New Volkswagen Polo 2018 review – do you really need a Golf? | Mat Watson Reviews

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


The all new Volkswagen Polo has been a constant challenger towards the top of its class since it was introduced in 1975. Now in its sixth generation, it’s bigger, sturdier and more grown-up than ever. So grown-up, in fact, that it makes me wonder whether or not there’s any need to get a Golf anymore! Watch my launch review to find out if the new Polo is all the Volkswagen you’ll ever need.

I live in Brazil and I have a Golf Comfortline 1.4tsi. A new Highline Golf with Exclusive addons costs 117.000 reais. New Polo will arrive in 26th september, Highline model estimated cost will be 65-70.000 reais. What's the point, VW? Really? Almost double the price, for 90% of benefits? Can anyone explain to me this marketing phenomenon? Polo went out of production in Brazil from 2014 to 2017. Why, again, VW? Are the representative from VW in Brazil drunk or what?

Hey Mat! Huge fan from Greece with a video and/or advice request. Can you do a top-n video for the best hatch (or family hatch) for long journeys? I'm looking for the quietest travelling hatchback for sale right now. That's usually impossible to tell with a couple of test-drives. Can you please help???

You can get it with all LED headlights or xenon lol.. Xenon were on bicycles in the early 90s lol,but due to them being to slow to heat up, to fragile and to be honest to stone age they were ditched after a few years and replaced by far superior LED lights. I can't understand why xenon are still on some cars there outdated 20yrs ago.

But what if you want a VW car the size of the current polo? So there is no size in between the UP/fox and polo/golf now?

Dlaczego tak dużo typków w Polsce jeździ starymi, gównianymi BMW (ponad 10 lat, czyli < 2007) i podniecają się, że to fajne samochody?
Przecież to tanie złomy, które mogę sobie kupić za 1 pensję. Najbardziej dresiarskie i ohydne samochody świata dla debili, którzy nie mają inteligentnych zainteresowań, więc szlalają się po mieście bez większego celu… tylko, żeby pojeździć tymi rupieciami. Jak tylko zobaczę takie gówniane stare BMW, to odwracam wzrok.

I'd have one if all the electronic shite was ripped out. None of it appeals to me at all.
