Expert Test Drive Review

Volkswagen Polo Front View

The new Polo is a very fine example of how to move forward and yet not lose yourself in the crowd. Four years after it’s launch in India, VW has given their only small car in the country a face-lift. The New Polo is a mild face-lift from it’s predecessor.

VW has upgraded the headlamps, grille, fog lamps and front bumper. The profile is the same as before and the rear gets new bumper and tail lamps. .... read more

The rear design of the Polo is sporty and very modern looking. The rear bumpers are redesigned and also feature new design reflectors.

Side profile

The side profile is very European with strong and taut shoulder lines running from across the front to the rear.

Ground Clearance

The Polo has a ground clearance of 165mm.

Engine & Performance Details


Polo comes with 3 engine options in different variants. The 1198 cc Petrol engine produces 75 PS @ 5400RPM and the 1498cc Diesel engine produces 90PS @ 4200RPM and 105 PS @ 4400RPM in the GT TDI. There's also a 1197cc Petrol engine for the GT TSI that produces 105PS @ 5000RPM


The 1198 cc petrol produces 110Nm @ 3750RPM and the 1498cc diesel produces 230Nm @ 1500-2500RPM and 250Nm @ 1500-2500RPM in the Polo GT TDI. The 1197cc Petrol on the GT TSI produces 175Nm @ 1500-4100RPM

Petrol Mileage 16.47 kmpl

Diesel Mileage 20.14 kmpl

The petrol Polo returns an economy of 11kmpl in the city and the diesel about 16kmpl. VW after-sales are on the steep side especially the workshop cost (denting and painting).

The 15,000 km or one year service schedule is a blessing.

Polo not worth to possess
Posted on 21 Mar 10 at 6:12 am

Pros Great looks, good build quality, roomy

Cons poor engine pickup, noisy cabin, outdated engine, too costly

Infact I had lot of hopes on having a vw polo when I came to know about its production in chakan plant. I used to follow very carefully about the developments & launching of polo in india. I also booked the vehicle in jan 2010. I first saw the vehicle in first week of March at our dealer place & was really impressed with the vehicle. After a few days our dealer invited me for a test drive polo 1.2 highline. On driving the vehicle I was utterly dissapointed about the performance of the engine, engine noise level is pretty high then sitting in a ordinary tata indica diesel vehicle. I feel that the germans think that we are still outdated & continue to use primitive engine like 3 cyclinders which are still used in maruthi 800. The passion to have vw is a hypocratic idea which the german auto maker is making use of it. When there are lot of other companies providing excellent features in terms of performance, safety, effecient, economical & latest tecnologies that are introduced in the world market simultaneaously, I felt that paying such a huge amount for that car is not worth to buy. Dear readers I request you to have a test drive & come out with your opinions in this matter

Pros Looks Good

Cons Very Bad Sales and After Sales Service(low mileage)

One thing which I would like all people to know about Volkswagen Company is that Volkswagen is the worst car company in whole of India in terms of sales and after sales service as I had booked a polo and my whole experience with Volkswagen is like a nightmare.To my surprise Volkswagen dealer never responds back to any customer complaint and even the parent company I send so many mails but no reply.I had booked a Polo in 1st week of March in Moti Nagar showroom and I was told delivery date within 2 months but more then 3 months have passed and they are not even able to tell me the exact staus.The most surprising part is that if you people will open Volkswagen India website you cannot even find their email id where u can write to them and u have to find out from here and there the email id.To know my experience all are free to call me at my number in New Delhi at 9899127872

Pros good looks, great mileage

Cons nothing as such

best car you can have in india, actually maruti's bad day has started in 5 lakh why buy a japanese car when one can buy german hah, i drive it as test drive, actually my friend is a auto analyst and we test drive it for 4 hours, i decided to book silver colour one trendline model petrol, i find the engine is a bit noisy , but that's actually a sign of powerful engine, even you can run ac in first gear with no glitches like wagon r(presently having)and seats are more comfortable than swift, even i 20 so i truly appreciate the looks of this german car , after all germann are pioneers in car manufacturing and technology

Bad Car
Posted on 4 May 10 at 12:34 pm

Pros only looks and the VW logo

Cons Less leg room on rear, very low on mileage, poor back visibility

I bought Vw Polo last month as i was very excited. My excitement ended in the very second week, the car has very hard gear shift, bumpy rear seat, the leg room is very bad, the basic horns that come with the car are crap i had to get them retuned on the third day, they refused to replace them, i had to buy new ones my self. The steering wheel is quite tight and does't seem like one is driving a power steering. The worst part is the mileage. I have so far driver 9000+ and my Polo gives mere local average of 11km on diesel and on highway it goes up to 14 only. I spoke to the dealer in Karnal and they refuse to anything else than the free service. It was my worst decision to buy a Polo, now i want to sell it and buy either an i20 or the Maruti ritz. My VW charm has ended quite badly.
