The Polo. The essential hatchback.
Don't be fooled by its compact size and affordable price. The Polo has everything you are looking for in a hatchback, and much more. Its TSI engine is outstanding in terms of power and fuel efficiency, providing great performance in the heart of the city, on the expressways and everywhere else in between. Thanks to the efficient DSG dual-clutch automatic gearbox, fuel consumption is an extremely low 4.7 L/100km. And of course, with its stylish hatchback profile and chic exterior details, the Polo turns heads even when it's standing still.
Compact outside, big inside.
At under 4 metres long the Polo is really easy to manoeuvre and park, but intelligent design means it remains remarkably spacious inside. The bright, roomy cabin seats five adults comfortably and the large boot can be further expanded two ways - by adjusting the variable load floor or by folding down the 60:40 split rear seats. All the latest innovations are on board too, including LED headlamps, a touchscreen infotainment system and digital climate control.
Safe as houses.
You might think that only large cars can be safe. But the Polo proves otherwise. It has received the maximum 5-star rating from Euro NCAP, the world's leading safety performance assessment programme which tests both active and passive safety systems. Looking at the number of built-in safety features the Polo has, it is easy to see why - Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), six airbags, 3-point seat belts for all occupants and ISOFIX child seat mounting points all come as standard.
