VW Polo, Hyundai i10 Nios Turbo or used Fiat Punto Abarth: Which to buy?



I am looking to buy a turbo-petrol car in a budget of Rs 10 lakh. I have shortlisted the VW Polo 1.0 TSI, Hyundai i10 Nios turbo and a used Fiat Punto Abarth. My main priorities are good comfort and tuning potential.

Of all the cars you’ve shortlisted, we recommend taking a close look at the VW Polo 1.0 TSI. It would offer the best of both worlds with respect to practicality and performance – if you can make peace with its shortcomings like a tight cabin, lack of modern features and a dated design.

However, despite being over a decade old in the Indian market, the Polo still scores high in terms of outright performance, good ergonomics, well-balanced driving dynamics and a high-rated safety quotient, with a proven 4-star rating from Global NCAP.

Being a car from the VW Group, you have endless possibilities to modify or tune it, with a huge aftermarket support of performance parts and tuning options for the 1.0 TSI engine.

The Polo 1.0 TSI manual will fit well within your stipulated budget of Rs 10 lakh, and it is also the most engaging engine-gearbox combination on offer on this premium hatchback.
