Volkswagen unveiled the Polo at the Expo in Delhi earlier year, the Polo has already much attention among car and a lot of people who have been at purchasing a hatchback have put decisions on hold in anticipation of ‘little’ VW.


The Polo is a very handsome looking car and a VW. Granted, it doesn’t have the design flair and pizzazz as of the more recent entrants the Grande Punto or the rather styled i20. However, in German fashion, it is rather looking and has just that balance of sportiness without overly yuppie in its demeanour.The has a very aggressively chiselled end, with smart which really sweep around the front fenders to with the slim grille. The big VW badge sits in the centre of the and the two chromed horizontal slats do add a bit of to the front of the car. Also to the sharp looking front is the cut chin and front bumper houses a pair of neatly fog lamps, which are standard on the Highline variant. Interestingly VW that the slightly smoked headlamps which are available on the worldwide may not go down well the Indian consumer’s psyche and with a shiny one instead.

The neatly styled tailgate the sporty spoiler looks and houses the third-brake light. The powered Polo carries a TDI on the rear and that’s about the distinguishing factor between the and diesel engined Polo’s. The has a boot that’s just a over two hundred and eighty but the fenders do intrude into the somewhat and rob it of some precious area. The Trendline features a down rear seat as the Comfortline and Highline feature a split rear seat may be more practical.


The will be available in three levels, namely the Trendline, and Highline. Common across all the is power steering with a and telescopic adjustment, manually side-view mirrors, HVAC, power windows (with an down), central locking, coloured bumpers, tachometer, immobilizer, chrome finished handles on the inside, prismatic mirror, tinted glasses, adjustable headrests for the front and and a fully folding rear (only on the Trendline).

The interior of the Polo is a two-tone You’ve got the top half of the dashboard in a (but hard) black and the bottom is beige and merges with the doorpad design. The interior does make the car far more airy on the inside a grey one might, but it is going to constant attention to keep it spotless. The chrome finished release handle adds a upmarket touch to the doorpad

If you’ve been in Skoda’s or VW’s before you’ll right at home in the Polo. are plenty of familiar looking Some of the stalks, buttons, come from the giant VW parts bin, which necessarily a bad thing, since all well made and have a quality feel about The knobs that control the on the air-con vents feel good to the touch and have a precise feel to their Little quality bits this can really go a long way in a car a well-made, quality feel.

Engine, Transmission:

Volkswagen Polo

The Polo with two engine options for and both are 75bhp, 3 cylinder, 1.2 engines! The petrol is 1198cc an output of 75bhp @ 5400 rpm and out 110Nm of torque @3750 The diesel is a 1199cc commonrail which churns out 75bhp @ rpm and a useful torque figure of just 2000 rpm. also interestingly a 1.6 petrol which is listed on the VW website produces just a shade 100bhp, but VW state that won’t be launching this soon. That would make this Polo, sporty.

Both the 1.2litre are mated to a five-speed manual which VW says is the same but because of the different final ratios and the way each of these produce their power, the really do feel quite when you drive them. VW that there’s going to be no for a while at least, so it’s the 5-speed manual for now. this new 1.2 diesel engine we’ve got here will in Europe later this

Driving Dynamics:

Most cars are known for their and handling and we have always quite a fan of the way the VW group cars and handle. Comfortable through bad surefooted and safe at speed and neutral and safe at the limit. The is no different from its other and distant cousins, in this The Polo sports struts in the and a torsion beam with gas at the rear. The suspension setup was tweaked for our road conditions and the clearance upped by 50mm and the car now has a clearance of 168mm. The car has a slightly ride at low speeds, but the ride at speeds is excellent and the car feels composed even when out by really bad patches or mid-corner The Polo’s suspension really has tweaked to strike a perfect between firmness and agility. The on the Polo felt progressive and meaty with enough power. The Polo uses upfront and drums at the rear and the Highline trim gets We’ll know just how they are when we put it to our braking in a short while.

The engineers designed the Polo for the Polo which really says it The kind of stress racing can put on a has ensured that the Polo’s is engineered for so much more what it will be subjected to. The is absolutely brilliant and even on twisty patches the tyres on our were giving up well what this chassis is capable of. The Polo has electro-mechanical for the steering, which weighs up with increase in speed and has the right amount of feedback through to your fingers on the wheel. The one noticeable area really needs improvement is the tyre noise that through at even moderate and this somewhat breaks the of the cabin. There is a drone at on concrete patches and this is a since no doubt VW, like all manufacturers would have hard on keeping NVH to a minimum.

Overall Evaluation:

The Polo is a brilliantly made quality-hatchback a legendary badge. It has a lot of things in its favour. Great build a fantastic 6 years Anti Warranty, excellent ride and package, brilliant chassis and a badge which really that you’re a cut above the That said, we feel the is a tad high vis-à-vis the features it in. At 4.34 — 5.72 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the petrol and — 6.70 Lakh Delhi), one really wishes VW would reconsider their for the diesel, which will no see fair numbers. There’s the issue of rear legroom for passengers, which is a significant since this is one segment really wants it all! And the cost of ownership which VW will be competitive when prices are announced next
