Celebrating 10 glorious years of India’s hottest hatch: Volkswagen Polo

Kolkata, Aug 14 (UNI) Fun-to-drive. Power. Performance. Are the words that come to mind when you drive along in a Volkswagen Polo.
The brands’ hottest and best-selling hatch completes a decade long presence in India this year. This dynamic carline has redefined age with its timeless design attribute, looking as fresh and new as his younger brother.
A premium hatchback that quickly stepped up to be the safest carline with a 4-star global NCAP rating for adult occupant protection.
Winning many hearts over the decade, the first-generation Polo in India started production in 2009. Since then the Indian market has seen various iterations of the most loved carline and had democratized the industry with class-leading safety features.
For the longest time, the Polo was the only premium hatchback to have dual airbags and ABS as standard within its segment.
Over the years, the Polo has been launched in various petrol and diesel engine options starting with the 1.6L MPI and 1.2L TDI followed by the GT TSI, GT TDI and the powerful, performance-oriented 1.8L TSI Polo GTI version. In the last 10 years, this fun-to-drive hatch has witnessed eight engine options. Thus, allowing customers a wide range of engine options to choose from.
Currently, Volkswagen, Europe’s leading car manufacturer offers the Polo in four engine options:

Polo
GT TSI
GT TDI
1.0L MPI | 5-speed MT
1.5L TDI | 5-speed MT
1.2L | 7-speed DSG
1.5L TDI | 5-speed MT


Speaking on this milestone celebration, Mr Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars said, “Today, marks a milestone in our India journey with the Volkswagen Polo completing a decade long presence in this region. World over, the Polo has been the most loved carline with over 14 million units being sold. We’re glad Polo in India is significantly contributing and has quickly become the best-selling carline in our portfolio. Till date, the Polo receives 45 per cent of first-time buyers with a strong preference towards the GT TSI variant, which comes with our globally renowned DSG gearbox.
Further, it gives me immense pleasure to inform that nearly 31 per cent of women prefers buying a Volkswagen Polo over the others in this segment. Owing to its durability, build quality, safety and fun-to-drive experience.”

The Volkswagen Polo over the last decade has received several accolades across segments by automotive magazines in India and globally. The most noteworthy recognition continues to be by J.D. Power with the topmost rank awarded to the Polo over the last three consecutive years in the premium compact car segment. Followed by the Indian Blue Books award for the highest in residual value in the year 2018.
