Updated Volkswagen Polo GT TDI spotted testing

Updated Volkswagen Polo GT TDI spotted testing

An updated version of the Volkswagen Polo GT TDI has been spotted testing ahead of a probable debut in early 2017. The changes will be along the lines of the regular diesel Polo as well as Ameo compact sedan.

The pictures reveal no external changes to the car but we can be certain that it will carry the updated 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 109bhp and 250Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a five-speed manual. We believe that there will be no diesel AT option for this iteration of the GT TDI as VW will have to price the car competitively to make its cost effective. For those looking for an AT option with all the benefits of the GT model, you do get the GT TSI.

The GT TDI is available as a single top spec Highline variant which gets dual front airbags, ABS, touchscreen infotainment system, leather steering and gear knob, cooled glove box and climate control as standard. In addition, we believe that cruise control, auto head lamps and wipers will be included in this update.

Now here is where things get a bit odd. In the current scenario, the top-of-the-line standard diesel Polo and the GT TDI are separated by Rs 66,000 (ex-showroom Delhi pricing) and for this you get only a more powerful engine. When this new car is launched, it will carry the same features as the top-spec Polo but will be priced significantly higher due to the updated engine, begging us to ask if it is worthy to continue with this model. As far as we see it, VW could discontinue the standard top spec diesel Polo in favour of GT TDI or vice versa.
