VW Polo review

NGC verdict 16.07.2015

Volkswagen’s Polo supermini has always been the sensible choice for those wanting a sturdy, refined small car and with a sharp face-lift that hints at the sporty Scirocco. With a raft of new Euro 6 compliant engines, it’s even more a ‘baby’ version of the Golf.

A new infotainment system with the ability to mirror apps off a smart phone brings the car right up to date. Pick the right model for you and it will be a great purchase. Resale values are strong despite only a three year warranty.
