Pros : Fine interiors, Sufficient leg room, Good mileage and Excellent performance.

Cons : Engine noise and Poor service network


Look and Style Hello friends, I am Anurag from Ghaziabad, I bought Volkswagen Polo Highline last year. I would say that the looks of the car are stunning and graceful. Both front and rear bumpers are very attractive. VW logo on the front bumper grills gives it a luxury appearance. Comfort Volkswagen Polo is bestowed with excellent comfort levels. Driver and co-driver seat has sufficient leg-room space and the height adjustable feature of the car makes the driving & handling easier. The rear seat of the Polo can accommodate 3 passengers and has ample of leg-room space. Also the height of the car  is sufficient. Pickup Volkswagen Polo the German engineering product is equipped with 1.2 liter powerful engine. Pick up of Volkswagen Polo is excellent and road burning. While driving at a speed of 120 plus, the car maintains its road grip. Mileage Mileage of Volkswagen Polo 1.2 petrol is admirable. The mileage of the car is 13-14 kmpl in city conditions and 15-16   kmpl on highways. Fuel efficiency of Volkswagen Polo is much better than Skoda Fabia. Best Features Volkswagen Polo is blessed with many exciting features like height adjustable driver's seat, adjustable and telescopic steering column, powerful air conditioner, comfortable seats, Digital Odometer, powerful braking and audio system with front and rear speakers. Needs to improve I think the servicing cost of the car should be brought down else the company would not be able to compete with brands like Maruti and Hyundai. More features can be added to make it distinct and exciting hatchback. Overall Experience So far the experience with Volkswagen Polo has been fantastic. I am pleased with its excellent performance fuel efficiency, the key factor for purchasing Polo is its power with excellent fuel efficiency and attractive sporty looks.

    Hi Anurag, thanks for your review.. I own a VW Polo 1.2L trendline petrol. Its awesome car. Engine performance & Pick up is superb. (Better than Swift).. All Fiat Punto, Swift, i20 car owners who were criticizing 3-cylinder engine of Polo must test drive it and regret for their critics.... I am getting 13 KMPL in city and 16/17 in highways... I just love my great car... But VW needs to come up with good & reasonable service setups & costs for their success in India....

    Who told polo pickup is well... It far behind swift and Ritz... No milage More sound and little legspace

    sriram |22 Feb,2011 12:06:57 PM

    I am telling Polo is having good pickup than swift. It is being accepted by many swift owners who are my colleagues... Go & test drive it... Mileage is also better in polo than swift.

    ARVINDHAN |22 Feb,2011 06:09:25 PM

    I also owns Polo Petrol... The engine is not in the league of Swift in terms of Pickup and Smoothness... Mileage I got is 16 kmpl.. Swift is better then Polo in terms Engine smoothness,pickup,Handling.....

    sriram |22 Feb,2011 07:04:54 PM

    Swift engine is better than Polo only in Papers... The actual performance is reverse. You can test drive it in highways... I have already done it and my conclusion is Polo is better. FYI, When you reduce your speed and gear up again, press the accelerator for 2 seconds and release again and press immediately and see the pickup. I got this info from VW Service Engineer and it works perfectly.. Great Pickup at highways after tollgates....

    I am going to buy a car of range between 5-5.5 lakhs. Can you please suggest which is the better option : polo, Fabia, swift and figo(all low end). Please give me the guidance.

    Rubesh S G |22 Feb,2011 11:30:14 AM

    Dear Mr. Nagaraj, Happy to hear your are planning buy a car, great. My suggestion is better you arrange a test drive to the above car's then you decide. I own a VW Polo Highline 1.2L petrol, nice car. While you test drive you can get idea regarding performance, leg space, ground clearance, safety features, handling, boot space, etc. I wish you all the best & God helps you to choose the correct one. Have a nice day, takecare, bye

    Dear User, Volkswagen Polo and Maruti Swift are better available option. Advantage of purchasing Volkswagen Polo can be its great fuel efficients, sufficient space and great fuel efficiency. On setback of the car its maintenance cost and service network. Maruti Swift is also a good car with good fuel efficiency, excellent service & dealership network and low maintenance cost. Thanks

  • F A KHAN |22 Feb,2011 12:20:01 PM

    I like it and wanted to have test drive. Staff at faridabed show room did not allow with a valid driving paper which has been issued by haryana licensing authority in place my driving licence ( VALID UPTO 27.02.11)it was required to be deposited for renewal as per rule. This is quite unfair and unjust and violation of rules of govt. Please make it convenient to give me chance of test drive/road test. Thanks

    the diesel that i test drove was having good pickup but the engine noise is just too much i noticed the tachometer which was showing 5000 rpm i dont know whether such gear ratios will work for a long time i think the engine is overstressd. rest everything is great with this car a three cyl engine gives you a feeling of incompleteness

    sriram |12 Apr,2011 12:33:31 PM

    How many times i can tell you to read the technical specification of Manual Speed Petrol/ Diesel Engines replacement relationship with no. of cylinders???????????.. First understand what in an engine & what does 3-cylinder & 4-cylinder engine differs....... The amount of BHP it generates does matters.... If you want, go for a race with Polo.. You can see which car wins... and which car gets more pickup....

  • Anuj |15 Mar,2011 01:13:00 AM

    HI.. pls advise reg servicability of Polo diesel. Is it as exp as fabia? tnx

  • Nik |28 Mar,2011 11:48:06 AM

    All cars are good every company do a lot of research on its products. But the thing is your preferences, you can not criticize any car. As per my expirience I found FIAT multiJet diesel Engine best in segment if we look for regular service and maintenance. I own a FIAT PUNTO & Swift both diesel. I test drived Polo found a bit sluggish and the service network is poor I have heard that they have 1 week waiting in servicing. I found both the cars are best, my swift has crossed 60000 Km and Punto crossed 23000 Kms. One thing I will admire about punto is looks and comfort. Also TATA has large service network I have around 7 service centers near by. For swift no introduction is required but I would say Maruti do not provide any luxury features in car which i have in my Punt's. I LOVE BOTH MY DIESEL MONSTERS, THEY ARE GREAT.

    Every car is good and it really depends on what do you want from your car. I have a swift and i really love the car but i would not try to say what is not right. swift might have good pick up but it definatly does not give you safe feeling over 90 km, so there you go, your pick up hardly matters. and if you are going to drive on a race track its a different thing but then why would you go for a swift or a punto, go for some big engine car. My friend has a punto an its superb but some how i don't find the driving very charming, though it feels safe in punto. its a very stable car. Then i have just drove a Polo and i feel what they have given you is superb. Its a very stable car and fuel efficient as well, Even at a speed of 120kmpl car will give you a very safe feeling. handling is superb. As far as i can understand we need a car to roam with our family or for work purposes so i guess the most important thing before you consider buying a car is safety. and among all three polo is number one in that criterion Punto is second and swift comes the last.

  • Mohit |17 Dec,2011 08:05:50 PM

    dear friends, i am planning to uy car and confused between polo and rits as the network of maruti and its maintenance is always very economical and range is also quite decent with the free 3 service whereas polo doesnot offer any free service so i fear that its maintenance is too high as compared so my dear friends please suggestz...
