1.5TDI: 6.27 – 7.37lakh
Cross Polo: 7.90lakh

*All prices ex-Delhi
The new engine makes 90PS and 230Nm while still promising great fuel efficiency. In the GT TDI the engine makes 105PS and 250Nm of torque. Besides the engine change, the Polo range has also received a subtle facelift. Changes at the front include a small redesign for the headlamp, some chrome garnish on the grille and bumper and new fog lamps. At the side you will notice new 15-inch wheels wrapped in new Apollo Alnac tyres (Highline trim) while the rear gets very small revisions to the tail lamp design. There are a couple of small changes to the insides as well with a new silver trim around the centre console and a handsome flat bottom steering wheel that looks like it came off a Golf. The digital display in the instrument cluster is also new and features a very clear and crisp black and white display. The Polo’s strong points of good build quality remain and the new engine makes this more of a complete package. Since the new 1.5-litre diesel falls under the excise limits VW have managed to price the car very close to the outgoing 1.2-litre diesel variant for variant.
The 1.2MPI and 1.5TDi variants will use a five speed manual gearbox while the 1.2TSI in the Polo GT TSI will continue with the 7-speed DSG automatic. The GT TDI meanwhile will continue to be offered with a manual only. In a commendable move, VW will offer all Polos with airbags as standard while all variants except for the base Trendline will get ABS. The 1.2 MPI and 1.5TDI will be available at showrooms from today while the GT TDI, GT TSI and Cross Polo will hit showrooms by September
