  1. See, only BHP doesn't matter, torque is the one who will push you in the seats. VW priced GT TDi and GT TSi same. As driving enthusiast i will choose the Manual transmission rather than the DSG. TDi is also cheaper to run. So if u want to go for polo, you should go for GT TDi. GT TDi is more powerful, torquey and fuel efficient than TSi. And don't go for auto transmission if u love driving

    Thanks Prashanttroxx. Yes, you are correct and eventually, manual transmission gives more control and the real sense of driving. I will plan for GT TDI. But, there is an another great alternative, Honda Amaze with its 1.5 brand new Diesel engine, with most FE than any car. It has great outer looks but the dashboard and internals not at all catchy. Also, people complained about the constant noise and the engine vibrations creeping into the cabin. Do you think it is a better option overall when compared to GT TDI, when the FE is kept aside?


  2. I think the GT TDI will give u better FE than the GT TSI because its a diesel engine. And regarding performance, Its better in the GT TSI and its ease of shifting gears is a joy. I suggest you to stick to the GT TSI if you want performance and decent FE rather than TDI. And if FE is a concern for you then 1.2 should be ideal rather than TDI. I won't recommend you the TDI because its performance is poor though it will return better FE than the TSI or 1.2 diesel. Hope i helped :)

    Thansk Ixtreme, I really liked the TSI but the FE is a very low 11, based on the reviews. And in my TD with 1.2, I was not totally impressed. So, planning to go for TDI as it has better performance, torque distribution and a decent FE!


  3. Guys, I'm amid one of the biggest dilemmas in my life. I'm unable to decide between Polo GT TSI and the Polo GT TDI. Here are my struggling thoughts:

    Had a Test drive on the GT TSI and the auto DSG gearbox is absolutely delightful and fun to drive, but worried about the sub-par 12-13 city petrol consumption !

    Had a Test drive on the regular Polo 1.2 diesel (not the GT TDI) and while the engine is decent, I didn't quite feel it amazing when compared to GT TSI. (Even the I20 1.4 diesel felt much smoother).

    Now my question is will the GT TDI, with it's much advanced 1.6 diesel engine (the one in the Vento 1.6 diesel model), be significantly better than the 1.2 diesel variant and comparable to the GT TSI's performance and fun? If Yes, then I can stick to GT TDI, as I'm a bit concerned about the fuel efficiency as well. If No, then TSI is the one for me.

    If anyone has driving experience on the Vento or Polo in general, please help me to decide !
