I doubt, that kind of pricing, with just "more than 40%" of localization. Is the price a guesstimation?

But anyways the package seems great, and quite a value for money.

Turning radius is going to be a pain in the city.

Would a 69 bhp 3 cylinder be adequate for this car that house a lot of equipment?

What is a telescopic steering wheel adjust?

Why is the air filter inside wheel housing? Would it be judicious for our muddy conditions?

ABS with EBD, 15 inch with alloys, airbags at 4.5lac ! Great pricing.

How much does BEAT cost?

Edit: emm 185; FE ? And turning radius is a bit too much?

What about the boot space? Is it more than the rivals? If at all VW launches the Polo at this price, its a very tempting package with twin airbags, EBD and stuffs. Sounds a steal !!

Rs. 4,50,000-4,70,000 ex-showroom.

Unbelievable pricing. Let's wait and watch what's in store.

4.5L Ex-Showroom is more than tempting. I recently bought a hatch. Have to think of some new ways to enjoy this car now.

Amazing !!! At this price tag, this much of features is absolutely unbelivable. Pricing would be around 5.5 lac to 5.7 is also a real worthy. I definitely buy this with the eyes-closed if they price it 4.5 lac.

i really really doubt the pricing since there is only 40% localization!!. let us wait for the pricing.

If they give the same spec for the pricing quoted (4.5-4.7l), i will be the first one to book

No way they can price it this side of 5Lakh with 40% localization and with all those standard equipments.

Lets wait and watch!

VW is trying to imply that German cars are more safer than other manufactures by providing safety features as standard.

Great job VW!!

So the Higher version might have a 1.4 engine or even bigger!

I'm sure that POLO competes with 3.99 lac to 8 lac(i.e Jazz) category hatchbacks which none other did before(TreadLine variant).

40% localization with all those features price 4.5-4.7 is bit unrealistic. But let us wait and watch.

Scoop master now please go and update Indicruz thread :-))
