Hot hatch that’s a hoot to drive
digital dash pod which can show regular dials or at the flick of a switch turn into a full screen sat nav - just like its Audi siblings.
The standard assistance systems in all Polos includes Front Assist, Blind Spot Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control and a Stop & Go function – a first for a car with a manual handbrake
And our car also boasted Front Assist, a radar sensor controlled distance monitoring system; City emergency braking system and Predictive Pedestrian Protection, Driver Alert system, parking sensors, front and rear, auto wipers and headlights plus battery regeneration (energy recovery during braking).
To demote it as the fastest Polo there’s a GTi pack with unique bumpers and front grille, rear spoiler, flared sills, chrome twin exhaust tailpipes, red brake calipers and GTi badging.
So it looks good and is a hoot to drive quickly - add to that the fact that residual values are expected to outperform all of its rivals over three years and 36,000 miles and you have a compelling case to put this little flyer on your driveway.
