Volkswagen is busy testing their Cross Polo for the Indian market and in pursuit the test mule has reached Delhi. One of MotorBash’s reader has sent these pictures to us which feature the same test mule that has been caught earlier.
Caught in Pitampura area, this Cross Polo mule runs with a slightly deformed rear hatch door which might have been caused due to some minor accident. For all of you who are confused about so many new variants of Polo Indian auto media is talking about, we will summarize it for your quick understanding.
What is Cross Polo?
After launching the turbocharged petrol Polo TSI, Volkswagen’s next car is this, Cross Polo. Cross Polo is a variant of Polo which comes with slightly bigger dimensions and a better off-road capability. Apart from cosmetic differences like more pronounced wheel arches, roof rails, body cladding, Cross Polo also gets a higher ground clearance to tackle bad roads with better poise.
All the test mules that have been caught so far, are diesels (which can be made out from their ‘TDI’ badges), and hence it is expected that Volkswagen might only launch it in diesel guise. The good news is that Cross Polo will get Vento’s 1.6L TDI motor which produces 105PS of peak power output and 250Nm of maximum torque. What tune will it go into this Cross Polo is not known but it can be safely assumed that it will not be much different.
These spyshots also reveal that Cross Polo also shares its alloys with the current Polo. In the interest of keeping the car competitively priced in India, Volkswagen will opt for gross parts sharing between siblings which will help the German manufacturer in keeping this Cross Polo a lucrative option for those who seek a hatch-like comfort with some rough-road credentials.
Volkswagen should be launching this Cross Polo soon in our market and a speculation could very well point to an August-September time frame. The question is – At what price will you be ready to buy this Cross Polo?
