VW polo will be more expensive than fabia. It will start at 6 L and may go all the way upto 8.5 or 9L for a Diesel Auto.

The Polo will be over priced. It will be around 11 lacs. if the dopey skoda guys can sell (actually not sell) the Fabia at 9 lacs, the polo will be sold at 11 lacs.

I would have def. bought this car, but am absolutely not sure about the A.S.S and the dealer networking. As of now if am not wrong there are only 35 dealers of VW in INdia. Will they be able to handle the pressure from the Polo.

NOne the less this is a strikingly beautifull car. Damn these VW guys know how to make small cars super cute.

Cheers

?? 4-4.5 lacs ? polo. Am sure you have missed a point here. Apparently Skoda is plannign to make a small cheap car. And do you know what is going to be price of the SKdoa cheap car ? yes 4 lacs.

Sorry to burst your bubble bro.

I dont understand why cant they get some cars which can beat the fiat palio 1.6 power:weight ratio performance. I own a palio 1.6 gtx and love the performance but if anything goes wrong it burns a hole in my pocket as well as the parts are not readily available.

Change your dealer, dear. If parts can be readily available in Delhi, there is no reason for a shortage in Mumbai.

If the GTX can burn a hole in the pocket, the Polo sure is capable of leaving a crater. I would be overjoyed if VW proves me wrong on this, though.

OT : Seriously get some pants with non flammable pockets dude! I have owned a palio for 7 years now, never had an issue finding spares or with their cost for that matter.
Have you seen how VW (through their subsidiary Skoda) prices their spares?
Good luck with that!

I concur with Pradster,
My GTX is six years old and the only spares changed as yet is 4 tires, Battery,1 set Wiper blades and the accelerator cable replaced with an autorickshaw clutch cable which is going strong for the past 5 and 3/4 year.
The autorickshaw clutch cable and monkey nut cost me 8 rupees in a village and the replacement charge was 10rupees though I forced him to take 50 rupees for helping me change it on a sunday morning. He helped with the tools since he knew nothing of the Palio and was a autorickshaw mecahnic.
Due to my experiments with LPG fueling I had to change 3 airfilter boxes and also a fuel pump which I cannot hold against FIAT.
All the spares mentioned were readily available and changed by me personally excluding the tires which required the help of the tires changer.
As far as an option in buying another car to better the GTX just wait and pray for the Punto to be released with the 1.6vgt next year.

Seems like the Polo is already here with a vehicle with a not so indian number plate doing the rounds of south mumbai.
Just saw a silver one passing by twice from the Porsche showroom.
Looks good, must say.
