Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (00-02)

Value

3 out of 5

Expensive when new, a better buy when used if it's been looked after. Top-of-the-range model.

Costs

2 out of 5

Parts can be expensive from a main dealer, but plenty of sources for cheaper OE components, such as Euro Car Parts.

Goes well, stops well, handles nicely through the bends too. No complaints.

Performance

Rapid! Average economy, but it is a GTi after all...

Reliability

3 out of 5

Some electrical issues but all fixed under warranty. Cambelt tensioner went early, again under warranty though.

I really like the look of this car, more so than the newer Mk6 Polo (2002-onwards). Nice.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Great seats! Very comfortable, even for lengthy trips.
