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 adding to the sharp front is the crisply cut chin and bumper which houses a of neatly styled fog lamps, are standard on the loaded Highline Interestingly VW decided that the smoked effect headlamps are available on the Polo worldwide may not go well with the Indian psyche and went with a one instead.

The neatly styled with the sporty spoiler good and houses the third-brake The diesel powered Polo a TDI badge on the rear and that’s the only distinguishing factor the petrol and diesel engined The Polo has a boot that’s a shade over two hundred and litres, but the fenders do intrude the boot somewhat and rob it of some stowage area.

The Trendline a full-fold down rear where as the Comfortline and Highline a 60:40 split rear which may be more practical.


The Polo will be in three trim levels, the Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. across all the variants is power with a tilt and telescopic manually adjustable side-view HVAC, front power (with an Auto down), locking, body coloured tachometer, engine immobilizer, finished door handles on the prismatic rear-view mirror, glasses, height adjustable for the front and rear and a fully rear seat (only on the

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.


The Polo comes two engine options for now, and are 75bhp, 3 cylinder, 1.2 litre The petrol is 1198cc with an of 75bhp @ 5400 rpm and churns out of torque @3750 rpm. The is a 1199cc commonrail turbo-diesel churns out 75bhp @ 4200 rpm and a torque figure of 180Nm@ 2000 rpm.

There’s interestingly a 1.6 petrol engine is listed on the VW website which just a shade over but VW state that they be launching this anytime That would really this Polo, truly

Both the 1.2litre engines are to a five-speed manual gearbox, VW says is the same ‘box, but of the different final drive and the way each of these engines their power, the car’s do feel quite different you drive them. VW says there’s going to be no auto-box for a at least, so it’s just the manual for now. Incidentally, new 1.2 diesel engine that got here will debut in later this year.

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
