Volkswagen India launched it's 1.6 TDI version of Polo GT today. The engine is a straight lift from it's sedan siblings Vento and Rapid. Yes, a Polo with 4 cylinder TDI at last. Hope the NVH must be improved which was a drawback as considered by many with the 3-pot 1.2L TDI engine. Even though VW website gallery shows a clutch-less foot well, the GT TDI version is offered with 5 speed manual gearbox only. Apart from the engine, existing TDI Highline version is garnished with GT logos at door sill, floor mats, front grill along with sporty pedals and "Superior 'Milan' Titanschwarz" upholstery. The power output is 105 PS @ 4400 rpm and a nice torque of 250 Nm @ 1500-2500 rpm. Delhi Ex-showroom price starts at 8.08 lakhs INR. A quick comparison of other offerings in market: Fiat Punto 90 HP - 7.38 lakhs Fiat Punto sport- 7.60 lakhs Hyundai i20 - 7.64 lakhs As of now, Punto 90 hp is losing the title "Most powerful Indian Diesel hatch". Hope Fiat bites the bullet by launching the Abarth version of Punto MJD by 2014. But, the question is how competitive the pricing can be?
