This is the best styled premium hatch. Great seating, super ergonomics, typical Volkswagen controls including smooth stick shift, nothing to complain aboutcco/Passat) and this one matches those in pleasure to look at.Exterior The more you look at it, the more you love and like it. The lights, grill, the sarky skirt at the down of the front bumper. Allround the car speaks volumes in terms of class & quality. I had this car since May 10 and still haven't got bored of looking at it. It stands out among the other car options available here that look like mutated lumps(swift) or petrified(ritz) or too sleepy to move. Park it next to any other car in its segment & you will almost see the other car cowering. Downside though is that Volkswagen only has a wiring setup for 2 speakers in the front door(they must have thought senior citizens were their only target market) and the dealer will try conning you by saying only ken wood systems work on the polo & if you try adding more speakers warranty will be affected. Thankfully a friend of mine in the car accessories business helped out; I've got a philips head unit(with blue tooth, USB, etc) 6 speaker setup, ken wood amp & CV 12" sub & it sounds GOOD! The boot was designed produce bass i think.Getting power out of the engine takes a little practice-the car flies if you hold it around 3500-5500 rpm. Fuel economy I haven't figured out properly as yet; one time i got about 14 kmpl in town.Tested other cars in this segment- NONE compare(even the fabia that runs of the same chassis, engine, etc etc sucks in comparison).
