Cars Advice 85% "The Polo really does feel like a slightly smaller Golf, which it mechanically is. Like the Golf, one of our test cars was also fitted with optional adjustable dampers, with a soft comfort setting, and a sports mode that added a hint of stiffness, without compromising basic comfort. Tick." Read more
WhichCar 90% "The Polo squeezes easily into small parking spots but feels like a bigger car on the road – in a good way, with reassuring roadholding." Read more
Cars Guide 75% "Well, this all-new sixth generation version is here to blow any size preconceptions away. It's significantly longer and wider, yet ever-so-slightly shorter than the model it replaces." Read more
Motoring 83% "And the sixth-generation Polo is even better, stronger, bigger and safer, with more driver assistance systems and more digital frippery." Read more
Car Showroom 83% "...the Polo’s softer setup and more pliant demeanour on the road is congruent with the impression one gets when actually sitting behind the wheel." Read more
