The Volkswagen Polo is just like a smaller version of the Volkswagen Golf. That means it has good although slightly conservative looks, and is well built inside and out. A revised version is on the way, and while it isnt as much fun to drive as the Golf, it still feels more grown up than rivals like the Kia Rio and Vauxhall Corsa. Wed advise avoiding the more basic models with underpowered engines that become strained and noisy at high speeds. All cars get a DAB digital radio, electric front windows and central locking, and some models even manage 81mpg fuel economy. All Polos have a fivestar Euro NCAP rating for safety.
