At 351 litres, the Polo’s boot is pretty much on a par with the Seat Ibiza's for on-paper space, but is much bigger than rivals such as the Skoda Fabia and Ford Fiesta.
It’s likely that all Polos will get an adjustable boot floor, which means that once the rear seats have been folded down, the floor remains flat from the boot entrance all the way to the front seatbacks. It should also mean there isn’t much of a lip to lift heavy bags over.
It’s a practical space, too, because the Polo’s wheel arches don’t protrude into the boot, keeping the space efficiently square.
