Report – Refreshed VW Polo GT TSI gets a sporty spoiler, deliveries commence

Posted on: Aug 18, 2014 - 10:26am IST

It retains the pre-facelift model’s 105 PS 1.2-litre TSI petrol motor mated to a 7-speed DSG gearbox.

The deliveries of the facelifted versions of the Polo GT TSI and Cross Polo have commenced much earlier than expected. At the launch of the regular variants of the Polo facelift in July, the manufacturer had announced that the Polo GT TSI, GT TDI and Cross Polovariants would be available post September only.

The refreshed Polo GT TSI receives the regular version’s revised front fascia which features a new grille, headlamps with static cornering lamps and a restyled bumper with chrome inserts. The GT badge has been relocated to the right side of the grille from the left.

The driver focused hatchback retains the old version’s wheels but gets glossy black ORVM housings. Coming to the rear, the 2014 Polo GT TSI can be identified by a glossy black roof mounted spoiler which was unavailable in the pre-facelifted model.

The rear gets reflectors on the bumper and a glossy black spoiler.

Inside, the full black interior with a piano black finish for the centre console and a special seat fabric stay unchanged. The car gets a revised instrument panel and the new flat bottomed three-spoke steering wheel.

The VW Polo GT TSI continues to be powered by the same 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol motor which puts out 105 PS (103.5 bhp) and 175 Nm of torque. A 7-speed DSG automatic transmission sends power to the front wheels. The hot hatchback delivers an ARAI certified mileage of 17.21 km/l.

      hi, i am following up with the dealers and customer care of volkswagen but nobody is able to confirm me the launch date of new polo GT TSI, however one of the dealer is claiming that the vehicle has launched and is available for booking but he was unable to show me any pictures or brocture of new polo GT TSI. The website of the volkswagen also does not have the updated pictures of Polo GT TSI. Does any body here has received the delivery of new polo GT TSI.

        Yeah seems fishy for sure as they did same thing to me. But apparently certain dealers get allocated a few gt tsi’s depending on “anticipated” demand. I know I would be getting the first one in mangalore area. The launch seems like an internal one and not well publicized due to less demand. However the website will be updated with the new model once more bookings commence so probably by end of the year. That doesn’t mean you will get car that much later but it all depends on your dealer’s relations with the VW HQ. I will post pictures of mine as soon as it arrives this week. Cheers

        Agree to you George…waiting to see pics of your new car. Also overdrive have posted a review on new polo GT TSI having black spolier and GT badge on the right side instead of left side

      3. George says:

        Yeah Abhishek looks like the expected occurred. Just got a call from dealer saying delivery will be next week. Can’t say I’m surprised. True it has all that and retains the metal brake pedals and hill hold feature. It also has better gas mileage around 17-18 km/l since it keeps the smaller engine. ALSO it has a few mm extra leg room than the previous GT TSI (just like the new standard polo has more leg room than the previous one). Cheers

  4. venkat says:

    can any one of you who have received the car check whether the model comes with parking sensors like the new highline polo as in the above photo the sensors seems to be missing.
