The carmaker has equipped the Polo GT TSI and the Vento Highline Plus variants with a 6-speed torque converter gearbox. The Highline Plus variant of the Polo, however, does not get the AT option. That said, the GT TSI and Highline Plus variants of the Polo offer identical features, it is just that the former has sportier aesthetics. The Vento Highline Plus AT is Rs 2 lakh costlier than its manual counterpart, while the Polo costs around 1.8 lakh more.

Volkswagen Polo 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine

The base-spec and mid-spec Trendline and Comfortline Plus variants of the Polo are offered with a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine (76PS/95Nm), while the top-spec Highline Plus and GT variants get a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol TSI unit (110PS/175Nm). Its 1.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine comes paired to only a 6-speed MT, while the turbo-petrol unit is offered with a 6-speed AT as well. 

Volkswagen claims a fuel efficiency of 16.47kmpl for the AT variants of the Polo. In the BS4 era, the Polo and Vento were equipped with a 7-speed DSG option that came mated to a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine. The Polo is the only premium hatchback to feature a torque converter unit whereas models such as the Maruti Baleno and Honda Jazz get an automatic gearbox in the form of a CVT option.

The AT variants of the sedan return a claimed fuel efficiency of 16.35kmpl. This 6-speed AT gearbox will soon be seen on the Vento’s sibling, the Skoda Rapid.

Apart from the mechanical change, both models don’t see any new feature additions. The Polo goes up against the Tata Altroz, Maruti Suzuki Baleno/Toyota Glanza, Hyundai Elite i20 and Honda Jazz, whereas the Vento competes with the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Toyota Yaris and Skoda Rapid.
