Default re: VW Polo 1.6L GT TDI coming EDIT: Now launched

Just got the news that the Polo GT TDI is just around the corner. Was about to pay booking amount for GT TSI when my SA asked me if i would be intrested in the GT TDI. He said will share further details in a few days. So have paused the booking of the GT TSI for now.

I have booked GT TSI and will stick to it unless they offer DSG in GT TDI as well.

Was just reading up about the 1.6 tdi in autocar UK. Apparently it has two versions of this engine producing 74bhp and 89bhp if those are the tunes to which the Indian spec will arrive then it wouldn't be an attractive option. Hoping any one will prove me wrong, I'm looking forward to buying this car even if it'll cost me a bomb with bangalores taxes.

The SA version has 105ps and a manual tranny. Interesting thing is it comes with ESP too,hope they launch it here in the exact same specs. Even if priced on par with the GT TSI it'll be a great buy!

That's great news 105ps is superb on a polo. Would the torque figures be above 250nm at least? Turbo charged+abs+ebd+eps+airbags hope they price it say 10k above the gt tsi.

The SA version has the same specs as the Vento diesel, i.e 105PS and 250nm of torque. We can speculate all we want on the prices and specs but it makes no sense, good thing is the launch is just round the corner if sources are to be believed

I know, guessing the price is purely speculative but it gives me a small amount of pleasure and of course fills me up with hope too. Sources are staking a lot on their claims, they will come true

What does SA mean?

If the polo is priced well punto90 is going to have a tough competition, anyway with the coming of the i20 people have started spending on costly hatches! There is no diesel hatch after the Getz crdi with a 3 digit power rating within 10lakhs. This would be exciting!

Got news from a reliable source:
1.GT TDI hitting Hyderabad in a weeks time
2.Not much information on pricing but on road will be Rs.9.xx lacs. Just for comparison, GT TSI is 9.78 lacs in Hyderabad

I am being offered a GT TDI by a reliable source. Since both will be hoot to drive and will have limited production, should I cancel TSI and get the TDI ? I am so confused

If you want that gem of an auto box the tsi is yours

Else

With the prices of fuel going up diesel would be your best bet

I am also inclined towards DSG. But my source has assured me that he can get me GT TDI as early as next week which tilts things in TDI's favor.

Vento and Polo are within 30 kgs (approx) of each other.

How different is it going to be do drive ??

Unless it comes with a handling package or something like that?
