Volkswagen Polo in India
Volkswagen launched the Polo in the Indian market in 2010, and since then it has been a popular choice for buyers seeking a fun-to-drive hatchback. Over the years, the carmaker added new variants and launched several facelifts. The biggest recent update to the Polo was the introduction of the BS6-compliant 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine in March 2020. The carmaker also replaced the dual-clutch automatic with a torque-converter one.
Volkswagen recently announced that they would be pulling the plug on the Polo in the Indian market, and would concentrate on made-for-India products like the Taigun SUV and the upcoming Virtus sedan. There is no direct replacement planned for the Polo hatchback in India, although the carmaker could launch the fully imported new-generation Polo GTI in the Indian market.
