It’s no surprise that so many people buy the VW Polo. It leads the class in just about every category – superb interior quality, good space inside and the sort of ride you’d expect from an executive car. If we had to nitpick, it’s a tad on the pricey side.

Trim: GTI

The regular Polo GTI is decently equipped, with air conditioning, front and rear parking sensors and 17in alloy wheels all standard. We haven’t sampled the optional 18in wheels to be able to tell you how they affect ride comfort, so as it stands, the only options we’d recommend considering are the Winter Pack (heated seats), climate control and, if you’re nervous about parking, the rear-view camera.

Engine: 2.0 TSI

This engine is exclusive to the hot Polo GTI.
