Volkswagen Polo SR

Consolidating one of the top positions of best selling superminis in India, VW presents its premium model the Polo SR witch is short for Sport Racer . Basically in the R-line exterior package it comes with the Aero-sport package. Having a quite high price asked by the German manufacturer Volkswahen Polo has no lack of buyers, moreover, contrary due to new appeal and quality materials surely Polo SR will be one of the most wanted premium car models in India.

In the official presentation of the model the VW Group announce: "Mix city driving with sports racing, in a car that's driven by innovation. The new Polo SR will have your heart racing even before you get into the driver's seat. Not only does it come with a surprisingly nippy 1.2L engine, it also comes wrapped in a snazzy new Aero-sport package. A combination that promises to make every drive, the drive".

Equipped with a five-speed manual gear box the three-cylinder base engine for Polo develops 75 hp, witch is not so high performance comparing to the 1.2-liter TSI sold in Europe with either 90 or 105 hp.

Surely the German carmaker is planning to provide more performant engines in the near future. For now he can bring forward the kit fitted to the Polo SR:15-inch alloy rims, a visible chrome exhaust tip, a different lower front bumper, fog lights , sporty side skirts, rear roof spoiler and some badging. For the interior VW Polo SR has an improved RCD 320 radio system with US connectivity, two airbags, rear parking sensors, climate control and a multifunctional steering wheel.

As Mr. Arvind Saxena, Managing Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars says “The Polo is an important carline in the Indian portfolio and we would like to continuously keep it relevant and exciting for our customers. The Polo SR is a good choice for those looking to own a sporty hatchback".
