amerry's review of Volkswagen Polo 1.4TDI

★★★★☆

“Good little hatch! Better drive and ride than the...”

Written on: 02/11/2007 by amerry (1 review written)

Good Points
Great fuel economy, and good practicality. Only problem is the interior is a bit grey like the weather! My one is the Polo Dune so it has got all the goodies on it, but a huge let down was the rear bench. Good handling thanks to the larger wheels but it does take away comfort on those ever present sleeping policeman. Drives well around town and even better on the motorways, but lacks torque around the 1500-2000rpm so you constantly have to change to 1st gear when traveling at 10mph.

Bad Points
No 60:40 split on rear seats. Dull interior dashboard, needs a bit of glamour!Sounds like a tractor at the traffic lights.

General Comments
Good little hatch! Better drive and ride than the fiesta but looks a little bit too cute, for my liking. Haven't had any faults as yet, but dreading the day because the VW dealerships are not pleasant people to deal with once you have bought the car from them.

great review, the bad points are ones that tend to get overlooked so thanks for noting them, and also the lack of torque at low revs could be an annoyance, tho the number of times this will affect me will be very minimal. But is another excellent point to note. Thanks
