Hello Mr modi,

This is my first car. I am looking for since last one year. I have short listed venue. 1.2 s and altroz and nexon and i20

However venue 1.2 feel underpowered and i don't rely on tata after sales services. My daily running would be 40km even i have selected ford ecosport diesel but they have dpf issue in diesel so i have cancelled.i have also checked maruti vitara breeza but fit and finish is not upto the mark.

Yesterday i tested polo tsi trend line i like the car very much. I got the below quote from vw ahmedabad. Polo tsi comportline
Ex showroom 741000
Insurance 22442
rto 39965
Fast tag 600
Amc 14385
Total 818392 after discount 800000.

I just ask you one question can i rely on vw after sales services and vw brand many people talking on youtube about turbo engine. Please give me some guidance. I don't want to give my self so much leverage by spending unnecessary amount on depreciating asset.

Even if i select venue turbo it cost me around 9.5lakh.
I am looking for car which is driver delight and looking for next 7 to 8 years. Attach is the receipt of payment.

The Volkswagen Polo Comfortline TSI is an absolute gem of a car for driving enthusiasts, with its rock solid build quality, superior handling and driving dynamics.

If you are looking to own a car for long term with good reliability and are not interested in gimmick features but focused on the 'car' aspect, It is a truly good buy, Otherwise if comfort oriented features, Rear seat legroom, mileage as compared to rivals and other aspects concern you, The Volkswagen Polo TSI may not be the best option

Greetings !!

Hi Sumit
I think you mean Volkswagen Polo Comfortline TSI
See - VW Polo 1.0 TSI is powered with same engine as what used in Rapid, Vento and also used in Kushaq in slight modified way to tune up marginally more power

This is what signature engine of Volkswagen India and delivers you very best of Performance in Mid range
Although let me disclaim you - there definite is a turbo lag under 2000 rpm but this 1.0 TSI engine feels the most exciting amomng lot in sub15 Lakh Price segment in Petrol Engines to drive on
> Highway
> in Pickup

If seek better than it then next choice is either 1.3 Turbo as used in Duster Turbo/Kicks Turbo or 1.4 GDI Petrol Engine as used in GT Line of Seltos, Creta

You would also be reasonably impressed with
> Build Quality
> Suspension
> Handling
> Fit and Finish of car
> Grip levels on higher speed

But a big downside of this engine is rear seat space which is placed relative lower and yes has limited legroom space
So essentially important to make mind that Polo TSI is best used for small family of 2 adults and 2 kids or average height members on rear seat

In terms of VW After Sales
Volkswagen is continually focussing on reducing cost of spares and making car ownership competitive
How are they achieving ? They have increased localisation and in Polo is now close to 90% localisation - which is at there all time highs
You can check on service cost - [url=https://www.mycarhelpline.com/index.php?option=com_easyblog&;view=entry&id=479&Itemid=91]VW Polo Service Cost[/ul]

Should give a fair idea

For ensuring low cost of ownership they offering in
> 4 year warranty
> 4 year RSA

and can extend to 6 year / 1.5 Lakh kms by paying approx Rs 21,000
Also can opt for service value pack which offers 4+1 means 5 years for Rs 38,000 - also include some wear & tear parts

If opting for Polo - opt for the EW of add on 2 yrs & 5 yr Service AMC Pack -Trust will offer in peace of mind ownership by spending this Rs 59,000

Hope should help !!

We are family of 4 people. You suggest me what are the best option other than this. I have seen all the car and i found this deal i got under 8 lakh. Even if i select tata altroz xt its about 770000.
Turbo lag means at what speed turbo willl activated. I normally looking for car which is in city used occasionally on highway. Even i have selected sonet diesel htx but after the accident of seltos i have decided to cancel. Please suggest me the beat option. You have also suggest best car under 10 lakh is polo vento and rapid. What are the accessories you suggest i can take from dealer. They have inform me 9500 for 3m vinyl wrap along with mirror. Is it good deal. Or what accessories you suggest.

Hi Sumit Sahab,

Polo is a great choice provided Rear Seat Space is not a deal breaker.
Did you have a chance to experience in rear seat or made family member sit on rear and experience it ? as this is a factor which is what the con of the car.

In terms of lag - Hope you test drove the car as till 2000 rpm there is slight lag and post same the engine enters in to deliver in great experience
Been driver delight is a criteria - be assured Polo is a notch better

If you concerned on Turbo aspect then here are some recommendations posted in this video - suggest to go through it


In terms of Alternate choice: If not Venue, Nexon, Sonet and respecting your preference then at given price point left is Maruti Vitara Brezza Lxi
Although yes
> Interior aesthetics are not great with yesteryear steering
> Very average fit and finish
> Plastic Quality
and somehow Rear seat are placed slight upright

But be assured Brezza (if majority of usage going to be in city) is a great pick from
> Comfort oriented drive
> 1.5 Litre engine has good grunt at low end
> Lot of space
> Easy Ingress, egress
> Lower After sales Maintenance

and a great value pick at a price point at which this car is available
Yes Lxi misses on headrest on rear seat but some of the users posted a work around solution for it. Refer - Brezza Rear Seat Headrest

But suggest to have test drive of this car as is really a differentiation factor to it.

Hope should help !!

Hi Sir,

With rising fuel prices should i go for CNG cars (driving - 10000 km/yr) and if yes then new car with prefit CNG or old car? Budget - 7- 9 L. I checked out Hyundai Aura but it didnt seem spacious. Liked honda amaze but not sure if it would be okay on aftermarket CNG

Hi Sumit ji,

For price - pls check AMC Part as looks like its a 2 year package
Recommended to consider in 5 year AMC pack

For price - suggest to involve other VW Dealership too as theres marginal more scope of rs 5000 to 7000 as possibility or negotiate for 3m roof wrap as complimentary

For 3M Roof Wrap - it do makes car look sporty but also increase in cabin temperature by few degrees
For recommended Suggest to refer this post on
> Essential Car Accessories

Hope should help !!
