Now let the review continue,
Colors in the dashboard:The beige and black matches the outer color(black) perfectly.Also i have purchased and fitted the seat colors.i will post the pictures of the interior.
Plastics: Splendid.The plastics are fantastic.It has the sedan like plastics.Its a joy to rub the plastics in the interiors.Its give me such a pleasure to rub it especially after my old wagonr.
Panel gaps:nil.They have surely built the car with a great perfection even though there is a huge demand for the car.And it justifies the time taken for delivering the car.
Lights & buttons:The buttons in the car has a nice tact feel to it.And the illumination of these buttons are truly unbelievable considering the fact that its a hatch.The red color lighting never distracts you.And it goes beautifully with the interiors.It looks natural.
Chrome fills :Adds a premium feel.Its too good to see it in the daylight.It makes the car richer and feels class above.
Music player: The sound is pretty good.The bass,treble,fade options are cool to use the difference can be surely felt.Though the sound isn't fantastic , its pretty good for me.Also i badly miss the USB option.But its does what it claims and is very truthful to me.
The Multi Function Display: It is one of the best feature in the car.It displays the odometer,Kms left for the amount of petrol,Avg fuel consumption,Instant fuel consumption,Speed,Time taken in the trip,Kms taken in the trip,Outside tempreture,time.
But what i cant figure out is wheather there is a speed limiting sound(beeps) and i dont get the gear shifter in my car (or iam not able to figure it out)
Steerling Wheel:Its is a pleasure to use this.Its feather light.I can steer the vehicle with the index finger.Its very light.And the plastic,the design is pleasant and applealing
The light knob,Wiper,Turning lights:It is hard to adopt the reverse way of the levers in the car.And its making my dad frustrated.Its a bit complicated actually.THe indicators are in the left side while the wiper are there in the right hand side.So it takes some time to get used to it. However once used to these the car is a pleasure to use.The glove box is huge and also a chiller(cools so much).The light in the top (located in the center) is also great.Every thing in this car makes you feel special and premium.Surely a sedan feel is coming from the interiors.
Gear shift: Butter smooth.Short and slick and best in class.The clucth is soft and awesome.Its superb and iam sure it will be great in the highways
And there is wall kind of a structure (it comes along the A\C knobs).It allows the legs to rest and iam sure it will be very helpful in the long drives.
Horn:This is also something that brings a smile to my face.It gets the attention from all including the trucks,sumos,(SUVS),and the passing ppl.
Comfort inside:great.The bucket kind of design in the front seat are greats and it gives a fantastic thigh support.Also the seats and legroom is good.I have no problems in it.And it never gives any neck aches or back aches.
However i hate the long transmission tunnel coming till the back seats.It makes it tough for the 5th passenger.
THE WAY THE CAR RIDES:
Suspension:Ohh boy its surely soaks the bumps and pothholes.Its great.Only if you ride you will feel the difference.
Body roll:Its very little.Almost nil.Gives the driver the total confidence to take it through any sharp turns.And steerling wheel also gives a bonus to the car.The car is very stable in high speed.
Gear Ratios:Splendid.VW have chosen it perfect.Rightly said "Desire power,Have mileage"
