Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Volkswagen Polo hatchback?

If you’re looking for a something fun, have a go in the Ford Fiesta – it's one of the best handling small cars and can even embarrass vehicles from the class above it in this respect. You won’t have quite as much room inside as you will in the Polo, though.

The Seat Ibiza is another fun-to-drive tiddler and has more engine options than the Polo. The 158bhp 1.5 TSI Evo engine, in particular, will appeal to those who want something with a bit of extra pep.

Overview

The classy and spacious Volkswagen Polo ranks among our favourite small cars, while affordable used prices only sweeten the deal 

  • Supple ride
  • Generous interior space
  • Quiet on the move
  • Seat Ibiza is similar yet more fun
  • Noisy diesel engine
  • Seatbelt issue
