Awarded Auto Express’ Supermini of the Year in 2016 (for the second year running), the Volkswagen Polo possesses a roomy and stylish interior. This attractive hatchback also boasts cost-effective engines and is available in three and five-door iterations.
The good-looking Polo’s smart front fascia sports a black radiator grille – featuring chrome-trimmed louvres – which is bisected by a smart body-coloured bumper. Standard illumination includes range-adjustable headlights, door mirror-integrated indicator lights and a high-mounted brake light. Lightweight 15-inch alloy wheels are available as an option with entry-level S trim lines and come as standard with Match grades.
An attractive five-seat cabin features a number of high-gloss black elements, including decorative inserts, air vent trims and details on both handbrake and gear lever. The driver benefits from a tilt-and-telescopic three-spoke steering wheel, as well as the effortless control that power-assisted steering provides. Other standard features include electric front windows and a heated rear windscreen (with automatic switch-off facility). A 280-litre cargo capacity can be quickly increased to 952 litres, simply by folding the Polo’s rear seats.
A 1.0-litre 44kW petrol engine is fitted as standard. Paired with a five-speed manual gearbox, this returns as much as 4.8 l/100km and CO2 emissions as low as 108g/km. The vehicle comes with start/stop system and battery regeneration as standard.
Audio entertainment is provided by a six-speaker sound system, including DAB radio. Also featured as standard is a five-inch colour touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity and AUX and SD inputs. The Polo comes with Euro NCAP’s five-star safety rating, and driver aids include Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, Electronic Stability Control, Hill-hold Assist and a tyre pressure indicator. Passive safety elements, such as whiplash-minimising front-row head restraints, three-point seatbelts, seatbelt reminders, ISOFIX anchor points and multiple airbags, are featured as standard too.
