What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Classy; spacious; well built: comfortable ride

Against Rivals are better to drive; high price

Verdict Costly, but you get what you pay for

Go for… 1.4 SE

Avoid… 1.2 S

Volkswagen Polo Hatchback
  • 1. The Polo beats rivals such as the Ford Fiesta for passenger space, with plenty of room in both the front and rear
  • 2. The five-door Polo is more practical than the three-door model, with good access to the rear seats and stronger resale values
  • 3. The entry-level 1.2-litre petrol engine comes with 59bhp or 69bhp, but we’d avoid both – instead, look for the 84bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine
  • 4. The front tyres can wear quickly, in some cases in fewer than 8000 miles
