Volkswagen Polo Hatchback 1.3 L 3d (1994/M) - Owner Review

The car handles well. You can throw it around a bit and it tends not to complain. Steering is heavy without PAS when you park it in tight places.

Image

4 out of 5

A good looking car in 3 door format. I would give it 5 if it wasn't for its 'grandad' image.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Comfortable car for a base model. Electric mirrors are a nice touch.
