Full Review

This car truly cannot be explained in words,one has to fell the driving experience.It is truly a beauty.It can put a lot of sedans to shame.It is a complete package of good looks,great performance and most importantly safe as a turtle shell. LOOKS : The current 2019 version GTs are the best looking ones with a 10 spoke alloy wheels along with front chrome grill and a sporty rear spoiler. ENGINE AND GEARBOX : The TSI engine is imported from AUDI Europe along with a 7 speed dual clutch DSG gear box.It is a turbo charged engine and unlike other engines,the GT gets a variable geometry turbo charger which has no turbo lag. Hence the turbo kicks in as low as 1300rpm,which mean there is a good initial punch in the engine. THE DRIVE : The joy of driving a GT TSI is incredible,thanks to the dual clutch gear box and variable geometry turbo charger.The acceleration is linear and jerk-free as the dual clutch pre-selects you next gear and shifts it in a fraction of a second. This technology is only available in luxury cars such as AUDI,PORSCHE,LAMBORGHINI,BENTLEY,BUGATTI etc. SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE : The service interval is 15000 kms/one year.I hear many folks afraid of high service costs compared to other brands.Let me get this straight,All the other brands have a service interval 10000 kms. When you do the math,it is the same,2 services of VW is same as 3 services of Hyundai or Maruti. Regarding the maintenance,i would suggest an extended warranty which by the way is complementary in all VW models.I would also suggest the use of Xtrapremium petrol for better performance,milage and engine life due to the higher octane number. SAFTY : It is the most safest hatchback one can find in the market,in fact it is more safer than many sedans.It has ABS,EBD,ESP,traction control,hill hold control.One should never compromise safety for milage and initial cost.The most important important thing is the safety of your loved ones.Extra money spent can always be earned back. Consider it an investment policy for your family. THE VERDICT : The GT TSI is an AUDI A1.In fact it is a poor man's AUDI.It is truly an asset that is build to rule the Indian roads and last for a decade.
