The new 1.5L TDI engine produces 110 PS at 4,000 rpm and 250 Nm of torque at 1,500-3,000 rpm.

In the Ameo and Vento (recently introduced), the new 1.5L TDI engine produces 110 PS at 4,000 rpm and 250 Nm of torque at 1,500-3,000 rpm, thanks to a larger turbocharger. Unlike the two sedans, the Polo GT TDI may continue to not offer a 7-speed DSG as an option, leaving the 5-speed manual gearbox as the only transmission.

No exterior changes are seen in the model spotted. Being the range-topping diesel variant, it gets 15-inch ‘Estrada’ alloy wheels, flat-bottom steering wheel, ‘Milan’ Titanschwarz fabric upholstery, ambient lighting, Climatronic’ automatic air-conditioning, rear parking sensors, and dual airbags.
