Hello I am here to give you some more information about the most powerful Polo GT.
There are two variants in polo gt TSI(Petrol) and TDi(Diesel) both are front wheel drive(FWD). Their is not much difference if you just looked the car once because both the normal polo and polo gt looks similar. The major difference is you will find a GT tag in the front grill and in rear, you also get a sporty spoiler on the rear. It is one of the hottest hatch in india Volkswagen launched. The major difference is that GT TSI comes with only Automatic Transmission, there is a manual transmission option in GT TDI.

polo gtIt has a decent black interior compared to dual-tone interior in regular polo. It has a three spoke steering wheel which enhances the driving pleasure and give a sporty touch. You get the USB Bluetooth and the aux and a SD card slot, it has all the steering mounted control which makes easy to change while driving.
polo gtThe mileage impressed me, I thought for so much power it would drink petrol like a cup of tea, but the figures are impressive on paper. The TSI has 17.21 km/L and TDI 19.91 km/L which is really great for the hottest hatch in india. But the mileage mostly depends on the persons driving technique, someone like me will definitely get around 15-16 km/L in TSI (I love petrol cars more than diesel so no comments on TDI).

When it comes to safety it comes with Dual Airbags as standard with ABS(Anti-lock Braking system) and ESP(Electronic Stability Program), (I have explained ABS and ESP in another post). It also has Rear parking sensor and Hill assist.

The power is GT tremendous and is very quick and responsive cause you get the torque at very low 1500rpm.

We are also expecting Polo GTI in india soon which will be 1.8lt engine and 192ps power and priced around 20-22 lakhs.It is going to very rare car cause most people do not buy a hatch for this price in India, only few car enthusiastic will get hands on it.But we have to wait for the car to launch to the people reactions.
