Hi , All I am new in this forum. and I want to buy a car and i visit volkswagen showroom for polo trendline model.At the same time i also found two more cars i.e. ford figo and fiat punto, and maruti swift. I want to know whether which will be the better among four.Please send me an unbiased opinion so that I can go for a perfect one. Regarding volkswagen I found some reviews where it is mentioned that the engine is underpowered and the engine consists of 3 cylinders but ford figo and punto have 4 cylinder engine , so please tell me that which one be the perfect one in this segment.and what is the difference between 3 cylinder and 4 cylinder engine and what is pros and cons

    Hi, I was also in the same situation where you are now. I have spent 3 months for the hatch back car selection. I can not suggest you a car based on its performance of engine because i not yet owned any car and i am new for car driving. Ford Figo is cheaper than all the other 3 models. Ford Figo diesel is better choice in Ford Figo. If you look for Petrol, then Swift VXI or ZXI are the best (interms of cost, maintanance

    Hi, I was also in the same situation where you are now. I have spent 3 months for the hatch back car selection. I can not suggest you a car based on its performance of engine because i not yet owned any car and i am new for car driving. Ford Figo is cheaper than all the other 3 models. Ford Figo diesel is better choice in Ford Figo. If you look for Petrol, then Swift VXI or ZXI are the best (interms of cost, maintanance/service). Fiat Punto is the worst of all. Since swift is very old model (but ever green), I decided to go for Polo. If you see swift and polo, obviously your mind will follow VW Polo, not the swift. If you want powerful engine, swift is better. But it is until VW launched 1.6L petrol highline which costs 7.1 LAcks with 1598 CC. The Powerful hatch available in india. I see some of 1.6 Liter Petrol Highline last week in VW Showroom and booking already started. So decide between Swift and Polo. Take a test drive and decide. Since i am still a Learner in driving, i didn't take a test drive. Instead i have traveled 4Kms in Polo and i felt very comfortable. The comparable models. Swift VXI or Polo petrol Trendline/comfortline or Swift ZXI or Polo 1.2L/1.6L petrol Highline Keep update your plans. Regards, Sriram M

    @ Jisnu: First you decide what you would like. A mass car like Swift, every 5th car you see on road is a Swift. If you plan for Figo, its a good deal but then you will not get the feel of a luxurious drive. Remember Ford is better in Diesel version. If you dont drive much do not go for Diesel Enginer. Punto is good however now you need to decide wether you like black interiors or Beige. Punto has black interiors. Polo has beige with black

  • Rajyavardhan |06 Sep,2010 03:50:38 PM

    contd..... Polo has beige with black and beige, dual color dashboard. The glove box is spacious. The 3 pot engines are louder than 4 but Polo has the best insulation in its segment and you will hear no noise or vibration inside. The gear and steering are the smoothest in all hatch backs. You'll love driving it. My opinion is pro Polo coz I own one and am truely satisfied with its performance. Its a head turner on the road. Volkswagen is a brand you can rely on. I'll suggest you to go for Polo. Take a test drive of all cars you are considering. You'll make a decision yourself

    Agreed with Mr.Rajyavardhan even I own a POLO and I think you should go for it!

  • jishnu |07 Sep,2010 08:44:07 AM

    Thanks for the comment Mr Rajyavardhan.Just tell whether they are able to give good service

    It is not the number of cylinders that matter. It matters how much each cylinder is powerful. It also matters whether you can get service in every part of the country. If there is a breakdown, can you take the vehicle every time to Delhi, Mumbai or Bangalore

    Hi, everyone! recently i have been going through the reviews of several consumers regarding the suggestions whether to buy which hatchback choosing between polo,punto, figo or swift.I feel all these brands equaully competent in their own manner.As far as the durability of its engine ,suspension and safety is concern any day punto is by far has an edge over all its competitors.Its a tough car.I may be biased but for those who look for safety with comfort they should go for punto without doubt.

    which hatch is good, i20 or polo?

  • ankit |31 Oct,2010 11:37:58 PM

    Hi frds - I am planning to buy a hatchback & my search has ended me with two options i.e. i20 & Polo. The only factor of i20 which is bothering me is it's mileage. Polo is also having very long delivery time(More than 3 months). Can someone suggest me which of these is best. Please also enlighten me about maintenance factor of these cars.
