After being spied for the first time in June, the new VW Polo GT has been spied yet again now. The new VW Polo range and the new VW Vento are scheduled to be launched on the 4th of this month.

The new VW Polo GT features a new front fascia quite similar to that of the GTI variant that is no longer on sale.

The once-again-facelifted VW Polo GT seen here is painted in a new cherry red colour. The new car embodies subtle changes with cues borrowed from the discontinued GTI variant. It features similar honeycomb grille and a similarly designed sharp bumper. Changes include sporty underbody spoilers and tweaked tail lamps as well. The latter are the same units as the ones of the facelifted fifth-gen model that was sold in Europe. The 16-inch alloys have also been updated with a grey finish.

The VW Polo GT is currently available in 1.2L TSI petrol engine-7-speed DSG AT and 1.5L TDI diesel engine-5-speed MT combinations. The petrol engine delivers 105 PS of maximum power and 175 Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine delivers 110 PS and 250 Nm of peak torque. By March 2020, these BS-IV engines will be collectively replaced by a locally manufactured, BS-VI 1.0L TSI petrol engine.

The new VW Polo GT will come with an updated list of creature comforts and convenience features which will keep it relevant and at par with its segment rivals. It will be safer, too, thanks to high-speed alert system.
