How to spec a Volkswagen Polo
Our guide to Volkswagen's small hatchback covers which options to consider, which to avoid and how much to pay for it all...
The VW Polo is a stylish small car that stands out from rivals such as the Ford Fiesta, Mini hatchback and Renault Clio by offering a great combination of ride comfort and roominess. We recommend the 1.0 TSI 95 engine because it delivers punchy performance at a sensible price, and entry-level Life trim offers the best value in the line-up.
