75 bhp diesel for 8 lac on road. Has VW been doing pot? They have written their obituary before launch.

Thanks Amartya,

I should have put in a disclaimer saying that I haven't really looked at the diesel aspect, because I'm terribly biased against diesels.

In any case, isn't the Multijet quite ordinary now, considering that its become so common (Tata, Fiat, Maruti all have it)?

What I'd like to see is the 1.2TSI and 1.4TSI engines from VW, and the 1.4 T-Jet from Fiat. Its about time.

All are on Road prices in Bangalore.

1.2 Petrol is going to be delivered from next month
1.2 diesel and 1.6 Petrol from June
It seems that even the lower limit of price will not affect swift/punto/i20 sales. but honda really needs to worry for their JAZZ.

If this is the case VW Polo is a dud already. With those engines i dont think they have what it takes to get in the premium market. These prices are ridiculously high.

Keep in mind Bangalore has ridiculously high on-road prices.
Prices elsewhere might look appealing.

Uh-huh. The VW dealer in Delhi told me something of the same. Say on road, the 1.6 would come out to be something between 7.5 - 8 lakhs.

I guess you missed out the part where it was mentioned that the prices are "On Road" Bangalore. Bangalore's on-road is on the higher side comparatively.

I was anticipating something like 7Lakhs for a 1.6 petrol. Well, 50k more is not good news. I am going to have my fingers crossed and hope it is only 7Lakhs or less.

"Owners willing to compromise safety will stick to Japanese cardboard boxes."

Which manufacturer are you referring to?
Koreans, chinese and the japs. They all look alike. Guess he couldnt tell a korean from a jap!

Chill guys...

Bangalore has the highest taxes in India. If you compare Bangalore on-road prices it will always be insane regardless of the segment.

Thats why manufacturers never release their vehicles in Bangalore on the first day!

Too early to conclude. Looks like VW has tuned the 3-cyl to 'perfection' for indian roads. Whatever that means.

Let GTO's report clarify on engine quality.

If it's anywhere near Fiat FIRE 1.2 refinement, i will buy VW any day.

Price may be of the high end variant.
Entry level variant should be less.

The 1.6L comes only with the Highline variant. Also I think that ACI could had have misprinted the price of the 1.6 version, it must be 6.40 lacs(ex-showroom). If that is the case then the B'lore on-road pricing may well be true.
