A subtly stylish, small hatchback, the Volkswagen Polo was first launched back in 1975. Now in its sixth generation, it’s a likeable, low-key, 4-door family car with a roomy interior. Its engine can be underpowered at times, but responsive steering makes it a relaxing ride around city streets. The most recent version of the car is impressively lightweight, and there are all kinds of customisation options available. If you care about comfort and want a safe driving experience, the Polo is hard to beat.

What we think about the Volkswagen Polo
It might not be the most breathtaking vehicle to take for a spin, but its smooth handling makes the Volkswagen Polo a solid choice for everyday errands. It’s also ideal for families, with a roomy, comfortable interior that balances style and practicality.
Comfortable and roomy interior
Lots of attractive options
Not the most fun on the road
The 2018 Polo is a 5-seater, offering a number of different 1.0-litre engines, most of which are petrol-driven. A range of trims – including those offering alloy wheels – are available, but upgrade options are relatively limited compared to other ranges.
Our verdict of the Volkswagen Polo
4.5 / 5 Gumtree rating
For drive comfort, the Polo is one of the best hatchbacks available, with great handling and sleek style. The weak engine could be a deal-breaker for some.
