 Expected: Early 2013, Price: Rs. 7-7.5 lakh

 

The demand for automatic transmission cars in the premium hatch segment in India is on the rise, hence the re-launch of Polo’s discontinued 1.6-litre petrol engine with automatic transmission is a perfect fit for the market.

 

The Polo AT is similar to the Vento Automatic and will feature changes such as new headlamps and alloy wheels for a sportier look. However, the Polo being lighter as a hatch will make up for the fuel efficiency deficit experienced with the Vento’s automatic version.

 

It will make a strong contender to Hyundai i20, which is already in the market. It will be priced approximately between the Rs 7 and Rs 7.5 lakh brackets.
