We know we have been chasing many test mules of Volkswagen Polo almost every other day. If you have somehow missed following this development, you can just go through the comprehensive list of all upcoming Polo variants.
Don’t get disheartened by the latest cosmetic-only Polo SR which was launched very recently. The upcoming variants of Polo will be much more than that.
Rohin Nagrani, of BS Motoring, has tweeted a few days back that these Polo variants are expected to start coming out one by one from next month. The first one to make way might just be the most exciting – Polo 1.2 TSI. The Polo TSI will carry a 3-pot petrol engine with a turbocharger. The machine will be capable of churning out a max power output of 104PS and a diesel-rivaling 175Nm of fabulous torque.
These figures are way over the current under-performing Polo’s 1.2L 3 cylinder petrol mill which produces a paltry 75 PS of power and 110Nm of torque. And if you are not awed still, the 1.2TSI returns a phenomenal fuel efficiency figures of 17 kmpl. The new Polo TSI is expected to get a better set of tyres along with a few tidbit changes here and there. Otherwise, the car will look almost the same as the current version with TSI monikers.
Going by these figures, this is the car which we can truly classify as a hot hatch. We expect the Polo 1.2TSI to be priced around 8 Lakh on road which would make it a compelling buy for all the performance enthusiasts waiting for a stonker of a machine.
