Details of the next-generation Volkswagen Polo emerge. EDIT: Unveiled in Berlin-vwp.jpg

Quote:
A hot hatch has to be many things to many people; it has to be rapid and practical – and with a 351-litre boot (unchanged over the normal Polo and not far off the larger Golf’s 380 litres), it scores well on the second front, too. The five-door body means access to the rear is easy, and there’s plenty of space back there thanks to the new platform.

That red is disgusting.

VW, what are you thinking? Even boy racers, if they are VW-buying boy racers, have better taste than that!

Sir, I believe that is the body colour being replicated. (You could see the door mirror in the image). VW has been maintaining this practice of body coloured panels in the interiors ever since the super popular VW UP! became a rage among European buyers.

Really? One more reason for me to be glad I emigrated.

It is low-key, laid-back VW design that I have always liked.

As a production model-new Polo GTI-Polo GTI R5 has powerful four cylinder turbo engine with direct fuel injection, which is mounted transversely in front of the front axle.
The volume of rally vehicles is limited to 1.6 litres, in accordance with the regulations. This is enough to generate an impressive 200 kW (272 HP) and maximum torque of 400 Nm.
Sequential racing gearbox, the fifth and the constant drive to all four wheels achieve exceptional acceleration on any surface-either asphalt, gravel or the snow.
The car is just 1.320 kg and GTI rally accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds.

Volkswagen to introduce an affordable SPORTS Variant called GTS in its NEW POLO, VIRTUS and the Upcoming Crossover T CROSS. To launch in BRAZIL and likely to come to India too.

Will be powered by the 1.4 TSI seen in Golf and speculated to be of 150 hp and 25.5 kgfm. This engine will be mated to a TipTronic six-speed automatic transmission.

Performance wise 0-100 Km/h is expected to be under 7.5 sec.

The Polo GTI with 2.0 TSI 200 hp engine, sold only in Europe, and will not be offered in Brazil ( and India?).

Likely to be shown at the São Paulo Motor Show in November this year.

VW must have got the GTI with this engine in the first place in India, and priced it at around 18L ex showroom. Rest assured, I would have been driving one today!!
As the saying goes, Better late than Never I guess.

But hang on, when is the next-gem Polo coming to India....in 2020??

That is the catch here, new platform products from the VAG group will only trickle in from 2021 onward.

Maybe then we will get the face-lifts of the New Polo and Virtus

The 1.4 TSI is an old engine isn't compatible with MQB from what I know. The MQB platform only supports the 1.0 TSI, the 1.5 TSI and 2.0 TSI. This probably will be the 1.5 TSI with 150 bhp.

Not true, 1.4 TSI is available in many MQB cars, case in point being the Octavia and A3 in India itself. Its also available in Golf in a few markets.

The 1.4 TSI is used in the 2018 Jetta.
