VW Polo GT TDI launched at Rs. 8.08 lakhs

Posted on: Sep 13, 2013 - 7:24pm IST

The VW Polo GT TDI, the most powerful diesel hatchback in the B segment, has been launched in India at Rs. 8.08 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

The Polo GT TDI is powered by the 105PS 1.6-litre diesel motor that powers the Vento.

The GT TDI along with the recently launched GT TSI is a part of the performance-oriented variant line. The hatchback is powered by a 1.6-litre TDI diesel, the same unit which powers the VW Vento and Skoda Rapid sedans.

The oil burner puts out 105PS and 250Nm of torque, and comes paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The performance levels should be better than the sedans since the Polo weights around 90kg lighter. The GT TDI returns an ARAI certified fuel economy of 19.78kpl.

Chrome accented interiors are same as the VW Polo GT TSI.

Visually, the car is similar to the GT TSI. GT badges are spotted on the front grille and the hatch door, and a TDI badge is also pasted on the boot. The 15″ alloy wheels are the same as the Highline variants of the regular hatchback.

On the inside, improvements are again reminiscent with the GT TSI. Chrome accents, leather wrapped steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake lever, and sporty black and grey upholstery with contrast stitching sum up the changes.

The VW Polo GT TDI is available in three exterior color options – Candy White, Flash Red and Deep Black Pearl.

    Pretty good option for he petrol heads, who wold like to move on with Diesel car.. But there are rumors that WV is going to launch facelift in early next year. So I don’t know how many takers for this new one …

    I understand that VW performance cars like the one launched have a waiting period . Compared to the boring volume cars , cars with true Heart and soul , still makes difference

    What’s the point of launching same vehicle with different engine options. People in India don’t buy such hatchbacks.
