Pros : Superb looks, comfort and style

Cons : Average fuel efficiency

Look and Style: All Volkswagen cars look distinct and Polo is no exception. Polo when it came revolutionsed the auto market, giving people such a brand they couldnt otherwise dream of owning. Comfort: Polo is a reasonably comfortable car but dont be too hopeful as the headroom and legroom is not that great. It shuts you out from the chaos outside and cools you down with its powerful AC. The feel you get sitting inside the car is great and an ultra luxurious one considering its just hatch. 5 people cannot however comfortably sit inside this the Polo. Pickup: The 1.2 L , 1198 cc engine does great thing to its pick up. The car goes from 0 to 100 kmph in 14.2 seconds. The maximum speed you can have in this VW Polo is162.9 kmph. Mileage: Mileage offered by Polo varies from 12 kmpl in the city and around 16 kmpl on the highway. So you can see that it does not have too much to offer in this department, especially when their are other hatchbacks in the market offering mileage much above this. This VW baby will put you in the petrol pump que often. Best Features: The best feature about this car is the brand name for starters. The dashboard is ergonomically designed. Its not over the top and very subtle. The look of the car also stands out from the rest. The seats are very comfortable too. Needs to improve: It needs to improve on the fuel efficiency. Yes. Good Mileage is something it lacks. It can also work on its headroom and legroom. A tall person wpuld feel cramped up in this car. Overall Experience: Overall experience has been average.

    I have bought VW polo basic version just 2months back, i agreed with the comment about the headroom & legroom but one can also see that the adjustable steering can give sufficient leg room.Regarding average i drive the car more than 1500kms in two months & has given 16kmpl inclusive city & highway driving. The look is superb & it's draw the attention of the people. All the family members of mine loves & pride for own it, specially my 12yrs son always play with it.
