    Well, I agree for the standards of VW the interiors of Polo aren't that great. Overall pleasure of the ride is still far better in a Punto, but 1.6 TDI generating 105 HP with good torque is something one definitely would fall for !!!

    Imagine, Polo is lighter than Vento so I need not talk about the performance :D

    Not to start a debate,but Fit/Finish and Build of Plastics is one of the best.
    Just try and close that glove box lid in a Polo/Vento.

    No argument bro, I am yet to see a perfect car within 10 lakh budget. Good engine, low maintenance, top notch build quality, good cabin space, good interiors, nice ride quality, good handling, good brakings, high speed stability (not to forget, it must clock 0-100 in as much less time possible) :D

    These 2 things come to my mind,
    1. None of the automobile manufacturers are capable and leave some or the other room for improvements or,
    2. maybe as customers we have a bit high expectations when we are investing our hard earned money (be it 5 lakhs or 10 lakhs).

    Its simple, if we want the best in class, we must shell out more money, if not just love/live what you get from manufacturer without any choice :)

    Cheers !!!

    The initial batches of the VW Polo and Ventos had this infamous AC vent breakage issue. Not that I am saying Punto's interior plastic is better by touch & feel, but atleast they are lasting the distance, irrespective of the hard finish, ill-fitments and bathroom shades given.

    Polo 1.6 TDI & Punto 90hp are like sisters. The moment someone praises their +ve aspects, the same arguments about plastic qualities, niggles and service costs start coming up :)

    One full throttle turbo pull of that 1.6 in 2nd/3rd gears and everything will be forgotten. :p

    What I feel for Punto, Fiat need to intrduce atleast same TJet engine with tune. Tax perspective It will be same as 1.4 Punto.

    Then 114 BHP with 207 NM torque Punto will be real hot hatch. This will not be much brain work for Fiat management. Hope they will introduce this with refreshed Punto.

    VW made right step for POLO this time with 1.6 TDI for enthusiasts. Insted of 1.2 GT TSI, 1.4TSI is really need for POLO ( form Tax perspective it will be same in INDIA) for enthusiast. VW also can consider it.

    1.2 TSI is as fast as the GT TDI,or should i say slightly faster.
    And the fact that it comes with a DSG gearbox,which can be coupled to paddle shifters for about 66K.
