The hatchback is powered by a 1.6-litre TDI diesel, the same unit which powers the VW Vento and Skoda Rapid sedans.

The oil burner puts out 105PS and 250Nm of torque, and comes paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox.

The performance levels should be better than the sedans since the Polo weights around 90kg lighter. The GT TDI returns an ARAI certified fuel economy of 19.78kmpl.

Visually, the car is similar to the GT TSI. GT badges are spotted on the front grille and the hatch door, and a TDI badge is also pasted on the boot. The 15″ alloy wheels are the same as the Highline variants of the regular hatchback.

On the inside, improvements are again reminiscent with the GT TSI. Chrome accents, leather wrapped steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake lever, and sporty black and grey upholstery with contrast stitching sum up the changes.
