VOLKSWAGEN POLO SE manual 3 door hatch

Volkswagen describes the fourth generation
Polo hatchback as representing “quality in a
concentrate” and that’s pretty apt, considering
it’s arguably one of the best quality cars in the
small hatchback class.

For example, Volkswagen says that the new
bodyshell has best-in-class torsional rigidity,
with significantly enhanced safety qualities.
The new Polo scored four stars in Euro NCAP
crash tests.
Everything about the body spells high
quality; from the excellent paint and trim
finish, to the solid feel of the doors and rear
hatch when closing, and to the small panel
gaps that are achieved through laser welding
processes. The body, which is made from
high-strength galvanized steel, carries a 12
year anti-corrosion perforation warranty.
However, the Polo isn’t quite as
‘concentrated’ as it used to be. The new body,
with its stylish looks, is longer, wider and
taller. This has brought some welcome
improvements to interior space, both for
occupants and their luggage.
Polo buyers can choose between three model
types. There’s a base (price leader) Polo 3-
door, and there are S and SE variants in three
and five door versions. Automatic or manual
transmission is available on all models.
