impressive 90PS of power and 230Nm of torque while the top GT TDI trim makes 105PS and 250Nm. The 1.2 Polo has an ARAI rated mileage of 16.47kmpl, the 1.2 GT TSI boasts of 17.21kmpl, the 1.5 diesel returns 20.14kmpl while the GT TDI comes with figures of 19.91kmpl.

USER RATING By Mumbaikar on 30 Jul 2014The trouble with VW is that they have confused the market with too many variants of the same car! Other manufacturers have different models which have fewer variants. A customer visits the showroom and then goes around in circles with salesmen giving their take on each variant. Obviously, it is going to be a confused story.Read More...
USER RATING By D on 21 Jul 2014The VW Polo is a good car for someone looking to buy a hatchback. Good for city and short commute inter city. It pretty comfortably can do short highway hauls as well. Seating is not really comfortable,, especially if you intend to spend some time in the car. But it sure is German engineering at its best. A bit high on price point but good things...Read More...
