    Petrol Engine Review

    • The Polo has more powerful petrol engines than the GO.
    • The Go produces more torque than the Polo non-turbo but far less than the Polo turbo.
    • The GO 1.2 L petrol is more fuel-efficient than the Polo.
    • The Go has a better torque to weight ratio than the Polo non-turbo but much lower than the Polo turbo. So, the Polo turbo will offer the best drivability.
