Volkswagen Polo options to choose and avoidImage 1 of 8

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.

However, there is some temptation among the Polo’s options list, so click through this slideshow to see what we'd add, and what we'd avoid.
