5 Reasons Why India Will Miss The Volkswagen Polo

Volkswagen Polo-You Will Be Missed

Volkswagen Polo has created a legacy in a decade in India. In the running span of a decade and more than 2.5 lakh units sold, the Polo has established itself like a German legend which we will surely miss. The Volkswagen Polo was first showcased to the Indian audience back in the 2010 Auto Expo in Delhi. It is unfortunate to bid farewell to the hatchback this year, and the enthusiasts will do anything to bring the updated version to India or halt this move. Let’s see why India will miss the Volkswagen Polo:

  1. Reliability (Sort of…)

  3. The TSI Engines

    Polo was the only car in India that VW offered 10 engine options throughout the running span of a decade. There were a pair of turbo engines packing an extra edge of power & performance and making the car more youthful among those engine options.
