What Car? says...
The Volkswagen Polo has always been highly regarded, but for most of its 47-year history it's been in the shadow of its bigger brother. You know the one we’re talking about, of course: the iconic Golf.
This latest-generation Polo is finally finding the spotlight, though, having brought the gap between the two models closer than ever. That's because it has grown up considerably over the years.
It can't ignore the premium offerings in the class, either, including the closely related Audi A1 and the Mini 5dr. In this review, we'll tell you how the Polo stacks up against its rivals in all the key areas, and we'll also fill you in on which engines and trim levels make the most sense.
Whichever small car you decide is right for you, make sure you check out our free What Car? New Car Buying service. You’ll find big discounts on most makes and models of car – including some of the best Volkswagen Polo deals.
