Volkswagen India has today announced that the Polo hatchback has gained a new Comfortline trim with an automatic transmission. With an ex-showroom starting price of Rs. 8.51 lakh, the new trim derives power from a 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI (Turbocharged Stratified Injection) petrol engine.
The premium hatchback is sold in Trendline, Comfortline, Highline Plus and GT grades. The entry-level Trendline and Comfortline trims use a 1.0-litre three-cylinder MPI petrol engine developing 75 bhp maximum power and 95 Nm while the rest of the range is equipped with a turbo TSI motor kicking out 109 bhp and 175 Nm.
The Polo Comfortline comes with 15-inch alloy wheels, front and rear fog lamps, a cooled glovebox, 2-DIN audio system, height-adjustable driver’s seat, tilt and telescopic steering, remote locking, and a rear defogger and wiper. VW is also exclusively offering automatic climate control and a Blaupunkt music system as standard, with the TSI AT version of the trim.
VW currently focusses on introducing a host of new SUVs though as the Taigun mid-size SUV will be launched in the coming months while the facelifted five-seater Tiguan will also debut in the due course of 2021.
