When Volkswagen family first introduced POLO in India, I was really worried since the prices were high considering what polo offered back then. Also, Indian buyers would prefer a sedan over a hatchback at such prices. But with time, the polo has evolved enough to rival against the Hyundai Elite i20, the maruti suzuki Swift, the fiat Punto and some other cars in this segment.

Exteriors: Although the polo isn't as devilish as the old one, the new cuts on doors n shoulder line makes the look more sporty. Dark Grey strip with vw emblem added appeal to the front grill. Tapering headlamps look better than ever. Somehow wheels appear smaller while considering the overall appearance. Overall 5 stars out of 5 for its looks.

Interiors: Dashboard of the new polo doesn't impress much. All common features that are needed in a dashboard are there. Steering mounted controls are also available. Everything is there what you need inside a cabin. Also, the feel of the dashboard material feels a high quality and speakers are also of good quality they have a very good bass and vocal.

Space: 4 people can comfortably travel. The back seat is not at all comfortable. They need to improve legroom and even a person with 6ft of height cannot feel comfortable. It also offers massive boot space without folding the backseat. Practically 3 big suitcases could be easily fitted in the boot. But who cares its more like a sports car than a family wagon.

Drive quality: Here where you get mixed feelings about the performance. The polo offers you a feel of a sporty ride and luxury car. It is somewhere in between. The engine is very smooth and very powerful. At higher RPMs the ride is pretty smooth. People who like pickup like that of the Swift, won't appreciate the polo. But it pick up in higher gear is next to awesome and it also offers better handling at turns and twists than both the Swift and the I20. The body never feels shaky even in high speeds like 170 km/hr. Also at high speeds, braking feels confident .The handling of Volkswagen polo is superB and excellent.

Final verdict: The Volkswagen polo has nothing more to offer than any other competitors in its segment. But definitely, its looks are different than a conventional premium hatchbacks. It has got good performance, accessory features, good looks along with the reasonably high price. Still if one wants a different hatch, one should go for it and trust this as it carries Volkswagen name. If concerned about the price, then well... you haven't got better options! you will never get this type of power and comfort in any of its rival.

That's all i have to say about this car.
