CrossPolo 1.2 TSI Owner feature - Shermaine Yvonne Tan

Owner: Shermaine Yvonne Tan
Occupation: Mechanical Engineer
Model: Volkswagen CrossPolo 1.2 TSI

That's a pretty rare Volkswagen model you have there. How long have you had it?

I've had the CrossPolo for about three years now. It just occurred to met that it's been three years, I've never kept a car for so long!

Wow, you must really like it then.

Yes I really do. My previous car was rather problematic and I ended up spending a lot of money fixing it. I eventually fave up on it and got the CrossPolo, it has been a fun ride.


How fun? What do you like about it?

I love the rugged looks, but it doesn't just look good, it performs really well too. It feels even better than its published figures! Every time I give my friends a lift, they're surprised that all that power is coming from a 1.2-litre engine. It's all it promises to be. Plus it's really easy to park too. I've since been sold on German engineering and would gladly get another Volkswagen after this.

Coming from an engineer, that's high praise indeed. Care to describe your car in three words?

Unique. Smart. Head-turner.
