Am I hooked to this German!!!


I never dated a VW except saying some hellos and hi at time somewhere around, but this German always impressed me starting from its launch in India, may it be the nice looking hatch-backs or its nicely built stalls at Auto-Expo, there always was something striking. But honestly, doing a test drive to know a Car is hell different than driving it for some 2500+ kilometers, in the later case the Car let you know about it. Recently I drove down a VW Polo TDI starting from New Delhi to down south, Bengaluru. Driving on Golden Quadrilateral for more than 40% of its length could not be better to appreciate this German Engineering.

I am a great fan of hatch-backs, especially the 3 door ones. Reasons are many, it gives me a coziness of space but most importantly it allows me a greater driving experience. I always am more confident on road with this than with a Sedan. This type is also much more popular in Europe, because they definitely are more fuel-efficient as well as user friendly. Anyways.

VW Polo was first caught in my eyes back in 2010 Auto-Expo as Polo CUP, the rally ready. I was totally in appreciating it and the first I got to hold the steering was back in UK, a friend's Flash Red 3 door. After driving few miles I absolutely was hooked to it. Coming back to the Indian one, the 5 door one, let me tell you the things which attracted me towards it during 2010 Auto-Expo was, its lovely shape, the curvy edge of the hatch, even the trunk opener/hatch opener (it is the VW logo in the middle of the trunk) and the lamps, both the front parking lamp and the tail lamp (the tail lamp always gave me a feeling of a robots eye).
It was launched in 2010 and after 2 years I had a good time with this machine, bit late though ;)
And answer to the question is YES... I loved it.

Enjoy few of the pics shot en-route this Delhi-Banglore run until I am back with next part of the story... Cheers.
