The BS-VI VW Polo and BS-VI Vento have been launched with prices starting at INR 5.82 lakh* and INR 8.86 lakh* respectively. The price range is similar to that of the BS-IV carlines.
With the BS-VI upgrade the 1.2-litre TSI turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, 1.5-litre TDI turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine and 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission options of the VW Polo have been discontinued. On the plus side, its equipment now includes heat-insulating glass, which should make it more summer-friendly.
