You can go to any VW dealer/VWASS, anywhere in India.

Default Re: Volkswagen Polo : Test Drive & Review

I just booked the Polo 1.2 Diesel Comfortline with the preferred pack kit yesterday. ABS, Airbags, fog lamps are standard. The preferred "corporate" kit comes with 15" alloys, blue-tooth, seat-covers, Side Door Protector and Rubber Mats.

The earlier Polo comfortline didn't have "avg km/l" reading in the MID. Does anyone have an idea whether the current Polo does?

With the facelifted Polo ready for launch , VW discontinues the GT range.

Volkswagen India has officially stopped production of the highly acclaimed Polo GT range in both TSI and TDI versions.
Quote:
With the new facelifted Polo right around the corner, Volkswagen's decision to stop production of its most expensive variants is an expected call. Although it is uncertain whether the new Polo will carry a GT line (or something even more powerful), the introduction of the 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine is expected at multiple levels of tune in order to combat the likes of the Ford Ecoboost and the Tata Revotron engine families

Unhappy Re: Volkswagen Polo : Test Drive & Review

My dream of owning the GT TSI will stay just that, a dream. It was out of my budget when I decided to buy a car last year, and I ended up buying the Petrol Highline.

I can only mourn now. :(

Hold on for some time, VW is yet to spell out the Polo facelit variants. GT option could be available even in these too.

From IAB

"Mechanically, VW will introduce a new 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine on the Polo. This engine would be made in two states of tunes of 8o bhp and 104 bhp, with the more powerful variant getting the ‘GT TDI’ branding.

The petrol range of the Polo, which sees a 1.2-liter naturally-aspirated three-cylinder engine and a 1.2-liter TSI four-cylinder, is expected to continue unchanged. While the 1.2 three-cylinder is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the TSI gets the modern 7-speed DSG transmission"

Default VW opens booking for 2014 Polo

Volkswagen has commenced booking of 2014 Polo on a down payment of INR 50,000. This facelifted Polo is expected to be launched on 15th July in 3 trims - Comfortline, Highline and Highline+ which means that the Trendline variant would be discontinued.

The new Polo will see cosmetic changes both from outside and inside.

What happens to the Cross Polo? Will this be released in the new version.. with GT TDI? That might be interesting to a few.

I don't think this vehicle is for India market, in the instrument cluster mph markings are made bolder than kph.

Also the first image in red for sure is a LHD.

Cheers!

This may not be India specific.
The interiors looks classy though. The current speedo console some how looks tacky, more so with the red MID.

VW needs to actually "care" for the customers and not just launch facelifted models.
Even the commercial advertisements seems downgrade the customer with a "Do you know how to drive" remark!!

The pics are of the new Polo sold in Europe market. I don't think the interiors will be as classy in India but we will definitely see an upgrade.

Moreover I always thought that the built and finish of Polo currently sold in India was best in its class. The 2 things which puts me off are poor leg room for rear seat passengers and after sales service.

VW has been focusing on offering premium quality product which is seen by the quality of paint finish, plastic quality used, DSG for auto transmission, etc. Its time to revamp and address all service related issues.
