2017 Volkswagen Polo GT TDI seems to be running in its final stage of development, and will soon hit showrooms in India. Folks at Thrustzone spotted an undisguised version of the hatchback wearing red number plates. Since no exterior changes have been made to the car, it looks exactly same as the regular model. The only difference that will be carried by the new VW Polo GT TDI is the updated 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine boosted with a larger turbocharger.
For your information, Volkswagen India recently updated the Vento and Ameo compact sedan with the same powertrain. This updated turbocharged engine delivers 108bhp, while producing 250Nm of torque. On the Ameo sedan, it returns a claimed mileage of 22.7kmpl (MT). The 2017 Volkswagen Polo GT TDI will continue to feature the 5-speed manual gearbox. Also Read – Upcoming Volkswagen Cars in India
