The Volkswagen Polo has been much improved in MK6 model form. Jonathan Crouch drives it.
With 14 million cars sold to date, the Volkswagen Polo model line is one of the most successful in supermini history. This MK6 version is larger than before, better equipped and more personalisable. Features like a digital instrument panel and a whole raft of camera-driven safety kit also borrow much from the class above.
Why would you buy a Volkswagen Polo? You wouldn't buy it on price, because there are many rival superminis that cost less. Many of these cars will have more equipment inside them. Some will even be nicer to drive. That much-vaunted Volkswagen build quality is, statistically at least, something that the Japanese and Koreans covered off some time ago. So what's the appeal? It's simple. The Polo is all about understated refinement or, to put it another way, conspicuously not trying too hard to impress. Now this is a very hard trick to carry off. Try too hard and this Volkswagen loses its cool. Don't try hard enough and the car looks like a complacent trinket for posers, which is possibly even less desirable. So with this current sixth generation Polo, the Wolfsburg brand is looking to land it square in that profitable sweet spot.
Almost every car has its unique selling points. With this Polo, these lie in quality and comfort, delightful damping having long been a traditional attribute in a Volkswagen supermini. Given that even the previous rather crudely platformed version of this model managed to cruise over potholes and tarmac tears that would upset most of its rivals, we expected that the stiff sophistication of this sixth generation design's all-new MQB A0 chassis would lift it even further clear of its competitors in this regard. Which is, by and large, how it's turned out. We were told that this new generation Polo would ride like a much larger car and sure enough it does, easily shrugging off pock-marked urban surfaces. And that's despite the lack of anything particularly advanced in terms of suspension design. Certainly, many competitor brands are going to want to know how a straightforward MacPherson strut-front and torsion beam-rear set-up can deliver damping this good. It handles higher speed undulations brilliantly too - one writer described the response as being akin to 'riding on jewelled bearings'. Even larger wheel sizes don't seem to upset it much. And engines? Well all the options are now three cylinders, petrol-powered and 1.0-litre in size. Your choices start with a three-cylinder 1.0-litre MPI unit with 80PS, which sits below two 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI engines with either 95 or 110PS. 7-speed DSG automatic transmission is optional on those TSI petrol models.
So low key is the Polo's styling that the changes made to this MK6 model may be lost on some customers. Perhaps more obvious though, is this sixth generation design's larger size. It's now only slightly shorter than a MK4 Golf used to be and, thanks to a longer wheelbase than that car, significantly larger inside. To be specific, this MK6 Polo is 81mm longer than its predecessor, making it now over 4m long. It's now also slightly lower in stance and 69mm wider. Volkswagen thinks that the resulting stretched silhouette is 'more masculine', you decide. In profile, the new styling is defined by an arrow-shaped 'tornado' double line, while at the front, there's a smarter grille flanked by headlamps that can be optionally ordered with full-LED beams. Inside, the vertically-orientated dashboard of the previous model has been replaced with horizontal architecture and a higher placement for the new centre-dash infotainment screen; this monitor varies in size between 6.5 and 8-inches, depending on the variant you select. An upper cross-panel flows across the dash into the doors and can be colour-personalised to suit your taste. As an option, buyers can replace the usual dash dials with Volkswagen's 'Active Info Display' TFT virtual screen gauges.
List pricing for this car actually starts from around £17,000. In practice though, it's pretty difficult to imagine many Polo owners paying less than £18,000 and most will be shelling out a figure somewhere in the £19,000 to £20,000 bracket. The range kicks off with 'Match', 'beats' and 'United' trim levels, all of which can be had in their most affordable form with the 80PS 1.0-litre powerplant we're tying here. If you can stretch to the altermative TSI 1.0-litre turbo engine, you'll also get the opportunity to spend another £1,350 on Volkswagen's 7-speed DSG auto gearbox, available whether you choose the 95PS version of this engine or the 110PS variant of this unit that comes with plusher models. 'SEL' and 'R-Line' trim levels round off the range. 'Match'-spec customers get the 'Car-Net' 'App-Connect' system that allows use of the 'Apple CarPlay' and 'Android Auto'/'MirrorLink' systems that enable you to 'mirror' the display of your smartphone onto the centre-dash screen. All 'Match' models get 15-inch alloy wheels, an alarm, body-coloured door handles and mirrors, a more sophisticated trip computer, rear electric windows and a variable-height boot floor. Plus the split-folding rear seat and power-adjustable mirrors missing from the base spec. So there you have it: 'Match'-spec gives you pretty much everything you really need in this Volkswagen. And if you want a little more, there's an alternative 'United' variant with the same engines that comes with standard navigation and access to Volkswagen's clever 'We Connect Plus' app for remote control of vehicle functions. Plus, with 'United' spec, you get smarter 'Dublin'-style 15-inch alloy wheels, auto headlamps and wipers, cruise control and 'Atlantic Blue' interior trim.
All of the Polo engines on offer are decently frugal.Let's get to the WLTP-rated fuel and CO2 stats. With the base unit, the 80PS version of the 1.0-litre MPI engine - which is what we've got here - you're supposed to be able to achieve up to 51.5mpg on the combined cycle and up to 125g/km of CO2. In contrast, in a 95PS 1.0 TSI turbo variant, those figures improve to 52.7mpg and 122g/km with a manual gearbox, improving slightly to 53.8mpg and 119g/km if you opt for that 1.0-litre TSI engine with a manual gearbox and 110PS. What else? Well, the three year/60,000 mileage warranty isn't anything to write home about in a marketplace where other rivals offer more. But there is a choice of either 'Fixed' or 'Flexible' servicing regimes, depending on the mileage you expect to cover, the 'Fixed' package appropriate for cars covering under 10,000 miles a year. Residual values will continue to be strong: with the previous generation version, you could expect to get between 44 and 51% of your original purchase price back after three years or 36,000 miles. We don't expect that kind of showing to change much this time round.
The Volkswagen Polo formula has worked well to date, but competition in the supermini sector has ramped up not by a notch or two but by a great hulking leap thanks to the arrival of cars in this class like new versions of the Ford Fiesta, the Citroen C3, the SEAT Ibiza and the Kia Rio. Beating models of that kind isn't as easy for Volkswagen as it used to be. The Polo previously appealed on classy minimalism but most people these days want slick electronics and a greater feeling of design input inside their small cars. Volkswagen has responded and done so with typical thoroughness. Little about the Polo's dynamics or efficiency really represents a best in class showing. But what makes this car so good is that it's there or thereabouts in most categories but doesn't get beaten by anyone when it comes to perceived quality. That's key. That reassuring feeling that your second-largest capital purchase is money well spent ought to guarantee this car's place at the top table.
By Jonathan Crouch
This sixth generation Volkswagen Polo supermini is cleverer, smarter, classier and certainly more charismatic and confident this time round, featuring some fresh new engines and a bit of extra hi-tech in the Golf-style cabin to please loyal buyers. Ultimately though, it's still the carefully conservative choice it's always been. Low key, but likeable.
3dr/5dr Hatch (1.0, 1.5 TSI petrol / 1.6 TDI diesel)
Supermini fashions come and go but one model seems to remain impervious to fickle fancy. A Volkswagen Polo is somehow above all of that. And if you buy one, you'll probably think yourself to be so too. Over 14 million Polos have been sold since the car first went on sale back in 1975, having previously begun life badged as an Audi A50. This sixth generation Polo design, launched late in 2017, is as you might expect a very big deal for the brand - in more ways than one. For one thing, it's by far the largest Polo to date - far bigger for example, than earlier Golfs. For another, its sales significance remains huge for the Wolfsburg maker, given that almost 10% of all the cars the company has ever made have been Polos. So no, not every important new model launched these days is an SUV. This one only sires an SUV, it's underpinnings forming the basis for Volkswagen's T-Cross, the brand's smallest offering in the lifestyle crossover segment. Most folks though, will still want just a straightforward Polo, which is why the Wolfsburg maker continues to expect that this model will account for around 25% of its total sales in our market. That's despite intensified supermini segment competition, primarily from the 7th generation Ford Fiesta but also from contenders like SEAT's fifth generation Ibiza, car which shares this one's sophisticated new Volkswagen Group MQB A0 architecture. That platform facilitates the increase in exterior dimensions we mentioned and provides for what's claimed to be a more sophisticated 'big car'-style driving experience: we'll see. And there's also plenty else to keep this Polo popular, with some fresh engines, a sharper look and much higher standards of electronic safety provision. Inside, the completely new cabin can now be colour-personalised and delivers media connectivity for the modern age, including the option of a hi-tech digital instrument cluster. Plus for the first time, the GTI model at the top of the range is now a really credible rival for the segment's finest hot hatches. Elsewhere in the range, this car can still be the conservatively clever choice it always has been. If that appeals, then stay with us as we put this car to the test.
Volkswagen doesn't mess about too much with the fundamental aesthetics of its core models. Just as a Golf should always be recognisable as a Golf, so it is with the Polo. Yet within these constraints, it was also necessary to move the design of this car forward. Volkswagen says the styling of this 'AW/BZ'-series sixth generation version is more 'masculine' and - whisper it - even a little 'charismatic'. It's certainly bigger - about the same size as the fourth generation Golf that was sold by the brand until 2003. With the MK6 model, this five-door body style was the only one on offer, the three-door version having been consigned to history after a production run of 42 years. As soon as you get in, just as in a Golf, you'll sense all the hallmarks of a really well made car, with the same glass-fronted 8.0-inch 'Composition Media' infotainment touchscreen you'd find on Volkswagen's larger family hatch dominating the dash. In place of the somewhat old fashioned vertically-stacked dash of the previous Polo, a more horizontally-orientated design was based around a central fascia panel that positions all of the key controls on a higher plane that's more in your direct line of sight. That panel is fundamental to a revolutionary move in Volkswagen interior design - the availability of dash and associated centre stack trimming that isn't predominantly black. 'Reef Blue', 'Energetic Orange', 'Silver Silk' and 'Deep Iron' colour options were all made available to original customers. And in the back? There ought to have been big improvements here too, given this sixth generation model's 92mm increase in total wheelbase. Which is pretty much how it turned out, though if you're familiar with the previous version of this car, you may find that this MK6 model's higher waistline and shallower rear window make it feel a little more enclosed than before. Particularly impressive is the improvement in shoulder room, though, as with rival superminis, that's not enough to make this bench in any way really suitable for the transport of three adults. And out back? Well, it's mostly all good news. Avoid entry-level trim and you'll get an adjustable-height floor that can be re-positioned at a lower level if you've taller loads to carry. In terms of overall boot size, we're talking 355-litres, which is a massive 75-litres more than the MK5 model and 63-litres larger than the trunk you get in a rival Ford Fiesta.
Prices for this early MK6 Polo start at around £8,700, which gets you a '17-plate 1.0 MPI 64PS variant with base 'S; trim, values then rising to around £12,700 for a later '20-plate car. Allow a premium of around £300 for plusher 'SE' trim. We'd try and stretch to the turbocharged 1.0 TSI unit, which values in 95PS form from around £9,700, which gets you a '17-plate 'SE'-spec model, with values rising to around £14,200 for a later '20-plate car; add on a premium of around £1,100 for a plusher 'SEL'-spec model with the gutsier 115PS version of this engine. If you want the rare 1.6 TDI diesel, values start at around £10,000 for a '17-plate 'SE'-spec car, with values rising to around £14,700 for a later '20-plate car. Add around £750 more for plusher 'SEL' trim. Finally, for the even rarer petrol 2.0 TSI GTI hot hatch model, values start at around £12,100 for a '17-plate car, rising to around £18,100 for one of the last '20-plate cars.
As with any supermini, check for interior child damage. Check the alloy wheels for scratches. And look for signs of accident damage such as uneven panel gaps. Also look for any parking damage, such as scuffs to bumpers and kerbed wheels, because only the higher-spec versions were fitted with front and rear parking sensors. With the entry-level S model, remember that you won't be able to connect your smartphone to the infotainment system because it lacks the App Connect option, so try and stretch to a better specced variant if that's an issue. There were various manufacturer recalls you should know about. Certain Polos made between May 2017 and October 2018 were subject to a recall that relates to a design flaw with the rear seatbelts. On cars made in October 2017, the travel in the handbrake might increase due to the adjuster working loose. With Polos made between October 2019 and February 2020, there's a risk that oil may get into the brake servo, so the whole system will need to be checked over by a VW technician in case there's oil in the system. Make sure that all these recalls have been attended to if the model you're looking at has been affected.
(approx based on a 2018 Polo 1.0 MPI 64PS - Ex Vat) An oil filter is in the £6-£13 bracket. An air filter is in the £7 bracket and a pollen filter costs typically between £6 and £11. A water pump is around £120-£150. Front brake pads sit in the £17-£47 bracket; rears will sit in the £12-£22 bracket. Front brake discs sit in the £44 bracket; rear discs are about £23-£33. A rear lamp is around £46. A headlamp is around £172. A wiper is around £6-£12.
We were told that this sixth generation Polo would ride like a much larger car and sure enough it does, easily shrugging off pock-marked urban surfaces. The sophistication that delivers this showing doesn't lie in intricate suspension design but in the light, stiff MQB A0 chassis that this MK6 model shares with other Volkswagen Group superminis like SEAT fifth generation Ibiza. Through the corners, this Polo isn't quite as agile as its Spanish cousin or a rival Ford Fiesta - the rather light steering doesn't deliver a huge amount in terms of meaningful feedback - but body movements are well controlled and wider tracks deliver plenty of front end grip. As for engines, well almost all buyers in our market order this Polo with petrol power - specifically the 999cc three cylinder unit that in this period featured in so many compact Volkswagen Group models. At the foot of the range, it appears in the normally aspirated MPI form, with either 65PS or 75PS. A better option though, if you can stretch to it, is the turbocharged TSI version of this unit, available with either 95PS and a 5-speed gearbox or 115PS and a 6-speed gearbox. DSG auto transmission was also offered to TSI customers - and to those who chose the other perkier petrol options, a 150PS 1.5 TSI EVO powerplant and the 200PS 2.0-litre engine fitted to the flagship GTI hot hatch model. Two minority-interest 1.6-litre TDI diesel variants, developing either 80PS or 95PS, were also available. Even the 1.0-litre petrol unit can deliver diesel levels of economy though, the 65PS MPI version capable of 60.1mpg on the combined cycle and 108g/km (both NEDC figures).
So, where does all that leave us? Well, in one of those situations where everything changed - but nothing was really very different. This sixth generation Polo proved to be a big step on from its predecessor in just about every area you could name. But if you want one, the reasons why will probably be much as they've always been with this car: it feels a quality cut above its rivals. The quality element in question though, moved forward quite significantly with this 'AW/BZ' MK6 model, which might make quite a difference if you're one of those buyers who's been waiting for an excuse to buy a smaller car, but has yet to come across one with the kind of sophistication and technology found in something larger. If so, this sixth generation Polo might well be the model that finally persuades you to downsize. It feels more refined, more premium and more mature than any supermini we've previously driven. The result might be little more than a shrunken Golf, but then that's exactly what most buyers want. Indeed, you could choose one over that larger family hatch and really not lose out very much in terms of practicality, drive dynamics or even the style statement you'll make on the high street. Ah yes, the 'style statement' some versions of this sixth generation model try to make. There's probably a place for it, but plenty of rivals do the trendy lifestyle vibe a lot less self-consciously. Ultimately, the typical Polo person doesn't really buy this Volkswagen in order to make a fashion statement. Which is why he or she will almost certainly end up with the kind of conservatively-finished variant we've been trying here. That conservative mindset extends into the issue of drive dynamics too, so it probably won't matter that a handful of rivals feel more engaging than this one through the corners. Of greater importance to likely buyers is that few of these competitors will be more comfortable in day to day use. At the end of the day, there's much to be said for an extra touch of quality and class. Seek those as your priorities and you'll find this little supermini more than happy to oblige.
