New Car ? Or Stay Fiat

So i brought a 10Plate Evo 9months back for around £5200 with 25,000 on clock and it was a beauty to look at I've kept her clean and fresh but it doesn't have the pull and power I'm looking for which is a same for a 1.4
Petrol.
I've been offered a VW Polo TSI 193BHP for less than im paying now on the evo, and they've offered to pay my standing amount on the evo too! Too sweeten the deal.

Im wondering if theirs any other Evo shapes out their too make me stay fiat bigger engines, Turbos even im open to all

New Car ? Or Stay Fiat

Tbh I not too long ago drove a 2002 golf GTI TDI Anniversary, remapped to 200BHP, Miltek stainless exhaust, brembo brakes and a pipercross panel filter and my God was it quick. It drove a lot smoother than my Evo despite it being 8 years older and had 60K more miles on it. But if you're interested in the Evo look into Evo the 1.4T sporting or the 1.4T Abarth. I've got the sporting and it is quick but in all fairness if you can afford it get the Abarth it just looks so much nicer with the body kit and claw alloys, I'm tempted to save up and upgrade to one my self. But that polo would be a lot quicker than both of those models, 193bhp in a car that size would be rapid.

To have 193bhp that would have to be the gti model which is about £18k.....?

So what you're saying is; after less than a year of buying your Evo at £5200, which was probably a front loaded loan so you'll probably own more on finance at the moment than the cost of the car, the dealership will sell you a car at 3 times the cost, pay off your finance and still charge less a month than you Evo!?

Either the finance deal you got on the Evo was so bad you're paying a million percent interest rate.
Or you've misunderstood what's going on with the new deal on the polo.

Also going from a 77hp punto to a 1.8 turbo charged polo GTI is going to seriously effect your insurance premiums

You'd be surprised on insurance, my 1.4T is £400 cheaper to insure than my old 1.2 Punto

But we're not talking about a 1.2 versus a 1.4 both of which are pretty gutless, we're talking about a 193bhp VW GTI, I would definitely be very surprised if you can insure a 1.8turbo VW cheaper than a 1.4 fiat Punto Evo

If it's a new model it won't be that expensive as there will be next to no accidents in that vehicle, same reason why mines so cheap because there is many on the road

Re: New Car ? Or Stay Fiat

The 1.8 GTI is 192BHP unless your thinking of a match TSI or R-Line TSI?
