Hello A k dixit !!
The difference is with respect to power and torque only. Features depends upon variant choosen such as Trendline, Comfortline, Highline.Highline being top variant, has maximum number of features and also costs much higher as compared to other two.
The 1.2 Ltr TDI was deployed in the outgoing model of polo and 1.5 Ltr TDI is standard across all diesel variants on new polo. The 1.2-litre TDI engine was a 3 cylinder engine which generated max 75PS of power and 180Nm of max torque. In comparison, the new Polo 1.5 TDI engine is a 4 cylinder engine which churns out 90PS of max power and 230Nm of max torque. 1.5 Ltr engine being a 4 cylinder one generates lesser vibration at the idle condition.
The 1.2 TSI and 1.5 TDI are the two engine options which are available in Polo. The TSI denotes petrol engine while 1.2 is its capacity in litres which practically relates to 1198cc. Similarly the TDI denotes diesel engine with 1.5 litres capacity or 1468cc. Both of these engines are specifically tuned for high performance, swift acceleration and produce mediocre economy. The petrol powerhouse produces 75Ps power and 110Nm torque whereas the diesel version churns out 90Ps power wit a meaty 230Nm torque
