Petrol Engine Review

  • The Polo turbo is a more powerful engine than the Amaze.
  • The Polos turbo petrol engine produces way more torque than the Amaze. So, it’ll have better drivability and in-gear acceleration.
  • The Polo’s normal petrol engine, on the other hand, is a major disappointment. Its double-digit torque output is less than that of the cheaper Renault Triber and its torque to weight ratio is less than the most affordable car currently on sale in India - Datsun Redi-Go 0.8.
  • You should be prepared to experience barely-passable performance if you buy the Polo with a normal petrol engine.
  • The turbo petrol engine, however, is a blast as it has a great torque-to-weight ratio, which is comparable with some diesel cars.

Is the Volkswagen Polo better than the Honda Amaze?

The Amaze beats the Polo with its dimensions in every manner.

As far as petrol powertrain is concerned, Polos turbo engine offers more torque, so it is expected to offer better mileage compared to Amazes engine. However, the Polo’s normal petrol engine has a disappointing performance for its class and asking price. You should avoid Polo’s lower variants at all costs.

The Volkswagen Polo costs more, it’s smaller than the Amaze and has a sorry normal petrol engine.
