VW Polo Sedan for India in the Works

Volkswagen is reportedly working on a sedan flavor of the already-popular Polo that could be released in India. Furthermore, the German brand is studying the possibility to establish new production lines for Passat, Jetta and Touareg, three models that are currently sold to Indian buyers as imported models.

"Passat, Jetta and Touareg would be obvious candidates for a dedicated assembly lines whenever numbers justify an assembly line,"
Volkswagen Passenger Cars India chief Neeraj Garg said according to the Hindustan Times.

While the five-door version was officially rolled out earlier this year, Volkswagen debuted the three-door edition at the Frankfurt Auto Show last month and said it will become available before the year end.

It will be available for a starting price of 12,150 euros (entry level Polo 1.2 Trendline with ESP). The choice of engines for the car extends to six, with power outputs ranging from 60 PS to 105 PS. There will be three equipment levels available: Trendline, Com­fortline and Highline.

The top of the range Highline, which is priced at 15,900 euros, features chrome trim on the lower air intake, 15-inch alloy wheels and front fog lamps, three-spoke leather steering wheel, front centre armrest, multi-function display and tire pressure indicator, height-adjustable sport seats and leather-trimmed handbrake grip and gear knob.

Rumors are also claiming that Volkswagen is planning a convertible variant of the Polo. A final decision on such a project is yet to be made but it appears the company has already made some design sketches and an announcement is likely to surface in a few months.
