Volkswagen POLO the safest car of Idia
Polo is fantastic. Owning a POLO diesel, i can tell you the happiness of driving is simply unmatched and it is the safest car. Pros: High speed stability. Car never felt nervous or strained even at 150+ Sharp handling, corners can be conquered easily. The solid fit and finish , from the dashboard panels, switches, to the thud while closing the boot or heavy doors , you would feel the quality everywhere , built like a castle to last. Looks are subjective, but the new smoked dual barrel head lamps and the classy lines, looks slowly gets on and you will fall in love as you spend more time. TDI Engine is a gem, does duty in VW Vento, skoda Rapid as well in different states of tune which makes it easy to remap to deliver higher power and torque which the polo chassis can handle. Torque must be the highlight of all VW TDI engines , polo is no different ,it pulls easily from halt in 2 nd gear with 4 people. 230NM torque in a hatch is good enough to give sedans run for there money. So overtaking is easy , just maintain the rev above 1400 and you can see the power of this marvelous engine. Its pulls effortlessly and no turbo lag. Minimalistic German design , and every thing at reach, never had to stretch. Noise insulation is good with all windows rolled up. Headlight throw is good, never felt inadequate on highways or city. Rear fog lamp is a very good feature , handy and safe in highways. To get a feel of platics quality used, knock the dashboard with knuckles below the front glass or any where, you can see the difference in sound it makes, a solid knock compared to swift, Honda amaze or others. No rubber damping on roof railing, and no gap lines running around the doors like you can observe in swift, it has a very clean side profile and flowing design to the tail lamp is very sporty. Boot lid is classy , the VW badge is the boot handle. Claimed figure by VW is 20.1 kmpl but it will give you around 15 kmpl. Safety is best and comes with 2 front airbags. Cons: Engine noise is high compared to counterparts, not something that worries me but is so evident as soon you start the engine. Service cost is high compared to other premium hatches of same segment The boot has no lights, becomes difficult to search for things, a portable torch is must. Second to third gear slot needs some getting used to it. Legroom for tall person is not good, but I am 5'8 and I can sit comfortably at rear bench. Not a 5 seater, good enough for 4. I would recommend polo. It connects to the driver like no other hatch I have driven in the same league. It has all the necessary features and to sum it up - A solid, premium, fast, and a safe German hatch. Other cars in my list were the following and why I did not go : 1. Punto evo : no proper after sales service. 2. i20 : nice but looks outdated in an year only. I did not like the highway manners, not confidence inspiring when pushed, so its more of a city car and is not fun to drive. 3.Swift : Too common, quality , safety is no where near polo. Very good bucket seats at front , Great engine and gear box, but never felt like owning one 4. Baleno: Driving comfort is not that good. 5. Jazz: leg space is not properly divided and does not deliver what is written on paper.
