Ajay's review on Volkswagen Polo GTI 1.8 TSI
Year of Manufacture : 2016 | Driven no. of Kms. : 1826
- Pros: Volkswagen Polo GTI is everything about speed and drift. Not everyone cup of tea, it is made for high adrenaline junkies who love to play fire with fire. I absolutely love the 3-door design and the amount of thrill it offers. The 190bhp power, itself, says everything.
- Cons: The Volkswagen Polo GTI is priced around Rs. 28-29 Lakhs (on-road, Delhi) and hence, it is not made for everyone. The price rules it out of equation for every speed lover as one has to be rich enough to own it. Moreover, the mileage too isnot much encouraging. The ground clearance is also quite low, which makes it non-suitable for muddy and uneven terrains.
Volkswagen Polo GTI had been on my wishlist for the past couple or so years. I finally got the chance to drive one when the company finally launched it three months back. It was fantastic, as soon as I put my foot on throttle, it went BANG. I havenot driven such a brisk beast before, so, in a sense, it was a bit scary too to control it. But overall, it was fun to drive it around the corners and drift.
