Volkswagen Polo

The Volkswagen Polo is the company's small hatchback model, closely related to the larger VW Golf.

Developed from the Audi 50 in the mid-1970s, the Volkswagen Polo went on to outlive its Audi relative and is now in its sixth generation.

The Volkswagen Polo is VW's value-oriented offering, with its entry level just below the $20,000 mark, though the hot hatch Volkswagen Polo GTI costs almost $33,000.

Volkswagen Polos are generally aimed at a slightly more premium-focused than some of its compact rivals, though the base Polo 70TSI Trendline can be had in manual.

The Ford Fiesta or Renault Clio, along with higher specifications of Suzuki Swift, are all rivals to the Volkswagen Polo.

Where are Volkswagen Polos made?

Most Australian Volkswagen Polos are built in South Africa, though the Polo GTI is built in Spain.

Why is the Volkswagen Polo expensive?

The Volkswagen Polo is positioned as a premium small hatchback, and therefore benefits from some 'nicer' features other Volkswagens also have. Having said that, its base model is still relatively inexpensive at under $20,000.

How do you turn on Volkswagen Polo fog lights?

Pull the light control dial out slightly and it should click into place with the front fog lights on.

How do you set radio stations in a Volkswagen Polo?

A Volkswagen Polo's radio presets can be altered by navigating to the station you wish to save, and pressing and holding the preset spot you wish to use.
