Volkwagen Polo GT TDI Diesel hatchback spotted testing in India

Its been just a couple of weeks when Volkswagen launched their top of the line - Polo GT TSI, powered by 1.2L Petrol engine producing 103 PS of power at Rs 7.99 Lac.  It offers the combination of powerful turbo petrol engine and a technology packed 7 speed DSG dual clutch automatic gearbox.

At this price, VW Polo GT TSI is most expensive petrol hatchback available in the market.  Now, what you are seeing are the spy shots of a similar, highly powered Diesel engine - to be called as GT TDI engine, by .  There is no clarity on what diesel engine the car will be powered with, but the best match could be a 1.6L Diesel engine producing 105PS of power with 250N-m of torque.

The Polo GT TDI  if uses a 1.6L engine will not be classified under a small car i.e. sub-4 meter car and will attract a duty of more than 12 percent. Expect the car to be launched at a price of Rs 8.99 Lac in case it comes up with an automatic gearbox else the price range could also be at levels of Rs 8.25 Lac.

There are no price details indicated by the German carmaker and these are just an assumption. Stay tuned for more information on Polo GT TDI while complete details on Polo GT TSI could be read here.
