For me, the car behaves exactly the same it did on Day 1. But I am not an aggressive driver and I change gears gently. I also get my car serviced exactly after 1 year.
The car sometimes feels out of power but that is due to 3 cylinder 1.2 Non-turbo engine. TSI was not released back then and even 4 cylinder 1.6 Petrol Polo was discontinued so I had to opt for this engine. Apart from that, everything feels good. Definitely better than Maruti and Hyundais in same price range.
Suspension is soft due to nature of roads in India. If the suspension is stiff, it may cause some back injury due to a pot hole or speed breaker.
Average fuel efficiency is acceptable.
In City: 13-15 kmpl under normal traffic.
5-10 kmpl under heavy bumper to bumper traffic.
15-18 kmpl on expressway. Once I had hit 19.5 kmpl from Pune to Mumbai journey.
