Volkswagen Polo Dune (04-08)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I feel a bit out of place with it, as it looks like a mams car and I am a 19 year old man.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
My friends think it's odd and a bit different compared to other polls as it does stand out because of the alloys and 4x4 look.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would get the diesel version as it has more power.

What are you likely to buy next?
Anything with a turbo diesel.

1 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It is very poor to drive, the acceliration is very bad, you can have the throttle pressed down and nothing will happen for a few seconds and it can feel dangerous at times. I thought there was something wrong with it but I asked a vw showroom manager if it was normal and he said all petrol dunes are sluggish.

What's it like to park?
Very easy to park, it has great visibility.

The 17 inch bbs alloys.
