The latest version of the Volkswagen Polo is a decent effort to improve a car that had previously exceeded its sell-by date, according to one review.
Writing for Car Magazine, Georg Kacher remarks that the Volkswagen Polo 1.2 TSI has reached a level where it can be held in competition with some of the top-rated superminis including the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa.
Mr Kacher also reveals that the new Polo bears some resemblance to the latest Volkswagen Golf, as it includes "similar rectangular front lamps, square rear lights and a boxy stance".
Meanwhile, all Volkswagen Polo buyers should see their vehicle fitted with 14-inch alloy wheels, power steering, electric front windows and central locking.
Those motorists not wanting to buy a car that will substantially harm the environment may also be pleased to know that the 1.2-litre Polo is capable of achieving 51.4 miles per gallon of fuel on a combined cycle.
Overall, the vehicle was awarded five stars by the review for the ‘feelgood factor’ it provided for motorists.
According to Volkswagen, the Polo is "stylish and economical" and provides motorists with "a lot of car for a small price tag".
