If you wanna buy the hot hatch(very good performance) with great safety then there is no other option than VW Polo
Overall Good car, with proper sitting and excellent engine performance. Although safety features are not there in 2011 model still heavy built and you can feel it
This is a fun car for solo long road trips the new polo has 1 liter engine but i own the old 1.5 polo 1 liter engine is also a good engine but i like1.5 one.
This is really a driver's car.So strongly built, So smooth in running, Awesome transmission, Cabin cooling is superb.
I'm driving Polo 1.2 TDI since August,2013. Till date I've driven 1,21,000 km. Most stable car on Highways. Good pickup . In short it is a true driver's car. Will love to replace it with 1 litre TSI but expect Volkswagen to make it a little bit more feature rich car.
It's been 5 Years I have been driving this car. You get to used to it so much ,that you start feeling the other cars are not up to the mark. Not to mention, quality, the heavy yet light to handle, easy manoeuvring, safety are the best features. You may feel the mileage to be a little low in the city, but when you hit the road, easy 22-23 kmpl when you maintain speed of 100-120kmph. But you may drop down to 19-20kmpl over 140kmph. I personally have touched 170kmph easy till now and the control it awesome.When I first thought of buying it, was a little sceptical, but now.. believe me, if I change I may go back to the same as it"s sets your expectations to a standard, and you, without realising will start expecting the same quality and standards in other cars. Thank you Volkswagen for this go to car. Expect your golf in India soon.
i have been using the car since last 7 year and particularly since last three year my daily commute is around 100km/day. car was run so far 75k km and most of the 90% driving done through country side road like pot holes,speed breaker,ups and downs. Vehicle handling,control and comfort in this road was good. indeed my driving was bot rough, so i have replaced the shocks system in FR and RE as well. Mileage i am getting it 15.5km/liter for petrol. Maintenance in service center is bit disappointing as cost is overly priced. So go far outside garage and use the spare from Boodmo which will help to reduce the cost... rest all are okay. So far i am looking far a change but unable to get a replacement for POLO.
Recently I mate with an accident with one dog in the NH16, my Radiator, Carrier, Grille, Vent, Coolant leakage, it has cost 17K in the showroom and after I got repaired in VW Showroom in Vijaywada after 50 km drive again my car temperature increased to 125 Centigrade and now some issue in Engine due to leakage of Coolant in the engine. And the day before yesterday I handover my vehicle to VW Visakhapatnam showroom and now they are giving an estimation of around INR 3 lakhs 39 thousand. I am fully fed up with this vehicle and the company. Someone can help me to know how much will be the cost to repair the engine?
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.
A comfortable vehicle with a good plush interior despite getting the lowest variant. The vehicle is generally expensive to maintain, both service-wise and spare-wise, so take this into account if planning to get a VW car. The car is built complicated- so if expeditions are expected, the risk of a local mechanic not being able to help you creep home in case of any failures is high.
