Full Review

Exterior The exterior of this car has no equal. VW gives a warranty on the car exterior and finishing that's a precedent set by the company. Be assured, next to any car, your car will appear newer and more sofisticated. 

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) The interiors are solidly built and compact. The drivers seat is a bit cramped compared to say i20' and my feet keeps touching the left flank of the gear box assembly while driving. Features wise, it's very frugal. Very basic music player, no aux, no mini compartment for those toll receipts or loose change. 

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Very responsive engine, that has a ' roar quality ' when you rev it. It's peppier as compared to the i20, and most importantly, very stable at higher speeds, say 100-120. Fuel economy isn't more than 12 kmpl. Gearbox has great definition. 

Ride Quality & Handling Brilliant ride and very much fun to drive. Good for city and the power steering is smoother than most cars I've driven. 

Final Words Buy it for the brand, finishing and quality ride. Don't buy if you are a sucker for features and mileage. In that, just go for the Hyundai equivalent. Also not for people over 5'7" approx. Seriously.

Areas of improvement Needs more features. Fuel economy needs improvement. The headrest provided in the rear seats are useless, you can't drive with them on.
