  • Volkswagen Polo Gets Smaller, More Fuel Efficient 1-litre Engine

Torque figures for the 1-litre engine however, as expected, come down to 95 Nm as compared to 110 Nm in the older 1.2-litre engine. The fuel efficiency for the new engine is rated at 18.78 kmpl by ARAI, which is 2.28 kmpl higher than the 1.2 MPI engine that it replaces. There is no cosmetic updates in the hatchback, nor the price has been changed as the Polo range continues to be retailed at the same introductory price as the previous model. You can also buy a three-door version of the Polo with roomful of upgrades, including a 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a performance that can put many an executive saloon to shame. The maximum RPM for the power and torque output has not been mentioned for the new engine.

Volkswagen will also continue to sell the much loved 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine option in the Polo GT TSI which makes 108 bhp of peak power and 250 Nm of peak torque.

Volkswagen India has launched the Polo range with the 1.0L MPI petrol engine at a starting price of Rs. 5.41 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom) in the country.
