    VW polo 1.5lt. is one of the best vehicles i have ever driven recently. The engine is smooth, the quality exudes out of cabin..and the rough road felling or feedback are different in 2014 polo. I wish, VW taigun will get the same amount of attention, including increased space, Premium aircon vents (like a class) and alloys.
