The day finally arrived when I thought to myself, I’ve ridden a bike for more than 10 years and loved every moment and its time I upgraded to a car. Then the big questions poured in, Diesel or petrol:
The way the petrol prices were rising, I decided to go with the diesel option
Budget was set at around 7,00,000 on road
The options considered were
• Polo Figo:
I’m going to be very frank with you, HATED the looks from the moment I laid eyes on it. The plastic bits were cheap and overall build of the car was unimpressive, though the engine was surprisingly refined. The dealer bombarded me with all freebies but my mind was set, Figo was not the car for me.
From the time I started looking for my car Swift was just a backup option. I am not denying the fact that it is an amazing car!! But just the fact that it had an 8 month waiting was a turn off. I20:
Amazing!! The powerful engine which sucks you deeps inside the seats as the turbo kicks in, umpteen features like automatic A/c, OVRM, electronic rear view control and Cooled dash box got me excited. As soon as the TD was done, almost went ahead and booked the car. Polo:
One Sunday morning (10th June) I thought I’d go check out the polo for the sake of it, as initially I thought it was a little overpriced. Forced myself and got ready within 20 minutes ended up at Volkswagen Mysore. The sales staffs was extremely polite and informative, with the showroom decked up in white it did add a touch of class. All this got me excited and finally took the TD. Need not say more!
2 hours later I found myself booking a SILVER POLO TDi, Comfortline. A tad above my budget, But I did not protest.
Expected date of delivery was 30th of June.
On 28th I got a call from the showroom confirming that my car had arrived and on receipt of the cash the car would be sent for registration and delivered to me on time.
