Mini Golf isn't just a fun game. It's also the best descriptor for the imminent 2018 Volkswagen Polo, which takes the company's smallest model (in Australia) to new heights, in terms of space, in-car tech and dynamic sophistication.

2015 Volkswagen Polo 81 TSI Comfortline Review

The light car segment is fiercely competitive, and at eight years old, the current Volkswagen Polo is one of the oldest in its class. Despite an extensive facelift in 2014 it is still the same car underneath, so the question remains: should it still be on your shopping list? As you will read, that answer is, yes...

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...

2014 Volkswagen Polo GTi Review

Partner and I have had this 2013 MY14 Polo GTI for 18 months now. We both love it. I'm a car nut, we had an Alfa 156 V6 previously and as much as I loved it, reliability and service costs were... Alfa-ish, But still worth it if you ask me, maybe not the Mrs' though. So we wanted new, practical, small-ish, yet still had that x factor/sense of fun and urge when you want it to be fun...

2009 Volkswagen Polo Pacific Review

Has VW built DELIBERATE FAULTS into ECU that are time delayed? VW has proved it is CROOKED about emissions so what else has it LIED about? Crash Tests, petrol emissions or BUILT IN ELECTRONIC FAULTS. They thought they could get away with dodgy emissions software so why not other electronic faults to make $MILLIONS...

2013 Volkswagen Polo Review

It's fair to say Volkswagen's 5th generation Polo GTI has been well received since its launch in 2010. Consecutive 'Bang-For-Your-Buck' awards from Motor Magazine and a sharp sticker price sent initial waiting lists on the longer side of 12 months...

2014 Volkswagen Polo Review

I have a confession to make- this review is about my wife's choice of wheels. As a hopeless car nut, my dreams contain soaring Italian V8s, planet-sized brakes and the smell of an E Type's leather. The 2014 Volkswagen Polo Comfortline has none of these things, and that suits my partner just fine. Just don't think that this makes it a boring appliance...

2012 Volkswagen Polo Review

This little Pepper Grey nugget is the 2012 VW Polo Trendline, 5 Door, 5 speed. We've affectionately named him Marco. It has aggressive, sharp styling lines on the front and back lights which accompany the body and rim 'look-alike' hubcaps. Despite the wider bodied appearance, the Polo still has a nimble sense of hot hatchery in the design...

2014 Volkswagen Polo Review

Volkswagen's Polo GTI has, since its relatively recent introduction in 2007, been a nameplate that has shot up the chartts in popularity and now, even despite the introduction of several talented newcomers, is still the perennial choice for the discerning hot hatch aficionado. The elements upon which the success story of the “baby GTI” lie are as unique as you can find in a performance vehicle...
