In that case, the GT's 1.2 TSi should be quicker than the reported 9.7s to reach 100, after a remap.

Strangely enough, I've not been able to find any concrete 0-100 figures for a remapped GT 1.2 TSi. Can anyone that owns a remapped GT set the record straight? Anyone?

P.S. A lot of people feel that 0-100s mean nothing in real-life driving conditions. But, in a land filled with puny engines and crappy automatic transmissions, 0-100 is by far the best way to judge a car's performance.

Btw, I'm not talking about the GT here, but my crappy Brio AT that does 0-100 in about 15 secs, in spite of its "class-leading" power, light weight and supposedly better 5-speed torque converter.

Here is one: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ml#post3372480 (VW Polo GT 1.2L TSi: The baby TSi)
Also, see the next few posts about a discussion related to flatness between 80 and 100.

And, surprised to see Brio taking 15s. Remember seeing Baleno CVT reaching 100 is less than 13s, and was somehow expecting the Brio to get there faster.

It is a bit disappointing to hear about this 1.0 TSI with under 100 bhp of power. I own a 2011 Polo 1.6 and I was contemplating upgrading to the 1.2 GT TSI. But even though they are similarly powered in terms of BHP, I just did not feel at home like I did in my 1.6 and dropped the idea. Loved the DSG, but there was something missing on the GT TSI as compared to my 1.6.

Now I am wondering what the 1.0 TSI will feel like. But I guess VW had to do something to make the Polo more economically priced.

The 1.0 TSI will most probably replace the 3 cylinder 1.2 petrol which is currently on sale. The 1.2 TSI DSG will still remain on sale as the GT TSI. Just an assumption though.

Personally though, I feel VW are going to end up having more product portfolio than actual number of customers. Here's what I mean:
I am happy as long as they are churning out beautiful/ high grade cars for a slightly higher price range.
Do we want to see more sales for VW in India? I guess yes, we all care.
Do we think they are making losses and might shut shop? I guess no. They are doing decent enough to continue producing such nice cars in India.

But it hurts when they try a Sub 4m to up volumes on one hand, and introduce such mouth watering engine options on the other.
