Volkswagen Polo Overview

Volkswagen, the Wolfsburg based German auto-giant, has rolled out the refurbished Polo with quite a few substantial changes both inside and outside from its plant in Pune. The Polo has always been regarded as a smartly styled vehicle, owing to its European looks and solid build quality. Initially, launched in petrol and diesel versions with a revised power line, the TSi and TDi variants will return in the month of September, this time round more potent than before.
Volkswagen Polo Overview
As known, the company offers this hatchback in both petrol as well as diesel guises. Both the fuel trims have three similar variants - Trendline, Comfortline and Highline followed by the performance oriented TSI and TDI variants in petrol and diesel trims, respectively. Prices too have been revised, keeping existing market sentiments in mind. The exteriors have not undergone any major changes, they simply benefit from updated looks. On the other hand, the interiors benefit from a waft of changes, some of which are quite new and benefit customers with a lot of new stuff. The petrol variants are unchanged mechanically while the diesel ones gets a much stronger and powerful engine in place of the previous 3-cylinder noisy motor.

Volkswagen Polo Exterior

Exterior looks have not changed much, and the family identity is still very much there. At the front, the three-strip chrome grille has been replaced in favour of a single-slat chrome grille. The company has toned down the usage of chrome in and around the front grille, which makes it look bold and rugged. The hatchback boasts an all-new front bumper, which compliments well the aforementioned thick striped grille around the air dam. The headlamp cluster along with the twin fog lamps looks good, although disappointingly daytime-running lights (DRL) has been left out this time. The Polo also benefits from an all new set of alloys and body-coloured door handles. The design of the tail-lamp cluster has also been tweaked slightly. Every change done to the exteriors, as mentioned before, are very slight and will only be noticeable to the practiced eye. Else, they are minor – an oh, of course – a new colour Copper Orange is added to the prevailing shades of Candy White, Night Blue, Flash Red, Carbon Steel, and Reflex Silver.

Volkswagen Polo Interior

A number of new features have been added to make driving even more comfortable, and this includes new interior upholstery and finishes. The drivers' seat is now height adjustable for extended comfort and convenience. The steering wheel is all new, with a flat bottom to give it a sporty feel and with multi-function buttons on the top models. The top end versions also get a piano finish near the Bluetooth and voice command buttons – all adding a rich feel to the car. The dual tone dashboard is also premium looking along with the all-new centre console. There are silver coloured elements all around, instead of dreary black and they help liven up the interior. The instrument cluster consists of tachometer, speedometer, odometer and trip meter. The centre multi-function display, which was bright red in colour and sometimes jarring, has been replaced with a monochrome display which is much more soothing to the eyes. A trip computer however is only part of the top models.
Volkswagen Polo Interior
Like the predecessor, the Polo too has tons of space inside for the front cup holders, bottle holders and sunglass holders. The centre console also has a 12V power socket to charge your Smartphone and a parcel tray to keep it. Top versions come with a ‘Climatronic’ automatic air conditioning; with the base and mid-level variants having to suffice with manual HVAC with dust and pollen filter. In terms of entertainment, there is the stock sound with a CD/MP3 player with USB, Aux-in, SD card input and 4 Speakers. Again, the top-end ‘Highline’ variant gets Bluetooth connectivity for mobile phones and Voice Command (depending on mobile handset capability). Rear parking sensor is also part of the Highline variant, but lane-changing indicator is present across the range. The only disappointment is the legroom at the rear seats is still limited, and not much has been done in this regard.

Volkswagen Polo Engine & Transmission

As evident, Polo is being offered with petrol as well as diesel guise. However, the petrol avatar remains unchanged but the big change comes in the diesel engine powered variants. If talking about the petrol motor, the hatchback retains the 1.2-litre multi-point fuel injection engine, which did duty in the previous model. This 3-cylinder Inline, 1198 cc, mill develops a top power of 73.7 bhp at 5400 rpm and a peak torque of 110Nm at 3750 rpm. It is coupled to a traditional 5-speed manual gearbox in order to maximize performance and fuel efficiency. On the other hand, the diesel variants are now powered by an all-new 1.5-litre TDi engine instead of the old 1.2-litre motor. The company has basically revised its existing 1600 cc motor into a 1498 cc engine in order to fit the bill and enjoy the reduction in excise duty. This means Polo fans can now drive a much powerful hatchback as it delivers a maximum power output of 88.5 bhp at 4200 rpm and a peak torque of 230Nm at 2500-3500 rpm. Sadly, there are no automatic variants on offer in each of the fuel trims and like its petrol avatar, the Polo sticks to its conventional 5-speed manual transmission in the diesel version.

Volkswagen Polo Mileage

In the Indian car buying market, mileage is sometimes the single most important factor influencing decisions. Fortuitously, Volkswagen has fared decently in this compartment, at least with Polo. The Volkswagen Polo returns a mileage of 16.47kmpl and 20.14kmpl with petrol and diesel variants, respectively. Although, the numbers aren't that great in both the guises, if compared with the newer entrants like Celerio (petrol) & Grand i10 (diesel) but the power and performance is at par with them.

Volkswagen Polo Braking and Safety

European car manufacturers never skimp on safety, and this is more than evident in the Polo, which now comes with dual front airbags as standard. The braking system comprising of ventilated discs up front and drum in rear wark fairly effectively, and the Comfortline and Highline versions also get an Antilock Braking System (ABS). Additionally, there are 3-point front seat belts, 3-point rear outer seat belts, lap belt in the middle, speed-sensing auto door locks, fog lamps and many more features to ensure maximum safety of the occupants. To protect your precious investment, every Polo comes with an engine immobilizer and alarm with floating codes to make thefts difficult.

Volkswagen Polo Performance and Handling

The Polo is quite a bit of a drivers’ car, if such a term can be used here, The new leather strapped 3-spoke speed sensing electronic power steering makes handling effortless. The tilt and telescopic adjustable steering wheel is fairly light and responds instantly to the driver's directional inputs. The sporty flat-bottom steering wheel design enables an individual to maneuver the hatchback quite comfortably through narrow roads and thick traffic. Coming on to the performance, the Polo is fairly competent. The diesel variants of Polo are capable of accomplishing the 100-kmph milestone from standstill in a shade over 13 seconds while clocking a respectable 165-kmph top speed. The petrol is a fair bit slower to 100-kmph, while the top whack is around 150kmph. The front suspension comprises of McPherson struts with a stabilizer bar and the rear has a semi-independent trailing arm.

What do we think about Volkswagen Polo?

Well, it wouldn't be an exaggeration if it is termed the most complete hatchback ever seen in India in this price segment. With the best interior quality, powerful engine and aggressive pricing, it is a sheer delight to bring home.

Volkswagen Polo Competitors

This is quite a competitive segment and there are lots of cars in this segment to battle it out. Volkswagen Polo is at loggerheads with the Maruti Swift, Hyundai i20, Nissan Micra, Chevrolet Sail hatchback etc. while two debutantes in the form of all new Fiat Punto Evo and Tata Bolt are keenly awaited, and are likely to join this club by festive season. In all, it is survival-of-the-fittest kind of situation with each having its own specialty in the segment.
