Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

VW will launch the refreshed 2014 VW Polo facelift on July 15. However, a report on Overdrive says that the launch will not cover the GT TSI and GT TDI variants of the hatchback. According to the report, the GT variants will launch a month after the regular Polo goes on sale.

VW Polo GT TDI Review grille
The refreshed Polo GT TSI and TDI will launch in August.

The GT TSI variant will keep its 1.2-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine which produces 105 PS and 175 Nm of torque. It will also retain its gearbox which happens to be a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The GT TDI on the other hand will get its 1.6-liter engine replaced by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder motor, probably producing 105 PS of power. The transmission, a 5-speed manual, will continue unchanged.

Our reader, Mr. Aniket, spotted the refreshed GT TSI on test a few months ago.

The refreshed GT variants of the Polo, like the regular versions themselves, will get new bumpers with chrome foglight enclosures, headlights with different mirror elements, a new 3-spoke steering wheel and a silver insert for the center console.

Dealers of VW India have started accepting bookings for the refreshed Polo ahead of its launch next month. The booking amount is INR 50,000. Dealers have been told to expect three trim variants on the Polo – Comfortline, Highline and Highline+. Expect the GT variants to be offered only in the highest trim level.
