Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which car to buy Volkswagon Polo gt tsi or i20 2020?
  • Both cars are good enough. If we talk about Volkswagen Polo, it offers a very relaxed drive experience on the highway as well. The cabin, while missing some essential features and rear space, definitely offers the best in class build quality and insulation. The only other thing that will initially bother you is the less refined engine and the crude engine note it brings with it. If you value build, drive experience and ride over feature gimmicks and are willing to sacrifice on space, the Polo would be a good fit for you. On the other hand, Hyundai’s i20 is offering a striking design, premium quality interiors and a wide range of engine-gearbox options. Features continue to be a strong point for the hatchback. Plus, with the update we see the i20 becoming a better family car, with more space and practicality. The new Hyundai i20 doesn’t just offer loads of new tech, it also works better as a family car than before, albiet for a bit of a price increase. You may compare both the cars accordingly. Do take a test drive in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • Vw polo has one disadvantage that is its child locks over the rear doors are electronic and is operated from the drivers seat..in the event of any unfortunate accident if the electronics malfunction the rear passengers cannot get out
Q. Which car should I buy, Polo or i20?
  • Both Hyundai i20 and Volkswagen Polo are brilliant premium hatchbacks and hold their own forte in the segment. Though the Polo lacks in space and offers a shorter features list than its rivals, it still manages to do a lot right though in terms of solid build quality, strong set of essential features as standard and adds on top of that, great performance and a delightful driving experience. If space matters little to you and you intend to drive and experience the car more, the Polo hasn’t lost a beat with this update and polished up it’s performance and handling. The new i20, on the other hand, doesn’t just offer loads of new tech, it also works better as a family car than before, albiet for a bit of a price increase. If you just want a decently loaded family hatchback with a reasonable amount of frills and gizmos, there are more VFM options available. If you want that next class equipment, then the 1.2 petrol and 1.5 diesel command a reasonable premium for several added features you get, while the turbo petrol combines that with more drive sophistication and excitement. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - Battle Of The Hot Hatches: Tata Altroz iTurbo vs Volkswagen Polo TSI vs Hyundai i20 Turbo

    This was my first car, after dabbling with zens of the world, i finally arrived at this beauty. 2009 was the year when there were a lot of scepticism about the premium hatchback segment. However still decided against the wave and spent 10 years liking this car and my decision every moment. Reasons to like the car was always the ahead of time facilities at that point of time - auto door lock, aux connection, rear window washer, foglights ( which i had used as DRLs for quite some time). I have had a couple of trips in very precarious road conditions and evertime this trusted beast delivered. So in case you are reading this review wondering wether to buy a refurbished old i20 or not.. as long as your garage guy does not show any particular apprehension, i would say go for it.

  • 5.0

    Overall i20 is complete package in terms of mileage performance and safety.I bought this after rejecting maruti swift that time because of cheap build quality.I have mileage of 19 kmpl on highway with ac on 1 point outside temprature was around 40 degree.Ride quality is better than all other maruti cars.If you dnt wan to beleive then go for test ride.One pint to add very less cabin noise as compare to all other cars.

  • 5.0

    The car has mainly been used for annual mumbai-goa trips and that is why only 10614km has been driven.It's in good condition and the only reason i'm selling is that i want to shift to an automatic transmission.

  • 5.0

    This is my first car.I was confused between venue and i20.But i was impressed with the low end torque and comfort of i20.5 people can sit comfortably.This is my first car and i am so far satisfied with it.

    Outstanding. Driven almost every hatchback, but found polo is best. People says its service cost is on higher side. I have not found such issues with my polo. And if you have to spent 2 or 3 thousand rupees extra annually.i think its nothing to lose.Build quality of this car ride. Handling.comfort.5 stars. Only con i found is a little noisy. Otherwise go for polo. Best ever mini car for your family.
