i am very much interested to book a POLO comfort line. but some of my freinds advised with one technical issue. i.e. other similar car like maruti SWIFT, hundai I20 even ford FIGO are with 4 CYLINDER with much lesser price tag. POLO is with 3 CYLINDER even though with high price tag. of course price is not a concern but this 3 CYLINDER has anything concerned with its performance, pick up etc.. can i get some technical feed back.....on this....

Hey Kapil, Thank you for getting in touch with us. Yes, not having ABS can be a factor affecting the final decision. Going with your requirements and budget, you can also have a look at Maruti Baleno. This car comes with standard features like Dual Airbag, ABS and EBD. Rest, as per the performance, Volkwagen Polo is pretty good. You can have a look at the comparison by clicking here.

Volkswagen recommends Mobil 1 New life 0W-40 fully synthetic engine oil and it will cost you Rs. 5400 for 4-litre pack. While, if you go for a mineral engine oil, you can get it around Rs. 2000, but we will suggest you to go with the synthetic engine oil.
