Volkswagen Polo 1.0 isn’t the most exciting car revamp. While the new petrol variant brings exciting features to the table, it still lacks the true engine performance. It suffers from a slight delay during acceleration and the engine takes its sweet time to get moving. While cars from Maruti and Hyundai offer excellent performance with far more features, they come nowhere near the Volkswagen’s built quality. Still, there are hints of several cost cuttings to make it more affordable.
Volkswagen does try to reinvent the classic Polo for the growing automobile market. However, it fails to bring out anything new to the table. Yet, with the price of Rs. 26.5 Lakhs, Polo 1.0 is still a good long-term deal especially when you consider the low maintenance cost.
