VW India has brought the 2016 VW Polo for showcase at the Auto Expo 2016. The 2016 update comes with new equipment previously unavailable in the India-spec VW Polo, and its price ranges from INR 5.33 – 8.90 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi).
While there are no exterior changes, the interior gets a overhaul with respect to the equipment levels in the top-end grade. The 2016 VW Polo introduces rain sensing wipers, auto dimming IRVM, phone book/SMS viewer, MirrorLink connectivity and a new touchscreen infotainment system for the first time.
The engine lineup consists of the 1.2-liter three-cylinder MPI petrol producing 75 PS and 110 Nm of torque, the 1.5-liter four-cylinder TDI diesel in power states of 90 PS/230 Nm and 105 PS/250 Nm on the GT TDI, and finally the 1.2-liter TSI four-cylinder turbocharged petrol developing 105 PS and 175 Nm on the GT TSI.
VW has unveiled a new, high performance variant of the VW Polo at the same venue – VW Polo GTI. Unlike the Polo range, the GTI is a 3-door model that will be imported via the CBU route.
