VW is gearing up to launch some exciting cars in India. On the sidelines of a new dealership inauguration in Mumbai, Volkswagen India has confirmed the introduction of the Polo hatchback in the first half of 2010, followed by the sedan version in the second half. The German car company has already started trial runs at its production plant in Pune, and many Polo test mules have been spotted testing in India.
The Polo hatchback will be available in both petrol and diesel models. It could be priced around 4.25 lakh rupees which could be brought down if the starting point localization of fifty percent is bumped up.
