FAQs

Frequently asked questions about the Volkswagen Polo

  • What is the Volkswagen Polo?
  • Create a blueprint of the perfect supermini and the chances are you’ll end up with something resembling the Volkswagen Polo. Across four decades, it has provided safe and reliable transport for the masses, with a rock-solid image making it as at home parked outside a student’s accommodation as outside a pensioner’s flat. It has seen off many competitors, with buyers happy to pay a premium to own a Polo. Rivals range from volume models such as the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa, to premium models like the Audi A1 and MINI Hatch.
  • Which versions of the Volkswagen Polo are available?
  • While in the past you could buy estate, saloon and three-door versions of the Volkswagen Polo, today there’s just the five-door hatchback. The engine range is limited to four outputs of a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol unit, a single 1.6-litre turbodiesel and the 2.0-litre petrol found in the Polo GTI.

    The non-turbocharged 1.0-litre variants are available with 65hp and 80hp outputs and are best avoided, as is the diesel. Instead, opt for the peppy 1.0-litre turbo in either 95hp or 115hp guises to enjoy a terrific blend of performance and economy. A five-speed manual gearbox is fitted to the diesel and lower-powered 1.0-litre cars, with the other versions offered with a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG automatic. Trim levels include S, SE, Beats, R-Line, SEL, GTI and GTI Plus.
  • What is the Volkswagen Polo GTI?
  • The Polo GTI certainly looks the part, with its 17-inch alloy wheels, lowered suspension, LED tinted rear light clusters and classic GTI styling. One could argue that the overall look is rather subtle – maybe bordering on dull – but Volkswagen’s GTIs have always preferred to let their dynamics do the talking. This latest version is powered by 2.0-litre turbocharged engine developing 200hp, enough to sprint to 62mph in 6.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 148mph. The Ford Fiesta ST remains the default choice in the segment, but the Polo GTI is perfectly acceptable if you’re after something a little more grown-up.
  • What's under the skin?
  • Perhaps more than ever, the Volkswagen Polo looks like a mini-Golf. Whether or not this is a good thing depends on how you feel about the Golf, but the new Polo is certainly a huge step up from the previous models. Subjectively, we reckon the platform-sharing Seat Ibiza just edges it in the styling department, but the Polo has the benefit of a nicer cabin, a better image and a wide range of customisation options. As if to counter the more mature stance, Volkswagen has rolled out a fresh palette of exterior colours and interior add-ons. As you’d expect, the cabin offers class-leading quality and the latest infotainment system.
  • How does the Volkswagen Polo drive?
  • The Polo has never been the sharpest supermini – the Ford Fiesta remains the class leader here – but Volkswagen led us to believe that this sixth-generation model would introduce some joie de vivre. Sadly, it still falls short of the Fiesta, with the Polo retaining its ‘big car’ feel and mature characteristics. But, with 14 million sales under its belt, you can’t really blame Volkswagen for not messing with a winning formula. Just don’t expect anything other than vague steering, an unsatisfactory manual gearbox and handling that lacks sparkle.
  • How much does the Volkswagen Polo cost?
  • We live in strange times. Today, an entry-level Volkswagen Polo costs around £1,500 less than a basic Ford Fiesta and £1,000 less than the Seat Ibiza. Granted, the entry-level Polo S is powered by an asthmatic 65hp engine and offers almost nothing in the way of tech and gadgets, but you still get the same build quality and rock-solid image. That said, you’ll pay significantly more for some must-have options and accessories, pushing the price of the superior trim levels deep into family hatchback territory.
