Pros : Good looking and show off.....

Cons : bad performance..

Look and Style : Looks are good no doubt about it. Comfort : Comfort is also better for diesel engine but vibrations in the petrol engine.. Pickup : Worst and the most disgusting pickup......delay of pickup after the accelerator Mileage : Haven't experienced the mileage personally but expecting that it might be good. Best Features : Only looks.. Needs to improve : Of course.....needs to improve the torque...very poor performance.... Overall Experience : WAS EXPECTING THE BEST SERVICE FROM VOLKSWAGEN BUT I FAILED....I WAS IMPRESSED BY THE LOOKS AND ADVERTISING STYLE BUT WHEN I TOOK A TEST DRIVE, I WAS DISAPPOINTED. I DROVE BOTH DIESEL AND THE PETROL ENGINE, BUT IN THE DIESEL ENGINE THE COMFORT IS BETTER BUT A HUGE PICKUP DELAY...WHEN I TRIED THE PETROL ENGINE THE DELAY OF PICKUP WAS A BIT REDUCED BUT THERE WERE VIBRATIONS IN THE CAR.......NO SATISFACTORY ANSWER FOR THIS PROBLEM.... HOPING THAT MANAGEMENT WILL TAKE CORRECTIVE STEPS.........

    Can you be little more clear about the word bad performance?

  • Pradeep |02 Oct,2010 11:55:53 AM

    He's just here for criticizing this car... May be works for sum rival company..! lol I dont really understand what he wants to say - Diesel engine the comfort is better? Nd petrol not..? What are you talking about? Comfort? U sit in the engine or inside the box of the car..? Anyways, totally mis leading review... Do not trust this guy, whosoever he/she may be.. Thankz!

  • PURANIK |02 Oct,2010 12:45:54 PM

    hey do u work for this company or u have a problem with me........this is the worst car.....the company themselves accepts that there is a problem in the pickup due to three cylinder engine.....do you have this car????? if yes you are the biggest fool..........Thankz!!

  • Pradeep |02 Oct,2010 02:03:40 PM

    Chuck his guys, this guy is a total maniac! He thinks 3 cylinder cars are useless..? Lol, and hence I see ALTO selling like hot cakes..? Yes, Im expecting my car in a weeks time. Ive got my friends who own this car and completely satisfied with the car and interiors... Remember, INDIA's FIRST PREMIUM HATCHBACK was a 3 cylinder as well..? Its not the mileage we look always like you are doing - Soo basically, you would be suited best with the Japanese cars rather then poking your head in the German Stables... If you cant afford one, better shut up!

    i have recently made a tharough research on polo. unfortunately i could not go for a test drive.... only think is the other cars of its kind like ford FIGO, maruthi SWIFT hundai I20 etc. are with 4 cylinder and only POLO is with 3 cylinder......technically i am not very clear..is it anything to do with performance, pick up etc., any one can help me........

  • jebax |15 Oct,2010 01:57:33 AM

    I have polo petrol comfort line the car drives well, petrol acceleration is good, slightly poor milage. the bit about engine vibrations is also true. But the overall experience is very good, the drive, comfort inside the vehicle, ground clearance etc. I would recommend this car jebax

    Hi Guys, I am looking to buy a car but I am in a fix b/w polo Diesel n Swift Diesel.Price is not the issue,cuz both r more or less the same,the difference being only 20-30k...thats acceptable.My main points of concern are : 1) Is Polo more comfortable than Swift? 2) Wat abt the average of both the cars? 3) Wat are the servicing charges for both the cars.....n the time difference b/w two services. 4) Wat abt the service centres....I live in New Delhi. 5) Polo doesnt have power windows for the rear seats....so thats a turn-off. 6) What abt the brand.....which one's better? 7) N wat abt this 3 cylinder,4 cylinder thing?Wats the diffrence? I am really very confused.....Pradeep,Puranik,Chaitanya.....or any one else......a slight help wd be vry useful.....cuz it looks like u guys hv done some research over all this. Thanks in Advance......Cheerz

    Hi, i have bought this car just 2 months back.Before buying this car i have taken the test drive of almost all the cars which is come under 3.5 to 5 lacks & in all car i found the best option is POLO only. Superb pick up. Safety first & always The first service come after 15000kms of run(Instead in Swift every 2500) The powerful AC gives the driving pleasant at all. If you want to buy premium Hatch Back, go for POLO only. Thanks

  • Saurabh |24 Oct,2010 10:31:48 AM

    Hi Pravin.....thanx a lot for the input.Just wanted to know if u r 100% sure abt this 15000 vs 2500 kms servicing thing......is this the time duration for the first service only or the entire thing. Also....i've heard that Polo wd alwys be heavy on ur pocket as compared to swift given that its VolksWagen. My mind tells me to go 4 swift......bt my heart tells me its gonna b Polo....cuz thats much more stylish than swift n I've also heard its much more comfortable too.Really.....am in a fix!!!

    sriram |10 Dec,2010 08:04:51 PM

    Polo is best among all... Its maintenance cost will be 10% to 15% more than Swift/i20.... If budget is not a problem, then go for highline which is bit more costly than Swift. But i20 is even costlier. But i20 is a plastic made vehicle with poor quality. Even the paint itself low quality. You will have lot of features in car without quality. I will get my polo 1.2L trendline petrol in 3 days..

    sriram |10 Dec,2010 08:07:36 PM

    When i booked the car in September, there was 40 dealers. Now 61 dealers are available across india. So do not worry about the dealer & Service.... For a bumber in swift, you need t pay 4000 rupess. For polo, it is 4500 rupees... Ofcourse with the body coloured with quality material than Swift... I can not explain about the Engine becasue this is my first Car.. So i am not a drive expert...

    PURANIK |10 Nov,2010 06:28:01 PM

    I peronally think dat you should go for i10 or i20 coz it is a more popular brand....if u r using your car in da city, polo is good as you have service stations in pune n other big cities but da service stations are less in small cities...agreed dat i20 is a bit costly but dat is an excellent car...i myself purchased i20 on 1st Nov but neways i10 is also good....
