Volkswagen made its entry into the highly competitive hatchback segment in India with its Polo small car. The Polo is offered in both petrol and diesel engine options. It sells in consistent numbers and has helped in building the German brand’s reputation in the country. The Polo boasts quality interiors with precise fit and finish and built to last materials. The performance is pretty decent though real world fuel economy is below average.
Volkswagen offers the Polo in three engine options: the 1.2-litre petrol, 1.6-litre petrol and 1.2-litre diesel. The Polo 1.2 is powered by 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder motor that makes 74 bhp of power and returns ARAI-certified mileage of 17.24 kmpl. The Polo 1.6 is powered by 1.6-litre, 4-cylinder motor that puts out 103 bhp of power and has ARAI-certified mileage of 15.26 kmpl.
The diesel version is powered by a 1.2-litre motor that makes 74 bhp of power but a slightly higher torque of 180 Nm. The ARAI-certified fuel economy of the Polo diesel is 22.07 kmpl. Let’s take a look at the variants and features offered in each variant of the Polo.
