Volkswagen is all set to launch the Polo with its 1.2-litre TSI petrol engine on April 25, and it will be called the Polo GT.

The 1.2-litre TSI motor will get a potent combination of direct injection and turbocharging, resulting in an impressive power output of 105bhp. VW will also be coupling this engine to its DQ200 seven-speed DSG transmission. However, it may not come with paddle shifters and there will be no manual transmission on offer.

The Polo GT will come with a body kit similar to the Polo SR edition to visually distinguish itself from other Polo variants. This means that it will get front, side and rear skirts, a rear roof spoiler, chrome exhaust tip and 15-inch alloys. The interiors will get upgraded materials and aluminium inserts.

VW's first attempt at cracking the petrol hatch segment in India with the Polo 1.6 didn't go according to plan, but the carmaker wants to have another crack at this segment with this turbocharged Polo. There is no word on pricing yet, but the car's 1.2-litre engine capacity will allow this power-packed Polo to qualify for a lower rate of excise duty, and subsequently pave the way for VW to give it a competitive price tag.
