As one of the most premium players in the city car segment, and one of the best-selling models with more than 14 million cars sold to date, expectations are always high from Volkswagen Polo. But, we’re glad to report, the latest version, the 2018 VW Polo, is worthy of carrying that legacy.

It is hard to fault the new 2018 VW Polo. Technology, design, quality, practicality, performance, in all these aspects the little hatchback stands above the average of its class. I guess one could nitpick at the looks and those headlights, but beauty is subjective and you can’t dismiss all the good things about a product for slightly iffy styling. Some others may find the 12,975 euros starting price a bit on the dear side. But in terms of value, what you get for your money, the Polo still comes out on top.

Dr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Board of Management for the Volkswagen brand: “The Polo is a young, fresh car. It combines charisma with strong technology. No other car offers so much space for its size. This makes our Polo the number one compact, and it will remain number one.”
