Hot hatch that’s a hoot to drive

Rochdale Observer - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

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.
