Are the VRS's really as good as they seem?

Post by scattycat1 »

My finance on my current car finishes later this year and is starting to cost me quite a lot of money to have things repaired or replaced.

I was going to go for the new Polo, but have had a look around other dealers (Seat and Skoda in particular) and have to say I rather like the look of the VRS. Our local dealer has got one on on their forecourt and it looks lovely!

Also you seem to get a lot of kit on the car for a good price, much cheaper than the new polo.

I will probably have a test drive of it in the summer when my finance is nearly done, unless I get itchy feet!

What are your honest opinions of this car?

It's basically a Polo but for less money.
I test drove a SEAT Ibiza Cupra TDI, before I bought my Fabia.
The Cupra was a bit quicker than the vRS but was too stiffly sprung for my liking. I couldn't live with it every day.
The vRS is as well built as the Polo, reasonably quick (even more so with a remap :twisted: !!) & economical.

Take one for a test drive, see what you think.
Getting There!

Tested the Fabia VRS and the Polo 9n Gt 130 last weekend. Result bought the Polo as it not only drove better but also had better interior/equipment. And both cars were 54 plates with 10k on the clock from main dealers at £10k

Can't say anything for the little ones, but the Octavia VRS is very, very nice.
