Polo GT TSI, GT TDI and Cross Polo Facelifts to Go On Sale From Early September

Moments back Volkswagen has officially launched their facelifted Polo in India which gets a new 1.5L diesel engine as the biggest change. The regular variants of new Polo with the 1.2L MPI as well as the 90PS 1.5L TDI diesel engine are already available at dealerships and on sale.

However, the new facelifted version of the crossover hatch Cross Polo as well as the higher performance GT TDI as well as the GT TSI have not been dispatched to the dealerships and they will be available only from early September.


The most interesting of the lot, GT TSI comes with the same 1.2L 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which churns out 105PS of peak power at 5000rpm and an impressive maximum torque of 175Nm between 1500 to 4100 rpm.  It is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The GT TSI is ARAI rated at a fuel efficiency of 17.21kmpl.

The GT TDI Polo gets the new 1.5L TDI diesel engine in the higher 105PS tune (at 4400 rpm) and 250Nm of torque between 1500 to 2500 rpm. In comparison the same engine churns out 90PS and 230Nm on the regular Polo. Like earlier the GT TDI continues with the 5-speed manual transmission and returns a fuel efficiency of 19.91kmpl ARAI certified.
