At 351 litres, the Polo’s boot is on a par with the Ibiza's for on-paper space, but it is much bigger than that in rivals such as the Fabia and Ford Fiesta.
It’s likely that all Polos will get an adjustable boot floor, meaning that once the rear seats are folded down, the floor remains flat from the boot entrance all the way to the front seats. It should also mean that 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.
