VOLKSWAGEN POLO Car Review
The small car that is hard to beat
Finding a car name that stands out is not easy but VW picked a winner when they came up with Polo.
The catchy name seemed the perfect fit for a super-mini and even though the Polo is Volkswagen’s small car it has all the quality you expect from the VW badge. People expect that little bit more from a VW and that’s exactly what you get from the VW Polo, as an all round small cars it’s hard to beat.
The VW Polo has a premium look and feel to it with the eye catching corporate VW grille and headlights it shares with its big brothers, and on the inside it’s a class act with the best quality materials and trim of any super-mini.
Volkswagen know how to deliver a cabin that oozes class but in a simple and unfussy way, plus you get the interior space you used to expect in a Golf a few years ago. And when you drive a VW Polo it actually feels like a car from the sector above, its so refined it’s just like driving a scaled down Golf, and that’s a serious compliment.
The VW Polo actually shares some of the same engines as the Golf , except for the entry level 1.0 litre which suit’s the VW Polo really well with between 55 to 60 mpg. Alternatively, there is the more responsive 1.2 litre petrol or the lively and ultra economical 1.4 diesel - which gives you well over 70 mpg.
