    Dimension Review

    • The Dzire is longer than the Polo by 24mm.
    • The Dzire is wider than the Polo by 53mm.
    • The Dzire is taller than the Polo by 46mm.
    • The Polo has a longer wheelbase than the Dzire; by 19mm.
    • The Dzire has 98 litres more boot space than the Polo.
    • The Dzire has 5mm more ground clearance than the Polo.

    In terms of dimensions, the Dzire is a larger car compared to the Polo. So, it will have a better road presence than the Polo. Despite having a longer wheelbase, the Polo has much less legroom in the rear seat. If you’re frequently going to use the rear seats or fill up the boot with luggage, then we advise you to not go for the Polo.

    Petrol Engine Review

    • The Polo has a far more powerful engine than the Dzire.
    • The Polo's turbo petrol engine produces way more torque than the Dzire's.
    • The Dzire hybrid petrol manual is more fuel-efficient than the Polo manual.

    The Polo's TSI engine offers more torque, so it will offer better driveability compared to the Dzire's engine. But, the Dzire’s hybrid technology will add some off-peak torque and therefore, its drivability won’t be as bad as the specs suggest.

    While the Dzire’s performance may not be as exciting as the Polo turbo’s it’s worlds better than the Polo’s non-turbo petrol engine. That engine has a torque-to-weight ratio comparable to the Alto 800 and it also has the worst fuel efficiency compared to the other two engines in this comparison.

    For petrol powertrain, Polo's engine offers more torque, so it will offer better driveability compared to Dzire's engine. The difference between the Polo’s turbo and non-turbo engines is so big, that we recommend against buying the non-turbo engine if you go for the Polo. If you're looking for a car with lower fuel costs then Dzire will be better since its hybrid engine is far more fuel-efficient.
