Xclusive MB SCOOP: Volkswagen Polo CNG Caught Red Handed

By now you must have already seen our exclusive spyshots of Volkswagen Vento CNG test mules. Towards the end of the article we also revealed about another scoop which we would be sharing shortly.

And here we go!

Along with the Vento, Volkswagen was also testing Polo in CNG avatar. These are the first and only conclusive spypics of Polo in CNG guise. There was a black colored mule with similar CNG stickers (marked in the pic). This is one pretty interesting move from Volkswagen because not many expected Volkswagen to introduce a CNG variant of their small hatch.


The black mule was the refreshed Polo with smoked headlamps. Similar 65kg weights were placed at the rear seats. As you can also note from these spy pics, there is also some testing equipment attached to the car (marked in pic). Contrary to the Vento which looked like an entry level variant, this Polo was more loaded.

It had body-colored door-handles, ORVMs and alloy wheels. This hints that Volkswagen would launch the CNG Polo in a higher variant at least. More interestingly, Polo would not have much of a competition in this segment as there are not many cars which run on CNG.


It is apparent that the same 3-cylinder 1.2L petrol engine would be used as a dual fuel option. It must also be known that Volkswagen has announced that they would be concentrating more on their current offerings and it is becoming pretty evident what they meant by that.

Currently, we already know about the following upcoming variants of Polo:

  1. Volkswagen Polo CrossPolo
  2. Volkswagen Polo 1.6 GTD
  3. Volkswagen Polo 1.2 TSI

Our current scoop makes this the 4th known variant of Polo apart from the existing ones. We expect that Volkswagen might launch this Polo CNG probably sometime during the first quarter of next year.
