VW Polo TSI BlueMotion spied in India
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Could be imported to India for testing.
Autoblog India has posted images of an imported VW Polo TSI Bluemotion with test plates in India. The prototype could’ve been brought to India for testing purposes.
It’s unclear if the model imported for testing is the 1.2 TSI Bluemotion or the 1.0 TSI Bluemotion. It could be the latter variant that produces 75 PS of power. The model featured is fitted with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The Bluemotion technology integrates features such as start-stop system, change gear indicator and regenerative braking. Products equipped with such features in India are offered tax incentives by the government, as seen in Maruti’s SHVS system in the Ciaz.
For the Indian market, Volkswagen is prepping to launch the hotter VW Polo GTI, which packs a bigger 1.8 TSI engine. It is expected to go on sale later this year.
