BHP (Break Horsepower) is a unit which indicates the power produced by a car's engine. The math is simple, More the BHP, better the power. Now talking about VW POLO and AMEO, yes, they do produce lesser power in comparison to other cars in the same segment but still they are remarkable. The cars provide a good torque with on a lesser RPM.

Similarly, the cylinders also share the same relationship. More the number of cylinders, more is the power but on the cost of fuel efficiency. On the other hand, less the number of cylinders, better is the fuel efficiency and torque.

If it is particularly about power and torque, Volkswagen cars are decent. However, there are other options available which might offer you peppier engines but on the cost of fuel efficiency. Hence, it is a fair deal to go with Volkswagen.
