Volkswagen Polo Hatchback 1.6 GTi 3d (2000/X) - Owner Review

Safe and secure handling that's good fun! No problems in the wet! the GTi got stiffened sports suspension and good brakes! Gears fine! steering wheel a tad thin for grip! always look forward to driving mine!

Value

4 out of 5

Got it from VW dealer for a respectable price! you will struggle to get the performance, looks, quality and climate control from any other of the hot hatches!

Costs

4 out of 5

I believe in paying for quality! but it's not that expensive really! fuel consumption is great! loves shell Optimax! insurance always a pain!

Performance

4 out of 5

The 1600 unit is torquey and revvy at the same time! powers always there! safe over taking! learnt to ignore the ""quoted 0-60 times"" - 7.5 seconds when tested for fun!

Reliability

4 out of 5

Niggles with the CD autochanger put right under warranty! other little niggles but not persistent!

Image

4 out of 5

Mine is in red which looks sortie, nice standard alloys! always quality image with VW GTI stuck on the car!

Comfort

3 out of 5

If you treat the interior space as a coupes' you'll be ok! seats are firm but offer a nice support! ride is hard but not too tiring! i love the interior blue glow! engine noise is loud at speed but i want to hear it!
