Volkswagen Polo review


Volkswagen has made quite an impact in the world stage. But here in India, the company's dominance is overshadowed by a slew of cheaper and more preferred domestic brands. The Polo is one of the main vehicles that the company banks on to hold its market position here, and to further cement it. This, here, is a classic. When you take a ride in this vehicle, you can feel the promise of German engineering brought true. With a new edition of the vehicle now released, it's about time to re-visit the ol' school model and examine it. 


1. Visually appealing profile, sure to soothe younger souls. 

2. A variety of comfort elements makes the model appealing in the eyes of today's audience. 


1. People looking for a spacious cabin would be let down. 

2. We thought that the performance area could use some improvement. 

Stand-Out Features:

1. The new Infotainment Touch-screen System and Mirror Link system add to the enjoyable cabin experience.

2. With ABS, EPS and other techno programs, the vehicle has a well fortified safety aspect which is sure to go well with buyers. 


The new version of the Polo has been tweaked with some minor updates, specifically to the interiors. On the outside, it remains largely unchanged. Its clear that audiences loved the car's aesthetic body structure and the chrome highlights, for the company has retained all of it. The interiors come with the same, fresh styling that features a double tone scheme, fabric coated seats, and piano black centre console. If you were a fan of the old Polo, wait till you get your hands on this one: The Company has upgraded the cabin facilities with a handful of new features, and we're sure they would go well with customers. Otherwise, the engine, braking, chassis and other characteristics of the machine remain largely unchanged, but it does come with an additional engine variant, the previously available 1.6-litre petrol engine. 


Few people would deny that this is one of the most modern looking, stylishly themed cars of the day. We'll give you this: Among all of the hatchbacks in the Indian market today, the Polo would be the most sought after in terms of looks. 

Despite being a hatchback, you can't help but feel a neat, sporty aura emanate from the vehicle. It carries a graceful, streamlined imprint that gives it something of an irresistible air. Balanced body dimensions further add to the visual aesthetic, with a length of 3971mm, a width of 1682mm and a height of 1469mm. 

We thought that the company had done a great job with the body aesthetic: The vehicle's roof flows over gently, before tapering down towards the windscreen, and merging into the bonnet. 

At the front, the slim grille has been given touches of silver, while the large VW brand emblem rests at the centre of it. Flanking this on either side, the sharp headlamp clusters add to the aggressive image of the front. The lights have been included with dual beam light systems, and a black finish makes for a more crisp flavour in the design. 

The front skirt envelops a large air dam at the bottom, and a thin chrome garnish runs across the top of the air dam, a design mark that we thought fuelled some energy into the picture. 

The company places its distinguishing touch with the wide bonnet, which slopes down from the windscreen gently. The pronounced body lines that run across the hood add to the dynamic image of the front. 

As we gazed at the vehicle's side profile, we felt a pulse of sportiness sewn into the image. The elegant layout of the model evokes the younger spirit in you, while the refined curvatures add to the vibrant persona. The skin flowing out of the front wraps over the strong wheel archs, making for a more prominent look. 

Meanwhile, the 15 inch 'Estrada' alloy wheels strike a more powerful demeanour, and we know for one that younger audiences would love this feature. 

The serene body lines that sweep through the door-side also add a great element to the design. The heftier proportion of the rear, and the squarish headlamps together add a more vitalised look to the rear, and the effect is topped off with the company marquee at the centre of the tail-gate. 


The interiors are neither too cramped nor too spacious, but if you're looking for a far-fetched luxurious allure, then the cabin would disappoint. The new version comes with some minor features that strengthen the ride condition. The front row provides good legroom, and taller members of our team had nothing to complain about. The rear could use some more, in our opinion. 

The dual tone colour scheme energises the inner atmosphere, and it definitely had our approval. At the centre of the dashboard, the centre console comes with a piano black finish that looks great. 

Pair of air conditioning ducts are present at the top of the console. This model edition comes with an all-new dynamic touch-screen Infotainment system, sure to delight you if you are looking for some quality in-cabin entertainment. Also included is an all new mirror link connectivity, which allows you to integrate your smart-phone into the system, so that the screen of the phone is showcased in car's display. 

At the bottom is a climatronic air conditioning system that comes along with a thin display. A large storage space opens out below the console, where you could probably keep your phone and other spare items. 

At the right hand corner, the flat-bottom steering wheel is leather dressed, and the chrome accents add another opulent touch to it. We enjoyed the hold of the wheel, and its grip was also suitable. The controls to the audio system have been mounted on the wheel, adding to the ease of functioning. 

The instrument cluster is aligned right in front of the steering wheel, and this reduces strain for the man behind the wheel when viewing the dials. The cluster houses a speedometer, a tachometer and an MID that displays instant and average consumption, distance to empty, countdown to next service, average speed etc. 

A new feature for this edition is an auto dimming interior rear view mirror, which boosts ease of working and convenience for the driver. Coming to the seating arrangement, you're sure to be freed from discomfort with the ergonomic seats that come along with headrests. 

The fabric upholstery isn't going to make or break your ride experience, but it is passable. Aside from this, there are many other convenience oriented features such as a cooled glove box, door-side stowage areas, ambient lights, cruise control, USB and Aux-In facilities and an SD card input. 



There are no changes to the inner mechanics of the vehicle. For the diesel trim, there is the same 1.5-litre TDI engine which displaces 1498cc. It is composed of 4 in-line cylinders, and is coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission for efficient working. Its specifications are decent, with a power of 104bhp at 4400rpm, coupled with a torque of 250Nm at 1500rpm to 2500rpm. The drive was smooth, we have to say, with no significant flaws with the working of the engine. Sprinting capacity was solid and shifting was eased. 


For the petrol variant, there is the same 1.2-litre TSI engine which comes along with 4 in-line cylinders. Its figures are considerably weak, with a displacement that lags behind at 1197cc. Power remains unchanged at 104bhp at 5000rpm, while torque is boosted to 175Nm at 1500rpm to 4100rpm. For this mill, there is a 7-speed DSG gearbox which makes shifting easy and smooth.

Ride and Handling:

The vehicle's chassis and braking systems remain the same. The front arm of the chassis has been armed with a McPherson strut, while a stabiliser bar further solidifies control. Meanwhile, the rear arm has been rigged with a semi independent trailing arm. We thought that the overall ride quality was splendid, but you're not going to be spared the hassle of occasional jerks and bumps. There is minimal body roll, and the smooth inertial flow at high speeds is sure to drown out all minor discomforts. Cornering and braking is also a relatively clean affair, and you're sure to sense the efficiency of the discs/drum combination that affirms the braking system. The electronic power steering adds to the lightened handling, although we did feel that the steering response could have been a notch or two better. 


We felt that the safety parameters with the earlier version could have been touched up slightly. The company seems to have addressed this area with this new edition. New features that bolster security include an rain sensor and an auto dimming interior mirror. ABS and EBD boost safety from the techno front. Veering off the conventional path, the brand has introduced some other aid programs as well, including electronic stabilisation program and hill-hold control. The front fog lamps come along with cornering lamps, improving the safety quality when driving. Also present are dual airbags, rear parking sensors, electrically adjustable and foldable outside mirrors and a multi-function display that presents vital statistics about the drive. 


There are only two variants, GT TDI and GT TSI. The first comes with the 1.5-litre Diesel engine, while the latter gets the 1.2-litre Petrol engine. Both of the trims are evenly matched in features, with only a few select differences. As for the GT TDI, there is a cruise control, cooled glove box, CD/MP3 player that comes along with USB and Aux-In, Bluetooth connectivity. Meanwhile, the GT TSI comes with just two additional functions, namely the electronic stabilisation program and the hill hold control. If you're looking to decide which variant to pick, we'd suggest that you decide on the lines of the engine format, rather than the features.


We've got to hand it to the car, it does make a pretty strong statement. It begins by roping you in with the awesome exteriors, and then soothes you with the stylish, comfortable interiors. The updates to the new version also level up the overall score, including the Infotainment and Miror-Link system together with already existing comfort features. Handling is also good, and the overall drive experience does not disappoint. Flaws emerge from the limited cabin space, the mediocre performance and the lack of a reliable service presence in the country. The Polo is definitely a charmer for youngsters, and people looking for a hip vehicle with a modern taste. But for those who can't compromise, and need the best of everything, we'd recommend another model for you.
