The buying experience was wonderful, right from test drive to taking delivery.
The 1.0 TSI Manual is a drivers car to the core... there's no other option in the market with such power and torque figures at sub 10 lacs price range. The ride is plush, not too soft not too harsh. The rigidity of the chassis is felt especially on turns, the control is remarkable. Even at 150kph the car is very stable and sure-footed. As I said a complete driver's car.
Talking about looks, well i must admit it looks dated now.. especially on the inside. Also, projector headlamps would've been nice with DRL's.... But then again this isn't a car for lookers but for the one in the driver's seat.
Servicing cost well is slightly higher but not too high I guess cause if it's really calculated per anum it roughly comes nearby to foreign brands like Hyundai, honda etc. Parts are expensive as the technology is advanced and it's understandable.
Pros: Driving dynamics, ergonomics, power, braking, torsional rigidity, safety, service.
Cons: space, infotainment and audio systems, Storage spaces, USB charging points.
All in all, if you love to drive and can afford it, go for it.... it will keep the smile on... :)
Ps go for 1.0TSI and not the 1.0MPI
