Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

According to sources, VW India is gearing up to launch the VW Polo SR edition showcased at the Autocar Performance Show earlier this month.

The Polo SR edition will be the second special edition Volkswagen launched in India after the launch of the IPL edition series.

The Polo SR is sort of an accessory add-on at the dealer level. The car will lack changes to the mechanical kit. The motive is clearly to boost the appeal of a a particular trim level by adding novelty. Toyota launched the Aero edition of the Corolla on the low-end J variant a few weeks back that helped create some added excitement.

Going by the equipment on the example that was showcased at APS 2012, the Polo SR comes with the following features –

  • Front and Rear body skirts
  • Side skirts
  • Chrome finish on the trunk
  • Chrome tipped exhaust
  • Roof spoiler
  • SR badge

These additions are on top of features offered on the 2012 Polo which comes with tinted headlights. The starting price of the to-be launched VW Polo SR is revealed to us as 6.14 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

We don’t have details on the nature of the donor car, but our best guess is that the SR edition is either based on the Volkswagen Polo Comfortline (P) or the Volkswagen Polo Trendline (D). As these are body parts, Volkswagen can make them available across all variants, if the response is pleasing.

Whichever is the variant, it is only a matter of time now before we have an official word on the matter.
