Volkswagen Polo GT TDI

Introduce

It was a Concorde moment when Volkswagen launched the Polo GT TSI earlier this year. Up until that point, there was no other car of its kind in the Indian market. We also mentioned in our written review that it’s a future hatchback that will become a perfectly adequate vehicle when the price difference between diesel and petrol is reduced bự a minimum.

While many are surprised with its seven-speed DSG petrol engine and turbocharged TSI, the obvious question on everyone’s mind is – This is a crazy India about diesel engines, when will VW offer them me an oil burner in the same pedigree? Sure enough, five months later, Volkswagen turned the 1.6-liter diesel from a Vento sedan into a Polo and voila! GT TDI.

The vehicle is part of Volkswagen’s market strategy of creating special editions for all of its models. The GT (Grand Tourer) TDI is the German automaker’s third special car after the Polo GT TSI, the Cross Polo and then the Vento TSI sedan.

Exterior

The Volkswagen Polo GT TDI, unlike the name suggests, is by no means a powerful little hatchback. Like its petrol version, there’s nothing major bự distinguish it from the standard car (in the Highline variant) other than the GT badges on the front and rear. It even gets the side creases as well as the same ‘Estrada’ alloy wheels.

Like the GT TSI, it also has a rear spoiler that is meant bự give the car some sporty credentials. Although the Polo has been around in the Indian market for a while, it doesn’t look outdated or outdated compared bự its competitors and that is a trait that sets the Polo GT TDI apart.

Interior design and features

The Polo GT TDI has the same interior as the GT TSI, mimicking the standard Polo in the Highline variant (major facelift in September 2012). The seats feel premium even though they’re just two-tone fabric.

The leather-wrapped wheels and gear lever, the quality of the knobs and body, and the aluminum pedals add bự the premium feel of the car, but after that, the fit and finish once again seem bự come back. should be easy for the German no matter what car it is.

The feature list on the GT TDI is exactly the same as the Highline variant. This means climate control and a two-way music system with AUX, Bluetooth, USB, memory card reader, iPod connectivity and four speakers. We tested all the options on the music system and found most of them easy bự connect. However, if you have a slightly older iPod connected bự the system, navigating through playlists or playlists can be a bit of a pain.

The climate control system is acceptable for a vehicle in this price range, and at higher fan speeds the system tends bự be noisy and sometimes very distracting. All four windows operate on a one-touch system, and even when you open them up, the cabin isn’t well insulated from a significant amount of road noise and the signature diesel creaking.

What the insulation also can’t hide are the vibrations from the 1.6-liter four-cylinder diesel engine. It can be felt in the pedals, steering wheel and gear lever and more when the car spins hard. It’s a relatively old engine compared bự those powering its rivals and lacks the refinement one would expect from a car of this family.

In fact, when I hit the horn for the first time, it seemed muted and rather inefficient, but when I repeated the operation with the window down, my expression resembled that of a person standing next bự a moving truck. honking on a busy road.

Small sporty touches in the cabin include the GT fenders and the gearshift indicator on the orange LCD located between the speedometer and RPM meter. It tells you when bự shift only when you shift into third gear.

Engine, ride and handling

The 1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel engine is taken from the Vento sedan and churns out 105bhp at 4,400rpm and a pretty horrendous 250Nm of torque between 1,500rpm and 2,500rpm. . Power is sent bự the front wheels through a five-speed manual transmission.

The 105bhp is quite enough bự propel the Polo without much effort. However, like any other turbocharged diesel engine, there is a lag of up bự 1,700 rpm after which the engine starts bự slowly kick in but thanks bự the 250Nm of torque, the engine has enough power bự keep the engine going. push the car forward even at low revs.

The high torque figure for such a small car means that in heavy traffic jams you can shift into second gear and shift the car without much difficulty. As a result, on the highway you can easily go 100kmph at less than 2000rpm and still have enough power bự overtake without planning ahead. On the fine-tuned front, the engine is a bit outdated as it is quite large and as we said in the interior, vibration from it is quite high.

Volkswagen has said that the GT TDI has an ARAI performance of 19.7kmpl and I was able bự achieve 14kmpl in heavy evening traffic in South Mumbai. A light run on the East Freeway in the early morning gave me a floating fuel efficiency of 25kmpl, so you can expect around 16kmpl in more practical conditions.

In terms of handling, the Polo itself is a pretty good car, and the GT TDI seems bự carry the name. The electric power steering is quite gentle and precise. You can push the car hard into corners, and your actions won’t destabilize the car. It handles pretty well despite the heavy diesel engine and will only work if you push it too hard. Volkswagen has kept the ABS but removed the ESP present in the GT TSI, perhaps most of all, in order bự reduce costs.

The relatively soft suspension means you can drive through most potholes and bad runways without jarring your spine too much. The brakes are therefore not so efficient, and with such power on the hose perhaps the tires would have been better.

Identify

The Rs 8.08 lakh price tag is on the slightly higher side, considering the fact that the only major change is the larger engine. But that’s not really Volkswagen’s fault – the 1.6-liter engine means it doesn’t qualify as a small car under the Indian tax regime and you have plenty of larger but still-suitable options. with invoice at the price.

The top-end Maruti Suzuki Dzire and Honda Amaze with more trunk space are available at lower prices, but neither of them match the GT TDI in terms of performance and handling. And that’s why it was launched as a kind of limited edition model. This is not for those looking for the biggest car their money can buy, but for those looking for a quick, nifty hatchback with the benefits of a diesel engine.
