Volkswagen's sixth-generation Polo is here.

The first Polo built on the carmaker's new MQB platform, the car is powered by a 115hp/200Nm 1-litre turbocharged engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

For a small car, it has big features, including keyless entry, smartphone connectivity and six airbags.

Two versions are available - Comfortline and Beats. The Polo accelerates from zero to 100kmh in 9.5 seconds. Prices start at $89,900.

The polo is a very good small car.

 

But locally at this price range, people can be buying a compact sedan/hatchback rather than a subcompact


When VW brings in the T cross, probably that will attract more buyers.

No point paying the premium for a VW polo when you can get its sister Seat Ibiza at a lower price point

Well, this is 1.0 115bhp.

 

The late 80s Charade Gtti was 1.0 101bhp.

 

Sure the VW engine has a much nicer torque curve and adheres to today's emission standards but then its 35 years newer.

Difference lies in the torque.

I wonder how reliable is the DQ200 transmission now? I mean they had a recall couple of years back so problems with it should mostly be fixed?

That depends on individual luck. If intending to buy, just expect to factor in MU/clutch replacement every 3-5 years. Heavy start and stop traffic in sg will take its toll on them

Am comparing this with ibiza now.

For wife.. i tink as of today ibiza the higher spec model is 82k vs the polo normal spec at 89k.

Ibiza looks cute. But interior is plasticky but does packed a whole lot of features including auto cruise control. Nice infotainment system. Apple n andriod car play.

Polo i tink do have nice infortainment system. Not sure got carplay or not..

Inching towards polo. Prob dependant on oc now.

Wondering if polo or as a matter volksvagen got any disc off list price one ah. Hee
