would love to own that torque master.
It there any tiny bit of chance for the 1.6 TDI??

Another example where diesels get step-motherly treatment. There is 1.6 Polo petrol no sign of 1.6 TDI.

I think 1.6 TDI was never planned for Polo. The early brochures released in April 2010 had only 3 engine choices - 1.2 D & P + 1.6 P.
However the petrol 1.6 was officially launched on 13th Sep 2010.

how is the city drivability of the 1.6?? I heard that 1.2 is more "comfortable" to drive in the city. Can any one confirm please?
So if one does 85% city and 15% highway and wants good drivability, would the 1.2 be a better choice (not considering the F.E, just sheer driving pleasure)?
Thanks

IMO, the 1.6 has much better driveability in the city or highway for that matter as it requires lesser down-shift and take pull away easily on the second rather than dropping down to first (except when having to start from a complete halt). The 1.6 wins hands-down against the 1.2 and is the best thing that could happen to the Polo. Its a pleasure to drive on the highway and not that of a hassle in the city. Over-all awesome fun to drive.
