Manual Transmission is the icing :)

This Polo is powered by a 2.0 liter TSI four-cylinder turbocharged engine, the same one found under the hood of the Golf GTI too.

This is the fastest VW Polo ever with the specs as follows;

Power : 217 HP

Torque : 350 NM

0-62 mph : 6.4 secs

Top Speed : 151 mph

VW has also throw in 18-inch Cagliari alloy-wheels, standard bi-xenon headlights, sport seats with WRC logos, cruise control, light and rain sensor, winter package, climate control and radio navigation unit, among others.

Production Limited to 2500 units

Now THAT is a hot hatch...2500 units means it quite exclusive. The decals et al are subtle and not too flashy and I just love that steering wheel. Wish this was sold here though prices would be stratospheric.

Seems Autocar UK has already driven one & they feel;

In driving terms it is let down by its inability to place its power to the road, less than stirring exhaust note and a chassis that while providing sound handling traits sadly lacks for engagement.

Also note the first batch of 2500 units will be left hand drive only. So the question to import one to India can be shelved for now :)

I can not understand the sense from VW marketing strategy perspective, when you have Golf with the same power plant and it is slightly bigger than Polo, then what is the sense for this launch? Could the Golf be more meaningful?

However, undoubtedly, this is a hot hatch.
