Volkswagen Polo GTi Launched in India at Rs 25.99 lakh

Volkswagen has finally launched the most awaited Polo GTI in India, surprisingly priced at INR 25.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The hot hatch is the most powerful Polo in the lineup, using the 1.8 L turbo petrol motor producing 192 PS and 250 Nm of torque. The car uses a 7-speed dual clutch transmission and sprints from 0-100 kmph in just 7.2 seconds. It claims a top speed of 233 kmph. Being lightweight, the Polo GTI sprints much more quicker than other cars with the same engine.

Volkswagen has allotted just 99 Polo GTI examples for India while it feels too much overpriced for the segment it actually falls in the country. Just for a similar example, the Fiat Punto Abarth costs just INR 9.99 lakh and takes just 8.8 seconds for the 0-100 kmph sprint, but unfortunately is not safe enough like this car. Volkswagen claims a 16.34 kmpl of mileage for the Polo GTI, providing the same with 215/45-R16 wheels for enhanced looks and steering control.
