What Car? says...

The Volkswagen Polo has always been the Golf’s smaller brother but, with this latest generation, the gap between the two models is narrower than ever.

That's because the Polo has grown up considerably over the years, both in terms of its size and its driving manners. Add to that a range of fuel-efficient engines and a modern, classy interior, and it's hardly surprising that it's such a huge seller.

The Polo finds itself in a very tough class with some seriously accomplished rivals, though – including the even bigger-selling Ford Fiesta, the sporty Seat Ibiza and the comfort-focused Peugeot 208. In this review, we'll tell you how the Polo stacks up against those alternatives in all the key areas, and we'll also fill you in on which engines and trim levels make the most sense.
