Volkswagen Polo Hatchback 1.4 Match 3d (2012/12) - Owner Review

Even though it is a 3-door it is very easy to get in and out of the back and the boot is a very good size.

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
July 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
The deal I got was excellent and I even got a few extras thrown in for no extra cost. The part-exchange on my old car was reasonable considering the condition it was in!

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
The finance deal that was offered was excellent with a dealer deposit contribution and it also came with a year's free insurance.

What was the dealer like?
The dealer was extremely helpful and constantly kept in contact during the whole order process.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It is extremely easy to drive especially around town but when on the motorway it is incredibly refined with plenty of power to keep up in the fast lane. On country roads it feels safe and controlled whilst allowing you to smile as you throw it about.

What's it like to park?
It is reasonably easy to park with very light steering although the rear pillars are quite big. The mirrors are a decent size though to parking is never a problem.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?

What's most practical about your car?
Even though it is a 3-door it is very easy to get in and out of the back and the boot is a very good size.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
My favourite piece of kit on the car is the Ipod connection which displays all of my music through the screen and the sound quality is excellent.
