Volkswagen Cross Polo Launched in India @ INR 7.75 lakhs



Volkswagen India, the Indian subsidiary of Europe’s largest carmaker, announced the launch of the much discussed Cross Polo today. With this, the Polo range in India will include a bold, aggressive looking variant which should appeal to hatchback buyers who are in market for an affordable lifestyle vehicle.

The New Cross Polo is priced at Rs. 7.75 lakh (ex showroom, Delhi) and the car will be available with only the 1.2 litres TDI diesel engine.

Sales of the New Cross Polo will commence from August 23, 2013.

Commenting on the launch of the new Volkswagen Cross Polo India launch, Mr. Arvind Saxena, Managing Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Group Sales India Pvt. Ltd. said “The Polo is an important carline in the Indian portfolio and with ongoing updates we keep it relevant and exciting for our customers. The Cross Polo has been created for those looking at a premium hatchback in a sporty ‘crossover’ style.


The new Volkswagen Cross Polo comes with a set of new, rugged looking bumpers, black side cladding and wheel arches, silver painted mirrors and roof rails, 5-spoke alloys, ‘Livon’ titanium black upholstery and Cross Polo stickers on the sides.

The Cross Polo’s 1.2-litre TDI engine has a maximum power output of 75 PS (55 kW) @ 4200rpm and a maximum torque of 180 Nm @ 2000 rpm and comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. This is the same engine that powers the diesel variant of the regular Polo and unlike what we were wishing for, the Cross Polo doesn’t get a 1.5 litre oil burner.
