In India, Volkswagen Polo
Volkswagen introduced the Polo to the Indian market in 2010, and it has remained a popular choice for buyers looking for a fun-to-drive hatchback ever since. Throughout the years, the automaker has introduced new models and facelifts. The introduction of the BS6-compliant 1.0-liter turbo petrol engine in March 2020 was the most significant recent update to the Polo. The dual-clutch automatic transmission has also been replaced by a torque converter transmission.
Volkswagen recently announced that it would discontinue the Polo in the Indian market in order to focus on made-in-India products such as the Taigun SUV and the upcoming Virtus sedan. In India, no direct replacement for the Polo hatchback is planned, though the carmaker may introduce the fully imported new-generation Polo GTI.
In the Indian market, the Polo competes with other premium hatchbacks such as the Honda Jazz and Hyundai i20 “as read and reported by www.autocarindia.com”.
