I saw the Tacho maxing at 6000rpm (probably redlining from 5) and thats definitely not a petrol engine but could not get a pic from outside, the reflection was too much. Maybe the manual for the Petrol was lying in this car. The car looks great let me tell you and was attracting a lot of attention.

If the Figo gets its act together, Hyundai and Honda better watch out. VW with its first, sensible pricing, is already going to be a hit i can sense it

Looks like 3rd VW showroom in bangalore was opened recently.. Volkswagen Downtown Bangalore. Address is #31, Magrath Road.

Volkswagen Downtown is VW's third dealer Bangalore-WheelsUnplugged Automobile Industry News

Can someone tell where exactly is this located? Is it near Garuda Mall?

Yeah, it's just a short walk from Garuda mall. I happened to pop in last friday to checkout the specs and prices and it appeared they were having a small function but I didn't know at the time that it was new but anyways I was totally ignored by those inside and I came away disgusted. Too much of attitude.

I called VW dealers to book one of these babies. Apparently, they started taking bookings from Jan. From my conversation with the VW dealer, only 1.2 petrol will be available from March. After 3 months, they will introduce the diesel variant. 7 months down the lane, they will introduce 1.6 Highline.

I wonder what is going on. Any Idea BHPans??

Polo's booking is open from Jan. They had mentioned the staggered launch of the engines during the reveal in Delhi.

I am sorry that you experienced this, I was there at the same time as well. They were inaugurating their new show room. Hopefully thats all it was, some very hassled people, who just didn't have time that day.

It is owned by elite motors. VW actually sold a "new" dealership for the downtown location. Apparently Elite wanted it, so they bought it !

Yesterday, I'd been to Palace Road Dealer in Bangalore. The response was very lukewarm. The Salesman told me that the Vehicle will be launched on March 1st and no bookings are taken before that.

Already they're behaving like MSL ??

The VW claimed acceleration figure for Polo Diesel is 0-100kph in 14.4secs. 75bhp and 180nm of torque is generated from the 1.2 litre 3cylinder diesel.
