Seriously, seeing the title first, I thought it would be some 500bhp hatchback that beat a Porsche!

Jokes aside, I don't know why has that website firstly compared a hatchback to a Porsche? Ridiculous!

But if there was an award for best driver's hatch under $20k, It'd be surely be the Polo TSi. That is a fine example of how one can achieve power and efficiency at the same time, without compromising on the "fun to drive" factor. I wish VW brought this engine in India. Sigh!

I knew that headline would get you guys scrambling to read the report. I fell for it myself. Just shows you how all TBHPians think alike!

Please do not start threads with misleading titles. - Support Team

Also, you need to add some content on your own. Don't start a thread with just a link to somewhere else.
