… the turbo-petrol engine is now standard in the Comfortline variant

  • Polo Comfortline TSI is priced at Rs 7.41 lakh, Rs 1.08 lakh more affordable than Highline Plus TSI MT.
  • VW Polo Comfortline is provided with two engines: a 1.0-litre MPI and a 1.0-litre TSI.
  • The TSI engine is priced at a Rs 30,000 premium over the MPI engine.
  • VW’s TSI engine develops 110PS and 175Nm, mated to a 6-speed MT.
  • The Polo Comfortline TSI is still one of the most affordable turbo-petrol cars in India.

Back in February 2021, Volkswagen launched a limited-run Polo Turbo edition at Rs 6.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Based on the mid-spec ‘Comfortline’ variant, it was one of the most affordable cars with a turbo-petrol engine, earlier limited to the Highline Plus and GT. Now, while the Turbo edition has been discontinued, the TSI engine has become standard alongside the MPI unit in the mid-spec Comfortline variant. Here are the prices:

The Comfortline TSI is Rs 42,000 dearer than the Turbo Edition. Also, it is Rs 30,000 more expensive than the Comfortline MPI, but the superior power output of the TSI justifies the premium. When compared to the Highline Plus MT variant, the Comfortline TSI is a whopping Rs 1.08 lakh more affordable.

Sure, the Highline Plus validates the premium with features like cruise control, a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rain sensing wipers, and larger 16-inch alloy wheels.

But the Comfortline has all bases covered with a two-din infotainment system with Bluetooth and USB, manual air-con, power windows, a multi-info display, and remote locking. Safety is taken care of  by dual airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors.  

The limited Turbo Edition also came with climate control, which the Comfortline TSI variant misses. 

Under the hood, the Polo Comfortline TSI utilises the VW Group’s 1.0-litre 110PS turbo-petrol mated to a 6-speed manual. The 6-speed automatic transmission is limited to the Highline Plus and GT.

While the Polo Comfortline TSI might be more expensive than the Turbo Edition, it still remains one of India's most affordable turbo-petrol offerings. For the same money, you could consider the Nissan Magnite XL Turbo (Rs 7.49 lakh), the Renault Kiger RXL (Rs 7.31 lakh), or the Tata Altroz XT i-Turbo (Rs 7.74 lakh).
