German cars are the most talked about cars with their precise and refined engineering and their hunger to make the best cars possible. There is always competition in the hatchback market as most of the middle class families go for the hatchbacks considering their small families. There have been minute changes on the outside with one having to look very closely to notice the changes. There are quite a few changes on the inside as well, so can the Polo be a hit with the attractive new pricing. The Volkswagen Comfortline is available in six new colors which are the Night Blue, Carbon Steel, Copper Orange, Reflex Silver, Flash Red and Candy White.
The hatch comes powered by 1.2 Liter Multi Point Injection Engine, a 1198 cubic centimeters of engine which churns out 75 bhp at 5400 revs and peak torque of 110 Nm at 3750 revs. The centrally mounted fuel tank has a big capacity of 45 liters with each liter giving out an average of 16.5 kilometers. The car seats 5 people, one wouldn’t say with ease as there is always less space for the legs and which has been a complaint before too. The car takes bit of an effort to overtake cars on the highways as there is much of power on the car, the engine feels lethargic at times. The engine is on the smoother side though and is refined which is expected from the German automakers. The polo goes over the bad roads without any problem thanks to the McPherson Strut and stabilizer in the front and semi independent trailing arm at the back also there is no sound of suspension crashing. The car is ideal for small families having 4 or 5 people which have children. The car is priced at Rs %.57 Lakhs(ex-showroom, New Delhi)
