In India, the sales of all the cars are slipping somehow; the reasons are quite many though, including the rupee status in comparison to dollar globally. Hence to hike the sales, every car maker is applying new strategies to attract the buyers. Similarly one more company Volkswagen has announced to provide an attractive discount on the country’s most powerful B+ segment diesel hatchback Polo GT TDI. The interesting point is to be noted here is that this discount offer has been announced just after 2 months of the Polo GT TDI launch.
VW Polo has total three variants GT TSI, Cross Polo and recently launched GT TDI. While company already took a big move by launching the diesel version of Polo as per the demands of Indian market in September of this year, now it’s again an offer of concession in price. With this scheme, it could be easily assumed how much eager company is to maintain its one of the best model’s sales in India.
This exciting discount is of Rs. 35000 which includes:
- Three years of free insurance
- Three years of roadside assistance (24×7)
- Free third year extended warranty
- Three years subsidized maintenance package
Alternatively, the Polo GT TDI buyers can also chose a flat cash discount worth Rs. 25000 and an exchange bonus of Rs. 10000 (total of Rs. 35000).
Presently the Polo GT TDI is powered by 1598cc, 4-inline cylinder turbo diesel engine (same as Vento) mated with 5-speed manual transmission gearbox. This muscular engine churns out the max output of 103bhp and 250Nm and offers the impressive ARAI certified mileage of 19.7 km/l.
As stated above this Polo GT TDI 1.6 diesel is India’s most powerful diesel hatchback till now and being loved by Indians, though. But still, company recorded 7.5 percent of sales down of Polo variants in India. Hence it would be interesting to see now if this new offer would do the sales increment of this trendy hatchback.
