Video: Take a good look at the Volkswagen Gol
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
Recently, we brought you a story on the launch of the VW Gol in Brazil.

The story received a tremendous response from our audience. A lot of you wrote in telling us that you wanted to know more about Gol. So here we have a Volkswagen Gol TV commercial showing you the car in action.
The easiest way to understand the Gol is to think of it as a tech-loaded Polo for the South American markets. Although it is powered by just a 1.0L petrol engine, it has some really desirable goodies such as a DSG gearbox and paddle shifters.
Like the Hyundai HB20, the Gol is a region-specific car with interiors and technology developed for certain tastes. It does not wish to visit India as it feels the Polo is taking good care of us.
