Volkswagen Polo Hatchback 1.4 CL 3d (1997/R) - Owner Review

No feedback from steering. Lots of bodyroll and understeer, even at modest speeds considering it's a fairly firm ride, though won't spring up any surprises.

Performance

3 out of 5

Not brilliant in town becouse of a poor performing first gear. Much better performance on motorways - can go above 100mph.

Reliability

Not as reliable as you would think a VW should be.

Very good. Has quality and classy looks that are understated and don't draw too much attention to itself. Should not date as much as a Ford.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Very comfortable, but a fairly firm ride.
