MATCH-UP

Car (South Africa) - - TEST -

OUR VERDICT

This is the sixth gen­er­a­tion of the Polo, and VW’S ex­per­tise with the prod­uct shows in the re­fine­ment of the pack­age. As spa­cious, com­fort­able, high­tech and well fin­ished as any­thing in this class.

OUR VERDICT

Good fun to drive, with a snick­ety six-speed gear­box, will­ing en­gine and fun dy­nam­ics. Good to look at, too. Cabin qual­ity isn’t on par with the VW’S, how­ever, and the back seat is smaller.

OUR VERDICT

Nearly 10 years into its model cy­cle, but still a fierce com­peti­tor. The best en­gine here pow­ers a bril­liant chas­sis. Weak cabin, though, but that’s been ad­dressed with the new one ar­riv­ing in Q2.
