Few months back I plan to change my 3 years old Santro with the New Diesel Hatchback car (reason to change my car is the frequently hike in the price of petrol.) as I love to travel and explore new places and my average annual travelling is around 10k to 12k, So I plan to go for the Diesel hatch.
I donít have many options in my mind, initially I am confused in the 2 cars in the hatchback segment 1
. Maruti Swift
: Swift is always on the top of the list, 3 years back when I was planning my 1st personal car (Santro) that time also I was willing to purchase swift but that time my mom suggest me to go for the santro, so I go for the Santro. This time I was pretty sure that I am going to book the Swift. I visit the showroom to check the New Swift, In showroom I have to wait around 10-15 minutes so that SE will come and attend us. After 15 minutes 1 SE came to me and asked that which fuel variant are you looking for, I said I am looking for the diesel model he straightly reply that for diesel model you have to wait for at least 6 to 7 month this is the waiting period for swift diesel. As I already set the deal with my cousin brother to sell my santro to him within the 1 month of time, So I donít have time and patients to wait for 6 to 7 months, So again I drop my plan to buy Swift and plan to try my next option i20. 2
. Hyundai i20
: I like the looks of i20 and the car is full of gadgets and the space is also good inside the car. I go for the test drive, I was pretty much satisfy with the performance of the car, pickup is great and on the top gears also you never feel that car is out of breath but I feel some uneasiness while driving when car is on high speed and suddenly enters in the pot hole the suspensions of the car are not able to handles it properly and you feel some bumpy ride on uneven roads. Overall I am satisfied with the pickup and performance of the car and after all I already using the Hyundaiís car so I was satisfied with the after sale service as well, So I was convinced enough to go for the i20. So I collect all the details and the loan process and ask the SE that I will confirm the booking with in the same week.
While returning home my Cousin suggest me that 1 of his friend purchased the VW Polo, letís try polo as well. I first reaction was no I heard that VW cars are very costly to maintain so I donít want to go for VW cars, he insist again letís check out the car first than you will decide at last the choice is yours. I said ok letís try VW also. 3
. VW Polo
: Entered the showroom in the first row red polo is showcased I was just start admiring the car not even wait for the SE me and my cousin start admiring the polo. SE came and ask that which car we are interested in my cousin reply with polo SE asked directly Sir do you have other car in your mind, I honestly reply yes I almost finalize the i20. SE replies that no doubt i20 is the good car and he start comparing i20 and polo, I donít even bother to hear what he is trying to explain I already convinced by the looks of the Polo. Than SE explains that the built quality of the polo is far much better than the i20 and it is much stable on high speed as compare to i20, I told him that I am convinced with the built quality of the car now I want the test drive of the polo, within 5 minutes he arrange the demo car for the test drive. Initial phase of the test drive I was not much convinced as compare to i20 the pickup of the polo is not enough, but on third gear it start gaining the momentum and I also try to test the stability of the polo on high speed, I must say that I was convinced with the handling of the polo. The suspensions of the polo are really far much better than i20. After test drive I was make my mind that this is my next car and within no time make a call to my mom and tell them I am going to book polo, she was not aware of the care I ask her to check the photos on the net, after 10 minutes she callback and said she also like the car. I book the polo trendline and SE assures me that I got my beauty after 1 week and he kept his promise on july 30th I got the delivery of the beautiful polo in red color.
I try my best to upload the pics of my red beauty ASAP
