      Polo GTI

      The Polo GTI was a car that we really drooled over ever since its launch. It was just so much the perfect car if only it was priced a bit practically. We love to drive and this hatch really made me feel happy behind the wheel. Had taken an extended test drive and loved the car to bits. The lack of availability of cars and obscene pricing really kept me confused. Tried to grab a deal when the discounts were offered and missed the boat completely as we were in Uttarakhand at the time and the cars just got picked very quickly. Fast forward to the current date and we had the good fortune of grabbing a two month old used GTI with 1000km on the odo for a competitive price thanks to mclaren1885. Did not want to let go of this opportunity and bit the bullet.

      The GTI has now clocked about 2500kms and am pretty pleased with our (I and Shivali) decision. It is just the perfectly impractical car that we would love to have. Would be the right time to put few pictures of the car from some of the drives that we have managed.

      The engine has good amount of power and a flat torque curve to tap into. The paddles are so much fun to use and makes cornering superb fun. With a Power to weight ratio of 151PS/tonne, it is definitely fast. The suspension setup is for sporty usage and the ride gets quite harsh on imperfect roads. On smooth tarmac, one can only smile. The car has Michelin PS4's and they are wonderful tires and enhance the driving experience many fold. The seats are very well bolstered and the steering is a extremely nice to hold. Getting in at the back is not easy and needs the front seats to be folded up. Boot space is minuscule and can carry very little. I get a fuel mileage of 13 on the highway and about 10 on the backroads.

      Batman!! Congrats on yet another polo

      That car should be a hoot to drive. Small, light weight and a big engine. Combo made in heaven.

      Thanks Naveen. The OEM colour is red. The car came wrapped in black when I got it. I just need to drive it well enough and feel happy. Hopefully we all can do a drive together like last time.
