Was waiting all this while hoping there would be something on the 1.6. Guess there is no point waiting.. even the discounts and freebies are the same.. no change to that as well..

The car only has bluetooth control on the steering, no bluetooth module though. This is just a dummy switch!

Bluetooth module can be added to the setup but then they are terribly expensive. May be VW has reserved it for the next upgrade when it comes.
What the crap !!. Do they have to upgrade in patches !!. Next they will give the bluetooth module and no connection between the module and the switch and say it will be done in next upgrade.

Infact I had booked the 1.6 a few weeks back, put on hold thinking there would be an upgrade, but now have decided to not wait for them. Only the worthwhile in the upgrade(when ever available) would be the steering controls. But it is not a 'must to have' feature and can live without it!

Same here but now am waiting for the Brio to see how it compares in the FTD factor vs. the Polo 1.6.. hence not booked yet and am hoping there are some new schemes come October..

From what I heard recently is that the polo comfortline now comes with that CD Mp3 stereo. True?

@sidindica Yes the specifications of polo diesel variants have been upgraded along with Vento diesel

new polo gets reverse parking sensors on TDI Highline
Comfortline gets Radio with CD player with 4 speakers
all the above addons are with price increase of around 10000.check the official specification sheet provided by VW Downtown Bangalore

I thought with some stiff new competition (new Swift), VW may add some features to the Polo at the same price point. But the prices have gone up! Rs.7.25L ex-showroom for the Polo diesel Highline?

To put things in perspective, for that price in Cochin, you can take home a Swift ZDi, and then have some cash left over too for the party!! And my friend is being offered Punto 90HP at that price - OTR (after discounts). Taxes in Bangalore are really high, but still I guess the difference in OTR prices between these cars would be the same as in Kerala - Swift ZDi would be cheaper by around Rs.1L OTR and the Punto 90HP by about 70K OTR?

More details, please!

Is this the 1.2TSI GTI that was discussed earlier in the thread? Will it have manual transmission or DSG? And will it only be displayed or will it also come on sale sometime next year, maybe as a replacement for the 1.6 Polo?

every automobile company in india launches "Sports or Sportz" versions now and then, or when they have to clear the stock which is not selling in large numbers or make way for new models.

Polo 1.6 will be displayed with body kits and graphics, nothing esle!

no 1.2 TSI, no Polo GTI...please dont expect anything besides the current 1.6 dressed as Polo Sport.

all i can is you can relate to the Polo Cup 1.6 diesel as polo sport with similar body styling body kit.

drive safe.

Man, polo is one expensive car. jazz looks like VFM. The 1.6 HL, has gone up by 40k, since launch.
And why would any one pay, a lakh and 30 thousand for diesel over petrol?!?!

Exactly my thoughts. 8.8L OTR for the HL is insane. That too for a noisy 3 pot diesel engine and a car without ACC, steering controls and a mediocre OEM music system. VW is commanding a very steep asking price just for the brand name. And the engine technology is a generation old!
