Volkswagen Polo, Vento Get A BS6 Upgrade With 1.0-litre TSI Engine


The existing 1.5-litre TDI, 1.2-litre TSI and 1.6-litre MPI engines have been axed from the lineup

  • The BS6 Polo has been priced from Rs 5.82 lakh to Rs 9.59 lakh.
  • The BS6 Vento has been priced from Rs 8.86 lakh to Rs 13.29 lakh.
  • Both models come with a new 1.0-litre TSI engine developing 110PS of power and 175Nm of torque.

Volkswagen India has revealed the prices for the BS6-compliant Polo and Vento in the country. The BS6 Polo comes with the options of either a 1.0-litre MPI or 1.0-litre TSI motor while the upgraded Vento utilises the 1.0-litre TSI unit only. The 1.5-litre TDI, 1.6-litre MPI and 1.2-litre TSI units from earlier iterations have been axed from the lineup. This comes less than a month before the BS6 emission norms come into effect.

Polo TSI

The Volkswagen Polo’s existing 1.0-litre MPI engine has been upgraded to meet BS6 emission norms. We expect figures (72PS and 96Nm) to remain unchanged on the upgraded model. The upgraded motor is also offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox unlike the BS4 model which comes with a 5-speed manual. 

The Polo BS6 is also now offered with a new 1.0-litre TSI engine developing 110PS of power and 175Nm of torque. This powertrain can be had with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed torque converter automatic. While this powertrain replaces the existing 1.2-litre TSI motor and the lightning quick 7-speed DSG, enthusiasts can rejoice now as the Polo TSI is now finally offered with a manual gearbox. 

The  Polo’s 1.5-litre TDI which came in two states of tune -- 89PS, 110PS -- has been axed from the lineup. The Polo will soldier on as a petrol-only model in the BS6 era. Rivals for the Polo include the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Tata Altroz and Hyundai Elite i20.

Vento:

 

Price Range (ex-showroom)

Vento TSI MT

Rs 8.86 lakh to Rs 11.99 lakh

Vento TSI AT

Highline and Highline Plus

The VW Vento TSI now  comes only with the 1.0-litre TSI engine which has similar specifications as the Polo TSI. The Vento’s 110PS 1.5-litre TDI, 105PS 1.2-litre TSI and 105PS 1.6-litre MPI engines have been discontinued from the lineup. 

Rivals for the Vento include the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Honda City and the upcoming Skoda Rapid TSI.
