Hi, Owning a Punto, I rarely drive my friends or relative's cars... But on a recent trip was forced to drive my first non-Fiat car, the Polo... My experience, jotted below: 1. Steering: The first reaction was it being too light... Somehow it was too freely moving. Could feel the turning radius lesser than my Punto. Steering adjusted to lowest setting was lower than the Punto. Somehow could never experience how the road was in the entire drive...Horn was too mild for my liking... 2. Ground Clearance: This is where I felt the most handicap... Having earlier driven my Punto to Chickmaglur ghats where not once I scratched the bottom, driving the Polo in Honnavar I had on multiple occasion scratched its underbelly, couldn't guess it being so low.. 3. Seats: Felt just enough space for two adults & one grownup kid at the rear.. Front seats gave me real back pain no matter what adjustments were made... 4. Engine Noise: Engine was very noisy, vibrations were less but you can feel that its being overworked always.. 5. Highway Drivability: Although the car seems to accelerate fast I was skeptical while driving at high speed, what with its lighter steering taking even a minute change on to the road. In contrast my Punto's steering felt solid and assured. 6. Interiors: Never liked beige, but did see the plastics being good overall nothing eyecatching. Now, I Can't really understand how with such a wonderful car as a Punto it still not a Leader of Hatches... I wish I could ask my friend to see & experience the driving difference on my Punto but I am Too Selfish to allow that or maybe 'Driving Nirvana' is only reserved to a select few!!!
