Well, while not as head-turning as the Ford, the Polo is certainly one of the classiest small VWs ever built. It gets a neat horizontal grille and sleek headlight arrangement from the Golf and Scirocco, which is mixed with chunky tail-lights and clean surfaces. And it’s much bigger than the old model, too. Measuring 36mm longer than before (taking the length to 3.95m) and 32mm wider with a 13mm lower roofline, the Polo has a very purposeful look. It’s also safe – VW predicts a maximum five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating.
Inside, the cabin takes a leaf out of the Golf’s book and makes another leap forward in doing so, combining the latter’s high centre console with neat silver-rimmed dashboard dials and a host of aluminium highlights. The quality of soft-touch materials on top-spec models provides a premium-feel environment.
