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.
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.
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.
