Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The regular Polo has a brilliant driving position, so it’s hardly surprising that the GTI variant impresses in this area, too. In fact, the figure-hugging tartan sports seats make this range-topper even more comfortable than its cheaper siblings, and you get adjustable lumbar support as standard to help with your posture. You sit fairly high up, although less so than in the Ford Fiesta ST and Peugeot 208 GTi.

Visibility is excellent for the class, and the fact that you get both front and rear parking sensors as standard means you’ll have no excuses if you scrape a bumper. You have to pay extra for a reversing camera, though, and you’ll need to go for the GTI+ version (or pay extra) for powerful LED headlights to improve visibility at night.
