Verdict
 
The Volkswagen New Polo has a sophisticated exterior, luxurious interior design, advanced comfort features and has a powerful engine under its hood which is designed to deliver best acceleration and pickup.

Also the fuel economy of this brand new Polo is lower than its rivals in the Indian car market. With a price tag ranging from Rs. 4.99 lakhs to 7.99 lakhs (Ex-showroom, New Delhi), this Volkswagen New Polo hatchback is too high when compared to its contenders.
