Volkswagen Polo Hatchback 1.4 SE (75ps) 3d (2000/X) - Owner Review

Sprightly handling offering good levels of grip and feedback. Ride height could have been 20-30 mills lower, had this done myself.

Sprightly handling offering good levels of grip and feedback. Ride height could have been 20-30 mills lower, had this done myself.

Performance

3 out of 5

75ps for a 1.4 is a bit disappointing, does 115mph though. The 1.0 must be a dog.

Reliability

2 out of 5

More faults then you'd expect for a car of its age and mileage (48,000).

Image

4 out of 5

Image is apparently not as good as a Peugeot 206, we strongly disagree.

Comfort

4 out of 5

For the size of car it is exceptionally comfortable, even on regular commute between London and York.
