Pros : Stylish looks, awesome performance, class interiors and fuel economy

Cons : Rear seat is at a low height

Look and Style I have always been a fan of Volkwagen. Recently I bought my Volkswagen Polo Highline Petrol 1.2 litre and I am impressed with its stylish and class looks which make this car different from other cars of the same category. I have driven all the cars of the same segment but the looks of Polo and Swift attracted me the most but I opted for Polo because of its powerful engine in comparison to other brands. Comfort From the comfort point of view, the car is decent but what I personally felt was that the rear seats were too low compared to other cars in the same segment. If the rear seats were raised slightly, it would have got the 5 on 5 star ratings. The rear seat is the only area where I find the car lacks in the comfort department . The driver and co-driver seats are more comfortable in comparison to the rear passengers. The car has got ample of leg room and three passengers can easily sit on the rear seat. Pickup Pick up and acceleration are the key areas of the car's performance and I appreciate the German technology for boosting the car with a powerful engine and fantastic pick up. Mileage Mileage is decent. I am getting around 12 km/l in city conditions and around 16-17 km/l on highways. I think the car's mileage is economical in comparison to its competing car skoda fabia 1.2 litre petrol , though both cars are of volkswagen group. Best Features Adjustable headlights, Rear window Defogger, Alloy wheels, Fanastic audio system, Keyless Entry ABS and Side-front Impact Beams. Needs to improve Rear Seats and more features can be added to make it more competing and appealing. Overall Experience Experience with the Polo, so far has been pleasureable and exciting. Its been around 3 months since I have bought the car and I am quite happy with the car's performance. I would advice this car to all those people who look for a powerful engine with decent mileage and performance.

    Indica is the best fit for you, in terms of height

    I agree to the nizam as i too had taken a test drive of the car. The looks of the car its finishing and quality is good but while driveing my legs were getting stuck, as i am 5.10` i feel the car should have build on a higher platform. Waiting period is too long 3-4 months and as we can see indian car market is growing so fast that many new cars will cum in this period once from VW only GOLF
