Volkswagen Polo 180 TSI spotted testing December 05, 2016 16:08

Volkswagen seems, by all accounts, to be testing yet another variant of the Polo. A test mule with '180 TSI' branding on the tailgate has as of late been spotted, directing towards another petrol engine advancing into the hatchback. The car is guaranteed to be controlled by a 1.4-litre TSi engine, which churns out around 148bhp and 250Nm of torque. A 5-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG might be the transmission options available. The car spotted doesn't seem to have any progressions to its outside. Volkswagen might offer a new set of alloy wheels or a few other enhancements to make the Polo 180 TSi stand out from other variants. On the off chance that Volkswagen launches the Polo 180 TSI in India, it will be situated between the GT TSi and the as of late propelled GTi.
