The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

You shouldn’t struggle to get comfortable in the Volkswagen Polo: all versions provide a generous amount of driver’s seat and steering-wheel adjustment. The standard seats fitted to Life models could do with a bit more side support, something you get from the sports seats in Style and R-Line models.

Those top two trim levels also come with standard adjustable lumbar support, a feature you have to pay a small premium for with entry-level Life (and we'd recommend you do).

Sat nav and infotainment

As standard, every Polo has an 8.0in touchscreen in the middle of its dashboard, with built-in sat-nav included on all trims except entry-level Life. Even so, you get Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring across the range, so you can display your favourite phone navigation app on the screen instead. 

The Polo’s touchscreen offers high-quality graphics and responds quickly enough to your prods. To help you navigate the system with a little more ease, there are touch-sensitive shortcut buttons around the screen. We wouldn't bother forking out for the expensive 9.2in Discover Pro upgrade.
