2015 Volkswagen Polo GTI Review

You asked for it and they delivered: the Volkswagen Polo GTI manual is back!

2016 Volkswagen Polo GTI track day review - Sandown Raceway

Read the article here. At a little over $27k, the 2016 Volkswagen Polo GTI isn't just the GTI for those who can't afford a Golf GTI, it's a properly good thing in its own right. But we want to know how it’s going to handle the track here at Sandown Raceway. One of the most competitively priced and well-specced light hot hatches on sale, the 2016 Polo GTI comes standard with a 6...

City cars are enjoying a resurgence in Australia this year, with sales at their highest levels in recent history.

Abarth 595C v Volkswagen Polo GTI Comparison

The arrival of the new 2016 Abarth 595 has dropped the ownership doorway into Italy's famed scorpion shield from mid-$30k down to a basement-level $27,500 list price. Stripping back the frills, while liberally pilfering from the marque's go-fast parts bin, this 'regular 595' is the type of cut-priced sweet spot many buyers having been hankering for...

Volkswagen Polo v Peugeot 208 : Comparison Review

Until recently, Australians shopping for a new city car on a budget wouldn’t have even bothered kicking tyres in a European brand’s showroom. Light Euro tikes have typically been prohibitively expensive to purchase and frightfully costly to service, making their Japanese or South Korean counterparts the default choice...

Ford Fiesta ST v Volkswagen Polo GTI : Comparison Review

Rarely has Volkswagen’s iconic GTI badge been so humbled as it was in November 2013 when we last put the go-fast Polo in the ring with the Ford Fiesta ST. The big-name fighter with all the pomp and pedigree was made to look overpriced, under-equipped and lacking fun factor compared with the featherweight upstart that so resoundingly reminded us that simplicity and greatness are not mutually exclusive...

2018 Volkswagen Polo GTI to use old Golf GTI engine - report

The next-generation Volkswagen Polo GTI will reportedly use the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine from the fifth-generation Golf GTI. Sources from within Volkswagen have told AutoExpress the new Polo GTI will ditch the current car's 1.8-litre turbocharged mill in favour of a 2.0-litre turbo unit, said to be the 147kW/280Nm engine used in the fifth-generation Golf GTI...

2018 Volkswagen Polo spied undisguised in South Africa

A car that could well be the new Volkswagen Polo has been photographed completely undisguised in South Africa. The car seen here was spotted by a Cars.co.za reader, and certainly seems to be an undisguised pre-production version of the sixth-generation Polo. Up front, the new Polo features a conservative face that's heavily inspired by the larger Golf...

2012 Volkswagen Polo GTi Review

After owning a Ford Falcon XR6 for over three years, I thought it was time for a change. I decided to go for a 2012 Volkswagen Polo GTI with a seven-speed DSG, and what a change it was. Everything about the Polo, from the engine note to the interior, screams refinement. It has a little 1.4-litre four-cylinder unit that pumps out 132kW of power and 250Nm of torque...

2016 Volkswagen Polo GTi Review

Let me guess, most of your driving is done on your own, sitting in traffic on your way to work. While you dream of punting a sports car along a clear winding road, the reality is that, at best, you get this opportunity once a week. You feel you need a big car to carry people and belongings but again in reality, its invariably just you and your briefcase...

2010 Volkswagen Polo 7 Tsi Comfortline Review

I purchased my 2010 Polo 77TSI Comfortline 1.2 Manual at 108,000km for an absolute steal. It'd been well cared for and the seller was genuinely leaving the country. Upgrading from my beloved 2001 Mazda 323, first impressions were good. I could actually see at night and the wipers worked. However, I soon came to realise that all was not peachy...

2012 Volkswagen Polo GTi Review

So after a little over two years of ownership of my MY12.5 Polo Gti, I'm trading up to something a bit more exciting and faster. I thought it would be nice to to share my journey. It was October 13', I had just return to Sydney after being away studying & working in the UK...
