This is a thread which would talk about my experiences with the polo.My previous car was a Maruthi WagonR.The car has stayed with us for almost 8 years now,however we havent crossed the 50,000 mark in the oddometer.
And hasn't given us any sort of a problem for all these years.However there was a strong feeling among all our family members expect my mom,who was quiet attached with the tall boy.And also we wanted to see a new car in our parking space.
I needed a premium hatchback as sedans were out of contention due the budget.Our budget was 6.5 lakhs.The priorities were pretty simple and clean.They're:
What i could compromise:
1)engine-Wasn't bothered about the engine since i felt a 70 or 75 ps of power would satisfy us.
2)The fatory fitted gadgets,however wont compromise with the necessary gadgets and comforts like the instruments etc.
3)Space:This includes the legroom as well as the headroom,since my dad and mom are around 5.6 ft tall and me and my brother are 6 ft tall.So it would do with a comfortable space.
So the hunt began with the weapon (money of course)
Beat,i10,new wagonr:as said before i wanted a premium one
micra:Too boring interiors,and a toy like plastic quality.So rejected as i wantd a car with better interiors(was very much bored with the interiors of my wagonr.
i20:A very serious contender.Had every thing i wanted.But i somehow didnt like a silver colour in the interior.And moreover i wanted a german or a non Japanese car.And didn't want to risk the rattling noise in steering wheel.
POLO:This car stole my heart just by its looks and the snob valued badge.It gave me every thing.My priorities were fulfilled So decided with the polo.
