New Volkswagen Polo 2014 review

Auto Express

24 Apr 2014

It’s not just under the bonnet where the Polo has been tweaked, the ‘new’ car featuring a far more comprehensive equipment list as standard. All come with a ESC electronic stability control, Hill Hold and Automatic Post-Collision Braking System to increase safety, while optionally the Polo is offered with a driver alert system, adaptive cruise control with front assist and city emergency braking. It’s the infotainment enhancements that’ll appeal most though, every Polo now coming with Volkswagen’s latest modular touchscreen with proximity sensor. It reacts to swiping movements like your smartphone and offers plenty of connectivity options, apps, DAB radio, USB and Bluetooth. SE spec gains a bigger 6.5-inch version of the screen - over the 5-inch one in S trim - while it’s possible to option sat nav for a further £700.
