Volkswagen Polo GT TDI is priced a little over the Polo Cross which was launched a month ago. VW Polo GT TDI is a compact level car with a powerful engine. The car is priced at 8.08 L *. The new Polo GT TDI is expected to be one of the most power packed small segment car.
The car has got decent response from the user community. The Polo GT TDI from the Polo bandwagon defies the logic that a small car cannot have a powerful engine. The car has got a five speed transmission which can outburst a speed of 100km/h in about 10 sec and can match a top speed of 178km/h mark. What excites us more is the car’s mileage which it claims to be around 19.78 Kmpl.
Most of the users who have bought the car have rated the car very high. We came across one of VW polo GT TDI user from Banglore who had great things to say about the car. He has bought the car a few days ago and is extremely happy with his new ride. He feels the car has an efficient engine but the only place where the car fails to impress is its space between the seats. The seats in the rear end feel cramped and short. But considering the fact that the car falls under the small car segment, it’s not among the worsts. The car matches its ARAI Test mileage with an average mileage of 18 kmpl having the A.C running most of the time.
The exteriors are inspired and don’t feel very new. But it does look decent and manages to have a feel good factor. Most users have felt that the car has got not so good looking headlamps and look a little old fashioned from a class car maker like VW.
The car has got good interiors and borrows most of its features from the Polo GT which was launched early in this year. The car has got the DIN music system and the steering wheel is wrapped with decent leather which gives the car a plush feel. The chrome interior trim and the nicely designed dock give the car a youthful feel. The car comes loaded with a host of specs such as climate control, a multi-functional display, central locking with engine immobilizer, Anti-pinch power windows, lane change indicator. The car also packs in the latest safety specs such as the Common ABS, dual airbags, rear defogger and the standard fog lamps.
The VW Polo GT TDI is be available in three shades namely, Candy White, Flash Red, Deep Black Pearl.
CAR ZOOM’S TAKE: – The car is priced a little more than the other polo variants like the Polo cross. We feel the car has brought a lot of good things to the small car market. The most important being a powerful engine incorporated into a small car. We see the VW Polo GT TDI as a trend setter which would encourage more car makers to come out with a stronger engine with a better fuel efficiency.
