Thanks for your review.. I bought Polo 1.2L Petrol Trendline 4 days back.... Its simply superb car...
Just the brand value. Stylish look. But pathetic features and very costly. Mileage is also very poor. Very few service stations. Fiat Punto is a better choice for the amount.
Dont compare Fiat with VW.......VW is always much better than fiat
In waht way Ajith?i own a polo..after i bought it I thought that i am wrong..fiat is much better in after sales and spares..wait until you experience...none of the parts are available in india and minimum one month...so take care dont drive much and keep it in garage to show to people that u own a VW...
I also completely agree though I am a owner of highline petrol polo..,after sales service is worst,and if you think it doesnt bother much..you better be aware,In my case due to some non availability of parts they are having my vehicle from 3 months and still i am waiting to hear from them.Atleast dont buy it from vidyut motors pune as it will add morte pathetic feeling of VW.
I own a Petrol Trendline... I have great time with my polo.. Service is good as far as i concern.. But i still didnt face any big problem with the car.. But Car is really best.. Punto & other cars are really not even think to be comparable with Polo.. Polo is best.... I already touched 1200Kms in just 2 weeks... Car is awesome...
I do agree with that,after sales service is poor at Vidyut motors,VW should look into that seriously.No discount on sales. while washing cars water enters in the car from door,poor pick up,poor milage,less features compare to other cars,very less accesories given in car, this will add more financial burden on user.it is very disappointint when we purchase car comfort line 5.5 lacs and NO music SYSTEM provided and insist us to us to purchase the music system of Rs 14/20 thousand from M/s vidut motors otherwise warranty lapses. this ttally emotionally and blackmail to customer. VW should look into that seriously.what will happen same music system fit at other agency for less price than vidyut motos. i bought this car with proud As German car VW , i need clarification for above.

supreb car,lovly interior and shape,truly best car in these segment
helo dude.. ajith is right, vw as decent look, features are loaded with very costly, only 72 dealership. look at fiat 172 dealership. the best value for money fiat puntoemotion pack.. all yu get , blue nd me,mounted steering controls, abs,and lot more, wot yu get in vw.. i feel rear as chepo look compare to front...
Those people who own other cars just have a look at Polo, have a test drive and see its quality then compare your car with Polo. The all above comments about comparison is just a comparison on the papaer.. VW Polo is a great car in this segment. Do you really need a steering mounted controls on your car?... It is not fully loaded with additional features, but it is the best car in this segment than any other.. I own a VW Polo 1.2L Petrol Trendline which costs 5.08 Lacks which is cheaper than i20 Era Petrol & Swift VXI. I am very happy with my car.. Steering is very soft and gear box is very efficient & soft... I get mileage of 13 in city with AC at Medium rate. In highways i get 16... Mind you i am not a drive expert & i use clutch very often...
Where are the sales figures if its such a great car..until i got my polo i used to write same way but once you face some problem and response from vw or dealer you will change your views...hey vw is not great in india..and cant be also..
Hello SOM, Wait and see how much success Polo gets in india... For me the service is good still now. The service advisor helps me a lot to fix all issues i faced till now... I dont know whether u will believe or not, In madurai VW showroom alone, almost over 300 people are awaiting for getting polo. I got my polo after 100 days from booking date... So lets see what happens in future.... My Car is very very great... Punto & other Cars in this segment can even never stand next to Polo....
Sir I would like to know about the maintenance cost of vw polo.Please help
plz help me friends i will buy a car on jan2011 . but i dont know which car i have to buy which is the best i20 or VW polo ? my range 8lac plz giveme replay
buy VW vento or increase your budget and Honda City...
I would suggest you go for VW Vento,midsize salloon.starts at 7.68 lacs mumbai
Arun, you should check Ford Fiesta diesel, I have it for 4 years and it has been great. It started with an average of 20 per lit and even now I get 16-17 (in city). Now I am getting a second car as Polo just because I can't afford a decent SUV right now but need a second car.
You should go for Polo...if even higher budget go for Honda City
Hello friends, After searching from many of new car models I found Volkswagen Polo is very economical and great in looks. Its features are marvelous compared to other same priced car's available in the market.The interiors of the car is mind blowing. It is having a mileage of 12 km/litre in cities and 15-16 in highways. Really am planning to buy this car as soon as possible.Don't miss the chance to go for a test drive!
I just inquired about a spare part - clutch plate at VW showroom in Pune. VW polo clutch plate costs about 23K and MarutiSuz costs 4-5k I am told. If this is the way it is going to cost for spares Polo will cost more than Honda city. When I visited Pune dealer. About 20 people were there to check out the polo car. There were more checking other models as well. All 20 of them were unhappy about the leg space in the back of polo and I could hardly move out from behind the steering wheel. Boot space is great no doubt. Also It's look is robust but that is all. After standing at the showroom for about an hour with my family not a single person came up to tell me features of the car. About 3 persons were handling a mob of 50 potential buyers. One person bought a Venta and remaining 49 went to Hyundai or Maruti probably. I would not buy it simply because there is hardly any space for legs and I am of medium height. My son is six foot and he had to push the driver seat all the way back to get out of the car. I did check Fiat Punto, Hyudai i10 and i20, Beat, Figo and Ritz. Overall I liked Ritz considering Indian conditions. Figo is very good but people are unhappy about the service. So it goes out though its diesel version is getting grreat reviews. Punto I did not like personally because of plasticy interior and bulky size.But there are many happy Punto users.Service is a great concern. 3 of my friends have bought Ritz diesel and are getting about 21 km milage plus great Maruti service. I did like i10 automatic for driving in city. Just have a drive in i10 automatic and you would start thinking all over again. i20 also is great if you buy Asta model. It's diesel version Automatic is is good but very expensive almost close to Honda Jazz. I am presently narrowing on Ritz and I20/i10 automatic. let us see if my purse allows me a good deal.
in Polo, the gear box height is more which distrubs the rear seat middle passenger.. Maintenance is high. But to maintain polo's quality, you need to expend more than your bad looking Ritz (sorry, this is my personal opinion)... Dont compare i10 with polo and its milage. Polo is 1050Kg weight. Which is little more than Swift.. i10 will be jerked when you reach 120KmPH.. In Polo you can solidly go till 150KMPH.. So buy the car according to your needs.. If you need mileage, buy wagonR/Alto/Ritz/i10. If you need stylish & comfort, Polo is best which i decided to go for. My car is very great as it is at 1200KMs.. I hit my car on a small wall which made my bumper scratchy & little bend. I spent 1200 Rupees for repairing it and got the car as it was when i took delivery. I am very happy. Only thing is i need to travel 15Kms away from Madurai to VW showroom and it took 5 hours for repair it. I let my car in the morning and took back it in the evening....
it is true that polo is very stylish and awesome loook but in same segment cars, polo is very costly and low milage,i read that rising the price of polo from jan 2011. I think so it is not favour to polo and not middle class family'car
hi sir so which is best polo or i20
Dont compare polo with I20.My self Sales Consultant,VW mumbai
Very good informations provided through this channel.Keep it up.
hi sir so which is best polo or i20
polo is better than i 20
which is the low mantince car ? polo or i20
i20 is low maintenance.. but it is not better than Polo.
Hi Mr. Arun Kumar, We would like to inform you that no doubt Volkswagen Polo is more stylish as compared to Hyundai i20, pick up and acceleration of Volkswagen Polo is excellent. You can opt for Hyundai i20 because it is more spacious, the resale value is more, the maintenance cost is less and dealership network of Hyundai is widely spread. Thanks
Hi saransh, If your budget is 8 lakhs don't go for micra, polo, the service and parts availabilty is not good for both. If you are in India you try to opt for Maruti Dezire or ZX4, which are good in long drive. It is having much space and create a feeling of traveling in a luxury car. If you are looking for a small size car you can select I20, Ritz, Or swift. Among these swift is more good bcs of space and comfort while driving. I am just sharing my knowledge about these cars. Don't consider my words as the final decision of your selection process. Make a comparison of features with all similar priced cars. Try to go for test drive for all cars that will help you to take a right decision.

Hello Mr.Saransh. Yes this is true that vw polo is a low maintanece car. And this also true that they do service after every 15000 kms. The parts are also less coslty. But the most important thing is that it has a word famous brand name VOLKSWAGEN which is above maruti and hyundai and all. If your budget is upto 8 lakhs then you shoudl take polo diesel highline which is very good. It has absolutely great features. If you want comfort then you should definately take polo(from my side but still the choice is yours). Im just sharing my xperience as i also bought vw polo 3 months back. I was also very confused between polo and i20 bt finally I am happy with my choice of POLO. It is best of all sir! Thank You! :)
Hi Arun, Please don't buy volkswagen, no doubt the car is having good brand image and low maintenance. But leg space is very less. But the important thing is the non-availability of spare parts. The spare parts are very costly. If you are able to manage the costs like 20 to 25 thousand for spare parts you can opt it. But if you are in India go with Maruti or Hundai because service is good. But the brand image is there in Volkswagen. If you are financially very sound you can select Volkwagen.You know previously opel Corsa,it was very nice but now the model stopped. So we can't sure after some years the volkswagen production will stop or not.So if you are not so rich like me please don't take risk by buying Volkswagen. Don't believe the words from showroom people, they are marketing people they will try level best to sell their product. My personal opinion is Maruti Swift bcs of its service and trust. But by performance and comfort 120 is better than swift. But one thing is sure you don't have any problem if you choose Swift or I20. I like both cars.The other things depends on your taste. You don't worry go a head with Maruti Swift or I 20. My wishes and Prayers for you.
Hi Sorry saranash....
Hi sriram i would like to buy VW polo (High line) . but i have 1 doubt which version is best petrol or diesel ? please explain me what is the difference please
I will help you arun.As per my research Polo Diesel is fuel efficiency and lil costly than Petrol.If your dialy travelin is 15-20km then go for petrol or if its more than go for diesel.But i would suggest go for highline best in hatchback Series.Best of Luck.Drive safely and TC bye
Thank you sunil pillai sir .
Please don't buy volkswagen, leg space is very less and the costs of spare parts is very high.
hi geeta how u know volkswagen leg space is very less ? u have polo car
Hi..No i don't have Polo car but I have much knowledge regarding cars. It is a luxury car and branded image is there. But really comfort is not so good. Regarding leg space its a depressing one. You go for test drive and try to adjust your seat to back then you can understand the people who are sitting back can't able to rest their foot comfortably.
Hi Arun, I own a Polo 1.2L Petrol Trendline... Wat ever geeta says is half true... Comfortwise Polo is the best. Leg Space at the back is less compared with i20. But both Swift & Polo has same leg space. The Problem is the middle rear seat. Bcos the gear box is put in very higher position to make easy access for driver (like in all VW, Skoda & Audi) which is very good. But the gear box finish extends to the Rear middle seat. So u feel uncomfortable at the middle bcos u cant keep ur leg in the top of that gear box finishing surface. U have to keep it centre and keep your legs each one side. But for me & my family, this was not a big concern to avoid polo. In any Car, if you extend your driver or co driver seat to back, there will be problem for the rear seat members at leg space... If you need any help, give me ur email id or send mail to email@example.com. I will send you the pictures of the rear seat...
sir i have one dought swift have 4 Cylinders and 1248CC . but VW polo have 3 cylinders and 1199CC . so which car is best pickup and nice driving and comfort swift or polo(highline)Diesel.
Pick up is very good in Polo than Swift. But Swift uses K-series engine which is better than Polo's TDI engines. It differs only 2 seconds in the comparision of reaching time for attaining 100KM Speed. I think swift done it at 12.5 Seconds where as polo does it in 14.2 seconds.. Mind you that you are not going to participate in any race right?....
yes right brother my email id :- firstname.lastname@example.org
Arun, buy a polo highline without any doubt.
Are there any upcoming cars by volkswagen in india.I feel Polo in the international markete is much more stylish looking then the indian model.
Hi John, We would like to inform you that Volkswagen is yet to come with Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Rocktan, Volkswagen Tiguan and Volkswagen Up by next year. Thanks
hey guys.....please help me i am planning to buy a car..and after read this review i confused... i want to know cost of service after 10000 km. 2)after sales service is costly or not. 3)this car will smoothly run in CNG or not . 4) overall cost in terms of bumper ,side mirror,clutch plt.etc
Hi All, I am also planning to buy a car in Jan 2011, my budget is 6L. I am considering Polo 1.2 Comfortline vs. Hyunday i10 vs. other options from Maruti (not thought so far). Preference: Mileage: 8 (of 10) Maintenance: 7 (of 10) Looks: 6 (of 10) Safety: 8(of 10) I will always be based in METRO like Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi etc. I am also eager to know if ABS can be setupped in Polo 1.2 Comfortline Petrol. Also, if people can comment / feedback on petrol vs. diesel performance in Polo.
Hi Lubhit, ABS can not be fit in Polo comfortline. Polo is a great car for style, luxury and comfort. Milegae is average as it is a premium hatchback. Maintenance is little more than hyundai/maruti.I own a Polo 1.2L petrol trendline which costs 5.10Lacks on road. I took petrol becasue the average KMs per day for me is 10Kms. If you travel more than 25Kms per day means go for diesel. i10 is not a premium hatch. So it gives more mileage but no comfort at driving. If milegae & safety is important, then go for i10 higher models or Rits or Astar higher models. Becasue Polo petrol higher model is more than 6Lacks which exceeds ur budget. According to me, Polo is the best car in hatchback.
Hi.... m from himachal....i'm gonna buy a vw trendline petrol ..is this a good car for hill stations ? ..n i wanna know about the mileage
hey sunny....this car is good in mileage in this segment and in city 11 kpl and on highway 16 kpl.....and after sales service is 8500 rs every 15000 km or 1 year.....i personalty met many cars users of polo i got this information from that......
@ MILAP i dont think so that it can cost dis much. on the other hand, polo was launched on 24 feb 2010. and service interval is 1 year. i am not able to understand how and where u have met the usersssss. and comparing with i 20, its service costs around 3000 rs every six months. 6000 a yr
@ ANKIT .... HEy dear i am from AHMEDABAD gujarat...i met one user he did one service on 15500 km...he told me that i also call in VW show room they GEVE me same answer . 4000 RS ENGINE(SYNTHETIC ) OIL out of 8500 :) and 1 year or 15000km whichever ever come first so here in this care no issue regarding time period .......also i came to know cost of side mirror is 2000 labour , 300 for wiper blade( RIGHT SIDE) ,LIGHT 2200....
i think that sriram is ful luv with his car lik a gf ok first congrats sriram for ur polo yaah its awsome car as i own skoda fabia petrol version and we both share same engine but if u see features wise fabia hands down its base model gets airbad 60:40 folding seat ratio other than that its doesnt get power windows in base model but more space than polo and service network of skoda is more than vw .
Hello Ankit, Yes Skoda fabia is a good car and have good space than Polo. It has important features in base version itself. I appreciate that. I considered Fabia as well. But i dont like the appearance of the car and importantly the new skoda fabia (price reduced) is not as good as it was in old fabia.... Still it is a good car... Except the feature wise, Polo is a master of Fabia in all case though the share a common petrol engine where in polo, it has minor tweaks (in fuel injection part) to increase fuel efficiency.. Considering the style & build quality, Polo is best... Regarding the service, We all know the reason of failure of Old Skoda Fabia is becasue of the disasterous service plans by Skoda. Both Skoda & VW are of same group companies, and VW is well aware of the same situation of Skoda Fabia doesnt happen with Polo. For the moment, overall dealers of VW in 73 in india.
ohk thanks for the reply u gav me and i believe u will enjoy ur new car and me too
and ofcoure a small vaccum clearner , airfilter on the roof , acvents for rear pesengers under front seats and i got fabia base model @ 4.80 in delhi . Skoda fabia really a fab
ohk thanks sriram u gave a nice reply i would consider it and enjoy ur new car and mee too
POLO mint with a hole .... VW POLO hole in ur purse ; ))) Nowadays see many POLO with no VW logo ..... so tried to find out how much does it cost to the owners .... and it is a whopping Rs 1600 / - , Gosh how much they will charge for the other spare parts then !!!!
