Volkswagen Polo Review
30 March 2015
The economical and powerful engine range is a big selling point for the Polo, with the 1.4 TDI diesel capable of over 80mpg. The Polo received a thorough overhaul in 2014, including a revised specification range, new engines from the up! city car and Golf-sourced in-car tech.
There are three- or five-door body styles, and trim levels comprise S, S A/C, SE, SE Design, SEL and BlueGT. Power comes from a choice of petrol engines and one diesel unit, with all bar the BlueGT's 148bhp 1.4-litre TSI sold in two stages of tune. In addition, there's a fuel efficient BlueMotion diesel, while a new Polo GTI with a 1.8-litre turbo petrol engine has recently arrived at the top of the range.
