    I have seen this review comparing Polo with Punto -> https://www.teamfiat.com/members/amogh.5/ (Compared with a 1199 c Polo) & it's been almost 6th year now.

    How about a comparison of current polo TDI with 90 HP ? Anyone here have good idea about the pros / cons with 90HP over Polo 1.5 TDI (2015)

    Punto Evo 1.3 90 HP
    Polo 1.5 TDI (Pros over Punto 90 HP)
    1) Outright acceleration with better low-end performance. 90 HP is lethargic at start.
    2) Best interioir quality. 90 HP's interioir looks way more sporty though.
    3) Slicker gearbox


    Punto 90 HP (Pros over Polo):
    1) Ride
    2) Steering
    2) Wider and bigger tyres
    3) Interior space + Rear leg room
    5) Emissions :D
    6) NVH
    7) Better rear seats: More comfort with great under-thigh support
    8) GC
    9) Way lower maintenance. On an average the 15k kms service costs 5-5.5k for 90 HP and around 10k for Polo.
    10) VFM: ALmost 1 lac cheaper than Polo 1.5 Highline

    Areas where both are similar:
    1) Mid-range and top-end performance: Polo 1.5 is a lot more linear. 90 HP has a punchier mid-range.
    2) Handling: Both are similar, even though Punto inspires a lot more confidence because of brilliant steering and wider tyres combo.
    3) European build quality: Punto is the real tank here.
    4) ASS: Both dont score high marks here, but at least Punto maintenance is way cheaper. Eg: When the EGR gets clogged, VAG asks the customers to change it as they dont repair it, and it costs a bomb to change it.
    5) Once a year service interval

    @rkperumala1 : any news? have you booked the 90HP ?
    on Polo vs Punto: i have driven these cars back to back. There is no much difference in Handling. Where Punto scores is on the suspension. Its way better than Polo's. Also i personally like Evo's all back interior theme. @Turbothinghy has covered all the relevants points.

    @Deepak : I like Polo & Love Punto besides !!! The delay is due to my current car, a Honda Amaze a diesel car and my family decision's.

    They are looking for good space more than Amaze but I'm looking for solidity, a drivers car.Discussion on narrowing down the choice is still in progress...

    Recently took a look at S-Cross which have a Fiat 1.6 engine. Will keep this thread updated up on a selection.

    Mostly will endup buying Punto / Linea or other brands - Maruthi S-Cross.

    Cheers

    The price undoubtedly is very nice, however the buyer is in Hyderabad :)



    @rkperumala1 S-Cross is a very good car. If you are fine digesting the debatable external looks, the engine (1.6) gives you all that you need and the car handles well too. Linea as we know is not peppy (for the known reasons) but a super comfortable cruiser which would satisfy your needs of solidity and being a drivers car. With that new ecu map from FIAT for facelift Linea's the car can be handled in stop go traffic as well with much ease. With the Punto Evo, you might miss on the boot space from your amaze, but the car is leaps and bounds away in terms of quality and build when compared to your current ride. Also the 90HP in EVO would be more responsive than the Linea due to the weight factor.

    On the Polo 1.5 TDI, I have not driven the car yet, however Iam sure the engine would definitely more fun than the 1.3 MJD. The refinement level of the MJD being better than the TDI or the IDtec. The Polo Iam sure would have good interiors as well, the plastics might be much better than the EVO. Long term ownership costs with the VW are already well known and the MJD will be more economical to be serviced as the years pass by.

    All The best in your decision making, keep us posted with your inputs as it would help others too.

    Cheers,
    pradeep.
