Admin Accepted Answer

Heres our review on all 3 Cars - Jazz, Polo & Elite I20
Starting with Honda Jazz first

Positive Points
Honda Jazz Plus Points
> Jazz rules in this department. Cabin Space in Honda Jazz is Top Notch. Bottle holders, Spacious 354 Lit Boot Space, Class Leading Legroom, Shoulder room - its an apt spacious car for 5 passengers. If you choose in Top End then Magic seats - Flip, Flap, Split would all add to space. The car is designed in such a way - as if to give feel of Mid Sedan Cars in terms of Space as a Factor - leaving aside the boot Space

> Most Fuel Efficient in Diesel Hatchback Segment - almost 20% + more fuel efficient in Diesel Hatch Segment. Also - its CVT Automatic Transmission claims to be even more fuel efficient than Manual Transmission

> Low Turbo Lag in Diesel Car. Good Drive-ability in 6 Speed Transmission

> Safety Specs of ABS, Dual Airbags Loaded in Middle SV Variant. One does not need to stretch in to as far as Top end as whats there in Elite I20 Asta

> Comes with First in Segment Touchscreen - 5 Inch Touchscreen in V and 6.2 Inch AVN Multimedia Navigation System in Vx Model

Volkswagen Polo
> Diesel is the inherent Strength. The car is most fun to drive with higher torque achieved at low rpm. Pep & Acceleration is segment best

> Handling, Suspension, Drive-ability in Diesel with Smooth Light Short Gear Shift

> Polo TSI in 7 Speed Automatic is unmatched in segment for those looking for top notch drive-ability as an important parameter.

> Build Quality, Fit & Finish is Top Notch. You can feel Zero Flaw in Build

> Comes Equipped with Airbags as Standard even in base Model. Middle Model Comfort line is well equipped with Safety Specs

Hyundai Elite I20
> Most Stylish Hatchback in India. In Exteriors - LED Tail Lights, Wide Body Design, 16 Inch Alloys, Front Bumper gives a feel of a Luxury Hatchback. Even in Interiors too - its Interior Aesthetics are at par with Polo and even in appeal looks better to our view than Polo

> Comes Loaded with Top Notch Features - Rear Seat AC Vents, Bigger 16 Inch Alloys in Sport Option & Asta, Wider Tyres, Push Button Ignition, Clutch Footrest

> Diesel is what you would love driving in. Though - all 3 cars in Diesel - Polo, Elite I20, Jazz offers negligent Turbo Lag - but Elite I20 Engine Noise levels are much lower than what you will observe in Jazz and Polo. Power & Pep in 6 Speed Transmission is as good as what you get in Polo

Engine Performance
> Honda Jazz Petrol comes in Proven 1.2 Lit IVtec Engine. In terms of ride & Handling - Unlike Amaze - which comes with low turning radius of 4.5 m - Honda Jazz has relative high turning radius of 5.1 m and even its weight is around 6 to 7% heavier than Amaze. So - if you considering a car for in city usage and traffic conditions - you may not be well very happy due to relative low end torque - not as impressive as expected. However - Mid range & highway dynamics of the car still remains better than most other cars in the segment. For those looking for Petrol car - but easiest of drive in city traffic - look no other than CVT Automatic Transmission in Jazz.

For Performance drivers - Hyundai Elite I20 in Petrol is also not as impressive as what performance you get in Diesel. Polo too in 3 cylinder Petrol with lower Power output. The Power Delivery in both Elite I20 & Polo - though looks well suited for in traffic city conditions - but for highway dynamics is what Jazz

Our reco in terms of handling
> In CIty - Polo & Elite I20. Though Jazz CVT Automatic would be much better
> In Highway - Honda Jazz
> Overall for best Performance in City & Highway - VW Polo TSI / TDI

Honda Jazz
> Noise Levels in Idtec Diesel Engine is on higher Side
> Petrol Engine Performance Pep is not what you get in Brio, Amaze
> Not as stylish as what you get in Elite I20.
> Premium pricing in Diesel

Hyundai Elite i20
> Safety Features from Sportz Model Onwards. Dual Airbags restricted only in Top End Asta
> Smaller 14 Inch Wheels in I20 Era, Magna & Sportz Model Trim
> Petrol Engine not as exciting as is Diesel

VW Polo
> Rear Seat Legroom looks bit Compact
> After Sales Service Network & Maintenance Costs
> 3 Cylinder Petrol Engine - looks under powered
> Mileage Relative on lower side against Elite I20 & Jaz

Hope should help in making a choice !!
