VW India has launched a new top of the line, sporty variant of the Polo called the Polo SR (Sports Racer).

The VW Polo SR gets some sporty add ons and is available only with the 1.2 litre petrol engine. The hatchback is equipped with what VW India terms as the Aero Sport package which includes skirts all around, rear roof spoiler, 15″ alloy wheels and chrome exhaust finisher. There are also SR badges on the C Pillars.

Stepping inside, the Polo SR gets “Livon” Seashell cloth upholstery. The standard equipment include Climatronic air conditioning, electrically adjustable ORVMs, adjustable steering wheel (reach and rake), height adjustable driver seat, rear parking sensors.

The Polo SR comes with the upgraded RCD 320 2 DIN music system with 4 speakers and USB, Aux-in and Bluetooth connectivity.

However, the performance junkies don’t have much to cheer about as the 1.2 petrol engine is the same as the regular Polo. The normally aspirated engine puts out a modest 75 PS of power. Slipping in the 1.2 TSI turbo petrol motor would have fully justified the “Sports Racer” tag.

The Polo SR is priced at Rs. 6.27 lakhs (ex-showroom New Delhi) and for that price it packs in a reasonably rich equipment list. We wonder whether VW India will launch the SR variant in diesel Polo as well.

    You can easily make out how the wheels have been inflated to fill up the wheel arches. :/
