WARMED UP
The new engine breathes life into the Volkswagen Polo
Aditya Upadhyaula

Globally, downsizing is the name of the game in the auto industry. Thirsty V8s are being replaced with V6s, and V6s are making way for fuel-efficient turbo-fours. In our market, where we already have small engines, I didn’t think we could downsize them any further, but as it turns out, we can! Take the updated Volkswagen Polo, for example. The feisty 1.2-litre GT TSI model has essentially been replaced by this model with a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder unit. Surprisingly, with 108 bhp on tap, power is actually up by 4 bhp and torque remains the same. Sure, the new engine makes its power at higher rpm, but that’s just part of the fun.
