Not really for an enthusiastic driver, but can be fun. The ride is excellent and refined for such a small car.

Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (00-02)

Value

4 out of 5

Lots of very nice features not found on similar cars. Hold their value well, so seem to make sense.

Costs

5 out of 5

Very economical, even when driven enthusiastically. Insurance very good too.

Driving

4 out of 5

Not really for an enthusiastic driver, but can be fun. The ride is excellent and refined for such a small car.

Performance

4 out of 5

Given that it's a 1.4 the performance isn't so bad. If driven harder then can go at a reasonable pace and can equally cruise along at lower revs.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Mechanically, has been without a hitch so far, but the electrics aren't quite as good.

5 out of 5

Excellent, good looking car and people still ask if it's brand new.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Very comfortable all round. The ride and refinement are top notch and the overall quality of the interior is excellent. This model has a shaped rear bench too, so rear passengers also have comfort. Leg room isn't the best, but it is a small car.

Security

Central locking is about it, as standard.

Service

3 out of 5

Service really should be better from VW. I haven't been in the situation of a serious problem, but the dealers should be trying harder. They often come across rude and are expensive.
