Pros : Good European Look, Great style

Cons : Price is higher side

If we see the price of Polo (On Road) Bangalore Rs 5,32,000 for Trednline variant, I feel this is really higher side compare to other car (eg Swift, i20, Punto, Figo). Trendline is base variant with power steering, front power window and AC. Where as Figo sells at Rs 4,12,946, Swift Rs 4,66,556. Punto Rs 5,05,000. Where as i20 base model sells at Rs 5,76,355 and you will get lot of feature like all four power window, stilt steering, 2din music system with a/c controller in steering. To get some of these features you need to sell out more money and need to go for next variant which will cost you Rs 592000 for Petrol. Next variant of polo wont get all features which has in i20 base variant. So you need to spend another 50K to own this car for with most of the feature which i20 base variant has. Car has great European look and style. There is not much change from previous version which we saw on road in Europe. It has enough boot space for week end outings. Punto also has enough boot space Where as Swift, FIGO are loosing battle in terms of boot space. But power wise polo struggles little bit. Polo has 75BHP, where as i20 has 85. Where as on other hand Punto (1.2 active) 67, FIGO 71, Swift 85. Overall i20 has having edge over other car in terms of Cost, Features, Power. Very close to i20 is Swift. If you are a die hard fan of Polo, then simply go for it. After all it is a European car which has lot of past history and sentiment.

    Are you a hyundai fanboy, as I can see you are making claims which even Hyundai would deny. Hyundai i20 Kappa delivers 79 BHP. Polo comes with tilt/telescope steering in all versions. The build quality is miles ahead in Polo compared to i20. Ford figo has 284 litre boot space, so it is not small. The price point i would accept Polo is on higher side on base vairant, but if you compare the top variant Polo is cheaper than Punto 1.4 E and i20 Asta with 2 airbags.
