How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The Volkswagen Polo is among the roomiest small cars. Tall adults will have plenty of head room in the front and, if you slide the front seats back on their runners, there's more leg room than you’ll find in a Renault Clio or Toyota Yaris.

The Polo’s interior is also broader than in the Clio and Peugeot 208, so there’s no danger of you rubbing shoulders with your front passenger. In fact, you’ll find more space in the latest Polo than in a Volkswagen Golf from just a few years ago. Talk about progress.

Seat folding and flexibility

All models have 60/40 split folding rear seatbacks, something the vast majority of small cars also come with as standard.

You get a height-adjustable front passenger seat on all trim levels, although there's no option to have a folding front passenger seat to carry extra-long loads. Nor does the Polo have the clever cinema-style flip-up rear seatbases that feature in the Jazz.
