Default Help - Buying a new Polo 1.2 TSI

Hi all,

I am interested in buying a brand new 1.2 TSI Polo. Before doing some research, I headed to my local official VW dealer, who gave me a quote. The quote description reads: "Polo Comfortline 1.2 TSI 90bhp M5F Manual".

On the brochure, the only 1.2 TSI engine I can find is 105bhp (not 90bhp). On the internet, I can find no mention of a 90bhp 1.2 TSI engine. When I called the dealer to let him know I cannot find any info, he insisted it exists and that they "very recently started being used in Golf models as well". He also said it would cost me about €2000 more to get a 105bhp, instead of a 90bhp. (???)

Anything I should know about the 90bhp version? Thanks!

Well the VW Polo site only shows 1.2 60PS, 1.2 70PS, 1.2 TDI 75PS and 1.4 85PS they don't show a 1.2 90PS.

Polo Spec

In the Polo Engine overview they show a 1.2 TSI 105PS.

You would have to ask the dealer to show you one and give you a test drive.

Yes they use the 1.2 TSI 105PS in the Golf as well.

Thanks for your reply.

Apparently it does exist, and it's just got out: New Small TSI VW Polo price | Price Of New Car

No wonder there isn't almost any info about it yet. Now comes the dilemma whether I should get a 105bhp or a 90bhp engine..

Well you've obviously gone for the smallest car VW make so I think economy is at the top of your list so I would opt for the 1.2 TDI 75PS as you will have good fuel con with it. I know its less power but the torque will be more.

You should have a test drive in the different versions to see which one suits your driving style.

Hello dwg1986, I was having similar issue with 1.2 TSI. I've seen people posting about the 1.2 TSI DSG when the VW salesman told me they dont exist.

Maybe they only exist in other parts of Europe.

I would so go for the DSG model if they do exist in UK.

Polo Spec UK

They show the 7 speed DSG on the 1.4 85PS and 1.4 TSI 180PS.

I'm actually from Malta, and when I contacted the official VW UK email, they told me they do not sell Polos with 1.2 TSI 90bhp engines. The only 1.2 TSI engine they have in the UK is 105bhp. So I'm guessing the Maltese agent does not import VW cars from the UK, but from some other country as you said.
