Review

The Polo is a huge seller and it isn't hard to see why. It's a great all-rounder – smart and roomy inside, comfortable to sit in and good to drive. And while it’s pricier to buy outright than some of its rivals, that’s largely offset by competitive monthly finance rates and strong resale values. However, hybrid rivals offer better fuel economy and you need to pay extra for some of the modern safety kit rivals come with as standard.

get the best price

Sporty R-line trim adds 16in alloy wheels and power-folding door mirrors. It’s mainly about a sportier look, though, with a more aggressive bodykit and a number of sporty interior design touches, such as a flat bottomed steering wheel. Unless you really love the looks, save yourself some money and opt for one of the cheaper trims.

The extra power of the 1.0 TSI 95 is noticeable, but isn't worth the extra outlay.
