This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Volkswagen Polo Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Four-star Euro NCAP rating, twin airbags are standard on all cars, as is ABS. Immobiliser on all models, but alarm is only standard on the GTi.

Plenty of boot space for a small car, but don't expect to get a family's holiday luggage in without a squeeze. Top spec models get posh cupholders.
