My wife was pretty happy with the car. She had earlier brushed aside the 5th-gen Honda City after a test drive.
BHPian thiagust recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
Took the test drive today while I picked up my GT after service.
The looks are far far better compared to pics. Test drove the 1.0 AT Blue.
My few cents
- The overall drive and feel felt a lot refined compared to my GT.
- The steering was far lighter vs GT, but felt in complete control. No complaints whatsoever.
- 1.0 felt adequate for me, did not get a chance to take it to the highway.
- Boot space is more than adequate.
- Rear seats should be fine for 2 kids plus an adult. Strictly for 2 adults though.
- The ventilated seats were for namesake, not sufficient. The SA mentioned that they don’t highlight this feature to anyone actually.
- The overall fit and finish was good.
- Not sure if VW offers the car with seats in a darker shade. When kids occupy the rear seat, lot of chances of drinks spilling and staining the seats.
- Seats were comfortable. The quality of plastics was good.
- The leather-wrapped steering wheel – my GT one feels of better quality than the one on Virtus.
More importantly, my wife was happy. She had earlier brushed aside Honda City 5th Gen after a test drive.
Another key factor is that if you have driven a VAG car for a long time, anything else may not feel good.
Also, has anyone seen the Yellow one in flesh? I have a thing for yellow-coloured cars. When I bought the i10 in 2008, wanted to buy it in yellow, but Hyundai had stopped it right about that time.
Here’s what BHPian Pequod had to say about the matter:
Me, me! The yellow is great in person, it’s not your typical yellow and looks different in the evenings vis-à-vis the morning/afternoon sun. Sort of alternates between a golden and greenish hue – to my eyes at least!
