Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI was revealed in March 2020. We had the specs, we had the prices! You may now think what was left other than that? FYI, few details were still unknown. These include the safety kit and features on offer. By the end of March 2020, we were already familiar with the comfort and safety features that Polo has on offer on the base and the medium level trims. The top-end variant was still not known.
We now have the official information on what the Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI Highline Plus has on offer. This is the highest trim of the hatch available in the Indian market. Lat’s have a look at all the features this variant has got. Before we start, let’s have a quick recap of what we saw on the VW Polo BS6. The new BS6 version of the Volkswagen Polo comes with 2 engine options. The first one is a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that generates 76bhp. Another one is a 110hp, 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine.
Talking about the gearboxes, the naturally aspirated unit comes paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The turbocharged mill gets a 6-speed manual and torque converter automatic as an additional option. The two lower variants get the normal engine while the tag of the Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI is held only by the top-end Highline Plus only!
